Please join Paula Garber, MA Ed, CATEP, CFTBS, Certified Feline Training & Behavior Specialist, who will answer your questions and help you understand your cat’s behavior.

Why does my cat pee/poop outside the litter box? Why does my cat suddenly bite me after I’ve been petting her and she is purring? Why has my cat’s personality suddenly changed? How does what I feed my cat affect their health and behavior?

Please submit your cat behavior questions to penny@dcspca.org BEFORE the event. The presentation will be focused on addressing the feline issues of our audience,

This event is open to the public.

DCSPCA to Honor Animal Rights Advocate Mindy Franklin Levine at Annual Benefit

The Dutchess County SPCA is pleased to announce that Mindy Franklin Levine, renowned animal advocate and resident of Dutchess County and New York City, will be recognized as the esteemed honoree of its annual benefit in December.

For more information on
the DCSPA’s Holiday Gift for the Animals,
please contact lynne@dcspca.org

“DCSPCA is on a new path in its mission and operations,” said Lynne Meloccaro, Executive Director, “Mindy’s lifetime of work for the rights and safety of animals embodies the highest ideals of animal welfare.  In honoring her, we are confirming our dedication to those ideals.”  Since January, DCSPCA has undergone some sweeping changes, including the hiring of experienced animal care and medical directors, the instituting of new protocols that reflect the best practices in animal welfare, and the expansion of its humane law enforcement operation.

Levine is a passionate voice for a number of animal welfare causes, and along with her husband, New York Yankees President Randy Levine, has worked tirelessly in support of animal rights throughout the immediate area and across the United States as well as overseas.

“It is an honor and my pleasure to have an opportunity to participate in a joint venture with Dutchess County SPCA. I had originally signed on as a volunteer because my hopes and dreams for this shelter and humane law enforcement are being realized each and every day by the hard-working, dedicated staff and administration of DSPCA. One only has to look at their ever-increasing and successful adoption rates as well as their newsworthy advocacy in humane law – including several high-profile investigations and arrests – to understand the importance of such an organization in an area as critical to New York State as Dutchess County.”

In addition to her advocacy work, Levine also serves as Director of the Yankees Universe Fund, which supports children’s programs and pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Levine and her husband, Randy, reside with their seven dogs, six of which have special needs. The Levines also have four horses (including “Oreo” the former NYC carriage horse) a mule, a donkey, and two cows.

DCSPCA’s benefit will be held on Sunday, December 15 at the Culinary Institute of America.  All proceeds from the benefit will go directly to the care of animals in its shelter and medical facility.

The mission of the Dutchess County SPCA is to make the community safe and humane for companion animals and people in Dutchess County, New York.  Established in 1871, the shelter provides temporary accommodations for stray and homeless companion animals in an environment that meets or exceeds the needs of the companion animals, encourage adoptions with new families, and accessibility to veterinary wellness treatment.  To make a charitable financial contribution, please call (845) 452-7722 or visit dcspca.org
