In 2020 and into 2021 the SPCA has been receiving hundreds of applications for our dogs and cats. Due to both Covid-19 and this overwhelming response we have received about our animals, we have changed our process. You must fill out an Adoption Application FIRST, and your application MUST be approved before we can schedule an appointment to meet an animal you are interested in adopting. The review and approval process may take a few days due to the volume of inquiries and applications we receive. It is best to E-MAIL us us to find out more on how to adopt one of our lovable dogs and cats available for adoption

To start the adoption process, please fill out an Adoption Application at the shelter or download the form down below and submit it to the shelter via e-mail or drop it off at the shelter

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's SPAY NEUTER CLINIC IS OPEN! We are happy to report that we have gradually opened our Clinic doors in 2020 and in 2021 we have increased our days of operation to 3 days per week, on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays. If you are interested in bringing your cat or dog in to be spayed or neutered please email us at to obtain more information along with an application and to schedule an appointment.

The construction of our Spay/Neuter clinic was made possible by the ASPCA's NY State Animal Population Control Program grant. We received $100,000 grant in 2015, along with a donor match to start building the clinic. In 2017 we were approved for another $204,932 to complete the interior construction of the clinic along with outfitting the clinic with the surgical equipment needed. Our clinic has been critical in helping to control the animal population in Allegany County.
