Since the COVID-19 state of emergency, the Dutchess County SPCA adoption process has changed. The DCSPCA is currently open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Six year old Lucy is full of joy and happiness. She loves meeting people, wagging her tail so fast, you can barely see it. Lucy enjoys a good game of fetch, going for rides in the car and for runs and hikes. She is also a notorious snuggler, so once your fun is done, she will cuddle up on the couch and watch TV with you. She came to the shelter because her owners were moving and couldn’t take her with them.
Since the COVID-19 state of emergency, the Dutchess County SPCA adoption process has changed. The DCSPCA is currently open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. If you are interested in adopting Lucy, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at dcspca.org/adopt. After choosing a pet and submitting the online application, your application will be reviewed and an adoption counselor will contact you to make an appointment. Entry is limited to two people at a time, so there may be a wait to enter.
