BERNARD

One look at Bernard and you'll realize he's the boy you'll want by your side this Valentine's Day, and every day after that.

Bernard, a 1 1/2-year-old Chow Chow mix, will captivate you with his cuteness, and isn't that what everyone is looking for during this season of love? Young, friendly, happy-go-lucky...this boy loves to play, sits and waits on cue, and with a little motivation, preferably in the form of soft treats, he'll learn plenty of other tricks!

Work a lot? Bernard s pretty content on his own with some favorite toys and busy bones - he keeps himself happily entertained.

Look for love in all the RIGHT places this year....at the SPCA! Visit Bernard at our Tonawanda shelter! For more information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531!

Want to help beautiful animals like last week's Star of the Week, Emma? Give to our Yelp for Help Fund....and if you give RIGHT NOW (or before February 12!), your donation will be DOUBLED, thanks to Vera Arrison and the Petco Foundation! Details on this special Yelp for Help Challenge are here!

MORTY

MORTY knows what it takes to be the love of your life! He'll listen to you talk about your feelings. He'll cuddle up with you during every rom-com. Best of all, he loves doing exactly what you tell him to do! Seriously, girls....finally, the perfect valentine!

MORTY, a 7-year-old Bulldog mix, is ready and waiting to fill your heart with 47 pounds of pure devotion!

Now, Morty is, shall we say, discerning. He simply has no patience for any kind of animal smaller than he is. Cat, rabbit, ferret, even another dog smaller than he is - he can't be bothered. He thinks they're pests of the worst kind, and will make sure they know that! Put this boy in a "pest-free" environment, however, and watch how this hunka' love will become the best valentine you've ever had.

Morty was a stray, so he's a bit on the thin side. Shouldn't be a problem to put a responsible amount of weight on this guy, though...he knows some tricks and eats with gentlemanly manners. A little bit of pampering will go a long way with Morty!

Meet our classy canine at the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! For more information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531!

In 2015, 465 animal patients received hope and healing thanks to theSPCA's YELP FOR HELP FUND! You can be part of that hope and healing! if you want to donate towards helping Morty's SPCA friends who need life-saving, emergency treatments and surgeries, then THIS is the time to donate! Right now, your donations to the Yelp for Help Fund will be DOUBLED by Vera Arrison and the Petco Foundation! Information can be found here! But hurry! Donations will be doubled only through February 12!

From Feb. 5:


DUTCHESS

So this weekend's the Superbowl. Big game. #Superbowl50. We said, "We need a Newshound to reflect the true spirit of the game. The true spirit of sports. A dog who's all dog...a dog who's all rough-and-tumble-play." So let us introduce you to DUTCHESS.

Now, looking at this photo, Dutchess appears to be the OPPOSITE of what we just described. This 3-year-old princess Pit Bull Terrier mix seems all pomp and circumstance, not get down-and-dirty in the mud...or in this case, on the turf. She looks as though she'd rather be residing in the plushest room of her palace , not curled up on a cozy couch in front of the TV, during Sunday's game.

We thought that too. Until we saw Dutchess' video. One look at that video proved to us that, while she knows she has a face made for lush boas and twinkling tiaras, she could get that football past the largest linebacker. She'll intercept the quickest quarterback, and maybe sack for good measure. This girl is all play, all fun, ready to engage in winter activities with you, ready to enjoy the long, summer days that are ahead running around at the park or beside you on a leash as you exercise!


Meet elegant Dutchess at her current palace, the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! For more information, call Krissi at Adoptions: 716-629-3531! She'll be THRILLED to tell you how you can begin a life with this princess!

In 2015, 465 animal patients received hope and healing thanks to theSPCA's YELP FOR HELP FUND! You can be part of that hope and healing! if you want to donate towards helping Dutchess' SPCA friends who need life-saving, emergency treatments and surgeries, then THIS is the time to donate! Right now, your donations to the Yelp for Help Fund will be DOUBLED by Vera Arrison and the Petco Foundation! Information can be found here! But hurry! Donations will be doubled only through February 12!

 

YELP FOR HELP with
Mike Randall on WKBW-TV

Thursdays * 10 am * AM Buffalo



*Each Thursday during AM Buffalo (Ch. 7, 10:00 am), Mike Randall features an SPCA animal NOT up for adoption....yet. At the time of filming, the animal featured by Mike is a YELP FOR HELP patient, receiving some kind of costly veterinary care at the SPCA prior to adoption. Missed a week? Check out past segments here:

2016:

 - ZUMIE is zooming his way into your life!
- CHIMNEY wants her heart swept away!

See previous years' segments here!


*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!

ADOPTION FEE WAIVED!

BJ

I'm BJ, an 11-year-old Yorkie who is a handsome devil, if I do say so myself!  

Now because I'm 11, my ADOPTION FEE IS WAIVED. Know what that means? It means you just cannot put a price on all I have to offer. All my love and affection? Invaluable. The fact that I want to stay by your side as we walk? Invaluable. The companionship I want to offer you for years to come? Invaluable!

Yes, if you noticed me on TV with Kevin O'Neill, you may realize I'm just a touch overweight. 28 pounds, that's me. I'm happy the way I am, but I know I could stand to lose a few. So if you're a little late getting started on that New Year's resolution to drop a few, then I'm the boy you want to bring home. Let's do it together! I'll walk and walk and walk with you, and will cuddle with you too during the down times!

Want to meet me? Come to the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! Want to know more about me first? You'll want to call my friend Krissi at the SPCA: 716-629-3531!

Please don't wait....I'm on TV Friday, February 5,  Daybreak and the 11 am news with Kevin O'Neill during Ch. 2 WGRZ-TV's "2 The Rescue" segment...and I know you'll find everything about me invaluable!

Now, it's pretty definite that I'll be home by February 8 and will miss this amazing event...but some of the Buffalo Sabres are going to be at the SPCA during this first-ever PUCKer UP pre-Valentine's Day event! Learn all about it and see "bachelor" videos here!
