Let’s Make Home Happen for Toby!

Let’s Make Home Happen for Toby!
If you look up cuddly in a dictionary, Toby’s photo is posted as an example. He is very snuggly and loving. He would be content to sit on your lap or next to you for hours and hours.
Due to a congenital defect, Toby is blind, but he can get around okay once he knows his surroundings. He lived with another cat named Timmy who is also at the DCSPCA.
If you are interested in adopting Toby, or any of our other available pets, please 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
