Founded in 1871, Dutchess County SPCA is one of the oldest SPCAs in the country.  It is a no-kill shelter, and the only animal welfare organization in Dutchess County chartered to enforce humane law.  Dutchess County SPCA is not a governmental agency, nor is it affiliated with the ASPCA.  It is an independent charity, funded almost entirely by private donations.

MEET BLITZEN! Blitzen is a dapper 7-year-old German Shepherd with a heart full of love. This charming boy found his way to DCSPCA’s shelter through no fault of his own and is searching for a human BFF he can shower with affection. He is a fan of tranquil nature walks, playing in the yard, and quiet time at home. There is nothing he loves more than spending time with his human companion. Are you the one he’s been searching for?
