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!!!" Land has been graciously donated to the SPCA on Route 19 in Belmont by Kevin and Claudia Gildner. The SPCA Serving Allegany County is now moving forward with plans to build a new animal shelter. The current building, which was donated by the late Kenneth M. Clark, was constructed as an animal shelter decades ago and is in a dilapidated state. Years of use have taken a toll on the structure and the SPCA Serving Allegany County hopes to build a modern new shelter to better serve the needs of the people of Allegany County and its homeless animals.

The SPCA Serving Allegany County has started a Building Fund account at First Citizens National Bank and it has been growing over past few years. The SPCA has engaged the services of Clark Patterson Lee & Animal Arts whom have experience working on shelters and other non-profits and we have completed the final design of the new shelter. The SPCA has received bids from the contractors in December 2014 and we will be conducting interviews in January with the contractors.  To date, we have our water well installed in October 2013 and we now have a driveway!

The shelter building will be designed using the latest shelter design techniques, including sound mitigation, energy efficiency and sanitation. Improved systems will make the building more comfortable for volunteers, visitors, and our resident animals. In addition, the SPCA will be looking to incorporate "green" building strategies to minimize environmental impacts and increase efficiency.

Dog of the Week is DEXTER... I'm a little tea pot short and stout! I am a 2-3 year old pitt mix. Everyone guesses I am mixed with Basset hound because of how short and stocky my legs are. I am a very energetic boy who needs a home with a stern philosophy. I am a very sweet and loving dog, I just need some structure, exercise and a little more knowledge of basic commands. If you are one of those people that believes great things come in small packages, well I'm the dog for you.!


Our Cat of the Week is CHEETO If you think I look angry in my picture, that is just how I look all of the time. I am a prince and shall be treated as such. I am an orange tiger male kitten who needs to be the only cat in the household. All of the other cats offend me and I will not be bothered with them. I love to be with people though and to let them pet me and adore me.

If you are interested in any of our Pets of the Week DEXTER OR CHEETO, just call the SPCA at 585-593-2200 or visit us to see for yourself. Our Shelter hours are: noon to 4 pm EVERDAY!!. We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South in Wellsville, NY.  Don't forget to follow us on Facebook!
