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

Sam 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. Sam is a handsome 40 pound 3 year old Lab mix who came to us from a SC kill shelter, brought in by law enforcement. He is a really nice and friendly boy who has been happily hanging out with office staff. While there, he has been non reactive to the barking of some little dogs. Sam has been very quiet so far in his kennel and is both crate trained as well as potty trained. Sam likes other dogs and kids. He is cat friendly as well. He is up to date on his shots, dewormed, was previously treated for heart worms therefore he needs to stay on a monthly preventative, and is neutered. If you are interested in meeting him, please call or text us at 716-208-7747.
