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.

The Campaign for The SPCA Serving Allegany County - Give Me Shelter


April is PREVENTION of CRUELTY to ANIMALS and the SPCA is working with numerous stores and banks throughout the county with our PAW PRINT campaign for the whole month of April.  For only $1 you can purchase a PAW PRINT in support of Preventing Animal Cruelty and you can write your name or your Pets name or your business name on the Paw Print to help support the SPCA in caring for the many animals that pass through our doors due to animal cruelty.  The PAW PRINTS can be purchase at:  GIANT in Wellsville, First Citizens Bank, Short's Deli, all ALCO Credit Union locations, all Steuben Bank branches, Maier's Market in Andover, Criss Market in Belmont, Shop'n Save in Fillmore, Reed's Market in Genesee, PA,  Shop'n Save in Bolivar, the Brute in Hornell and of course right here at the SPCA!!!


Our new shelter is moving along in 2017 and our goal is to complete it in the summer of 2018.  As planned, the SPCA Serving Allegany County has completed Phase 1 of building our new animal shelter in January 2016...and we are in Phase 2 - completing the Cat section, spay/neuter clinic and the main section of the shelter. -  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.

Our CAT of the WEEK is CRUELLA and I am 2 1/2 years old! I am a feisty girl who is looking for a home where I can be Queen of the castle and ruler of my new kingdom! I may not be the cuddliest of cats and I need a home where I can live without other animals or children, but I do have a great desire to live in a home! Right now I am ruler of my cage and defend my space from the other cats, but I do enjoy being pet by the staff members and think I would feel less defensive if I could have an entire house to myself without other cats around. If I am feeling less defensive in a home, I may be more loving and willing to bond with a family. It is hard to live in a place surrounded by other animals when all you want is a little peace and quiet without them around - not having a moment of peace would make anyone cranky! If you are willing to give me a chance at happiness and a home where I can be comfortable instead of constantly feeling like I must defend my territory, I'd love to meet you and give each other a chance to become lifelong friends!


Hi there! My name is WINNIE and I am the featured DOG of the WEEK. I am a little over 5 years old. I have been at the shelter for over a year now and I think it's because people can't handle my vivacious personality! I get really excited when I meet new people and I really love going for walks so I can be quite vocal when I see new people because I think everyone wants to take me for a walk! I am completely housebroken and refuse to make a mess in my space because no one likes a dog who doesn't know how to stay tidy! I do get a little nervous around new people - especially if they don't plan on taking me for a walk - so I need a family who is willing to come meet me more than once and let me get to know them so I can trust them before we go home together! I would really prefer a home with a fenced in yard where I can play, lots of stuffed animals for me to cuddle and play with, and a home that has no other pets or children. Do you think we could enjoy life together? You won't know unless we give it a shot! Come meet me and maybe we will end up being the best of friends!

Our shelter hours are NOON to 4pm EVERYDAY.  We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South, Wellsville, NY
