About the CNY SPCA

The CNY SPCA began in 1891 when a group of people became concerned with mistreatment of the mules on the Erie Canal. They are the only organization qualified to deal with cruelty and neglect cases in the CNY Area. They handle dog control for 20 towns in Onondaga County and cruelty for the counties of Onondaga (excluding the city of Syracuse, all of Madison County, all of Oneida County, and one town in Oswego County. Last year they took in almost 1,500 animals of which 598 were cruelty/neglect cases. They don't handle just dogs and cats; they also handle small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs etc), and livestock (38 chickens, 2 horses, 1 pig, and 6 goats in 2019).  

They have a low cost spay/neuter clinic because they feel that controlling the overpopulation of cats and dogs is the only way to make a dent in the homeless animal situation here in Central NY. Their website is
