In 1955 Ella Merle and her daughter Dede Kline rose to an auspicious challenge of helping animals who had fallen through the cracks of society in Columbia County. Through their dedication and exhaustive efforts, one small building with five dog kennels has today become a multi-faceted animal welfare organization holding up to sixty dogs and one hundred cats.

Over the last six decades CGHS/SPCA has expanded its services in the community to include low-cost veterinary services (serving more than two thousand animals each year); a food bank (providing 25,000 pounds of free food annually to families in need); stray dog housing, assisting law enforcement with cruelty cases; community outreach; and humane education.

Roxy

Meet Roxy! This spunky girl is a 2 year old Basenji mix, and she’s called CGHS her home for over a year. She unfortunately cannot live with other animals, but she has endless love to give. She’s easily excitable, so older kids are best for her. Roxy would make the perfect hiking/jogging companion, as it takes a lot to get this girl tired out. She’s fully crate trained and house broken.

Big Wallace

Big Wallace is a regal 10-year-old cat who came to us as a stray. He is a chatty guy who will bring a smile to your face with his sweet soundings. He also loves belly rubs! Big Wallace is looking for someone he can curl up in bed with and wake up with sweet kitty kisses. He is considered special needs because he is FIV positive. FIV is a chronic condition that depresses the immune system.  Big Wallace can live a long, happy life, but he should be monitored to avoid getting infections. He can live with other cats that don’t have FIV. It is transmissible but only through a deep bite–and Big Wallace is not the biting kind. It is safe for him to share water bowls or to lick another cat.

He was found as a stray, very skinny and with some age-related conditions (gingivitis, signs of early renal disease), but has been recovering well while he’s been with us.  He is still pretty skinny so is looking for a family that is not stingy with the food and treats!  He is mostly a domestic short hair but his head and body shape suggest some Siamese or Abyssinian.  And those ears!  If you would like a distinctive-looking cat that is as sweet as candy, Cadbury is your guy!

If you are interested in adopting Cadbury, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at www.dcspca.org. To meet one of our pets, you must have an approved adoption application on file. Those with approved applications can visit the shelter Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm to 5pm.

Mickey

Mickey is a 3-year-old mixed breed.  He does not realize he weighs 70 pounds and will try to sit in your lap or pull you along while walking.  He is very affectionate and people-oriented.  Mickey has worked hard on his manners while he’s been at the shelter and now knows his basic commands.  Due to a traumatic event in his past, Mickey is fearful of other animals and can’t tolerate them in his presence, so he has asked to be placed in a home where he is the only pet. Due to his size and how he loves to lean into people, we recommend a home with no small children. Mickey loves toys and his favorite game is fetch.

If you are interested in adopting Mickey, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at www.dcspca.org. To meet one of our pets, you must have an approved adoption application on file. Those with approved applications can visit the shelter Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm to 5pm.

Kitty

Could there be a more beautiful cat than Kitty?  She’s a 15 year old tortoiseshell cat who sadly spent most of her life in a basement.  It’s not surprising that Kitty loves to lay in the sunlight which she did not see for years, and she loves attention.  Kitty also gets along with other cats!  Because Kitty is a senior and did not have the best care, she may have age-related conditions down the road. She might have the beginnings of some kidney issues but for now she is on a regular diet and requires no medication.  Won’t you share your home with Kitty and make her golden years full of love and light?

Charlie

If you are looking for an older dog who’s a pup at heart, look no further.  Charlie is an 8 year old, 68 lb love bug.  He is house trained and knows basic commands like sit, stay, and paw.  He loves toys and he loves to dig, so rather than putting him in a fenced yard with your begonias, he would be happier going on long walks–he does very well on the leash. A canine of refined taste, Charlie is picky about the dogs he likes, but he loves all humans.  Because he’s an older gent, Charlie is showing some kidney and thyroid issues, so we recommend he get regular vet visits to monitor him and be kept on a special diet.  Charlie is a great dog, and he’s ready to be a grateful and faithful companion to you!

If you are interested in adopting Charlie, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at www.dcspca.org.

Feather

Beautiful Feather is a 14 year old, petite cat who is as sweet as can be.  She was given up by an elderly owner who could no longer care for her.  Feather is very social and she loves both people and other cats.  She has a thyroid condition that requires her to take pills, but she has no problem taking them because she loves the extra attention she gets. Feather has asked for a quieter home where she can attach herself to one or two people and maybe another cat or two.  And attach herself she will–she will be your complete cuddle-bug!

Sherman

Dubbed “the little hippo,” Sherman is a 9 year old, 68 pound mixed breed who loves to sit outdoors and watch cars, play with toys, and sit in your lap and give you kisses. Sherman was found as a stray. He had a microchip but no one ever showed up to claim him. At first he was very scared of everything and everyone, but during the year he has been with us he turned into a happy fellow and now loves his walks and meeting new people. He takes fish oil to help with his dry skin. He seems to like other dogs but a meet would have to be arranged before he could go to a home with another dog. Sherman has a unique and adorable personality, and he has been waiting for his forever family way too long!

