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?

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

Founded in 1871, Dutchess County SPCA is celebrating 150 years of helping the animals of our region.
