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.

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. 

This has been all made possible by our donors, bequests and several grants.  The construction of our Low Income Spay/Neuter clinic was made possible by the ASPCA's NY State Animal Population Control Program grant.  We received $100,000 in 2015 to start the clinic and in 2017 we have been approved for another $204,932 to complete the interior construction of the clinic along with outfitting the clinic with the surgical equipment needed.  The Spay/Neuter clinic is critical in helping to control the animal population in Allegany County.  We also received another grant from the Pedigree Foundation for $10,000 from their Program Development Grants for our indoor Dog Exercise Arena.  These funds are being used to help to complete the indoor Dog Arena.  The goal is to reduce the stress on our dogs by giving them the opportunity to have some out of the kennel time for some exercise and play-time in the arena...thus helping them become more adoptable.  A special THANK YOU to the ASPCA, Pedigree FOundation, Bertha Hamilton FOundation & Newman's Own....and let's not forget all of our donors who have made this possible.

DOG of the Week is JERRY

Our DOG of the WEEK is JERRY - I am 3 years old and I am one sweet guy! I arrived at the shelter with 26 dogs that I had been living with. I am a small dog, probably a mix between a chihuahua and a pug. I would love to live in a home with lots of people to love me and children would be fun to meet too! I love anyone who is willing to scratch my ears and let me snuggle in their lap! I am not sure how I would feel about cats, but I know I would be happy to live in a home with or without other dogs. I do have dry eye so I need to live with someone who will remember to put artificial tears in my eyes two times each day. I am not enjoying living in this noisy shelter environment at all and I have heard some of my friends are really loving their new homes, so I hope I get to go to my new home really soon! If you are interested in JERRY please contact the shelter at (585) 593-2200 or stop in between 12- 4pm daily!.
