Nettie has had a rough summer. She was turned in with her litter of newborn kittens and was rightfully stressed. She then raised them in a foster home. She’s now moved to PetSmart on Elmwood where she has watched countless cats and kittens get adopted while she waits. She is not an outgoing, in your face cat, she is reserved. She likes calm, quiet and tons of treats. If you want to rescue an animal that really needs it, go meet Nettie with an open mind. ❤️🐾

Happy back to school 🏫🍎👩🏽‍🏫📚✏️ from a few of our shelter dogs that have been in "school" learning new things since they arrived at the shelter.

Each of these dogs are sponsored with funds for their adopters to use towards training with a professional of their choice.
We believe training is fun and forms a special bond between you and your dog and know each of these students will thrive in a home!

Thank you Canine Caliber Dog Training for doing a leash skills refresher for our volunteers today!
🐶🐾🐕

Our dogs come to us with all different levels of manners and our volunteers work hard to help them be the best dog they can be.
We are an all volunteer based group, we have no professional trainers or behavior department, so a chance for a class like this is a great treat! ❤️

Cassie is one of our awesome dogs that we feel has just been overlooked this summer. 🐕🌞🧡
She's smart, super friendly with people, a great medium size (about 50 pounds), has a beautiful look that turns heads on the street and walks great on a simple leash.
She is sponsored with a reduced adoption fee and funds towards some training classes by the Buffalo Barkery and we know she'll be a great companion for life.

Meet her and our other adoptables this Saturday 10:00-2:00 no appointment needed.

Thank you Danahy Real Estate LLC for sponsoring Jenny with a reduced adoption fee!
This girl was found abandoned with two other dogs (both also up for adoption) and is patiently waiting for her home. She's about 3 years old and is a calm and cuddly companion. Her markings aren’t special and she won't knock you out with her looks but we hope you'll take a minute to get to know her to see what a truly beautiful personality she has.

If you’re looking for a young playful dog come meet Henry 💙 or Coral 💖!

These two big puppies are rough and tumble players that really enjoy getting their energy out together but also do calm down and happily share the yard doing their own thing.

Meet them at our adoption event Saturday from 10:00-2:00, no appointment needed.
We have several young playful dogs available in addition to these two also.

Ruby ♥️💎🐾 is one of our longer term girls due to no fault of her own.
She’s a tiny little thing with a gentle personality that likes the quiet life.

She walks great on leash, shows signs of being housetrained, knows basic commands, rides great in the car, is snuggly with her friends and is ready to get out of the shelter for good!

Her ideal home would be with adults that are happy to give her a soft place to lay and a full life.
She is bossy when put in a playgroup and doesn’t really enjoy playing with other dogs so we think she’d be happiest as the only dog though she definitely isn’t looking for trouble.

Thank you to the Buffalo Barkery for sponsoring our girl with a reduced adoption fee and funds to take some fun training classes with her new family!

Two years ago today, this naked little nugget came into our lives! Happy Gotcha Day, Dulcinea Fae aka Anya! ❤
Hi Friends of City Animals. Lori here, using husband FB. New to FB, but am a long time supporter and donor. When will the City give the shelter a makeover? There is a renaissance all around you, but no progress with your building and facilities. I've called and written to politicians, city officials. What a great deal for the animals and Bflo. citizens to have a beautiful, thriving, expansive shelter to call home while waiting to be adopted! Let's make the animals the City's next priority! (Lori D.) 💝🍀😻Good idea?
Hi I would love to adopt a kitten or young cat
Hi!! So my boyfriend and I are in need of extra $ due to covid-19 unemployment and we came up with a brilliant idea I'd love help sharing! Recently, we had a loss in the family and had to travel for a few days. We could not take our fur babies due to circumstances and it was really difficult trying to find someone who could watch them. I am not sure how it is near anyone else's location, but it's extremely expensive in NY. Our landlord actually ended up watching them but by the time we came home the place was a disaster and there was no food out. Anyway, I am sure we are not the only ones who have had to struggle finding someone to take care of our babies so we decided to create a small business - (hopefully if it works out) - where we can help take care of any animals needs while their owner is away or if they even just need an extra hand. It is only $20/ hour (to cover time and gas) and we are the absolute cheapest in the area. We offer pet sitting, dog walking, cleaning litter boxes/ cages, feeding, etc. and it would just be really appreciated if anyone could help spread the word! We are not charging to take advantage of people as our prices are extremely, extremely low and also flexible. This will also help us support our fur babies too in this hard time. Thank you so much in advance :) https://www.facebook.com/BG.PSServices
❤️ Thank you Buffalo Animal Shelter for giving our family the gift of Brenna (aka Starla). We were blessed to bring our beautiful girl home on January 21st. She has added nothing but joy to our life! ❤️
I would like to give the city of buffalo animal shelter a huge THANK YOU!!!!! Skye loves her new home and could not be happier. If your looking into adopting and animal absolutely look into them you can’t go wrong. I tried the SPCA first and never even gave me the decency of a phone call back.
