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.

We are unable to take in any small animals (bunnies, ferrets, guinea pigs, etc), due to lack of resources. Please contact Life Long Tails if surrender services are needed.

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!

Damien Needs a Foster or Forever Home

Thor Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Damien, a sweet boy about 1 year old. He was very shy months ago but has come a long way in his foster home. Damien is good with other cats and children. Not sure how he would be with dogs. He is up to date on vaccinations, FIV/FeLV negative, dewormed and neutered. If interested please call or text 716-308-0101 or email bpckitties@hotmail.com. Thor is an adorable 4 year old Coonhound mix who is a local owner surrender. He gets along wonderfully with other dogs and likes to play but we are not sure how he is with cats. He is a friendly dog but can also become nervous in a busy household setting. We would prefer a quieter home for him. He's playful and enjoys going for walks. No kids, because his herding instincts kick in when the kids cause commotion. Thor is both potty trained and crate trained. He is up to date on his shots, dewormed, given a bordatella vaccination, and neutered. If you are interested please call or text us at 716-208-7747.
