The Dutchess County SPCA offers many programs and services to the community.  The DCSPCA began in a small building in Poughkeepsie in 1871, and opened a new Adoption and Education Center in 2012.  Within the building we have expanded our community relationships, offer more services and increased education programs for people of all ages.
