Frequently Asked Questions

Are you a 501c3?


Where is your location?

White Whiskers’ future home is 35 Lewis Road Akron, NY 14001. However, until we open our doors, we will be using our Post Office Box for all USPS mail. So our address for now is White Whiskers POB 366 Buffalo, NY 14225.

How soon will this happen?

We are working diligently to complete the renovations. Our goal is to be completely operational by the end of 2024.

What kind of a facility will it be?

We want a welcoming, comfortable facility for all – NO KENNELS! No concrete floors! Big old comfy sofas and dog beds for all! Because we want it to be available to humans who can benefit from interactions with dogs, we will have a meeting room, a kitchen area and retro-fitted bathrooms, compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act’s Guidelines.

How many dogs will you serve?

Our agreement with the Village of Akron is to house no more than 25 dogs at a time. However, with our focus on adoptions, we will positively impact many more

Will there be volunteer opportunities?

Yes! Once we are operational, we will need volunteers for dog care, cleaning, grounds keeping, and help with fundraising.

Will you be hiring?

Not at this time.

Will you be holding fundraising events?

Frequently, as we intend to keep this up and running for a very long time. Support will always be needed and appreciated!

How will you be a “community partner”?

We intend to work with local nonprofit agencies and populations that will benefit from the therapeutic nature of dogs, including but not limited to People Inc., literacy groups, and other social service organizations as well as Veterans associations. We also want a Memory garden, open to all, and ongoing, on-the-premises self-help group grief sessions for those who are mourning lost pets.
