The City of Buffalo animal shelter got some very good news. The shelter received a huge donation from a person who had adopted a dog from the shelter over 10 years ago.

Patrick Davis the CEO of Utilant Llc told WKBW that he was able to raise over $20,000 in honor of his dog Chase that he adopted from the shelter 12 years ago.

"We had a dog that we adopted here from the shelter about 12 years ago that when I founded my company here in Buffalo, we brought that dog into the office every single day of the week,"

Chase, unfortunately, crossed over the rainbow bridge last November, and that lead Davis to the idea of honoring Chase and raising money for the shelter that he was adopted from.

The donation was made to the non-profit "Friends Of City Of Buffalo Animal Shelter" who help raise money and take donations that are used to help facilitate programs and adoption at the shelter.

Friends of City Of Buffalo Animal Shelter offer several different donation programs for you to help the shelter. You can donate to the Special Paws and Silver Whisker program that helps with adoption fees for older animals at the shelter. You can make a general donation, or you can do what Patrick Davis did and make a donation in your pet's memory and the shelter will use your pet's name for a new pet up for adoption so that your pet's memory will live on.

The City of Buffalo animal shelter is located on Oak Street in Buffalo and houses both dogs and cats that are in need of forever homes.
