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 Saturday 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.

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!

Mo Needs A Forever Home

Chico Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Mo, a beautiful, playful and sweet 3 year old female! She was given to a friend to "watch" and that friend never came back for her! Mo is very affectionate and quite playful. She is good with kids, has lived with a small dog and does well with laid back cats. Mo is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, microchipped and spayed. Meet Chico! He's an absolutely precious guy about 3 years old. He LOVES other dogs and MUST go to a home with at least 1 other confident dog. Chico is VERY shy/scared with humans. He's better when other dogs are around, but needs a home that will work with him, teach him how to trust by giving him time and unconditional love. He does well around kids...but wouldn't recommend living with high energy "pushy" young children for fear Chico would hide from them. Chico is a dog that CANNOT bounce around from home to home! He is also a "flight risk" so he MUST have a secure fully fenced back yard! Chico doesn't have a mean bone in his body...he's just very insecure and needs help with that. Chico is up to date on vaccines, dewormed, heart worm negative and neutered.
