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.

At this time we are only accepting dogs for surrender. We currently do not have the space available to accept any cats. We apologize for any inconvenience.

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!

Ginger Needs a Forever Home

Patches Needs A Forever Home

Meet Ginger, an approximately 10 year old beautiful petite girl. She was found on the street in West Seneca, starving. She is very sweet and affectionate, but not really into playing. Ginger was found to have a thyroid issue and is on medication that she will need for the rest of her life. On the medication she is doing well and it only costs about $13 a month. Ginger would do best as the only cat in the house, but may be okay with one other cat that ignored her. Ginger is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, and spayed. If interested please call or text 716-308-0101 or email bpckitties@hotmail.com. Patches is a female 6 year old pure breed Siberian Husky who weighs around 70-75 pounds. She is a local owner surrender because the owner could no longer keep her. This gorgeous girl has the most beautiful blue eyes! She is a sweet girl who can act aloof at times. It takes her a small amount of time to open up to new people and can be a little nervous upon first meeting them. Otherwise she enjoys going for walks, but does need a harness or gentle leader so that she doesn't pull. From what we were told, Patches is good with other dogs both larger and small but due to her size we would prefer a medium dog or larger. The previous owner said that she is good with cats also. She is good with kids but younger ones are too much for her, so we prefer a home with kids over the age of 10. Patches doesn't seem to like the crate, even though we were told she is crate trained. She prefers to have free roam of the house. She is also potty trained. Patches is up to date on her shots, dewormed, and spayed. If you are interested in meeting her, please call or text us at 716-208-7747.
