Central to the DCSPCA mission is the securing of caring, responsible, permanent homes for the adoptable animals in our care. The Dutchess County SPCA adopts out over 1,500 each year into loving homes and we look forward to meeting new adopters and matching them with a new companion. The first step in the adoption process is to complete an Adoption Information Form. The application helps our adoption counselors assist adopters in the selection of a new pet, and allows us to determine whether an adoption is in the animal’s best interest.
Our adoption fee includes: the first series of vaccinations, leukemia testing or heartworm testing (as applicable), and a seven day health guarantee. All adopters will also be given a complimentary one year Dutchess County SPCA membership and be placed on our mailing list. We never sell or share our mailing list.
