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!!!" Land has been graciously donated to the SPCA on Route 19 in Belmont by Kevin and Claudia Gildner. The SPCA Serving Allegany County is now moving forward with plans to build a new animal shelter. The current building, which was donated by the late Kenneth M. Clark, was constructed as an animal shelter decades ago and is in a dilapidated state. Years of use have taken a toll on the structure and the SPCA Serving Allegany County hopes to build a modern new shelter to better serve the needs of the people of Allegany County and its homeless animals.

The SPCA Serving Allegany County has started a Building Fund account at First Citizens National Bank and it has been growing over past few years. The SPCA has engaged the services of Clark Patterson Lee & Animal Arts whom have experience working on shelters and other non-profits and we have completed the final design of the new shelter. The SPCA has received bids from the contractors in December 2014 and we will be conducting interviews in January with the contractors.  To date, we have our water well installed in October 2013 and we now have a driveway!

The shelter building will be 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 will be looking to incorporate "green" building strategies to minimize environmental impacts and increase efficiency.

Dogs of the Week are CHUCKIE & LICORICE... We are 4 years old dachshunds and we were surrendered to the shelter and we are brothers. We have been together our whole lives and would like to stay together. We are complete clowns after you get to know us, but that could take a while. We don't trust strangers and who ever would like to adopt us is going to have to come visit us for a while before taking us home. We would be best suited to a home with no children or other pets. We love to be the center of attention and make great lap warmers!


Our Cat of the Week is OPHELIA I was found in a box at the bottom of the shelter driveway just about a year ago. I'm a really nice girl who doesn't understand why I don't have a family to love. I am rather shy at first, but I really like to sit and be petted. I don't always get along with the other animals, so I would prefer to be in home where I would be the only pet.

If you are interested in any of our Pets of the Week CHUCKIE or LICORICE OR OPHELIA, just call the SPCA at 585-593-2200 or visit us to see for yourself. Our Shelter hours are: noon to 4 pm EVERDAY!!. We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South in Wellsville, NY.  Don't forget to follow us on Facebook!
