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!

Happy Wednesday!
We had five wonderful adoptions today!
Cammie and Macy Grey (together), Semi and Carson (also together) were very happy to learn they would all be going home, especially with friends!
Drasti was our lucky dog to go home today! She was barely even in the Adoption Center before her new family found her. It was love at first sight and they just knew she had to be a part of their family. She will be going home with a canine brother to keep her company!
Our Adoption Center will reopen tomorrow at noon. Be sure to stop in and see all of our available animals!
Also, check back later tonight for a big announcement!

Freckles is working on perfecting his most flirtatious face to attract the attention of his new family!

He is hoping it works soon, because he is really getting tired of the shelter life. Freckles is definitely a class clown, and needs plenty of space to put on his show.

If you are looking for some full time love and entertainment, Freckles is your man!
