Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
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.
Come Meet Our Pets...
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.
