Sylar - Star - August 26, 2015


Meet the biggest flirt at the SPCA — Sylar! This 1.5-year-old American Bulldog weighs in at 81 pounds of PURE LOVE! When I met him yesterday, he completely smiled, wagged not only his tail, but his entire body, too! You can just tell that this is a good dog!

Want to get more exercise? Action is Sylar’s middle name! He’s got tons of energy; and just like the sun, he’s burning and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He enjoys playtime in the yard and wading in a baby pool to cool off and at the end of the day, he’ll still want to play! Right now, he knows sit and we’re teaching him a few more commands because we know he’s a brainy guy! We can only imagine how much he’ll be able to learn once he gets quality one-on-one attention from his new family.

Make Sylar YOUR #AdoptionMiracle this summer! Visit him at the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! For more information, call SPCA Adoptions: 716-629-3531!

Remember...SPCA kittens and cats 20 weeks and older have a waived adoption fee through the month of August! Details here!

Sargey and Coco
Sargey and Coco

Sargey and Coco are inseparable buddies who came to the SPCA because their family is going through a divorce and couldn’t keep them.

Sargey is a beautiful 10-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi/spaniel mix and her sister from another mister is Coco, the almost 5-year-old puggle! Both of these girls are extremely sweet and well-rounded who seem content to be by your side enjoying whatever activity you are doing. 

“Don't sweat the small stuff!” seems to be their mottos! Both of these ladies know how to take life in stride! You can tell that they received a lot of love in their previous home because they enjoy being with people. Both are all smiles and wags when they’re getting attention and after visiting with them for even a few seconds, you’ll quickly learned that these two girls are total lap opportunists: they’ll sit on any lap that’s made available to them! 

Come meet them at the SPCA, 205 Ensminger Road in Tonawanda!

*What is Yelp for Help? Well...not every animal comes to the SPCA Serving Erie County healthy and adoptable. Countless animals suffer from life-threatening illnesses and injuries, usually the result of being abused or neglected. They require immediate...and expensive...veterinary care that is often beyond our resources.

*Once treatment is administered, many require additional medical attention or intense socialization and behavior modification.

*The community-funded Yelp for Help program offsets the SPCA’s cost of caring for, and eventually making possible successful adoptions of, these special animals.

*Can you give these animals in need the chances they deserve? Save lives today. Together, we can help the animals who need us most! Become a Yelp For Help donor ! You can even become a YELP HELPER, giving on a monthly basis! To give by phone, call Nancy at the SPCA: 716-629-3523!

Vader - 8-28-2015

Talk about an attention-getter! Vader is a gorgeous and striking Great Dane! And there's such a loyalty there - such a desire to find someone to devote himself entirely to! Vader is a faithful companion to the extreme and he loves everyone he meets. He lived with children  and other dogs before he came to the SPCA. Born in 2007, he likes to play, run, and have lots of fun. Even at his size (126 pounds!) he's a terrific, easy leash walker, and we think he'll have a lot of fun on hikes and play dates with other dogs. 

Make Vader your #AdoptionMiracle! Visit him at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter, 205 Ensminger Road in Tonawanda. 

Have you taken the DOG BISCUIT CHALLENGE yet? If not, consider yourself challenged! Dine, donate, or do both to help Paws in the Park Sept. 26 at Beaver Island! All the details are here!
