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.

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE WELLSVILLE AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE!!! The Wellsville Chamber of Commerce was gracious enough to donate their old copier to the shelter, which is a huge help in our daily paperwork and printing our adoption forms...and some of the cats have really taken a liking to sitting up high on the copier!!!
NEW BUILDING FUND - How you can help to build our new building!
Here's is another creative way to help the SPCA raise money towards a new shelter - Karisma Boutique on Main Street in Wellsville is making special cat & dog jewelry - 1/2 of all sales of these one of a kind pieces will be donated to the SPCA building fund. Handmade jewelry from K. Rox Designs created locally at Karisma Boutique, 324 North Main Street in Wellsville. Another creative idea by a local business owner to help raise $$$ for our new building: On September 10th from 6pm-8pm - Better Days had a SPCA Happy Hour and presentation of New Shelter Building Fund Check. A good time was had by all that attended the Better Days presentation of the $6,400 Andrew Harris and Better Days crew have raised since May 2011 - by adding $1.00 to every chicken wing order. We were thrilled by the amount that was raised and are truly grateful for this donation!!! We did promptly deposit it into our New Building Fund at First Citizens National Bank, we may use this money towards the intial design of the building. Thank you Andrew and Crew at Better Days for thinking of the SPCA and always lending a hand in helping to raise awareness and raise the much needed funds to care for the animals in need!
First Citizens National Bank in Wellsville is also taking donations towards our New Shelter, all donations are appreciated...just let the tellers know you would like to donate to the SPCA and they will put the donation into the SPCA new Building Account.
