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.

Meet Evie! She’s an eight-year-old stunning beauty whose regal presence is felt throughout Dutchess County SPCA’s Cat Land. Her favorite pastime is perching high and calmly keeping watch of her royal subjects. Each morning, Evie enjoys warmly greeting her human companions and would relish the opportunity to cuddle up on a cozy cat bed to watch TV in her dream home. While Evie adores affection, she also values her personal space and appreciates those who respect her boundaries. Something we can all relate to! Do you have what it takes to offer this majestic lady the royal treatment she deserves?
