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.

Tortilla is a delightful cat who is just like a burrito, filled with all kinds of goodness. She’s a friendly and chatty kitty who loves to greet her human friends every morning during breakfast time.

Tortilla is a big-time talker and enjoys having a little hangout and chat with her human companions. She loves to play, especially with cat wands! (However, cat treats are the surest way to her heart.)

It’s worth noting that any children in Tortilla’s future home should be over 12 years old. If you’re looking for a loving and playful feline companion who will brighten up your days with her energy and enthusiasm, Tortilla might just be the perfect fit for you.
