We are currently only open for adoptions by appointment, however we are planning on reopening for walk-ins in February - stay tuned for more updates on our open days/hours! We are open for donation drop offs 12pm-5pm Tuesday through Saturday. For redemptions or owner surrenders, please call our shelter at 607-753-9386.
We ask that all adopters fill out an adoption application ahead of time. Those can be found here. You can fill one out for a specific adoptable pet or put in a more generic application such as if you want to adopt just "kittens" or "small breed dogs". After your application is reviewed and approved, you will receive a link to reserve a time slot to come in and meet with all our adoptable pets. Most of our pets are "adoption ready" and can go home the same day you meet them! Don't forget to bring a cat carrier or a leash/collar for your dog. We are planning on opening for walk-ins starting in February - stay tuned for more updates on our open days/hours!
Yes, CCSPCA is a "no-kill" shelter as defined in the animal welfare industry, meaning every dog and cat in the shelter that can be saved is saved. "No-kill" shelters, like CCSPCA, are animal shelters that do NOT kill healthy and treatable animals even when the shelter is full, reserving euthanasia for terminally ill animals or those considered dangerous to public safety. You can view our live-saving statistics here.
If your lost pet is at our shelter, please contact us at 607-753-9386 ext. 4. All impounded dogs are subject to municipal impoundment, boarding and license fees. These fees are not kept by the SPCA.
