Let’s Make Home Happen for Heff!

Heff is a 4-year old hunk who loves the ladies. He longs for an all female home without cats.  He will be your best buddy, your co-pilot and your wingman.   He is the peanut butter to your jelly; the ramalamala to your ka dinga-da-dinga-dong.

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, Monday through Sunday with extended hours on Friday until 7pm. Please check out the Dutchess County SPCA website to see all of the currently available pets: and the Facebook page for upcoming events.
