We are open for adoption walk-ins from 12pm-5pm Fridays and Saturdays, but we highly encourage putting in an adoption application before visiting. We take our last appointment at 4:30pm. We are open for donation drop offs 12pm-5pm Tuesday through Saturday. For redemptions, owner surrenders, or clinic services, please call our shelter at 607-753-9386.
We take walk ins on Fridays and Saturdays but we encourage all adopters to 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, visit our shelter on Friday or Saturday to adopt. If you cannot make it on a Friday or Saturday, give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule. 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.
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.
