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. 

A special THANK YOU to all of our donors who have made this possible.

DOG of the Week is MISSY

Our DOG of the WEEK is MISSY - She is one of the most smiley beagles ever! Missy is an approximately 10 year old spayed female and is now a much slimmer version of her previous self thanks to a diet and frequent walks. Missy is a very affectionate girl and she will do ANYTHING for a treat. Well, almost anything! She has met a few dogs but has yet to meet anyone that she wants to be BFF's with. Missy doesn't bother with the cats unless they come near her when she has food or a treat. She's not real big on sharing! Because of her age and the way she can get a bit snappy with food Missy would be best suited for a family with no young children. She would need to meet any other dogs in a potential new home. Missy would make a great companion for someone looking for a sweet, happy personality to brighten their day!

CAT of the Week - BAMBI

Our CAT of the WEEK is BAMBI - I have called the shelter home for nearly a year. I was brought in after being found hiding in a chicken coop with my litter of kittens. I was skinny, dirty and scared. A few months ago I began having issues with one of my eyes and had repeated infections that didn't respond well to medications. I was diagnosed with glaucoma last month. Putting the necessary medications in my eye each day became very stressful and I started to not want anyone to touch me even if they weren't trying to give me my medications. So, since I was so stressed out and my eye seemed very painful the vet recommended that it be removed. I have healed up nicely over the last few weeks and I feel so much better! I would prefer a quiet home, probably without children. I don't really like the other cats but could likely exist peacefully if they respected my space and left me alone. I am really not a fan of dogs at all! So, if you want a sweet cat who is ok just doing their own thing, stop by and visit me!

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!
