High school senior starts bow tie business to help shelter dogs get adopted

A senior at Mount Saint Mary Academy in Kenmore has started a unique business to help shelter dogs at Niagara County SPCA get adopted. It’s called Bubba’s Bow Ties and the goal is for the community to see shelter dogs in their cages in a different light. Seventeen-year-old Kylie Cocca hand makes colorful bow ties for the homeless dogs to wear on their collars to give them some dignity and self-esteem.

“I started the Bubbas Bow Ties business to help dogs who are in need be adopted and to help make them more stylish. I love dogs and love to visit shelters with this! I plan to hopefully show off the bow ties to make the wonderful and adoptable dogs get homes,” said Cocca.
Cocca named the business after her bulldog who she lovingly nicknamed, Bubba. She recently
made a variety of bow ties for the shelter dogs of Niagara County SPCA, each one unique for boys and girls. She hopes that when people pass by the dogs in the kennels they will take a second look and see how truly amazing each animal is. She will also be selling the bow ties at the SPCA to help raise funds for the shelter.