Hugh

Sometimes older cats get overlooked, but they can make the best pets!  Hugh came to us as a stray but he was definitely someone’s house cat once.  He is estimated to be around 12 years old and weighs 10 pounds.  He loves everyone and has perfect manners.  His favorite activities are laying in the sunshine and snuggling.  He is so attached to humans that he would prefer not to have other pets around, but he is also the kind of cat who is fine when left to his own amusements.  Hugh’s blood test shows signs of kidney disease like many older cats, but at this time his condition can be managed with diet and he isn’t showing any symptoms.  Hugh has a big personality and he loves to talk–he will run to the door to greet you when you come home and will want to know all about your day.

Athena

Athena is happiness and joy wrapped up in a 52 pound brindle-coloured package.  Her pet foster parent describes his 7-year old charge as “the perfect dog.” She is housetrained, walks nicely on leash, and does not chase after the local squirrels.  She loves meeting the neighbors; to Athena, everyone is a new found friend.  She shows proper etiquette at her dinner bowl and is very gentle when taking treats.  She enjoys rides in the car and running errands with her people. Athena can be shy with other dogs who are too pushy, but she does enjoy being with other laid back dogs. Athena would be a perfect dog for a first time dog owner or someone who prefers a dog that is already trained. She is a great great friend and companion, ready with a smile and a full-body tail wag.

MacArthur

Greetings friends, I am MacArthur, the senior CFO (Chief Feline Officer) at the Dutchess County SPCA. I am quite the character, with a commanding presence, which is why I am in charge here. The staff know when I have been checking on them by the paw prints I leave on their desks, chairs, and keyboards. You will often find me in the marketing director’s office, helping keep her coat warm by sleeping in it. Sometimes I wrap the sleeve around me and pretend I am snuggling with my new owner. Other times, I climb into the marketing lady’s messenger bag, hoping she doesn’t notice and takes me home with her.  She has cats and a dog, and that is not my ideal.  I do not want to compete for your attention. I will be all you need, the best companion, a great listener and your best friend.

If you are interested in adopting me, MacArthur, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at www.dcspca.org. We are now open Wednesday through Sunday, 12pm – 5pm. Complete the adoption application before your visit in order to meet the pets you are interested in adopting.

Charlie

Charlie is adorable and for the most part is a sweet, loving dog who likes other dogs and cats. Ideally, he would live with an adult or mature couple who have experience with dogs with resource guarding behaviors. Charlie lived in a home with children and a large dog. Both the children and the other dog would take all of Charlie’s toys and food, which taught Charlie to try and fiercely guard his possessions. Dogs guarding their possessions is a normal behavior, but because Charlie was being bullied, he took it to the next level.

His adoptive family will know not to leave items lying around, but if they accidentally do, they will know not to try and take them away from Charlie if he has claimed them. They will have to wait until he abandons them and then they can pick them up.  This will set Charlie and his new family up for success. Charlie’s adopters will consult with our dog behaviorist to learn how best to help him. His behavior isn’t something that can be loved out of him or forced out of him, but if managed properly, he will be the perfect canine companion.

If you are interested in adopting Charlie, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at www.dcspca.org. To meet one of our pets, you must have an approved adoption application on file. Those with approved applications can visit the shelter Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm to 4pm. Check the website to make sure the pet you want to meet is in the shelter and not in foster.

“I am considered special needs due to being diagnosed with chronic renal disease and my spinal deformity. Right now I don’t need any special medication for my kidneys, but may require it in the future as well as a prescription diet.

Ridley

Ridley is a SuperBunny, able to leap 5-foot high enclosures with a single bound. She may seem feisty at first, but she gives in really quick and loves affection and attention. She is litter box trained and also hops on a leash, enjoying time outside of her crate. And if that isn’t enough, she is an absolute beauty! A healthy eater, Ridley’s daily snack consists of a variety of treats ranging from apples to kale & celery, to carrots, and occasionally cilantro, parsley or spinach.

The Dutchess

When you meet The Dutchess, you will notice right away that she is magical. Her musical purr lets you know how much she enjoys being petted and loved. She has cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition which makes her a bit wobbly, but it doesn’t affect her living her best life. She enjoys sunbathing, snuggling, face rubs and chin scritches. And if you want to have a chat over tea and biscuits, The Dutchess is an attentive listener and gives great advice, which usually includes cuddling with her.

Jax

At 11 months old, Jax is the complete package! He has a joyful personality and will love whatever you want to do — a walk, a hike, a ride in the car, a game of catch, let’s go!!!  He’s very smart and a quick learner and like all puppies, will need structure, consistent training and plenty of exercise.
Jax weighs 70 pounds and will get a bit bigger before he’s done growing. While he wants to be a friend to everyone, his clumsy puppy exuberance would be best with children that are 11+ years old. Jax will be an awesome family dog or a single person’s BFF!
If you are interested in adopting Jax, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at www.dcspca.org. We are now open for walk-in hours on Wednesday through Sunday, 12pm – 4pm. Check the website to make sure the pet you want to meet is in the shelter and not in foster. To meet a pet in foster care, you must complete the adoption application and make an appointment.

