*Top photo: AMY (left) is a mama guinea pig who is incredibly social, outgoing, and who needs to be adopted with her daughter, LEELA, 2 months old. Why? Because Leela was born blind, and as every good mom, Amy has completely taken over teaching Leela how to be a polite, social, fun-loving creature!
*Bottom photo: BENDER (left) is another one of Amy's babies who needs to be adopted with his brother, FRY, also blind...and they need to be adopted together for the exact same reason! Fry follows Bender everywhere!
*From their personalities, you'd never guess Leela or Fry are blind. As long as they're with their sighted companions, their blindness won't be a concern - both pairs are completely bonded, and as long as they're together, they'll keep each other happy, which will keep your family happy! They're so much fun to watch together...playing, eating, even cuddling up sleeping next to each other. Adopt one (or both!) pairs and learn why guinea pigs are such amazing pets.
*Call the SPCA and set up an appointment to meet these little ones: 716-629-3537!
*The dream: to have a loving dog at your side, facing the world with you, tail wagging, heart full of love and affection and devotion for YOU. Waiting for you at the door, curling up with you at night, and the dog's definition of a perfect day is day merely spent in your presence, wherever you are. If this is YOUR dream, then ROMAN is the dog for you.
*This boy was found in Cheektowaga, and if you think you can see his gentle soul through his eyes in this photograph, you should meet him in person. If Roman was a person, we'd call him "kind-hearted." A quiet nature, a content demeanor...there is no question that someone's life will be enriched immeasurably when he or she brings Roman into his or her world.
*Roman is just four, seems calm and passive and happy around other dogs (Meet and Greets are still recommended if there is a dog at home), and will remind you why a dog truly is man's best friend. This dog is the walking, living, breathing example of that adage.
*Visit Roman at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! For more information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531!

*ROSLIN is an adorable Doberman Pinscher mix with this to say:
"Hi there! I'm Roslin! I'm a cute, 1-year-old puppy!! And guess what? I am a male! Yes you read that right – I’m a guy! I’m named after Roslin, a castle in England!
*While I’m waiting to find my forever family, I am running and playing with dogs at Camp Bow Wow Doggy Day Care, 231 Grand Island Blvd. in Tonawanda! That’s right, I get to stay with them ‘til I find my home! This is a PERFECT set-up for me because I’m a happy, high-energy pup and I love playing with other like-minded dogs! I have already made new doggie friends.
*You can go here to see me playing on Camp Bow Wow's Real Time Dog Cam http://www.campbowwow.com/us/ny/tonawanda/all-browsers.
*Don't have time to watch me on the cam? See my short video here!
*If you are interested in meeting me, please call 629-3537 to speak with someone from the SPCA's Behavior Department to set up a meeting. I can't wait to meet you!"
YELP FOR HELP on WKBW-TV
Thursdays * 5 - 7 am * Good Morning, WNY
OUR YELP FOR HELP PATIENT: CAPTAIN BARNABY! Cap't. Barnaby, 9 months old, is ALREADY UP FOR ADOPTION because he's healing so well! Go, Captain!
OUR PATIENT CAME TO US: With a left front leg that he couldn't even stand on. Poor guy had a huge abscess on his leg that precluded him from moving too much.
YELP FOR HELP DONORS ARE HELPING US TREAT CAPTAIN BARNABY IN THIS WAY: We needed to get in at that abscess and clean it out, then go to work making sure no infection set in. Sugar bandages were used, and Captain Barnaby was placed on meds and antibiotics. Then he had to be stitched just right....bringing the wound close enough to heal, but not too close as to seal in anything unwanted! Clearly, Captain Barnaby responded extremely well, because he was placed on the adoption floor at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter April 16! THANKS, YELP FOR HELP DONORS!!
