Let’s #MakeHomeHappen for Maya!

At 10 years old, Maya is a breast cancer survivor who continues to live her life with great joy. Wanna go for a walk? No problem. Wanna play in the yard? Let’s do it! What she really enjoys most of all is playing tug of war with her rope toys. She is also a great kisser who would like nothing more than to hang out with you.

Since the COVID-19 state of emergency, the DCSPCA adoption process has changed. If you are interested in adopting Maya, or any of our other available pets, please visit After choosing a pet and submitting the online application, call 845-452-7722, x-420 to make an appointment to meet the pet you want to adopt.
