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 Tuesday !
Perfect way to kick-start an awesome week with 6 adoptions!
On our Canine side we had our two lovely boys Jesse and Hugo and our two ladies Armenia and Pepper. Jesse is headed home with 2 other four-legged siblings and showered with love and affection by his mom. Hugo is headed home as the only pet where he is going to be spoiled and loved unconditionally by his dads. Armenia’s mom could not wait to come back and bring her home where she is going to be able to give lots of kisses to her new mom and be shown all the ropes by her new sibling’s. Ms. Pepper’s mom came in looking for a furever friend she would be able to love and spoil and she instantly fell in love with Pepper.

On our Feline side, we had our two gentlemen, Mr. Scoob and Mr. Francis. Both boys jumped in their carriers and could not stop purring as the headed home. Both headed home as the only child where they going to get all of their parents attention and love.
Congratulations to everyone!
We will reopen tomorrow from Noon-5pm! Come on in and meet your next best friend.

Hey there, I’m Opollo and I’m finally ready to settle down. I’m not for the party life style; I would prefer a nice quiet house. I wouldn’t mind finding someone to Netflix and chill with on the weekends and the weekdays for that matter. Come on in and meet me, during the month of February I’m considered a shelter sweetheart. My adoption fee was only going to be $25, but someone sponsored me, which means my adopted fee is now $0!!! ... See MoreSee Less
