Each November, William Mattar’s ‘Rescue a Shelter Animal’ program highlights the need for the public to support local rescue groups and how a shelter pet can enrich your life. This year Buffalo car accident attorney William Mattar surprised local shelters with donations and met with volunteers and some of the furry, temporary residents. There is also an extensive list of shelters, rescue groups and resources from Western and Central New York at www.williammattar.com. If you do not see your favorite local group on the list, email dawn@williammattar.com to have them add it to their list, which is online year round.
