Friends come in all shapes and sizes... So take a look at a few of our adoptable buddies who would like nothing better than to have their very own home!
To view all of our available dogs and cats, please visit our Petfinder page
by clicking on the button below.
The Hudson Valley SPCA is proud to be a NO KILL shelter! Some of our lucky residents will find new homes within a day or two of coming to us, while others might be with us for the rest of their lives. Regardless of the length of their stay, every animal that comes through our doors is given a second chance at a happy life!
Every animal we place:
has received a medical exam and any necessary treatments;
is up-to-date on all vaccinations;
has been spayed or neutered; and
has been loved and played with so they are ready to go home.
THE ADOPTION PROCESS
Interested in one of our adoptable cuties? Click on one of the buttons below to download an application. The information you give us will help our "matchmakers" identify the pet most suitable to your personality and lifestyle. Our goal is to ensure that we are placing pets in a healthy, sustainable environment and that both pet and adopting family is happy. Please note that reference and background checks will be conducted before an application can be approved.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are sending your application via email, please contact your vet (if applicable) and your references to to let them know we will be calling them and to give them permission to release information to us.
We do not charge a fee for our adoptions but we do ask for a donation of $300 for dogs and $150 for cats. That donation helps us cover vaccinations, spaying/neutering, heart worm treatment, supplemental foods, medications and other medical treatments the animals may need when they come into our care. We receive no funding from private or government agencies to financially support us. We totally depend on donations to pay our vet bills so that no animal is ever denied needed medical care.
If you would like to know the best way to introduce your new dog to your family, read our Bringing Your New Dog Home page. And if that new pet is a kitty, make sure you give the Bringing Your New Cat Home page. If you have any questions prior to adoption, during the adoption process or after, we are always here to help you and your pet have a wonderful life together.
