Meet Our Pets!

Central to our mission at Dutchess County SPCA is the securing of loving, responsible, permanent homes for our pets. Each year, the DCSPCA adopts out approximately 1,500 animals into loving homes.  


Note: We have found that a quiet shelter greatly reduces anxiety in our animals. You will need to have submitted an application that has been pre-screened before coming in to meet the animals. When you visit, you will be accompanied by a staff member to view animals that meet your search criteria.
