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:
