Piper Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Moxie Needs A Foster or Forever Home

Meet Piper, a very outgoing, playful & SUPER affectionate 1 year old female. Piper is part of a cruelty investigation through the Niagara County. Her negligent owners watched her get hit by a car and did nothing. After she finally pulled herself to their steps they let her inside. She didn't move for days, but once she did they tossed her back outside. This poor girl had 2 broken legs, was flea infested and starving. Due to weeks going by before we got her, Pipers front leg could not be saved and needed to be amputated. Her back leg on the same side has a broken bone, however the vets say it's already healing and since she uses it without pain that she didn't need surgery on that leg. Piper has recovered beautifully from her surgery and is a healthy and happy, gorgeous little girl! She is active and loves to be up high, even with 3 legs. She is good with other cats with proper introduction as long as they are friendly. Piper isn't fond of dogs, but we think she could adjust to living with one as long as it's a lower energy, cat-friendly dog. Piper is up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative, and spayed. If interested please fill out an adoption application at www.bpcanimalrescue.com.

*Please note: Piper is still involved in the cruelty investigation. We have been given the "okay" to find her a home. However it will be a "foster to adopt" situation until the investigation is over and her adoption can be finalized.
Meet Moxie! This cute little sharpei/hound/shepherd mix girl is about 7 months old. She came from a shelter in SC to find her forever family. Moxie is a goofy puppy, playful and cuddly. Moxie MUST go to a home with another dog. She is very insecure by herself but with other dogs she thrives! She is doing great with her potty training but she's bound to have an accident in a new home since she's still a pup. She is great with other dogs, cats and with older kids. Moxie MUST go to a home with a minimum 6-8 foot vinyl fence, get trained on an invisible fence or be leashed at all times. She can easily, without efforts clear a 5 food chain link fence if she wants to...she's smart and determined. Moxie is up to date on vaccines, dewormed and spayed. If interested in adopting please fill out an adoption application at www.bpcanimalrescue.com.
