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.

NEW SHELTER NEWS: "GIVE ME SHELTER"
Our new shelter is FINALLY done and we have moved all the animals to our new shelter!! We are happy to report that we have opened our doors on February 23rd 2019. And our GRAND OPENING was June 1st, 2019! In 2020 we will be having a celebration in June to celebrate our 1st year in our new shelter.
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. We also worked with Animal Arts in Colorado to assist in the layout and flow of the building. Kinley Corp from Allegany NY constructed our state of art facility. 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. Our goal is to reduce the stress on the animals and to provide a healthier environment and to focus on enrichment and socialization activities for the animals in our care
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 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 vision and dream possible. Our NEW home is located at 5440 State Route 19 in Belmont, NY 14813....download>>
