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 early 2018.  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 JACK

Our DOG of the WEEK is JACK and he is an approximately 6 year old lab mix. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and micro-chipped. He is a very high energy boy and could benefit from some basic training. Jack has apparently lived with other dogs in the past, but at this time we are recommending that he be the only dog in the household. We are unsure as to how he will behave around cats as he has never lived with them before. Jack would be best suited for an active household where he can get plenty of exercise and play time to help wear some of his energy down. Because he is so high energy and tends to jump we would recommend that he not be placed with children under 12 years old. Jack is a very sweet, affectionate dog who has loved everyone he has met! He has the potential to make an amazing companion for someone who has a bit of time and patience to work with him!

CAT of the Week - LOUISE

OUR CAT of the Week is LOUISE
Meet Louise. She is a young adult orange female cat. Louise came to the shelter as a stray with her kitten, Stanley. Louise had a recent injury to her tail. The injury left her with a bobtail. We are unsure of what caused her injury, but she has healed nicely and is ready to find a forever home. Louise can be a bit nervous, so she would probably do best in a quiet home with no kids or dogs.

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!
