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: "SNIP AND SPAY SPCA"
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 will be increasing our days of operation to 3 days per week. If you are interested in bringing your cat or dog in to be spayed or neutered please email us at SnipandSpaySPCA@gmail.com 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 is critical in helping to control the animal population in Allegany County.
