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.

Is there a sweeter dog than Chaz? Chaz is an 8-year-old Beagle boy who loves people and other dogs. He’s a wise older gentleman so would do well in a quieter home and with other small dogs. If you are looking for a loyal companion to watch Netflix with or go on easy walks, he’s the guy for you. He is housetrained and would do well with children of all ages. In other words, he’s the perfect family dog! Who will be the lucky one to take home Chaz?
