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 cat is out of the bag and our tails are a waggin at the SPCA!!!" The land which has been graciously donated to the SPCA on Route 19 in Belmont by Kevin and Claudia Gildner is NOW under construction. The SPCA Serving Allegany County is†in Phase 1 of†building our new animal shelter.†† We started construction with Kinley Corp from Allegany on July 20th, 2015.†LaForge's†has been doing the†excavation work, our geo-thermal is in the ground and†the contractors†have moved forward with the footers and the walls.

The shelter building†has been†designed using the latest shelter design techniques, including sound mitigation, energy efficiency 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.† Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook†for updates.

Our DOG of the week is MAIZE - She is an older gal who is a friendly and energetic older Rottweiler/shepherd mix. She loves attention and going for walks, and is looking for a quiet laid back home where she can be the only pet. Maize walks great on a leash and would do best in an adult only home, or with older children.


Our CAT of the Week is Jupiter, and I have been at the shelter for a few years now patiently waiting for my forever home. For a long time I was painfully shy, to the point that coming out of my cage or moving at all was very difficult for me. With some special attention and patience, however, I have blossomed and have even assumed the role of an office cat! I spend my time greeting other cats inside of their cages, observing the commotion around me, and most of all, napping and snacking. Occasionally I will run from one end of the shelter to the other for a little exercise! While Iím not a huge fan of being held, I love to be petted by both adults and children alike. I would be wonderful for just about anyone who seeks a calm, soothing, and low-maintenance companion. I would probably get along just fine with other cats, as well! If youíd like to get to know me even better, stop by the shelter to visit me! Iíll be waiting for you.

Our Shelter hours are: noon to 4 pm EVERYDAY. We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South in Wellsville, NY.††And don't forget to follow us on Facebook!
