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!

Damien Needs a Foster or Forever Home

Morgan Needs A Forever Home

Meet Damien, a sweet boy about 1 year old. He was very shy months ago but has come a long way in his foster home. Damien is good with other cats and children. Not sure how he would be with dogs. He is up to date on vaccinations, FIV/FeLV negative, dewormed and neutered. If interested please call or text 716-308-0101 or email bpckitties@hotmail.com. Morgan is an approximately 1yr 2mths brindle petite pitbull. She weighs approximately 40lbs. Morgan is a very sweet and affectionate dog with her humans. Morgan is fully housetrained and crate trained. Morgan uses a bell on the door to let you know she has to go outside, and she loves being in her crate with chew toys. Morgan enjoys the company of some dogs that tend to be more submissive. We have seen her with cats and she is good with them, just wants to play. Morgan knows commands with hand signals such as 'sit', 'down' 'paw'. She also knows 'place' and is working on staying in her 'place' until released. Morgan responds to 'leave it' or 'no' if doing something she shouldn't be. Morgan loves to play and run around. Morgan came from a very rough environment and is very fearful of men, 'scary' environments, and long handled items such as brooms and shovels. Morgan is protective of her humans and has responded from fear towards men. If they enter her space she has nipped before, so she needs a proper and slow introduction. There has been training completed that has worked on this behavior. She will be wary of new people coming into her home but as long as they are not men she just takes a little time to warm up to them. When men do come in the house she should be on leash but may warm up to them eventually if they are sitting and feed her treats. Morgan has a lot of that puppy energy still but when walked or given time to run around settles easily. Morgan uses a gentle leader on walks and does very well with this. She will not bolt from you if off leash unless there are other dogs, however due to her fear issues, she should still be on leash. Overall Morgan is a very sweet, loving, funny, and loyal little girl who needs more behavior training to help her overcome her fears. She is good with kids and even enjoys being around babies. Probably because she doesn't fear them. She 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.
