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.

Introducing cuddly and loving Nina, a young girl who has had a tough life filled with neglect, causing her to look older than her years. She arrived at the shelter severely underweight but has since regained her health and is ready to embark on a new chapter in her life.

Nina is a playful pup who loves nothing more than a good game of tug and a collection of stuffed toys to snuggle up with. She is the perfect Netflix binge buddy and is eager to find a loving home where she can live her best life.

If you’re looking for an easy-going furry companion who’s eager to please, Nina is the one for you. Give her the chance to feel loved and cherished, and she’ll reward you with a lifetime of loyalty and affection.
