The SPCA in Cattaraugus County is a non-profit, no-kill, charity animal shelter that was founded in 1905. They are dedicated to saving the lives of animals and providing adoption services for homeless and neglected animals. Donations and fundraisers account for approximately 70% or more of their yearly income. Over the past 15 years, they have helped to find loving homes for over 25,000 animals. They are the largest animal shelter in New York's southern tier. They have 68 dog kennels (indoor/outdoor) and 4 rooms dedicated to housing cats, including 2 rooms that allow the cats to romp & play without being confined to a cage.
