What we aim to solve

Wyoming County SPCA is a rural, low income farming community. We are said to have more cows than people. We have a large supply of roadside "free kittens" and many unaltered farm dogs. Wyoming County has a separate dog pound that intakes abandoned dogs and legal dog cases,

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Wyoming County SPCA is aiming to educate residents on humane practice, especially within the schools. We are also aiming to provide people who have limited means a way to have a pet without having unwanted pregnancies through a voucher program. We also are providing our community a chance to adopt a pet from our shelter that is healthy and altered. Our overall goal is to have as many cats and dogs as we can be cared for by a responsible human.

Wyoming County SPCA is working to reduce the overpopulation of cats and dogs in a rural farming community. We are doing this through three designated avenues. EDUCATION, to spread the word of the humane treatment of animals and the benefits of spay and neuter to reduce the number of unwanted births. Low cost-low income SPAY NEUTER incentives in partnership with local veterinarians to provide the low income residents of Wyoming County an alternative to unwanted births. ADOPTION to place relinquished animals and stray animals into nurturing, safe homes. All animals adopted from our shelter are altered prior to placement.

Wyoming County SPCA continues to seek funding thru NYS APCP for low cost spay neuter. We continue to offer low adoption fees to provide animals a home to all folks who desire a pet to care for. We try to best match the animal with the new home to assure the best chance for a life long bond. We continue to provide outreach at local events and schools to promote our mission and educate on the importance of spay neuter. We aim to extend service more families and their pets by seeking more community support and involvement.

Our measurement of progress will be the number of animals placed in homes, transferred to other organizations and by the number of animals spayed or neutered thru the low income low cost spay neuter program. All pets are altered and chipped prior to adoption.

We have a low income low cost spay neuter program. We have a collaboration with Genesee Community College Vet Tech Program. We have reached out to Wyoming County Community Action to offer help when they find a need for our services. We have a relationship with SPCA serving Allegeny County, our neighbor to our south.
