Founded in 1871, Dutchess County SPCA is one of the oldest SPCAs in the country.  It is a no-kill shelter, and the only animal welfare organization in Dutchess County chartered to enforce humane law.  Dutchess County SPCA is not a governmental agency, nor is it affiliated with the ASPCA.  It is an independent charity, funded almost entirely by private donations.

Fun and friendly, 3-year-old Luna is a goofy gal who loves to play and cuddle. This Beagle beauty came to us as a surrender and is hoping to go to her forever home soon. Luna especially enjoys human company and doesn’t like being left alone for too long. Since she is a Beagle, she  has a fantastic sense of smell. You’ll want to be sure to always keep her on a leash during walks, in case she wants to take off in pursuit of a scent!
