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:

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