Pups at the Pen grad Chowder is waiting for you!

BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – Chowder is a young, enthusiastic, smart, entertaining, ‘the-glass-is-ALWAYS-half-full’ Pups at the Pen graduate! For the past six weeks, Chowder has lived with female inmates at the Erie County Correctional Facility in Alden.

Chowder is deaf, so under the tutelage of the SPCA’s Behavior and Training Department’s Rita, the inmates learned how to train Chowder on hand cues for ‘sit,’ ‘down,’ ‘come,’ ‘yes,’ and ‘no.’ Because of Pups at the Pen, the individual training and attention that Chowder received cannot be under-stated. This extensive training has been a blessing for Chowder and, ultimately, for whoever adopts her!

If you would like to adopt Chowder call the SPCA at 875-7360
