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!

Happy Saturday!

We had 4 fantastic adoptions today!

Our one very lucky feline to find his home to is Mr. Lenny! He is heading where he has another cat anxiously awaiting his arrival. He jumped right into his carrier and couldn’t wait to go home.

Our 3 lucky canines to find homes were Bounce, Arthur Curry, and Huckleberry. Bounce and Huckleberry are heading home as the only pets, but will get tons of love, attention, and exercise from their new families. Arthur Curry is heading home with a canine sibling, we have a feeling they are both going to keep each other occupied and tired!

Congratulations to all! We reopen tomorrow from Noon till 5pm !

Congratulations on the adoption of your new fur baby. Need to stop over when you bring him/her to visit mom and dad. Looks like someone Haley would love to run and wrestle with.

Justin Morgan ^ you guys need the orange one lol

Is Bertha good with dogs? For example, I have a very sweet, passive 7 year old Pug. He’s been around cats all of his life, so nothing phases him. ❤️

I would love to see the kitten if you get a moment ❤️

Cats don’t become hypothyroid, usually hyperthyroidism

Omg....Bertha is a chunk!
