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.

"The cat is out of the bag and our tails are a waggin at the SPCA!!!" The land which has been graciously donated to the SPCA on Route 19 in Belmont by Kevin and Claudia Gildner is NOW under construction.  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 - Phase 2 is planned to start in 2016 and will take about 4 - 5 months to complete.  We started construction with Kinley Corp from Allegany on July 20th, 2015. LaForge's has been doing the excavation work, our geo-thermal is in the ground an we are heating our building using the geo-thermal heat system.  The contractors have moved forward with completion of the building shell.  We now have a roof, doors and windows, plumbing, insulation and in floor heating  and concrete floors have been poured.

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.  We are taking a break until we are ready to start construction on Phase 2,  as we are still working on our capital campaign to raise the rest of the funds needed to complete Phase 2.  We are also funding this project with a few grants.   Once the funds are raised we will give the green light to our general contractor to go ahead and move forward with Phase 2 - our plan is to complete the shelter in 2016 and move all our furry friends into their new home - as they have been patiently waiting!  Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook for updates. 

A special THANK YOU to all of our donors who have made this possible and thank you to all that attended our Donor appreciation event held on Feb 28th, 2016 at the new shelter, we had a very good turnout and we were able to share our progress with our donors.  In October 2016 we have embarked on starting Phase 2 of the shelter...soon all the siding will be up and the contractor can move inside to start framing all the walls in.  Stay tuned for progress reports!

Dog of the Week is ZOEY

Our DOG of the WEEK is ZOEY - Zoey is a 3 1/2 year old female Weimaraner.  She is spayed and up to date on her vaccines.  Zoey was a surrender after ongoing issues with living with other dogs.  She wants to be top dog and therefore the only dog in the house. She has never been around cats before.  Zoey is exceptionally well behaved and mellow, she walks great on a leash and she knows how to sit.  She is housebroken and is able to be left in the house uncrated.  She is quite beautiful and extremely sweet, she is wonderful with adults and children and loves everyone she meets.

CAT of the Week - JUNIOR

Our CAT of the WEEK is JUNIOR - He is a short haired, adult neutered male and is an orange tiger cat.  He was brought to the shelter as an injured stray.  He had suffered a bite wound to his lower back and also had an injury to his ear from a suspected cat fight.  He is all healed up now and is ready to start the next chapter in his life.  Junior is a very laid back cat who will play every once in a while, but he prefers to sleep and eat for the most part.  He is now one of our office cats and can be found laying around on the desk in our main cat room.  He is rather shy and would do best in a quiet home.

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!
