Featured Dog:
Breed: Mix
Gender: Female
Approximate DOB: 3/2018 (1 year old)
Size: Medium
Color: Brindle
Needs: She’s a shy but friendly girl that loves to snuggle and be with people. Buu tends to be selective with other dogs. She may do ok living with one but tends not to care for meeting new dog friends. Her new owner needs to be committed to training her as she needs to work on basic commands and leash skills. A puppy class is recommended.

Featured Cat:

Breed: Domestic short-haired
Gender: Female
Approximate Age: 3 years
Size: Medium
Color: Gray & White
Needs: Puffin is a short-haired gray and white cat that was trapped as a young cat in November 2017. She was part of a group of cats living around houses that were demolished on Main Street in Dunkirk, and had not had much human contact. Those cats were understandably afraid and Puffin used to hide all the time. But she has made great progress and now loves to be petted. She is quiet and watchful and will need a gentle, loving home.

Why Spay or Neuter?


Dogs and cats reproduce much faster than anyone can find homes for them, so the number of unwanted animals is out of control. As a result, millions of cats and dogs are euthanized every year.  Spaying and Neutering Saves Lives!

Other reasons to spay or neuter your pet:

Your pet will be healthier and live longer

Prevents uterine infections and reproductive cancers in females

Prevents testicular cancer and prostate problems in males

Reduces spraying behavior in cats

Your pet will still feel like a male or female

Does not change your pet’s personality

Does not change the natural instinct of protecting home & family

Your female pet won’t go into heat. No more bleeding, crying, pacing, and attracting unwanted males

Your male pet won’t want to roam

Keeps males from wanting to fight with other dogs

Helps the community Most dog bites to people are caused by animals that have not been fixed

Your purebred dog will still be a purebred.

Even if you plan to find homes for your pet’s babies, that means other babies will die without homes.And what about the babies of the pets you give away or sell?
