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. 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

On November 16th have your pet’s photo taken with Santa ($20 per print).

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.

If you are interested in adopting Rumple, or any of our other available pets, 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.

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.

Hours of Operation: By appointment only

MARILYN

Marilyn is a Labrador Retriever / Anatolian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat)

Medium Adult Female (spayed)

Marilyn was adopted in 2017 and recently made her way back to the shelter, unfortunately. She’s a gorgeous girl, but is shy around strangers – so it takes a little time to get to know her. She is quite loyal and bonded once she finds her person, and so she will do well with a person who has large breed experience and is a strong pack leader. She’s a young girl with a lot of love left to give!
