Let’s Make Home Happen for Baby and Pup-Pup!

If you are looking for two pets who bring a lot of love and happiness into your life, come meet Baby and Pup-Pup.  Baby, who is 2 years old and Pup-Pup, 5, were surrendered together.  Baby is super sweet, wiggly and playful and loves other dogs. Pup-Pup is unicorns, rainbows, puppies and kittens-all things that bring great joy and happiness with a great smile!  They love to go out and about together, and enjoy hitting the rail trail or the walkway!  These two are best friends and would like to be adopted together.
If you are interested in adopting Baby and Pup-Pup, or any other available pet, visit the Dutchess County SPCA at 636 Violet Avenue in Hyde Park. Adoption hours are 12pm to 5pm, Tuesday through Sunday with extended hours on Thursday until 7pm. Please check out the Dutchess County SPCA website to see all of the currently available pets: and the Facebook page for upcoming events.
