Captain is our 11 year old senior, long haired neutered male. He is sensitive to change and will need a home that is patient and will let him adjust at his own pace.

Dolly

Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat)
Adult Female (spayed)

We’re not shocked that Dolly got the name Dolly – as she really is a Doll.  She’s a rock star here in the kennel environment, loves to cuddle with staff, and passed her behavior evaluation with flying colors.  She is social, sweet, and outgoing.  It might take her a moment to warm up, but once she does she’s going to grab your heart and run away with it.  Dolly will do best in a home as an only dog because she prefers that one on one attention from her people. She is going to make some lucky family complete.

Arizona

Arizona is a shy, sweet 1-year old southern belle whose favorite song is “I Will Survive.” She may be small, but she is mighty, having lived through a hurricane and being put on a euthanize list.  After her long trip north, she is ready for her forever family who will provide her with stability, love and affection. She likes other dogs, but has not been cat tested yet. Her perfect home would be quiet, maybe with another sweet dog for a sibling.

Geeta

Geeta is a senior tortie cat who was found as a stray in need of some TLC. She is wary with people; she does not like to be handled and will yowl to let you know when to back off.

Sweet Lulu came to the DCSPCA after her owner passed away.  She loves everyone and would be the perfect cuddling companion as the days become cooler and autumn takes its hold on the Hudson Valley. Lulu is a good friend and an even better listener who will sit attentively as you tell her what’s on your mind.  When you are done, she will reward you with cozy purrs and head bumps. At just 3 years old, she has all of her life with you ahead of her. She is a beautiful Tuxedo cat with a cool crinkled left ear.

Stormtrooper

Stormtrooper is a one-year-old cat with a beautiful, pure white coat. Though she has been liberated from the Empire, she still suspects that everyone around her could be a Rebel. Because of this, she is not tolerant of other cats or young children, and certainly not of dogs. Stormtrooper is shy around new people, but we think with gentle socialization she could come out of her shell. She is aiming for a home with someone who will be patient enough to earn her trust and let her get comfortable in her own time.

Friendly and Baxter

Friendly and Baxter are dear old friends who’ve been together since Friendly was born. They are believed to be brothers from two different litters with the same parents and are a bonded pair.  Their human mom passed away recently and they now find themselves without the safety and security of their home.  Friendly is 10 yrs old and Baxter is 12. Both are FIV positive. Their lives are well documented as they came with a letter, photos of their life together and very extensive owner surrender forms.  They were obviously very loved by their person who brought them from Virginia when she moved to New York years ago.
Please consider giving these two mellow southern gentleman a loving home. They share a lot of tender little moments like head nuzzles every day, which is sweet to watch.  They both enjoy affection and being brushed. Friendly is very excited about breakfast everyday, and will patiently make ‘biscuits’ while he waits. They both have beautiful purrs.  They would do best in a home without other cats. Baxter is okay with making new friends but Friendly is just not interested in sharing his best buddy right now.

Since the COVID-19 state of emergency, the DCSPCA adoption process has changed. If you are interested in adopting Friendly and Baxter, or any of our other available pets, please visit www.dcspca.org.  After choosing a pet and submitting the online application, we’ll review the application then contact you to make an appointment to meet the pet you want to adopt.

Zion

Zion is a happy mix of youth, joy and exuberance. At just two years of age, he has yet to find a toy that he doesn’t like to play with – squeeky, plush, tug toy, frisbee or ball! He likes everyone and gets very excited to meet new friends. His arch enemy is ‘The Vacuum,’ a loud-mouthed monster who doesn’t like toys,  mangling them as it runs them over. Zion hopes to find an active family with no small children to knock over. He would like to go hiking and adventuring, play in the yard, go to the park and explore the wonderful world and all it has to offer.

Let’s Make Home Happen for Coral!

Coral is a special needs kitty cat. She especially needs someone who wants a lot of love and affection because Coral is a serious lap cat. She loves her people and wants to be near them at all times. If you stop petting her, she will gently reach out for your hand as if to say, “wait, I was really enjoying that, please continue!” She will reward you with affection and the most enthusiastic purring. Coral does have special needs, she gets fluids for kidney disease three times per week, but is very good about the process. At 9 years old, Coral would do well in a quiet home with or without other low energy pets. If you foster Coral, the DCSPCA provides the equipment needed to administer her treatment. Their veterinarian will also instruct you on the procedure of administering fluids.

Finn

This but pit bull mix was found alone, tied to a parking meter, and painfully gaunt. But that was then. Today, thanks to plenty of caring and kibble, this waif has blossomed into a filled-out, rambunctious, happy, and muscular hunk. Our veterinarian esmates he’s around 8 years old. If so, Finn is the youngest 8-year-old you will ever meet, almost as if he’s forgiven the neglect of the last 8 years and decided to start over as a puppy. Finn was recently neutered, which will make him more able to focus on the leash training and basic commands this assertive boy needs.

Let’s Make Home Happen for Carrie!

Carrie is a sweet 9-year old who has cornered the market on cuddling. She hasn’t met a squeaky toy she doesn’t like and enjoys sunbathing. She wants to be the only four legged friend in your world to make sure that she is the center of attention. Carrie walks very well on a leash and her favorite thing about going for walks is seeing all the people and getting some love from each one of them! She’s a bit of a social butterfly. She is hoping to find a family who will lavish her with love and let her spoil them with kisses. Carrie would do well in a home without stairs, which are a bit of a challenge for her.

During the COVID-19 state of emergency, the DCSPCA adoption process has changed.

