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.

Meet Scotty! Scotty is a handsome 9-year-old 58lb boy. A super senior, Scotty still loves a good game of fetch or some time playing tug. He is the perfect companion for a lovely hike in the snow.

Scotty’s dream home has a nice yard where he can play with tennis balls. He is looking forward to finding a patient person who will make him feel safe. Will you be the one to bring him home for the holidays?
