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.

Aged to perfection, this older gentleman is a big fan of the great outdoors, but also appreciates the coziness of home. He would love to be by your side on a hike, or curled up on the couch with you for a Netflix binge. Diesel needs to be the only animal in the home but he adores people and is looking forward to finding his new family.
