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.

PAWS UP to the Girl Scout Troup 40811!!!: from NYPENN Pathways in Wellsville, NY conducted a Clean and Cuddled campaign (service project) to help the SPCA. The Cadette Scouts collected donations from the community that focused on items needed to help clean and cuddle our furry friends at the SPCA. Each girl had to have a total of 50 hours of service or more to earn their Silver Award. This is the 2nd highest award in Girl Scouting. The community support was vital and they would like to thank Citi Salon, Kmart, Tim Colligan, Jan and Bevís Home Care Inc., and Denise Cruttenden for helping support this campaign. The entire community and their kind words as well as generosity are greatly appreciated. The girls spent many of their hours outside at the Colligan Memorial Park and at our local Kmart. Also, there was a donation box located at Citi Salon and Jane and Bevís so that the community had ongoing access to donate to our project. Members of the troop include: Lauren Feltz, Keara Ludu, Jesse Slocum, Jennifer Somers, and Reanna Plyler. Leaders are: Heather Plyler, Kathy Ludu, and Mary Somers.
