Erie County SPCA unveils design of new facility

TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) – The SPCA Serving Erie County is unveiling the design of its new facility in West Seneca that leaders say they hope will improve operations.

Officials say the original shelter on Ensminger Road in Tonawanda was built in 1962 as a means to accommodate some animals that did not have homes. But now the needs of the community have changed and the SPCA provides extensive services to thousands of animals though an infirmary, behavior modification treatment and adoptions.

The SPCA says the bigger space in West Seneca that will have kennels built to present-day standards, internal departments that will allow for an increase in animal treatment, a larger medical area and private consultation rooms.
