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.

This sweet, low-maintenance 11-year-old boy is an oldie but goodie who has been bounced around quite a bit and deserves to catch a break. A lovable goofball who is always up for a game of fetch, he’s still pretty spunky for his age but would be an easygoing companion. He is a fun and playful 62lb guy who will bring joy to your heart.
