November Shelter News

Happy November everyone!

Looks like the rain might hold off for a day; the yards at the shelter are so muddy now that the dogs haven’t been getting as much play time as usual, just road walks and play time in the Learning Center thanks to the volunteers.  October was slower for adoptions, probably due to all the rain, but more than 210 dogs and pups have found homes so far! 

We do have some adorable puppies that will be available in a few weeks.  These cuties were born at the shelter September 29th.   Their mom (who is also up for adoption) is pictured on the website too, but their dad is unknown.   We are accepting applications now; an application does not commit you to adopt, but will let us know you are interested and gives us a chance to check on your information.  Make sure you have the time, energy and commitment for a puppy.  They are so sweet, but they will need you to help them become the best possible adult dog they can be!  Many of the available dogs can be seen online too at


Are you looking for a fun event to attend next month?  Come see Johnny Peers and the Muttville Comix for only $15 at the Marvel Theatre at Fredonia State December 1st with shows at 2pm and 7pm.  The link  HERE has all the information.  Use the word CANINE when ordering your tickets online to save $1; 20% of the purchase will benefit NCCR!

Have you stopped by the shelter lately?  We were very fortunate to have some local businesses donate their time, supplies and equipment to create a new parking lot for us.  Support like this is what helps keep the shelter running.  Stop by and see us at 7540 N. Gale St. in Westfield.  We operate independent of the weather and are open rain, sunshine or snow Monday-Saturday from 1-3pm or by appointment by calling 716-326-7297.

We give thanks this month for all the support we receive throughout the year.  This small shelter would not be able to do what we do for the dogs and pups were it not for the adopters, volunteers and donors who help us out.  If you opened your home to one (or more!) of our dogs we thank you and love hearing from you.   We always have dogs available for adoption….big, small, puppies or seniors….there always is a canine looking for their “furever” home.  We thank our dedicated volunteers, who are willing and committed to giving a minimum of just 3 hours a week to help out.  Lastly, we thank you for donating, be it money or supplies like the items listed on our wish list page on the website at, or bigger items for the ever ongoing building/kennel projects that help improve the dogs’ stay at the shelter.    Your support helps keep this place running, and we thank you!
