Mike Randall on WKBW-TV

Saturdays * 9 am * AM Buffalo

*Each Saturday during AM Buffalo (Ch. 7, 9:00 am), Mike Randall features an SPCA animal NOT up for adoption....yet. At the time of filming, the animal featured by Mike is a YELP FOR HELP patient, receiving some kind of costly veterinary care at the SPCA prior to adoption. Missed a week? Look for the most current Yelp for Help segment on AM Buffalo's website page here!

See previous years' segments here!

*What is Yelp for Help? Well...not every animal comes to the SPCA Serving Erie County healthy and adoptable. Countless animals suffer from life-threatening illnesses and injuries, usually the result of being abused or neglected. They require immediate...and expensive...veterinary care that is often beyond our resources.

*Once treatment is administered, many require additional medical attention or intense socialization and behavior modification.

*The community-funded Yelp for Help program offsets the SPCA’s cost of caring for, and eventually making possible successful adoptions of, these special animals.

*Can you give these animals in need the chances they deserve? Save lives today. Together, we can help the animals who need us most! Become a Yelp For Help donor ! You can even become a YELP HELPER, giving on a monthly basis! To give by phone, call Colleen at the SPCA, 716-875-7360, ext. 227!

WECK So Happy Together
 with the Erie County SPCA!

Tuesdays * 8:35 am * WECK 102.9 FM/1230 AM


  • Twelve-year-old siblings!
  • Their owner recently passed away.  These are two cats who were very loved by their  owner and it shows because they really crave affection from people!
  • Martini is declawed; Panther is not.
  • When they first came here, we thought they were sort of ignoring one another, so we didn’t think they were as bonded as they are. We placed Martini in an off-site adoption location and Panther became so depressed that he wasn’t eating and he wasn’t even lifting his head off of the towel he was laying on. Less than a few days later, our staff decided to bring Martini back to see if that would lift Panther’s spirits, and did it ever! As soon as Martini was back in the room, he hopped right up and began following her around. He was chirping (a sign of excitement in cats) and he began to eat. SUCCESS!
  • Both of these beauties love attention and it doesn’t take them a long time to warm up to people. Panther is quicker to come forward, but Martini is always right behind him.
  • They love playing with people!

Meet Birdo at his foster home!


Hi! My name is Birdo and I'm a feisty Quaker Parrot found as a stray (yep....a stray) in Medina last month! I was on the move, seeking fun, friendship, and most of all, LOVE!

I love playing peek-a-boo, "fetch," and exploring new places - but I learned my lesson on that one.

After a long day of play there's nothing better than snuggling with my foster mom; she says I'm a real sweetie. We make each other happy together, and I'm ready to make a new mom or dad happy too!

Living at the shelter made me nervous so I am currently ruling the roost in my foster home.

If you have any questions, or you're interested in making an appointment to meet me, please call my friends at the SPCA! Just dial 716-875-7360, ask for Adoptions, and tell them you want to make an appointment to meet Birdo in foster care!


Question: What's sweet and sassy and always makes you feel better no matter what? Answer: Ginger Ale! And NOW you know how I got my name!

I'm 7 years old, and a little shy at first. That's why I tend to hide when a lot of people are around. Yes, it makes me feel safe, but the problem is, nobody knows I'm available for adoption! And you can SEE I'd make a great pet! Just watch my video at !

See me singing in this photo? Bring me home and let's make beautiful music together every day! The SPCA's volunteer AdvoCATS love me and can tell you more about me, and how I'd thrive in a quiet, peaceful home that includes a lot of head scratches!!

Meet me at the SPCA's 300 Harlem Road, West Seneca shelter! For more information, call the SPCA: 716-875-7360, ext. 233!

Adopt one of my dog friends now, and on Saturday you'll walk side-by-side at the SPCA Paws in the Park Dog Walk! If you and your new pet are way too busy that day, you can donate to your favorite walker! Details on how to register and/or donate are here!
