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.

Beautiful Frenchie is a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she’ll settle in for a cuddle and not want to leave! Get comfy on the couch, and this cutie will happily curl up in your lap and keep you company. The three most important attributes Frenchie is looking for in a human BFF are patience, compassion, and empathy.
