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

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 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. Special thanks to the ASPCA and to all of our donors who have helped to make this happen!
