The SPCA Serving Erie County is moving to a new location.

On April 1, the SPCA will lock its doors to the public at 5:00 p.m. at its Tonawanda location for good and make its move to a new 52,000-square-foot shelter located at 300 Harlem Road in West Seneca.

The new location is scheduled to open April 10 at 8:00 a.m. for animal admissions and at 11:00 a.m. for adoptions. A public grand opening celebration is scheduled for May 13.

According to the SPCA, from now through April 1, animal adoptions at the Tonawanda shelter will be reduced by 20 percent. SPCA adoptions will be held at offsite locations from April 2 through April 9.
