Welcome to Buffalo Paws & Claws Animal Shelter, Inc!

BPC is a NON-PROFIT NO KILL animal rescue and shelter who's mission is to provide a comfortable home for all domesticated pets. We take in unwanted or surrendered pets, neglected and/or abused.

We are available for adoptions & surrenders Monday through Sunday by appointment only. We are a foster based rescue, therefore we have to coordinate with our foster families prior to receiving any visits. You must also fill out our online adoption application and be approved prior to viewing any of our animals.

We are unable to take in any small animals (bunnies, ferrets, guinea pigs, etc), due to lack of resources. Please contact Life Long Tails if surrender services are needed.

Operation save the Ohio dogs part I & II. Once you view this video there's no denying that these dogs needed our help! Please turn up the volume and for easier viewing feel free to pause at any time. We love every single one of you chi babies!

Fluff & Dahlia Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Bono Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Fluff (the tabby), a sweet boy about 8.5 years old. His owner passed away in December 2012 and left behind him and 9 other cats (yes, he has been with us for almost 3 years!). Fluff is very shy at first but once he opens up he is very sweet. He MUST go to a home with Dahlia, his friend he has bonded with very closely. Dahlia is a 4 year old beautiful young girl. We pulled her from a kill shelter in Ohio where she was for almost 2 years. Dahlia is very sweet but quite shy. Please be aware it may take them months before they will begin to trust, but when they do it will be well worth the wait! Fluff had dental work done in January 2013 & in 2014 and we had to have most of his teeth pulled...he has 3 left! Both are wonderful with other cats. Best home would be on the small side and have no dogs, but a small or older/quiet dog may be okay. They is up to date on vaccinations, FIV/FeLV negative, dewormed and altered. If interested please call or text 716-308-0101 or email bpckitties@hotmail.com. Bono is a male 11 month old energetic Bull terrier mix pup who came to us from out of state. He is very friendly and loves to play with other dogs. He weighs close to 40 pounds but he's a little overweight. Bono is playful so he would do best with a dog 30 pounds and larger. We haven't seen him around cats but we are willing to do a meet & greet. He loves to play with toys and chase after the ball! An active family would be great for this boy (walking, running, hiking). We would like him to be w/ kids 10 and older. He's such a happy boy!! Did we mention that he's affectionate and loving too? Bono is both crate trained and potty trained. He still has lots to learn but aims to please. He is up to date on his shots, dewormed, flea treated, and neutered. If you are interested in meeting him please call or text us at 716-308-0101. Our email address is bpckitties@hotmail.com.
