Let’s Make Home Happen for Zoot!

You will be the envy of everyone at the dog park!  This five-year old, mixed breed male is everything anyone could ever want in a dog.  He likes everyone: cats, dogs and humans.  He is handsome with a sweet, laid back personality.  He loves to play and go for walks, but he’s happy to spend an afternoon on the couch with you watching movies. Zoot is looking for a family who will include him in their activities and shower him with love and affection.

If you are interested in adopting Zoot, 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.