Mittens

Mittens came to us on September 15th pregnant, and on September 21st had her babies while in one of our amazing foster homes. She was a great momma to her babies, and she’s been such a sweet girl from day one. We believe that Mittens was a “throw away” from someone that might have been moving, and found herself living in the streets – hungry and pregnant. She acclimated quickly to both shelter and foster life, and she’s very affectionate and sweet. She does not seem to be a fan of other cats at this time, so we believe that she will do best in a home where she’s the only feline resident. She’s been through a lot in just under two years, and we know that she will be forever grateful and so happy to finally find her people to spend her life with!

If you are interested in adopting Toby, or any of our other available pets, please visit the Dutchess County SPCA at 636 Violet Avenue in Hyde Park. Adoption hours are 12pm to 5pm, Tuesday through Sunday with extended hours on Thursday until 7pm. You can see videos of currently available pets on the DCSPCA Facebook page at facebook.com/dcspca

Eclipse

In August of 2017 Eclipse found herself with the A.C.C. in N.Y.C. as a stray, and was pulled by a rescue from Long Island that adopted her out. By July of 2019 when we were called in to help with a hoarding situation we found Eclipse locked in a carrier with her 5 small babies and terrified. When she originally went to the A.C.C. she was not at all feral, but by the time we got to her in July of this year, well, her of trust for human beings had run dry. Over the past six months we’ve allowed Eclipse to hide, explore, and to realize that she would never be locked in a dark space again. We’ve given her time to see that she will ALWAYS eat, and that she will be safe. We are happy to say that progress has been made – and we actually are able to SEE her now – she’s no longer hiding under her bed and hissing and growling. She kind of hangs out, watches us, very much appreciates a treat, and is ALWAYS on time for her meals. Eclipse has begun to come out and explore, the cat room and on 12/19/19 she actually ran to the door on her condo to be let out.

Eclipse is going to need a SUPER special home. A home where it’s understood that it could take months or even years before you will be able to pet her. A quiet home where noise and commotion are at a bare minimum, and where she will have plenty of spaces to hide. A home with both cattitude and terrified cat experience will be best for her, and given all she’s been through we would like Eclipse to go to a home where she might have one “docile/calm and confident” cat friend. She deserves to know a life of safety, comfort and luxury – and we won’t stop until we’ve found the purrrrrffeccttt forever person (or couple) for her.

Let’s Make Home Happen for Daisy!

Daisy is an 8-year old love bug who was brought in as a stray to the DCSPCA, but when the owner was located, they said they didn’t want her anymore. She loves people.  If you like to cuddle, Daisy is your dog!  She is indifferent to other animals because she is so focused on humans.  She would be fine in a home with other pets, but she isn’t interested in them, she is all about the people. She does have separation anxiety, so her adopter should either be a stay at home person or be able to take Daisy with them wherever they go.

Daisy would be a perfect candidate for the Pets4Vets program, which provides companion animals from the Dutchess County SPCA for veterans of the US military.  Once a veteran qualifies for pet adoption, the adoption fee is waived, they are provided with one year of free wellness check visits in our clinic, receive a pet starter packet of food, dishes, toys, leash, collar and bed, and if they adopt a dog, they receive 6 weeks of free obedience training with DCSPCA staff.

If you are interested in adopting Daisy, or any other available pet, visit the Dutchess County SPCA at 636 Violet Avenue in Hyde Park. Adoption hours are 12pm to 5pm, Tuesday through Sunday with extended hours on Thursday until 7pm. You can see all of the currently available pets on the DCSPCA website: www.dcspca.org

Let’s Make Home Happen for Heff!

Heff is a large 4.5 year old dog who was left at the DCSPCA when his owner moved. He is very smart and sweet, but takes his time getting to know new people. Once he gets to know you, he’ll be your best buddy, your wingman, your co-pilot. Heff is a big hunk and the ladies love him!  He’s had two girlfriends at the shelter. They were good friends who loved to play together, but the girls both got adopted. Heff would love to find his forever home with a mature family who loves him.

If you are interested in adopting Heff, or any other available pet, visit the Dutchess County SPCA at 636 Violet Avenue in Hyde Park.

BUTTONS

Buttons came to us as a stray, and she took quite a while to come out of her shell as she seemed to be semi-feral at the least. Luckily we have some very dedicated volunteers who have spent countless hours with her, reading to her, ignoring her, showing her that people are not a “bad thing”. She still has a way to go, and will likely always be a “cat’s kind of cat”. Buttons is unlikely to ever be a snuggly lap cat, we feel that she will do well in a quiet home where she will be allowed to just cat. A person or persons who can appreciate the aloofness of a beautiful cat will be a purrrfffecccttt fit for beautiful Buttons.

Let’s Make Home Happen for Rumple!

Meet Rumple!  His owners moved and didn’t take him with them. They did say he was a very good guard dog, alerting his owners when strangers or birds were in the yard. At eight years old, he still likes to play a little, walk a little and eat A LOT! In fact, he’s a notorious counter shark, absconding with any unattended goodies.

ORGANIZATION

Everlasting Hope Animal Rescue and Advocacy is a 501c3 rescue group run solely by volunteers dedicated to not only saving animals’ lives, but also raising awareness of the huge over-population of unwanted pets. We also educate about the diseases certain pets are prone to and preventative treatment and maintenance, such as Heartworm and Lyme Disease. We don’t adopt on a first-come first-served basis, but explore every application received. We check three references, and contact the adopter’s veterinarian to verify that current and/or past pets are kept up to date on vaccines and are spayed/neutered. We require that adopters with dogs bring them for a meet and greet with our rescue dog. We are made up of a small group of pet-loving and owning people who in the past lost that one special pet that touched our hearts deeply and can never be replaced. With every animal we adopt, we try very hard to match the right pet with the right forever home. We want our adopters to find that wonderful, special companion in one of our rescue animals that we have been blessed to find in our lives. We specialize in dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, Guinea pigs, rabbits, and other small animals.
