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 Gomez the Great. Sweet 1-year-old Gomez was found tied to a tree and is a wiggly cutie pie who just wants to be loved. He adores affection and is an enthusiastic explorer. We think 53lb Gomez may have been deprived of affection in the past, so he is looking for an active home to teach him what having a loving forever family is like. We are recommending no children under the age of 12 but he has done well with other dogs in play groups here. A beautiful boy like this deserves to find a loving home! Apply to adopt GOMEZ:
