Buffalo Sabres goaltender Linus Ullmark has teamed up with the SPCA Serving Erie County to give more dogs a “home advantage!”

ULLMARK’S BARKS, designed to help more SPCA dogs find homes, will kick off Thursday, December 13. Through the end of the Buffalo Sabres hockey season, Ullmark and the Buffalo Sabres will share information on some of the temporary canine residents at the SPCA in the hopes of encouraging community members to draft the dogs and bring them into their homes.

“I’m excited to be helping the SPCA in this way,” Ullmark said last week when he visited the SPCA’s new West Seneca shelter for the first time. “I love dogs, and I’m looking forward to helping the dogs at the shelter. Together, we hope to find more homes more quickly.”

“This program is incredibly exciting because it allows us to put a unique spotlight on our extraordinary canine residents,” says SPCA Chief Communications Officer Gina Browning. “With the help of Linus and the Buffalo Sabres, we’ll be able to tell an entirely different audience how remarkable these dogs are and hopefully encourage them to add our dogs to their family teams!”

Those who cannot adopt but still want to be a part of Ullmark’s Barks and help the SPCA care for homeless dogs can donate toward the Ullmark’s Barks Fund.
