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!

Gunner Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Pax Needs A Forever Home

Meet Gunner, a 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 and seems to get stressed with other cats nearby. Therefore he needs to be the only cat in the home. We have never seen him with a dog so we are not sure how he would react to one. Due to his current agitation with other nearby cats where he's living, 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 Pax! He is approximately 2 years old, 55 pounds, and might be a shepherd/husky/lab mix, per the vet's best guess. Pax was a stray in SC in October. Since then, he has been neutered and treated for heartworm. He is almost done with his 4 weeks of crate rest and very excited to meet his forever family!

Pax has been a very good boy in the crate, but really appreciates his out-of-crate experiences. He likes car rides. He loves to be out in the fresh air and cannot wait to be able to romp and wag with his new people! He will thrive in an environment that can provide exercise and play time.

We are not sure about Pax's previous house experience (he was unsure of stairs when he arrived!). He needs some work on the leash, but a prong collar would help tremendously with that. Pax seems to be mostly potty trained, even using the bell to ask to go out. He responds well to positive correction and treats. He is a people pleaser. He learned "sit" and "come" very quickly. He is also an attention hound! Individual attention makes him so happy that he will lean his whole self on whoever is petting him.

Due to all the time in the crate, we cannot accurately describe his true personality. He is very chill in the crate, as if he knows that he needs to rest to feel better. He has a lot of energy when he comes out of the crate. We like to think that once he is allowed to exercise and have more mental stimulation that he will fit nicely into a family setting. We are suggesting that Pax be an only dog, but would be open to a meet and greet, or foster-to-adopt situation. We are not sure how he is with cats.

We think Pax is a sweet dog who deserves a loving, active home! Won't you open your heart to this big goofball?

Pax is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, flea-free and neutered. If interested please fill out an adoption application at www.bpcanimalrescue.com.
