Current mall adoption site hours are  Monday through Friday, 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 7:00 pm; and Sunday, 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm.  Holiday hours vary.

How are your cats housed? Are they in cages?

Cats are housed in two ways at this site: in spacious cat condos with multi-level cat perches and a 360  open-air design, and in our Catvana room, a free-roaming playroom with state-of-the-art climb trees (built with a cat's fancy and comfort in mind!). These trees were purchased in 2014 through a generous grant provided by the East Hill Foundation!  

A get-acquainted area is also available to anyone interested in spending time with a pet prior to adoption!

Can I bring my children to play with the cats?

We would be thrilled to show you a cat you are seriously interested in adopting. Cats are only removed from cages for new adopters, however...this prevents the cats from being overly-handled and from becoming stressed, which could also lead to illness.

What kind of animals do you have up for adoption at the mall?

Cats are primarily available at this location! We also offer a variety of other small animals, which may include rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, birds, hamsters, even turtles! See animals available at this and other offsite locations here!

I'm from Canada. Can I adopt and bring a pet over the border?

Absolutely! We will provide you with the necessary paperwork to travel across the border with your newly-adopted kitty or other pet.

Can I surrender an animal to the SPCA mall location? Can I donate items to the location?

No, we cannot accept animals at our mall location. If you need to surrender an animal, please visit our Tonawanda shelter. We can accept the donation of small items on our WISH LIST. Please refrain from donating labels, wrappers, cans, compost, or recyclable beverage or other containers; the SPCA Serving Erie County does not participate in these refund programs.
