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!

Freddy & Joey Need A Foster or Forever Home

Foxy Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Freddy & Joey, handsome 1 year old brothers! They were surrendered from a home with too many animals. Freddy & Joey are shy at first but playful and will relax and trust quickly. They love belly rubs and sleeping in bed with their foster parents! They came from a home with dogs but we aren't sure what they think of them. Freddy & Joey are up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, microchipped and neutered. Meet Foxy, a male Chihuahua mix who's about 12 years young. He is a very sweet, loving boy. He came from Ohio and just wants a quiet forever home to retire in. Foxy is a lazy boy that wants to cuddle most of the time. He's very smart and listens well. Foxy is great with other dogs as long as they don't try to play with him. We think cats would be fine. We suggest no young kids due to his age. Foxy has only a few teeth so his tongue is out often :) Foxy has developed a chronic cough (non-contagious) and is on medication for that which runs about $40 per month. He is mostly potty trained, but in winter he really doesn't want to go out. He has spinal stenosis pinching a nerve which sometimes causes his back legs to wobble and him to urinate without knowing it. Because of this he should have a belly band or diaper on, or you can have him use pee please ads. He is up to date on vaccines, dewormed, tested negative for heart worms, had dental work done last year, and is neutered. If interested, please call or text 716-308-0101 or email bpckitties@hotmail.com. To speed up the process fill out an adoption application.
