Twenty-five senior dogs at the SPCA Serving Erie County’s 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda shelter will go to their new homes with waived adoption fees, courtesy of Saperston Real Estate Corporation! A donation made earlier this month will cover each dog’s $50 adoption fee.
The dogs (including Dakota, pictured here and available for adoption at the SPCA at the time of this writing) will be selected by the Adoptions staff at the SPCA based on criteria that includes age and length of stay. Notice of the waived adoption fee will be featured on each animal’s YourSPCA.org profile and kennel.
“This donation confirms our belief that we serve the best community in the nation,” says SPCA president and CEO Gary Willoughby. “This well-respected company has taken an interest in our animals and has supported them through financial and in-kind donations for decades; this donation from the Saperston Corporation made specifically to help rehome senior dogs and find them new, loving families is just one of many kind, compassionate gestures made by a company that does so much to support our community.”
“We have been involved with the SPCA for as long as I can remember, contributing in any way we can and watching the organization grow into what it is today,” says Will Saperston. “This donation is for the citizens of Erie County who support the SPCA in the hopes that they will adopt an animal in need and make their family a little bit bigger.”
Every dog adopted from the SPCA Serving Erie County is spayed or neutered, and receives age-appropriate vaccinations, deworming, seasonal flea control, microchip identification, free first physical exam courtesy of the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society, 30 days free veterinary insurance, and three weeks of unlimited email access to the SPCA’s Behavior and Training Department for advice.
Descriptions of the dogs available at the SPCA, most accompanied by photos, are available here. Dogs can be adopted at the SPCA’s 205 Ensminger Rd., Tonawanda location, where the humane society will be located approximately one more month before beginning its move to its new home at 300 Harlem Road in West Seneca.
