Adoption Fee Waived!


Double up this summer. Double up on love. On affection. On devotion. Double your pleasure with these two bonded sisters, Snuggles and Patches!

Our girls are both 10 years old, and they have to find a loving home together. At one point, the cats were separated for a short time, and they stopped eating, so they simply cannot be separated!

When these two girls are together, life just gets better. Not only for the cats, but for the people they trust. Snuggles loves...well...snuggling, and lives up to her name! Patches cuddles too, so you'd have a pair of cuddling bookends! They love their wand toys too, so they'll keep you laughing!

Snuggles and Patches' official video is going up on the SPCA's Facebook page at 7:30 am Wednesday, July 1, right before they make their "radio appearance!" Be sure to check it out!

Remember, Snuggles and Patches are 10, which means their adoption fees are waived!! Visit them at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter - it'll only take minutes for you to double up on the love in your life, and who doesn't want that??!!! Call SPCA Adoptions for details: 716-629-3531!

Independence Day fireworks and festivals are really no picnic for pets. Read about calming down cats and dogs with ThunderShirts and other ways to keep pets safe this holiday right here!

Our Newshound is a little girl this week (although last week's little boy, Yogi, below, is still available!)! Eleven pounds, four years old, this tan and white Jack Russell Terrier is a subtle charmer, all ready for her #AdoptionMiracle!

Now, when is the last time you heard the word "subtle" to describe a Jack Russell? Usually these terriers are anything BUT subtle! Saybell, however, came from a puppy mill located in a different state. Socialization wasn't high on the priority list. Saybell's loving and curious personality has overcome so much of her past...and just a little bit of gentle guidance will help her overcome the rest!

There is something about being indoors that seems very satisfying to Saybell. Our Behavior and Training Department have noticed that she's a bit intimidated when outside, yet when she feels the protection of the indoors, she's happy and wiggly and more content! This may not always be the case...Saybell is young...but from the looks of things right now, she'd be great with a patient someone happy to keep Saybell close to his or her side, indoors or outdoors, day and night!

Saybell is available at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! Make Saybell your #AdoptionMiracle this summer during the SPCA's Summer of Adoption Miracles! Call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531, for more information!

SUNDAY ADOPTION HOURS! Remember, the SPCA has special Sunday hours June 28! Our Tonawanda shelter will be open noon - 4 p.m.! Make a stop at the SPCA part of your Sunday routine!

PEANUT BUTTER ALERT! Do you feed your pets peanut butter as a treat? PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE about an ingredient now being used in some peanut butters that is deadly to dogs!!

SPCA Staff Pick! Adoption Fee: $67.50!


Two years old, 13 pounds, this boy is incredibly sports-minded!

Yogi the Chihuahua certainly knows what's what when it comes to tennis and soccer balls...perfect for his active personality! Yogi's perfect fit would be a home of grown-ups who want to take long walks with him, hikes, strolls (he does well with leash-walking)...any kind of one-on-one attention is the perfect recipe for a fun life with Yogi!

Crate-trained? Of course! As much as Yogi loves his work-outs, he also loves his down time. He sleeps in his crate all night long, in fact!

Yogi is a bit shy at first, but warms up quickly and his foster folks tell us he loves interacting with them and...and he's a boy who actually responds when he's called! What more could you want in a sweet, little companion?

Now, Yogi is a bit nervous when it comes to other dogs, so he wasn't doing well here at the SPCA. Instead, he is living in a New Leash On Life foster home...but he's anxious to meet someone new to be his permanent person! If you live in a home with room for just one dog and you want to meet Yogi, call the SPCA's Behavior and Training Department, 716-629-3537, and tell 'em you want all the Yogi details!

YOGI'S ADOPTION FEE IS HALF OFF! He's our SPCA Staff Pick this week! That means his fee is reduced to $67.50!

It's the SPCA's Summer of Adoption Miracles  (#AdoptionMiracles)...make Yogi YOUR miracle and you can work out together for years to come!

*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!



Fridays * 5:15 am & 11:15 am * WGRZ-TV Ch. 2

Aquarius - 2 The Rescue June 5, 2015 

Nine years old (translation: WAIVED ADOPTION FEE!), and yes, maybe he can use a little diet...but Goliath is a gentle giant when it comes to cuddling and snuggling and showing affection! Goliath has one goal in life: to be LOVED!

This boy isn't a cat who wants to be independent. Living for himself? Nah - what good is THAT life? Goliath lives only to make YOUR life better. More joyful. Filled with companionship and devotion.

For the person looking for more than a pet...looking for someone to really share life with...someone to hug and pet and us...don't let Goliath get away.

During our summer of  #AdoptionMiracles, we KNOW Goliath will be YOUR miracle this year. Visit him at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter. For more information, call SPCA Adoptions: 716-629-3531!
