See that glint of mischief in Riley’s eye? She needs a home that will appreciate a wild woman with a BIG personality, lots of shenanigans and a few quirks. We promise she will entertain you, but would prefer to be your only source of entertainment (no little kids or other pets.) she’s about two years old and a beautiful blue-grey color. We know the perfect home is out there for Riley, and we know she’s very tired of being cooped up in a cage, so her personality may mellow once she gets into a home. You can meet her at at PetSmart on Elmwood Ave in North Buffalo.

Reasons why Pumpkin Spice the cat is better than a pumpkin spice latte:
1. No calories
2. Cat purrs are scientifically proven to be relaxing, caffeine is not
3. Rescuing animals is trendier than PSLs in Adopt a Shelter Pet Month
4. Pumpkin Spice the cat is colorful and gorgeous, Pumpkin Spice lattes are just boring brown

Norm! He’s looking for a bar stool at a place where everybody knows his name! (Are our followers old enough to remember “Cheers!”?)
Norm is 4, good natured, pleasantly plump, and very handsome. He is FIV+, but we can fill you in on how that’s not a very big deal. He’s waiting for you to take away all his worries at Pet Supplies Plus on Delaware Ave in North Buffalo.

Weekly Furtastic Feature post alert!! This week we would like to highlight a few of our wonderful adoptable animals who haven’t yet found their forever homes.

Dominic is a meatball, a goofball, and a ball of energy...for about 20 minutes then he is actually kind of lazy! He’s been with us quite a while, due to no fault of his own.

Wonder is a senior lady, sweet as pie, who shouldn’t spend another minute in a shelter. Don’t be afraid to consider adopting an older animal, they still have so much love to give ❤️

Norman is a bigger kitty, around 4 years old, and FIV+. His FIV status might deter some, but FIV cats are absolutely capable of living normal, long lives with their human and animal companions. He’s currently living off site at Pet Supplies Plus on Delaware Ave.

Flora is a lovely adult pup who came to us as a stray. She’s about 5 or 6, fairly laid back, but has some spunk in her still that will keep you laughing at her goofy antics.

The virtual Furtastic Adopt-A-Thon runs through the rest of October, please visit Furtastic.us for more info!

How’s your Fall decorating coming? Flora doesn’t have a home to decorate, so she’s decided to decorate herself by rolling in some fallen leaves!🍁 This middle aged girl has been waiting for a home for quite a while. If you’re interested in meeting her, please call the shelter to make an appointment.

October is black cat awareness month and these 3 would like to make you aware that they have been waiting a LONG times for homes. Each of these guys are friendly adult cats being overlooked for their color. Minoni has a beautiful medium length coat, Ross has stunning green eyes and Binx is a little chonk for those of you that like the rounder cats!
They can be adopted by calling the shelter to make an appointment to come meet them!

*Cue the Sarah McLaughlin song* When you donate to Friends of the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter you help save animals like Glennon, a tiny stray kitten that came to us with a broken femur. There was no guarantee she would make it through orthopedic surgery, or that it would be successful in such a tiny bone, but we had to try. Her dedicated foster family has helped her through her recovery and she is now almost 4 months old and ready to find her forever home. She would do best in a quiet, cat savvy home with older children as she’s a little shy, but playful, and has typical Tortie-tude.

It’s breakfast time and Joanie would like you to know she prefers bacon breakfast sandwiches to Timbits! 🥓 She likes long walks in the park, is a fan of canal side, likes little kids, but hates baths. If you think you’re a good match, and promise to take her to breakfast on occasion, please contact the shelter to meet Joanie!

*Adoption pending*
Greta is getting desperate. We heard last night that she tried to stow away in someone’s purse! She came in with a litter of kittens who have long since been adopted, and still she waits. She has moved to Daisy’s Doghouse on Hertel at Norwalk to wait for a forever home. We have discovered that she doesn’t much care for dogs, but is friendly to people and cats. Greta is about a year old, barely more than a kitten herself!

Nala is waiting for you at Pet Supplies Plus on Delaware Ave in North Buffalo. She’s 6-8 months old, just a teenager who promises not to stomp up the stairs, roll her eyes or demand more allowance. 😸😹

Maria has a sad story like so many of our strays. Our dog control officers chased her for weeks until they finally captured her heavily pregnant. No owner came looking for her. Her puppies were adopted the second they were ready, but nobody wants mom. She’s a sweet dog, 1.5-2 ish years old, 45ish pounds, and prefers a home without cats or other small animals. A generous, anonymous donor is sponsoring a portion of her adoption fee. You can make an appointment to meet her by calling the shelter.

Looking for my coffee drinkers and protein shakers!! Especially those who love the added flavor but not the calories or sugar!! You all will LOVE our Syrup Trio that will be available November 1st! It’s limited release/supplies and I’m guessing they’ll sell out quickly! - especially because they’ll make wonderful Christmas gifts! You get 3-12oz bottles of Salted Caramel, Mocha and Vanilla syrup. They are 0 sugar and 0 calories. $19.95 I’M TAKING PRE-ORDERS NOW- let me know if you would like one (or some) so I can order o for you on November 1st to help you SAVE on shipping costs ;)

How long does it take to hear back about an online adoption application?
I'm proud to partner with City of buffalo animal shelter this month to help them raise funds for Care and treatment of orphaned animals!. Are you interested in learning about how you can contribute to this cause? I am kicking off the fundraiser and ordering online with 50% of the sales going to the shelter. Please share, share, share!

Hello everyone! I’m bout to abort this adorable boy. Wondering how oof you might think he is, we are thinking 2-3? And what kind? He’s pure bread husky just can’t figure out which breed I’m thinking someone might know.
Hope you enjoy the food and supplies we just gave you to not let my daughter in to see the cats. Oh and making her cry too. Assholes.
Is there a fee for surrendering a cat?
Hey guys! Just Tonks (Lilo) dropping in to say “I’m out here, living my best life. I get unlimited snuggles and cuddles from my humans and sisters. They let me step all over them if it means getting comfy. I really cannot believe I went from wanting a home, to having the best home ever! I have a big yard to play in, I like to poop in the driveway, and I also get excited to meet new friends and other dogs. I have awesome neighbors who also bring their dog over to play in my backyard with me and my sister! You’ll never catch me running the streets ever again! Thank you for letting my mom and dad adopt me!”
Our schnauzer Summer is missing from the Valley area in Buffalo NY. She is chipped. Please call us 292-6476 if she is brought to shelter. Police said to reach out to you asap. We will call in the am. Thank you
