The Finger Lakes SPCA is our region's source for companion-animal supportive care services and humane education. Check out the animals in our care that make great family companions.
Animal Sheltering & Adoptions
Annually, the FLSPCA helps reunite families with lost pets and realize the adoption of hundreds of dogs and cats. Our shelter admits homeless animals from various sources, including private citizens, area dog control officers and law enforcement. Our policy is to hold all healthy animals until they can be matched to their special home irrespective of any set time. Our shelter provides veterinary care, socialization and enrichment opportunities for our shelter orphans while they wait for a family to call their own. To help ensure that our adopted animals do not contribute to overpopulation in our community, our shelter spays/neuters all canines and felines (that are medically approved) prior to adoption. Annually, FLSPCA also provides for and adopts a small number of equines who have been received from animal cruelty cases or other crisis situations (e.g. - an owner passing and no other option for care). Our organization, in recent years, has also been called upon by law enforcement to assist with the rescue and care of some hobby farm type animals (potbellied pigs, rabbits, ducks, chickens,). FLSPCA has helped these animal cruelty survivors with our county providing funding for their care until their animal cruelty cases were adjudicated or the animals were formally released by their owner. FLSPCA continues their care until they can be placed with a reputable rescue or into adoptive homes.
