Serving Animals and People in
Allegany County of New York

The SPCA's mission is to attend to the needs of the abandoned, neglected, and abused companion animals of Allegany County. Change is constant at the SPCA shelter. Animals in great need of care and compassion continually arrive as others are adopted out into their forever homes. The furry faces may change, but the need never goes away.

Our new shelter is moving along in 2017 and our goal is to complete it in the summer of 2018.  As planned, the SPCA Serving Allegany County has completed Phase 1 of building our new animal shelter in January 2016...and we are in Phase 2 - completing the Cat section, spay/neuter clinic and the main section of the shelter. -  We started construction with Kinley Corp from Allegany on July 20th, 2015 our geo-thermal is in the ground an we are heating our building using the geo-thermal heat system. 

The shelter building has been designed by Clark Patterson Lee from Olean using the latest shelter design techniques, including sound mitigation, energy efficiency, air exchange and sanitation. Improved systems will make the building more comfortable for volunteers, visitors, and our resident animals. In addition, the SPCA has incorporated "green" building strategies to minimize environmental impacts and increase efficiency, such as geo-thermal for our heating and cooling and solar arrays.  We have chosen to construct the new shelter out of ICF (insulated concrete forms) - comprised of styrofoam inner and outer walls and concrete poured inside the walls which not only has a high R-value, but it also will act as a sound barrier. 

This has been all made possible by our donors, bequests and several grants.  The construction of our Low Income Spay/Neuter clinic was made possible by the ASPCA's NY State Animal Population Control Program grant.  We received $100,000 in 2015 to start the clinic and in 2017 we have been approved for another $204,932 to complete the interior construction of the clinic along with outfitting the clinic with the surgical equipment needed.  The Spay/Neuter clinic is critical in helping to control the animal population in Allegany County.  We also received another grant from the Pedigree Foundation for $10,000 from their Program Development Grants for our indoor Dog Exercise Arena.  These funds are being used to help to complete the indoor Dog Arena.  The goal is to reduce the stress on our dogs by giving them the opportunity to have some out of the kennel time for some exercise and play-time in the arena...thus helping them become more adoptable.  A special THANK YOU to the ASPCA, Pedigree Foundation, Bertha Hamilton FOundation & Newman's Own....and let's not forget all of our donors who have made this possible.

Our CAT of the WEEK is SEBASTIAN This young guy has a lot to say and he wants to make sure everyone knows. So he would like to start by letting you know that his name is Sebastian and that he is a sweet boy who is looking for a great home that he can call his own. As he was a stray a stray before coming here, he would like to mention that he is done with that life and is ready for the life of a proper house cat. Sebastian would like to inform everyone that he loves affection and asks for it in a very vocal manner but you might have gotten that hint already. He is a chatty boy and would like someone to talk to. He would also like to make it know that he does enjoy the other cats and wouldn't mind having some cat friends in his new home. Sebastian hasn't met any kids or dogs while he has been here but would more than likely be ok. So before he loses his voice, Sebastian would like to state one more thing, that is if you think you could carry a conversation with this handsome lad then please stop into the SPCA to meet him so that he can tell you about himself. No need to "break the ice" here, Sebastian will lead the conversation and you both can chat the day away!


Our DOG of the Week is SISSY Hi! My name is Sissy and I am almost 8 years old! A few years ago, I had some medical issues and now my face droops a little and my head is tilted but it just adds to my beauty! I am a very energetic girl for my age and I need a home where I will get a lot of exercise and playtime so I can expel all of my excess energy! OH - and if you have some chew toys, that's an added bonus! I am a quirky, loving girl with a personality no one can refuse! I need a home where I am the only pet because I am so much fun you couldn't handle more than one! I am also looking for a home where someone is home most of the time. I really don't like being alone, so a stay at home dog mom or dog dad would be best for me. So, if you are looking to add a four-legged friend to your home, come meet me ... Oh, the adventures we'll have together!

Our shelter hours are NOON to 4pm EVERYDAY.  We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South, Wellsville, NY
