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!

What a wonderful Thursday! We had seven animals find their homes today!
Bey Bibbles and Abby were our two canines to find homes today! Bey Bibbles’s parents met her a few days ago and loved her, so they brought in her new canine brother so they could meet! Abby didn’t even make it into a kennel before her new mom met her. She was on her way into the lobby and it was love at first sight.
We also had five felines find their homes today! George’s new dad couldn’t wait to bring him home and spoil him! Mister Cupcake was happy as could be to find his new mom and dad! Roman is going home with a new mom and a canine sibling. He is also going to have a big extended family close by that has already fallen in love with him. Charlie (camera shy) was officially adopted by his foster mom, and she absolutely adores him. Gem was a young adult who won the heart of her new human sister the second she saw her. As soon as she came out of her condo she knew she was the one!
Congratulations to everyone who found their forever homes today! We wish you all the best of love and luck with your new families! Our Adoption Center opens tomorrow at 2pm, stop in to visit with all of our adoptable animals.
