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.

PAWS UP to the Girl Scout Troup 40811!!!: from NYPENN Pathways in Wellsville, NY conducted a Clean and Cuddled campaign (service project) to help the SPCA. The Cadette Scouts collected donations from the community that focused on items needed to help clean and cuddle our furry friends at the SPCA. Each girl had to have a total of 50 hours of service or more to earn their Silver Award. This is the 2nd highest award in Girl Scouting. The community support was vital and they would like to thank Citi Salon, Kmart, Tim Colligan, Jan and Bevís Home Care Inc., and Denise Cruttenden for helping support this campaign. The entire community and their kind words as well as generosity are greatly appreciated. The girls spent many of their hours outside at the Colligan Memorial Park and at our local Kmart. Also, there was a donation box located at Citi Salon and Jane and Bevís so that the community had ongoing access to donate to our project. Members of the troop include: Lauren Feltz, Keara Ludu, Jesse Slocum, Jennifer Somers, and Reanna Plyler. Leaders are: Heather Plyler, Kathy Ludu, and Mary Somers.

"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.
