Those seriously interested in adopting should visit participating rescues and shelters to complete application in advance of event
A One Buffalo Pet Adoption event is coming to KeyBank Center on Saturday, June 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Many of Western New York’s animal shelters and rescue groups will gather under one roof to spotlight homeless pets that are currently available for adoption, and give members of the community an opportunity to meet a wide variety of pets in one location.
“We are excited to work on an event that is in keeping with the true spirit of One Buffalo and brings together our local animal shelters, rescues and WNY’s pet loving community for one simple mission, to help find forever homes for as many pets as possible,” said Tina Chaudhry, event organizer and co-creator of WNY’s Furtastic Adopt-A-Thon. “We are very grateful for the support of the Bills and Sabres in helping us accomplish our goal of saving the lives of animals.”
This adoption event will help to solve the problem of thousands of animals being killed every day as a result of overcrowded shelters. Each adoption will actually save two lives, the adopted pet and the one that takes its place at the shelter.
Participating animal shelters and rescue groups include:
- Buddy’s Second Chance
- City of Buffalo Animal Shelter
- Open Arms Rescue of WNY
- Pixie Mama’s
- WNY’s Furtastic Adopt-A-Thon
- Pets Alive WNY
- Ten Lives
- Joyful Rescue
- Awesome Paws
- Diamonds in the Ruff
- Silver Linings For Pit Bulls
- Buffalo C.A.R.E.S. Animal Rescue
- Buffalo Underdog Rescue
- Better Days Are Coming Dog Rescue
- HEART Animal Rescue & Adoption Team
- Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue
This list will be updated as more participating shelters and rescue groups are added.
Prospective adopters are encouraged to complete adoption applications in advance of June 16 and must bring a photo ID to the adoption event, along with a landlord’s permission letter if they live in a rented home, and be prepared to cover the adoption fee at the event.
Complimentary parking will be available in the KeyBank Center ramp. Any rescue organizations or pet retail vendors interested in participating in the One Buffalo Pet Adoption event can contact Tina Chaudhry at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