Daphne, Bella, Miles and Sarge

Currently the Dutchess County SPCA has many sweet senior pets who are often overlooked because of their age.
Pictured above from bottom left to bottom right are Daphne, Bella, Miles and Sarge
There are many reasons why a senior dog can end up at a shelter. Most times, it is through no fault of their own. Many of them were once owned and cherished, and they would love nothing more than to experience that feeling again. Senior dogs are often passed over by potential adopters for puppies or younger dogs. Here are some reasons why a senior dog would make just as great a companion as a younger dog:
1. Most are very loyal and appreciative. They know when they have been saved, and they will be eternally grateful that you gave them a chance.
2. Senior dogs are usually very mellow and laid-back. If you are a couch potato and are looking for a cuddle buddy, they would be very happy to oblige!
3. Most senior dogs already have basic training and are already potty-trained. This takes away the stress of having to go through several hours of training and housebreaking. However, an old dog can still learn new tricks!
4. On average, dogs can live for 10 to 15 years. Don’t pass up on a dog just because they are a little older, as you may still have many years of unconditional love still ahead!
5. Lastly, senior dogs have already completely developed their personalities and are fully grown. Therefore, you know exactly what you are getting into!

Winnie

Winnie is a sweet, six year old, brown-eyed girl. She is continually overlooked at the shelter because she is a simple dog with simple tastes. Winnie has social anxiety and can be overwhelmed by the outside world. She would prefer to be a homebody, living with one or two adults in a quiet environment. She doesn’t want to go to the dog park or hang out with friends. She enjoys a peaceful walk where together, you can enjoy the trills of song birds and the beauty of nature. She will happily cuddle on the couch, or sunbathe on the porch with you. She will be a loving and faithful companion.
If you are interested in adopting Winnie, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at www.dcspca.org. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the DCSPCA adoption process has changed. You should look at the website first to see if there are any pets you are interested in meeting.  After choosing a pet, complete the online application and submit it for review. If approved, you and your family will be invited to make an appointment to meet the pet to see if you’re a good fit for each other. We are now open for walk-in hours on Saturday and Sunday, 12pm – 4pm. Check the website to make sure the pet you want to meet is in the shelter and not in foster.

Added is a cartoon that one of our resident artists did of her. We love Winnie, it breaks our hearts that we haven’t found her forever home yet.

Piper

Pretty Piper first came to us about 3 years ago with her siblings after their mother rejected them. She was adopted out as a puppy, but recently returned due to her and the other dog in the home not getting along – for this reason she will need to be the only dog/pet. Piper has adjusted surprisingly well here even after all of that time living in a home! She loves her people so much and is always excited to meet new human friends too. She is a goofy, affectionate girl who loves to snuggle up with her people, give kisses, play fetch and go for car rides. Piper cannot wait to find her forever family & home!

Please note that we are often asked if dogs are “house trained”.  The dogs are in fact living in a kennel environment during their time with us.  Even if they have previously lived in a home and been trained – the stress of the change and the new home can sometimes cause regression and require some additional training.  We feel that it’s best for all adopters to be prepared for this possibility.

Visit our adoption page for details about our process, and to fill out an adoption application.  All animals come spayed/neutered, UTD on vaccines, and micro-chipped.  If the animals age or health prevents any of these from being completed prior to adoption a voucher is issued for the services to be performed.  If you have any questions about the animal, or our adoption process, please email adopt@littleguild.org.  The Little Guild is a 501c(3) federally recognized non-profit organization devoted to saving the lives of homeless pets.

Pearl

Pearl is a beautiful white 9-month old New Zealand rabbit who absolutely adores people. Whenever someone approaches her cage, she gets very excited and literally jumps for joy. She would love hopping around your house (she can be litter trained) and cuddling with you on the couch. A notoriously healthy snacker, she enjoys nibbling on apple slices and greens.

Faith

I am Faith and I am seven years old.  I love to snuggle, cuddle and kiss, as well as give head bumps and face rubs.  I have a really good purr which will make you feel warm and happy when you hear it.  I have lived with dogs, children and other cats; although I wouldn’t mind if I was the only cat you have, as I am a princess and would like to keep all of your cuddles for myself.

Wobble

Wobble is a 5 month old, spayed Bombay.

Wobble was born with cerebellar hypoplasia. She would require a home that could keep her in a confined, padded space, where her litter box could be kept close by while unsupervised.
She is a very playful girl, who is learning how to walk on her back legs as best as she knows how. She does get tired quickly, but with regular exercise this may get better. She has already come a long way, and is very resilient.

For more information on Wobble, call AWS at 860-354-1350 email animalwelfare.socty@snet.net or visit our website aws-shelter.org for an application

Nitro

Nitro is an awesome, all-around family dog.  He has lived with cats, a small dog and kids.  He is active and joyful and very loving.  Although  medium sized, Nitro believes he is a lap dog, so be prepared to watch TV with a 45-pound goofy (and sometimes snoring) canine across your lap. If you are looking for happiness, Nitro will provide it by the bucket load!
