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.

Introducing Evie, an elegant 8-year-old black cat eagerly seeking her loving new family.

Each morning, she enjoys warmly greeting her human companions and would relish the opportunity to cuddle up on a cozy cat bed to watch TV with her new BFF. While Evie adores affection, she also values her personal space and appreciates those who respect her boundaries. Do you have what it takes to offer this regal lady the royal treatment she deserves in a loving dream home?
