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.

You couldn’t ask for a more affectionate, cuddly cat than Dandelion. This 1-year-old super-sweetheart is friendly to both humans (including children) and other cats. Her distinctive markings give her an especially wonderful expression! She would be so happy to find her FURever family this holiday season. Apply to adopt DANDELION:
