Dogs Transported From Overcrowded Shelters in Louisiana and Alabama Are Now Up for Adoption!

Dogs from the South are looking for their FUR-ever homes in the Northeast


On Tuesday, August 30, Dutchess County SPCA participated in a major rescue of more than 140 at-risk dogs and cats who were airlifted to New Jersey from Louisiana. We are thrilled to report that the first three of the four dogs we have taken in from the rescue are now available for adoption at our shelter.

NBC, Greater Good Charities, The Animal Rescue Site, and Hill’s Pet Nutrition partnered to organize the transport. The airlift was part of Greater Good Charities’ Good Flights program.




DCSPCA joined with 8 other shelters to take in the animals who came from overcrowded shelters in Alabama and Louisiana. We took in a total of four dogs: Blue Eye, Roki, Chopper, and Bazooka.

They are all great-natured, friendly, happy dogs who are excited to put their paws down in their furever homes in the Northeast. Blue Eye, Roki, and Chopper are now available for adoption at DCSPCA. Submit an application online and note which dog you are interested in. A prescreened application is required in order to meet the dogs in person.


DCSPCA is open for adoptions Wednesday - Sunday: 12pm - 5pm.
