Let’s Make Home Happen for Stewart!

Stewart is a 10 year old chihuahua mix.  Despite being blind and deaf, he is quite brave and independent.  He was abandoned near a Stewarts Shop and by some miracle, found fairly quickly before he could be injured.  Stewart is looking for a quiet home with a patient and loving family who will take him for (slow) walks.  He loves to explore and enjoys going outside.

If you are interested in adopting Stewart, 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. You can see videos of currently available pets on the DCSPCA Facebook page at or at:
