Brief Pandemic update from Buffalo CARES (July 3rd, 2020)

Due to the pandemic we have been seeing animals getting adopted quicker than usual and we don’t have as many animals listed as we normally do. If you do not see the adoption application available it is because there aren't any pets available for adoption.

We appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm for adopting and your understanding as we get back up and running like normal. Please continue to check our website for adoptables and our coming soon page!

Please note, if you complete a foster application, with the hopes of actually adopting a dog not available on our website, unfortunately, the application will be deleted and not processed.

Please meet the handsome Geronimo!  Geronimo is a 6-year-old Husky who loves his humans and dog friends.  Geronimo is as handsome as they come with the most beautiful markings.  He will follow you anywhere and loves being close to his people, so he can get pet!  He is being fostered with two other dogs and he enjoys their company and playtime.  Geronimo more about Geronimo
Hi, my name is Rose and I'm a 10 year old Chihuahua. I am crate trained and mostly house broken - my foster mom says I'm doing really well! I also know my basic commands. I love to sit and snuggle on the couch. My favorite thing is to be with my people and I really like kids. I'm a laid back kinda girl but I can get a little spunky! Overall, I love to be loved and more about Rose
Hi there! My name is Athena and I came to Buffalo Cares to find my forever home! So far I am excelling at my crate training and my leash training. I LOVE my walks and doing zoomies in the yard. I am eager to learn new things and continue to go to training class. While I enjoy my physical activity I am pretty low energy especially in the house because I love to lay and cuddle on the couch. I more about Athena
