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

Patches 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. Patches is a female 6 year old pure breed Siberian Husky who weighs around 70-75 pounds. She is a local owner surrender because the owner could no longer keep her. This gorgeous girl has the most beautiful blue eyes! She is a sweet girl to people that she knows and trusts but she can also act aloof at times. It takes her a good amount of time to open up to new people (1-2 months) and is nervous or experiences some anxiety upon first meeting them. Otherwise she enjoys going for walks, but does need a harness or gentle leader so that she doesn't pull. We were told that Patches is good with other dogs but so far she has not gotten along with any that we have introduced her to. She likes her space and doesn't mind it if a dog is in the same area as her, but she doesn't want them to jump on her, play with her, and certainly does not react well if they act aggressively towards her. The previous owner said that she is good with cats also. We don't completely trust her with cats, especially ones that are not used to dogs so we would prefer her to be the only pet in the home. She is good with kids but younger ones are too much for her, so we prefer a home with kids over the age of 16. Patches does NOT like when people take the initiative to pet her. She wants to be able to come to you when she is ready. Therefore she needs a special owner who has a quiet home and someone will has the patience to devote to her. If you are looking for a dog who likes to cuddle, then Patches is not the one for you. She will however give her owner kisses and try to get on their lap once she is comfortable with you. She seems to react better to women then men. We have also noticed that she has some people food aggression issues. For instance, if she gets into some food or something she isn't supposed to and you want to take it away from her, she will growl. If she feels cornered and afraid we have seen her nip. It's a warning for that person to give her space. She is crate trained and potty trained. She finds comfort at times in her crate. Patches is up to date on her shots, dewormed, and spayed. If you are interested in meeting her, please call or text us at 716-208-7747.
