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!

Happy Thursday!

We had four fantastic adoptions today!
Our two felines to go home (both included in the Scratch & Dent Promotion) were Winnie and Pearl! Winnie will be going home with a few feline siblings, while Pearl will be going home to a canine sibling.
Our two guinea pigs Scooby and Shaggy were also lucky enough to find their forever homes! They will be going home with a few human siblings that will be sure to give them all the snuggling they could ever ask for!
Congratulations to everyone who was adopted today, we wish you all the best in your new homes. Our Adoption Center will reopen tomorrow at noon, be sure to stop in and adopt a new family member!

Hugo here! I’m young, handsome, and athletic… doesn’t get much better right? I LOVE to play ball in the yard, I’m totally trying to make it to the pros one day. I also love playing tug and with other toys. My former owners described me as playful, affectionate, active, friendly and happy. They also said that I’m house broken and that I behave well when I’m left at home alone. I’m really good at some of my basic commands and I love a ride in the car. I mean seriously, I’m a catch! I lived with dogs once, but I'd rather not do that again. I’m not sure what to make of those small humans that run around waving their hands in the air making noises.
