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!
