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!!!" 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 an architect firm with experience working on shelters and other non-profits and we are in phase one of the design process. 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.

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.

Don't forget...the First Citizens Community 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. Or you can donate from the comfort of your home computer via Pay-Pal, just click under the Donate section on our website, or stop into our shelter at 1374 State Route 19 South, Wellsville, NY 14895 or mail donations to our shelter address at: SPCA, P.O. Box 381, Wellsville, NY.



Our Dog of the Week is FOGHORN. "Boy, I say Boy"...any ideas where I get my name from? I am a large 3 year old male Treeing Walker Coonhound. And the nose definitely knows! I love going for walks and exploring all the different smells I find. I would do best in a home with no cats or small pets, and would have to meet any other dogs in the household. I also require a home where I can stay safely confined or else I will follow my nose and probably find trouble. I am just a big, sweet, goofy boy who loves people. So, if you love hounds with big hearts, then maybe I am the boy for you!


Our Cat of the Week is MADEA "I like big cats and I cannot lie"...yeah, that should be my song! My name is Madea and I'm about as big as they get. The shelter staff all joke and tell me I have a bit too much junk in my trunk. I am a pretty laid back (ahem, lazy) cat who loves nothing more than to lounge around in the sun all day long. Oh, except food. I really love my food too! I can have a bit of attitude and would much prefer a home with no other cats. Dogs might be ok, as long as they stay away and leave me alone. So, can I come to your house and live the rest of my life a fat and happy girl?

If you are interested in MADEA or FOGHORN , 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.
