BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Meet Hugo! He’s up for adoption through Buddy’s Second Chance Rescue.

While with us Thursday morning on Wake Up! Julie Starr from the animal rescue revealed their plans to expand.

With a 14,000-square-foot building on N. French Road in Amherst, Buddy’s Rescue is planning to have a doggy day care and adoption center opened by fall. In addition to that, the plan is to rent out space for groomers and trainers, and allow vendors to sell dog-related goods.

Starr is passionate about saving dogs with medical needs, which she says can be hard for a non-profit organization. But this will hopefully help bring more money in, allowing these animals to get the specific care they need.
