TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. ( WKBW ) Every week, "Eyewitness News This Morning" features animals from the Erie County SPCA who need some special help.

Today, Gina Browning introduced Mike Spong to a special dog we had met once before, who survived incredible odds.

Not every animal comes to the SPCA Serving Erie County healthy and adoptable. Countless animals suffer from life-threatening illnesses and injuries, usually the result of being abused or neglected. They require immediate...and expensive...veterinary care that is often beyond our resources. Once treatment is administered, many require additional medical attention or intense socialization and behavior modification.

The community-funded Yelp for Help program offsets the SPCA's cost of caring for and eventually making possible successful adoptions of these special animals. Can you give these animals in need the chances they deserve? Save lives today. Together, we can help the animals who need us most.

You can reach out to the SPCA at 205 Ensminger Road, Tonawanda 14150. Call them at 875-7360.
