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.

If you’re looking for an affectionate cuddler, Bodhi is your guy. He is a truly awesome cat with 14 years of wisdom. This adorable lovebug enjoys head boops and snuggles. Bodhi is declawed so will need to be either a single cat or with other cats that are very gentle. Will you grant him his holiday wish and make him a part of your forever family?
