Restaurants to donate portion of Tuesday proceeds to SPCA Serving Erie County


Niagara Gazette — "Anything with the SPCA, we support very strongly," he said. "I think it's an awesome program, a great idea and I think more businesses should step up for our four-legged friends who don't have a voice."

Muscoreil himself is the owner of five dogs, including two new four-legged family members who were abused in their former situation, he said. 

"They have hearts of gold," he said. "I salute the SPCA and everyone who works for the program. All you have to do is provide love and food and warm shelter ... I don't know why that's so hard for some people.

"We need to all band together and stand up for the SPCA. I challenge all business owners and families and customers to stand up and help the SPCA or adopt an animal."

In another Tonawanda-area location, Squire's Tap Room, 127 Niagara St., Tonawanda, will donate 25 percent of lunch and dinner purchases to the SPCA. Lloyd Taco Truck will be appearing at the SPCA itself, 205 Ensminger Road, Town of Tonawanda, and donating a portion of the evening's proceeds.
