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.

Molly is a friendly and extremely glamorous Ragdoll cat who came to us when her owner surrendered her. At only 6lbs and 17 years old, she is a sweet and petite senior. Molly loves to be petted, but is a bit apprehensive about being handled, so she is hoping for a furever home where any children are over 5 years old. It can be hard for a senior to find a home, even one who is a purebred Ragdoll. Will you be the one to give Molly a loving home in her golden years?
