Bills GM Brandon Beane and his wife Hayley are once again the ambassadors for Bills Muttfia, a Buffalo Bills pet adoption initiative. For every home game touchdown the Bills score, the Beanes will cover the cost of the adoption fee for an animal housed at the S.P.C.A. Serving Erie County.
Last year the initiative led to the adoption of 44 animals including 17 dogs, 14 cats.
