- About Us
The Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA offers a unique program to families in our community in need of a short-term, safe place for their cat or dog in the event of a domestic violence situation or being temporarily displaced due to an eviction or a home being condemned.
Many times pets are caught in the confusion of a quick move. If given the opportunity for a safe haven while the family works out their crisis, they can be returned to the owner and avoid being surrendered to the shelter.
This temporary program is intended to assist individuals in need of care for their pets while a permanent solution is sought. Emergencies include:
• Victims of domestic violence should work through their local social service or victim’s advocate agencies and have them contact us to arrange pet housing.
• Those faced with eviction or notices of condemnation are asked to provide a copy of such notice.
• Homelessness is a very serious concern to our organization and we are dedicated to providing a resource to our community when the need arises.
