About Our Rescue Group...
Buffalo C.A.R.E.S. Animal Rescue
is an all breed, volunteer driven, 501(c)(3) non- profit organization dedicated primarily, but not limited to, the facilitation of placement of homeless animals the Buffalo, NY & surrounding area shelters/animal control facilities. We provide safe foster homes, needed veterinary care, balanced training, socialization and support to develop a well adjusted family companion. Through a screened adoption process, the companion animals will be placed in compatible, permanent homes. Serving our community and local pet owners as a resource, we provide information on the importance of population reduction through spay/neuter programs and microchipping pets.

The Adoption process:
*Submit your online adoption application
* If you already have pets in your home, they must be up to date on their vaccinations.
*Once the reference & vet checks are complete and approved, we will be in contact to schedule a home visit and/or meet & greet with the animal you are interested in. All members of the family including any current pets must be present.
*Based on your references, home visit and meet & greet, we will approve or deny your application to adopt or recommend a different animal who may be a better fit for your home.
*If approved, we will set up a date for you to adopt your new companion animal. If an animal is not yet spayed/neutered, we will set up your adoption for a time after they have been altered. We will not adopt out any animal until they have been spayed/neutered unless the animal is determined, by our veterinarian, unable to be spayed/neutered due to a medical condition or that it would be a danger to their well being.
