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!

Hello there, my name is Rex. If I could talk, I’d be that old guy that stands on the porch and yells at the kids to get off my lawn. I’m kind of just a grumpy old guy that usually keeps to myself, but I don’t really mind the company of other cat friends. I’m basically looking for a home where I can just be myself, with lots of snacks and wet food of course!

PS- My tongue is out because I am missing most of my teeth, but I don’t mind!

Can he be around other pets or does he need to be the only one?

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

How old is he?

Someone please bring home this boy. He is so so sweet in person.

Where do you apply

What a sweet photo.

Oh I so dislike that many mobile home parks list these beautiful gentle animals as aggressive breeds. Grrrrrr I do have a dog...a shih Tzu lovely baby but sure would have adopted a Pittie if I could have.

Happy Saturday!

We had 11 great adoptions to tell you about!

On our canine side we had Caboose, Tex, Sandy, Noel, Rebel and last but certainly not least Mr. Hugo (who was part of our Scratch N' Dent promo)! All dogs were tails wagging as they headed out the door to start their new journey.

On our feline side we had kitten Lucas, and adult cats Lucy, Carter, and two more of our Scratch N' Dent promotion cats Snoopy and Fiona! It was all purrs as they headed out the building.

Congratulations to all! We reopen tomorrow from Noon till 5 pm! Come and in and adopt your next best friend!
