Welcome to Buffalo Paws & Claws Animal Shelter, Inc!

Melodie Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Foxy Needs A Forever Home

Meet Melodie, a sweet 3 year old female with a bobtail. She was pulled from an Ohio shelter where he was brought in by their dog warden. He said an apartment building called saying "this cat keeps getting in can you just come and get it?" She was so friendly and already spayed...that was clearly her home and her owner tossed her out. Melodie is a lovely girl who enjoys being pet. She should be okay another cat given a proper introduction. We haven't seen her with dogs, but she may be okay with a nice calm dog that gives her space. Melodie is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, and spayed. If interested please fill out an adoption application at www.bpcanimalrescue.com. Meet Foxy, a male Chihuahua mix who's about 12 years young. He is a very sweet, loving boy. He came from Ohio and just wants a quiet forever home to retire in. Foxy is a lazy boy that wants to cuddle most of the time. He's very smart and listens well. Foxy is ok with other dogs in passing but really doesn't have the energy to tolerate them in his home. We think cats would be fine. We suggest no kids due to his age Foxy has only a few teeth so his tongue is out often :) He is mostly potty trained, but in winter he really doesn't want to go out. He should have a belly band or diaper on during this time, or you can train him to use pee pads. He is up to date on his shots, dewormed, tested negative for heart worms, had dental work done last year, and is neutered.
