Have You Found a Stray Dog?

Please contact your local police agency or animal control officer in the town in which the animal was found. This increases the animal’s chance of being reunited with its owner. The SPCA is unable to accept stray dogs.

Have You Found a Stray Cat?

If you found a healthy, stray cat, we are unable to accept the cat, but you can schedule a fee-based clinic appointment for your stray. The appointment will include an overall wellness exam, vaccinations, dewormer, feline leukemia test, and a microchip scan, all while you wait. We will provide you with resources to assist you in finding the cat’s owner. The cat will go home with you the same day. Call (716) 875-7360, ext. 209 Monday – Friday for information.
