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.

Who could resist this gorgeous gal? Gia has the cutest underbite ever and she’s looking for a home. Adopt her and you can behold her adorableness around the clock. But there’s so much more to Gia than her ridiculous cuteness. She is a 9-year-old bundle of joy who loves to play. Gia would do great in a home with a single adult or where any children are over 12 years old.
