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.

Rocky is an affectionate and happy cat who loves everyone.  He will curl up around your legs and sleep next to you on the pillow. Rocky has a neurological condition that affects his mobility sometimes, so he would need regular monitoring by a vet to make sure his condition is properly managed. He is the perfect housecat and is just looking for the special someone who can give him that extra bit of care that he needs.
