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 Campaign for The SPCA Serving Allegany County - Give Me Shelter


December 12th - Annual Holiday Cookie & Baked Goods Sale & PET PICS with Santa at the Wellsville Elementary School from 9am - 2pm - We are looking for volunteers to bake - Just contact the shelter at 593-2200 or email us at spcaallegany@gmail.com


"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 building shell.  We now have a roof and windows, soon our plumbing, in floor heating piping and concrete floors will be poured.

The shelter building has been designed using the latest shelter design techniques, including sound mitigation, energy efficiency, air exchange 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.  The goal is to have Phase 1 completed and paid for by December 2015 and then we will be taking a break as we are still working on our capital campaign to raise the rest of the funds needed to complete Phase 2. Once the funds are raised we will give the green light to our general contractor to go ahead and move forward with Phase 2 - our plan is to complete the shelter in 2016 and move all our furry friends into their new home - as they have been patiently waiting!  Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook for updates.

Our DOG of the WEEK is MAIZE - and NOVEMBER IS ADOPT A SENIOR DOG MONTH - She is an older gal around 10yrs old 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.  Stop in at the shelter to meet this beautiful gal as she lounges on her couch in her kennel!


Our CAT of the Week is CHURCH - I am a smaller cat, and tend to be rather shy. I was brought to the SPCA after being found sitting in the snow during one of the really cold days this past winter. I had a limp, but the vet thinks it was just because my feet were so cold. I was really withdrawn when I first got here, but now I really enjoy being pet and have also discovered the joys of catnip. I spend most of my day snuggled up sleeping on my pillow, and have even dared to venture out and explore my surroundings. I seem to get along ok with the other cats, and have been the victim of some bullying as I don't fight back. I would probably prefer a home with no dogs though. Come take me home and give me chance to learn how to trust you, and you will have a loyal loving companion for life!

 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!
