Pets Alive WNY (formerly Buffalo Humane) is an all-volunteer nonprofit no-kill animal rescue organization. In addition to adoptions, we also do some sanctuary work as well as behavioral consultations for persons in the community.
Dogs are in foster homes and may be seen by appointment. Contact us by email at adoptions@PetsAliveWNY.org or call us at (716) 247-5090 and leave a message. Cats can be seen at our building on Sat, 11am-3pm or evenings by appointment: Pets Alive WNY, 7007 Campbell Blvd, Pendleton, NY
Our Adoption Process:
Potential adopters must complete an adoption application and in some cases we may require a home visit (mostly dogs). For current adoption fee info and promotions, we recommend going to our website at http://www.BuffaloHumane.org. As of 2013, dog adoption fees range from $175 for dogs to $250 for puppies, and some dogs may have reduced or waived adoption fees. Cat adoption fees range from $25 for older adult cats to $155 for young kittens, with some cats' adoption fees waived.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
