DUTCHESS COUNTY SPCA

The Dutchess County SPCA 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!

At the Dutchess County SPCA, we strive to do the best we can to help all of the animals that are in need. This video shows the love and compassion we give to those in our care. We want to do more for them by giving them the best possible place to stay until they find their forever homes. We need your help to acquire better kennels for our medical and intake areas. We can’t do it without you.

Happy Wednesday!

We had two wonderful felines find their forever homes today!

Kitten Tabatha’s (camera shy) new mom met lots of kitties today and knew she would be the best fit for her home. She will be going home with a canine sibling!

Cheekers, a senior cat, was also lucky enough to find his new mom today. She made a special trip here just for him! It was love at first sight!

Congratulations to Tabatha and Cheekers, we wish you lots of love and luck in your new homes! Our Adoption Center reopens tomorrow at noon. Be sure to stop in and see all of our adoptable animals!

Meet Chloe! This girl is just as sweet as she is gorgeous. She enjoys giving head butts, eskimo kisses, and being told how pretty she is.

Don't miss out on the chance to adopt her!
