DUTCHESS COUNTY SPCA

The Dutchess County SPCA, located at 636 Violet Avenue, Hyde Park, NY  12538, is a private nonprofit organization serving the animals and community of Dutchess County since 1871.  As the third oldest animal welfare agency in the country, we envision a community in which there are caring, compassionate, respectful relationships between humans and animals, and that all adoptable animals have homes. We do this through our PAWS education programs for all ages, the humane law division which serves Dutchess County, the on site veterinary clinic, and our Adoption and Education Center.

We are an independent non-profit organization;  we are not a governmental agency. We do not receive funding for our operations from federal, state or local governments or national groups – We rely on generous community members like you!  As a No-Kill animal shelter since 1992, we make a promise to every adoptable animal in our care – that we will never give up trying to find them a home! We invite you to stop by, visit the animals and maybe find your next best friend!

Check out the handsome boy Bentley Lee that Adoptions Manager Chris brought to Q92 this morning! As most of you will remember he has been to Q92 once before, since then he was adopted and returned. Like Chris said, sometimes bringing the animal back is what's best for all parties. A return is not a negative situation, but just more information to help find the best fit for that animal. So for now this handsome boy is back available for adoption! #makehomehappen #chewsadoption #DCSPCA #adoptdontshop

Hey everyone, I’m Dumpling, and I’m totally a big ball of love! My favorite activities include getting my belly rubbed, playing with squeaky toys, and trying to prove that I’m not too big to fit on your lap. If you have a face in need of some kissing, come on in and meet me. Your lap will never be empty again!
