The Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres are partnering to hold a pet adoption event at KeyBank Center on Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This special community event will raise awareness for the thousands of pets across Western New York that do not have a place to call home.

Many of WNY's animal shelters and rescue groups will gather at KeyBank Center to spotlight homeless pets that are currently available for adoption, and give members of the community an opportunity to meet a wide variety of pets in one location.

"This Pet Adoption event was created in the same spirit of teamwork that our beloved Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills extend beyond the ice and the field to make our community stronger. It's a celebration of that teamwork, uniting rescues, shelters and our devoted pet community in a powerful collective mission: to rescue and find families for homeless pets," said Tina Chaudhry, President of WNY's Furtastic Adopt-A-Thon.

The following shelters and rescue groups have already signed up to attend the event: Awesome Paws Rescue, Rescue Buffalo and City of Buffalo Animal Shelter.

Prospective adopters must bring a photo ID to the adoption event, along with a landlord's permission letter if they live in a rented home, and be prepared to cover the adoption fee at the event.
