Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The SPCA of Westchester was founded in 1883 by Ossining resident Mary Dusenberry after she observed horses being mercilessly whipped and beaten as they trudged up nearby hills to deliver heavy loads of coal. Together with caring friends, she obtained land on which to build the Society's first home and established a fund to be used to prevent cruelty to animals. The SPCA is still located on the same spot, making it one of the oldest landholders in Briarcliff Manor.

Originally, the SPCA of Westchester was affiliated with the ASPCA of New York City, but became an independent organization in the 1920s. Today, it is the only humane society in Westchester County empowered to enforce laws relating to animal cruelty. Despite this, the SPCA gets no federal, state, or county funds. So we rely solely on the financial support of people who care about the welfare of animals. If you care about animals, we need your help and welcome donations!

About Our Shelter:

The SPCA is recognized as a “no-kill” shelter as it never euthanizes an animal except in cases of terminal illness, extreme aggression, or the inability to maintain a reasonable quality of life in a shelter environment.

Through its Simpson Clinic, the SPCA offers to the public low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations in an effort to help people keep their pets healthy. Since establishing the clinic in 1983, we have spayed/neutered 38,000 dogs and cats, successfully reducing the number of strays brought to our shelter by 50% over the last 10 years.

The SPCA is the only shelter authorized by New York State to enforce the laws as they relate to animal cruelty in Westchester and neighboring counties without an SPCA. Each year our Humane Law Enforcement Agents investigate over 1,200 cases of suspected animal abuse and take definitive steps to correct the problem if evidence of cruelty or neglect is found.

For over a decade, SPCA volunteers have been taking specially trained shelter dogs to healthcare facilities in our area, bringing people and animals together to combat loneliness and isolation. This program benefits not only the people who we visit but also the shelter dogs who receive special training and extra socialization before being admitted to the program.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
