Let’s Make Home Happen for Rumple!

Meet Rumple!  His owners moved and didn’t take him with them. They did say he was a very good guard dog, alerting his owners when strangers or birds were in the yard. At eight years old, he still likes to play a little, walk a little and eat A LOT! In fact, he’s a notorious counter shark, absconding with any unattended goodies.

If you are interested in adopting Rumple, or any of our other available pets, 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 videos of currently available pets on the DCSPCA Facebook page at
