Buffalonians love their animals. From the stepped up vegan movement, to support for the expansion of the Buffalo Zoo, it’s a great time to be an animal lover in this city. And as Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Buffalo is home to no kill shelters, and plenty of animal rescue groups. In fact, a new animal rescue group has been formed by Danielle McCall, who has named her rescue effort Nickel City Canine Rescue.
“Nickel City Canine Rescue was created and named after this fabulous city,” said McCall. “As the president of Nickel City Canine Rescue, I have been working in the rescue community for about 5 years. Buffalo never ceases to amaze me when it comes to its support the rescue animals. Many other rescues in other cities are not as fortunate to have the support of their community. When Nickel City Canine Rescue was founded I wanted to give Buffalo a rescue that would support the community as much as they support us!”
The central focus of the group’s mission is to find placement for unwanted animals that are at risk of being euthanized. The group also helps to provide the at-risk animals with basic needs to make them happy – most importantly being loved. McCall has set out to raise awareness of the plights of homeless animals, while educating the public on animal welfare issues.
Not only is McCall a huge fan of animals, she’s also a big supporter of Buffalo, which is why the non-profit’s logo was created using Sabres-themed colors.
In 2019, be sure to keep a look out for the selfless efforts of McCall and her rescue team. This latest rally to rescue all of the less fortunate animals in Buffalo is another big step towards living in a great city, for people, and their pets.
