2 Your Pet: Teressa

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Animal Shelter does a wonderful job of helping animals that have nowhere else to go. However, sometimes other organizations step in to help out.

That's the case this week with Teressa. This Staffordshire Terrier is being taken care of by the "Black Dog Second Chance" organization. This organization takes dogs off the hands of the shelter and places them into foster homes while they await adoption.

Teressa is 2 years old and has a zest for life! She loves being with people and is great with kids. She enjoys playing with other dogs and will always be there for you.

If you are interested in adopting Teressa, you can send an email to her foster mom here.

2 Your Pet airs every week on Daybreak Saturday.

This week's 2 Your Pet: Mikki

Suzanne Laba stopped by Saturday Daybreak to show us Mikki, a small lab-type canine who came from a home with 17 dogs!

Mikki was a bit shy when she came to the shelter, but has blossomed as she comes out of her shell and socializes with the other dogs. Mikki does have a flea allergy but has been treated.

She is about two-years-old and is a very sweet dog.

Three other dogs we have featured on 2 Your Pet are still available for adoption. Domino, Milton, and Douglas are all still looking for a good home!

To adopt Mikki, or any other pet, you can get in touch with the Buffalo Animal Shelter at (716) 851-5694.

You can also visit their Facebook page here, or visit their website here.
