The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Niagara, Inc. is a charitable community resource, dedicated to protecting and providing shelter and comfort to all animals in need. The mission of the Niagara County SPCA, Inc. is to prevent cruelty to all animals, to help educate the public on the humane treatment of animals and to provide love and care for those companion animals with whom we come in contact. We promote adoption and re-homing for abandoned and unwanted companion animals. We promote humane treatment of all living things and work within the law to respond to and investigate all complaints of cruelty and neglect.
The Adoption Process After you've found the perfect pet for you, a counselor will assist you in the paperwork process. If your new pet is not already spayed or neutered, he or she will be sent to a local veterinary clinic the next business day for surgery. Pick-up will be the following day. What you have to bring with you when you adopt The SPCA of Niagara requires photo identification with current address. If the address on the photo ID is not current or the photo ID does not include an address, another form of proof is required. A piece of mail or a vehicle registration will be accepted. We will take payment for the adoption at the time of the adoption. Please plan on spending time with your new friend prior to adopting him or her. You definitely want to meet your roommate before you allow him or her to move in! Please allow time for the adoption paperwork to be processed as well. Evening hours and weekends tend to be the busiest time.
