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!

Gunner Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Rocco Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Gunner, a very outgoing, playful & affectionate 5 year old male. He is a local surrender because they think the new baby is allergic. Gunner is very confused and sad being away from his family of 5 years. He was the only cat his entire life but seems to like other cats. We have never seen Gunner with a dog so we are not sure how he would react to one. He can get overstimulated with a lot of commotion, therefore we recommend that any kids in the home be over 12 years old. Gunner is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, and neutered. If interested please fill out an adoption application at www.bpcanimalrescue.com. Meet Rocco! This super adorable brindle lab/pit boy is about 3 years old. He's about 50 pounds but looks smaller in person. Rocco came from a shelter in SC to find his forever family, after being chained up outside for 3 years. Despite this Rocco is so friendly and well-rounded! He is great with other dogs but not with cats. Rocco is just a sweet happy fun-loving lap dog!! He was positive for HW when he came to the SC shelter but has already been treated:) Rocco is up to date on vaccines, flea treated, dewormed and neutered.
