The mission of the DCSPCA is the securing of caring, responsible, permanent homes for the adoptable animals in our care. We look forward to meeting new adopters and matching them with new pets. Anyone looking to adopt a pet from our shelter should read, print and bring in a completed Adoption Information Form. The Adoption Information Form 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 spay / neuter (if necessary), 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.
