Protect your pet. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs

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 2017.  As planned, the SPCA Serving Allegany County has completed Phase 1 of building our new animal shelter in January 2016.   The project is broken into 2 phases -  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.

DOG of the Week is UBU

Our DOG of the WEEK is UBU - I am about 2 1/2 years old and I am doing very well since I was neutered and separated from all of my friends. I was bullied by many of my friends because I am shy and more reserved than they are, but now I am starting to come up to the front of my cage, I like it when someone sits with me, and I LOVE belly rubs! I am looking for a home with no young kids because their fast paced life style is far from my liking - I am more of a sit back and relax kind of boy; no dogs that are going to bully me - but a nice companion/playmate would be kind of cool; and I think living with a cat would probably be alright! I need someone I can trust in my life who isn't going to expect a lot from me and adjust at my own pace. I also require a home with someone who will let me watch golf and tennis on the TV! I will definitely be asking people if I am allowed to watch sports in the recliner with them when I make my choice about who I want to go home with - I just need someone to come meet me first in order to have any chance at going home! If you think you want to give me a chance, I'll give you a fair shake even if I am not allowed in your recliner before counting you out, because I very much want to get out of this noisy shelter and begin my fresh start! If you are interested in UBU please contact the shelter at (585) 593-2200 or stop in between 12- 4pm daily!.

CAT of the Week - MISFIT

OUR CAT of the Week is MISFIT and I am a little over 1 year old! I came to the shelter in November of 2016 and have adapted very well to this environment because I love everyone that I meet! As long as I am getting attention, I am one happy boy! I am hoping I can go home soon though because I get really sad at the end of the day when the staff members go home and I am stuck here without anyone to love me. I really want to find someone who can accept my differences and give me the home I am longing so desperately to have! I look a little different than the other cats here because I am missing my left eye and my right eye is very hazy leaving me with little vision, but that doesn't stop me! I run around and play with all the other cats and although I bump into things once in a while or get lost if I travel too far from my cage, the staff members get me back on the right path when I cry out and I go back to having fun like nothing ever happened!

Our shelter hours are NOON to 4pm EVERYDAY.  We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South, Wellsville, NY
Let our staff help you to find the right pet for you!
