BUFFALO, N.Y. (May 23, 2019) --- Pegula Sports & Entertainment and the Buffalo Sabres Foundation are partnering with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, to host a One Buffalo Pet Adoption Event on Saturday, June 15 in the KeyBank Center Pavilion from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event, part of the Tito’s Vodka for Dog People program, will bring many of Western New York’s animal shelters and rescue groups together under one roof and allow the community to encounter a wide variety of homeless pets that are currently available for adoption – all in one location.
"This event embodies the spirit of One Buffalo and is a true testament to teamwork. The One Buffalo Pet Adoption will bring together rescues, shelters and our pet loving community as one to help save the lives of homeless pets," said Tina Chaudhry, event organizer and co-creator of WNY’s Furtastic Adopt-A-Thon. "We are so grateful to have the generous support of the Bills, Sabres and Tito’s Handmade Vodka as we work closely with the community towards ONE common goal - to save the lives of as many homeless pets as possible. This adoption event will help save the lives of homeless pets and raise awareness to the plight of thousands of companion animals being killed every day in overcrowded shelters.”
"Adoption days are one of the best ways to make the world a better place for both humans and our furry friends," said Beth Bellanti, Program Manager of Tito's Vodka for Dog People. "Tito's Vodka for Dog People program supports the truest form of love on the planet: our pets! We could not be more pleased to be the presenting sponsor for One Buffalo, where we hope many pets will find their furever home."
Every adoption at this event will save two lives, the life of the adopted pet and life of the pet we’ve made space for in a shelter, rescue or foster home. Participating animal shelters and rescue groups include Buffalo C.A.R.E.S. Animal Rescue, Buddy's Second Chance, City Of Buffalo Animal Shelter, Open Arms Rescue of WNY, Ten Lives Club, WNY’s Furtastic Adopt-A-Thon, Joyful Rescue, The Silver Linings for Pit Bulls, Buffalo Underdogs Rescue, HEART Animal Rescue and Adoption Team, Awesome Paws Rescue, Be Their Voice Rescue, Pixie Mamas Rescue, A Pur-fect Fit Animal Rescue & Adoption Center, and Nickel City Canine Rescue.
Prospective adopters are encouraged to visit to view instructions and complete applications for all participating agencies.

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.
