Buddy's Second Chance Rescue

3003 Walden Ave, Depew NY 14043

Buddy's Second Chance Rescue is a non-profit dog rescue that was established in 2013. We are a foster based rescue in Western New York and save dogs from various high kill shelters to help decrease euthanasia rates of innocent dogs. Buddy's Second Chance Rescue brings the dogs to Western New York where they live with their foster family until we are able to help them find their loving forever homes.

Save one until there are none!

Please check out our friends at Brewdogs and Fewines. They offer awesome Buffalo gear and animal rescue swag! A portion of each sale will be donated to us, here at Buddy's Second Chance Rescue!

Rest in Peace Amy

Buddy was the inspiration for Buddy's Second Chance Rescue. He was living in a shelter and scheduled to be euthanized, but as luck would have it he was spared his life and given a second chance. Buddy was then rescued by Julie Starr, the founder of Buddy's Second Chance Rescue, who became his foster family until Buddy was adopted by a loving family! Julie then paired up with Julie Covert and officially started Buddy's Second Chance Rescue, with a mission of "Save one until there are none!"
