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!

Girlfriend Needs A Forever Home

Twitch Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Girlfriend, a beautiful, outgoing, playful and affectionate 1 year old female! She was a stray surrender when she was pregnant and gave birth to her babies in a foster home. Girlfriend is incredibly affectionate and quite playful. She is WONDERFUL with kids! She would prefer to be the only pet, however with a laid back male she may do well. She is terrified of dogs however. Girlfriend is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, microchipped and spayed. Meet Twitch! This adorable lab mix boy is 7 years old. He was surrendered to a kill shelter in SC because his family was moving :( Twitch is good with kids over 10 years old (doesn't like hyper kids). He is NOT good with small dogs/animals and should not be allowed to interact with them. He is good with dogs his size but only in passing. He is a quiet, medium-low energy goofy boy just looking for his forever home with losts of love! Twitch knows several commands and is very well behaved! He has had an occasional mild seizure but the vet has not found it necessary for him to be placed on any medications. He's still fully aware during his rare episodes. Twitch is up to date on vaccines, dewormed, microchipped, heart worm negative and neutered.
