Mission and Vision

Who We Are

The Finger Lakes SPCA was founded in 1949 as the Bath Animal Shelter. We are a nonprofit organization supported by private donations and the local community. We serve Steuben County in West/Central New York State and the surrounding communities.
 

Our Mission

Our mission is to protect animals. We are dedicated to preventing animal cruelty and companion animal overpopulation. Our organization is committed to strengthening and supporting the human-animal bond through education about the humane treatment of all animals and responsible companion animal guardianship.
 

Our Vision

Finger Lakes SPCA envisions a time when our society celebrates the human animal bond by solving the animal overpopulation problem without euthanasia, ensuring permanent homes for every animal, and all animal suffering ends.
