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.

Midnight is a snortin’ happy 8-year-old American Bulldog mixed breed dog who is looking for a soft bed, a few stuffed toys, and some love and affection in his senior years. Midnight is a sweet, goofy 68 lb guy who was uprooted from the family he had always known. He’s known to be good with children, and loves to carry around a stuffy toy with him everywhere! Apply to adopt Midnight at our website:
