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:  "GIVE ME SHELTER"

"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.  As planned, the SPCA Serving Allegany County has completed Phase 1 of building our new animal shelter in January 2016.   The project is broken into 2 phases - Phase 2 is planned to start in 2016 and will take about 4 - 5 months to complete.  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 an we are heating our building using the geo-thermal heat system.  The contractors have moved forward with completion of the building shell.  We now have a roof, doors and windows, plumbing, insulation and in floor heating  and concrete floors have been poured.

The shelter building has been designed by Clark Patterson Lee from Olean 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.  We are taking a break until we are ready to start construction on Phase 2,  as we are still working on our capital campaign to raise the rest of the funds needed to complete Phase 2.  We are also funding this project with a few grants.   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. 

A special THANK YOU to all of our donors who have made this possible and thank you to all that attended our Donor appreciation event held on Feb 28th at the new shelter, we had a very good turnout and we were able to share our progress with our donors.

PET OF THE WEEK

DOG OF THE WEEK - JACK


Our DOG of the Week is JACK - he is a 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier. He is neutered and up to date on vaccines. Jack was surrendered to us after his owner was diagnosed with a terminal illness and was no longer able to care for his pets, his former owner has since passed away. Jack is housebroken and will whine when he has to go outside. He does well on a leash and likes going for walks. Jack has a very quiet personality and loves nothing more than being pet and snuggled. He would do best in an adult only home and would make a wonderful, loyal companion! He came from a home with other dogs and cats and he is very easy going.



CATS OF THE WEEK - DIAMOND

Our CAT of the week is DIAMOND -, and I am a diva! I arrived at the shelter due to being hit by a car and was left for dead. When I arrived at the vets office I was barely alive, and they did not think I would make it...but somehow I did, so feel I am one lucky girl now! I have loads of personality (and attitude) and love to run at top speeds chasing anything that moves. Once in a while I will stop and maybe even let you pet me. I can tolerate the other cats, as long as they respect my space. If you want someone entertaining and independent, then come see me!


Our shelter hours are NOON to 4pm EVERYDAY. We are located at 1374 State Route 19 South, Wellsville, NY. Let our staff help you to find the right pet for you!
