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 would like to Thank Jacob Z., 10 years old, who raised $117.71 for us by doing a flea market garage sale. Great job! You helped many animals with your kindness! Thank you so much!

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!

Gloria & Grace Need a Forever Home

Laddy Needs A Forever Home

Meet Gloria & Grace, 3 year old petite sisters. We pulled them from an Ohio kill shelter where they were suffering in pain from severe dental disease. They both had all but one tooth removed (same lower canine remains on each). Gloria (no white) and Grace (w/ white) have been together since birth and must stay together. They are two of the sweetest, most loving and funny cats! They seek out affection and are not "skiddish" cats. Gloria and Grace LOVE canned food but can also eat dry food. They're good with other cats, and would probably be okay with a dog that respected their boundaries. Both are 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. Laddy is a handsome 12 pound 2 year old male Chihuahua mix who came to us from an Ohio sanctuary because they had too many dogs. He is shy and timid but with some TLC he is starting to come around. Being that she came in a place that had 40 other chihuahuas he is great with other dogs. We actually require that she is adopted into a home that has at least one other dog. We also require that he lives in a home where there is a fenced in backyard. He gets along with cats and is in a foster home with them. We would love to have Laddy in a quiet household where there are older children or no kids although he also needs to be exposed to new situations. He will need someone who is patient and willing to work with him because he is very scared. He is becoming a little more comfortable at the foster home but it's baby steps to getting him where he needs to be. Although he is nervous around people, once he gets to know you better, he starts to relax. Laddy needs to have lots of cuddle time and one on one time. Will you be the one to give him the chance at a normal life so that he can slowly begin to forget about his traumatic past? An open crate where he can go in and out of would be good. He is working on becoming fully potty trained. He is up to date on his shots, dewormed, given a bordatella vaccination, and neutered. If you are interested in meeting him please call or text us at 716-208-7747.
