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


Thank you to all that donated and purchased PAW PRINTS during the month of April for PREVENTION of CRUELTY to ANIMALS the SPCA worked with numerous stores and banks throughout the county with our PAW PRINT campaign for the whole month of April.  We raised thousands of dollars to help support the SPCA in caring for the many animals that pass through our doors due to animal cruelty.  The PAW PRINTS were purchased 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!!! THANK YOU TO ALL!!!


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 MARTIN and I am about 8 1/2 years old. I came to the shelter as a kitten in 2009. In 2011, my luck completely changed and I finally found a place to call home. I have lived a really great life and I have been so very lucky but, unfortunately, my owner recently passed away so I am looking for a new home where I will be just as loved! I'm real sweet boy and see the world through rose colored glasses as I see nothing but love! I can't help but to think every person I meet is the greatest person ever! I get along with other cats and do well in a home with them. Do you have room for the sweetest boy in the world in your heart? I know you won't regret loving me and I just can't wait to start loving you!


Our DOG of the Week is Cheekeitah pronounced like a Chiquita banana and I am a big, sweet girl! I am a Husky mix approximately 9 years old and could definitely use some help in the weight loss department! I am very sweet and haven't met a human I haven't loved yet. I'm not so fond of the other dogs and I haven't been around cats much. Before coming to the shelter I lived chained outside. Maybe its because of my history, maybe its my breed, but I really love being outside as much as I can! When I have to be inside I howl in protest until someone lets me go outside again. I would really love a home with a fenced yard and the ability to go in and out whenever I please, and maybe a nice deck where I can lay out in the snow or bask in the sun and enjoy whatever season it is!

Our shelter hours are NOON to 4pm EVERYDAY.  We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South, Wellsville, NY
 You can call or email us at 585-593-2200 or SPCAallegany@gmail.com  Let our staff help you to find the right pet for you!
