So there's no snow at all in the forecast for Thanksgiving. We thought we'd bring just a little snow into your life this holiday...and what better time to offer a petite Snowshoe who would be plenty thankful for a new home this Thanksgiving?!

Cornie is just 2 year old, just 7 1/2 pounds, and those blue eyes...well, they look right through you! Offset by that Siamese-looking face, this girl should be a cover girl.

Cornie's family is moving, so this lovely lady ended up with us, but we know we won't have her for long! She was spayed in our infirmary 11/23, which means she's ready for a new home for the holidays!

Meet Cornie at the SPCA's 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter! For information, call SPCA Adoptions, 716-629-3531! REMEMBER, OUR TONAWANDA SHELTER IS CLOSED FOR THANKSGIVING THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26 & 27!

There's a lot going on at the SPCA:

  -Check out the SPCA's Thanksgiving Pet Safety Tips!

VETS & PETS, free adoptions to current and retired members of the military, is extended to the end of the year!

  -See the SPCA'S Black Friday special at our Eastern Hills Mall adoption site, Name Your Own Price Adoptions!

Twelve years old, looking for a place to rest his head…and a lap or two to curl up on through the winter!

Handsome, “blue” Monkey is a little reserved around strangers – at first! But once he knows and trusts his human friends, there’s nothing that will stop him from cuddling and listening to everything you have to say – our volunteers tell us he’s a great listener, and who DOESN’T want a man who listens?!

Make handsome Monkey your companion and your confidant!

He’s at the SPCA’s 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter, and remember – ADOPTION FEE WAIVED!



Fridays * 8:52 am * Newsradio 930 WBEN


You know what these two 3-year-old Chihuahuas would be VERY thankful for this Thanksgiving? For a new find a warm, new home TOGETHER. Sadly, their Cheektowaga owner took ill, which is why these two sweeties are temporarily residing at the SPCA.

Molly & Gracie are two peas in a pod and are absolutely inseparable. They mirror each other in everything they do! They're both a little shy at first and prefer to ease into new situations slowly. Once they're comfortable in their new surroundings with their new people, however, look out because they'll want to cuddle and snuggle all day!

Double the love, double the joy, double the laughter when you bring home these twins, Gracie and Molly, waiting to meet you at the SPCA's Tonawanda shelter! Call SPCA Adoptions for details: 716-629-3531!

There's a lot going on at the SPCA:

  -VETS & PETS, free adoptions to current and retired members of the military, is extended to the end of the year!

*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
