Together again! Meet Dean:

and Jerry:

This adorable duo, Standard Poodles, should be adopted together, and together, they'll add laughter, comedy, and hijinx to your life with their clever capers and silly stunts! Just like the real Dean and Jerry!

Both boys are 4 1/2 years old, and are truly kindred spirits. Like most hound pairs, one, Dean, 25 lbs., is a little more outgoing, while Jerry, 20 lbs., hangs back, letting Dean be the star. Don't try to separate them, though - their little worlds come to an end if they're separated mere feet in our yard! These boys are in tandem at all times!

For more information on our dynamic duo, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531!

How often do we see what we guess is a Hound/Dalmatian mix? Practically never...which is completely fitting...because ZEBB is definitely one-of-a-kind!

This cutie came to us as a stray from Cheektowaga, and we know someone must be looking high and low for him - he's that fantastic.

Someone taught him how to sit nicely, give his paw, walk on a harness without pulling and how to be a good boy when it's being put on, and we're told by Cheektowaga Animal Control officers that he loves car rides! 

Zebb is only 1 year old, so he's practically a puppy. That means he has some puppy energy and should do great with someone active, who will take time to train him even more and teach him all kinds of new tricks! It'll be even better if he's the only dog in the home!

Tune in to Newsradio 930 WBEN Friday, August 19, 8:52'll hear more about this handsome man and all he'll add to your life! Call SPCA Adoptions with any questions: 716-629-3531!

Did you know PAWS IN THE PARK is already just a little more than one month away? Sponsored by Keller Technology Corporation, this is our 23rd year, and we're looking forward to the best year ever!!!

All the Paws in the Park info is here!


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? Look for the most current Yelp for Help segment on AM Buffalo's website page here!

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!


Fridays * Daybreak & 11 am news * WGRZ-TV Ch. 2



Olé, Pedro! You're such a good boy that you were picked as Kevin O'Neill's sidekick on 2 The Rescue Friday, August 5!

When we say this 10-year-old Chihuahua mix is valiente (spirited and spunky), we mean it! He has a spring to his every step that says, "Hello, world, here I am!" He's playful, a little firecracker...a touch shy at first, but once he trusts his people he loves to be carried, loves to walk, loves to run...the fact that he's "guapo" is the icing on the fried ice cream!

Meet Pedro at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! To learn more, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531!
