Dutchess County SPCA Saves Dozens of Dogs

On Thursday, January 11th, 2024 the Dutchess County SPCA shared that they were on the scene of a hoarding rescue in Dutchess County.

In a statement posted on social media the DCSPCA explained they were on the scene and assisting with a "hoarding situation involving estimated dozens of Great Dane dogs."

They go on to add:
We are working with other organizations to rescue and house the dogs-- some of them have just arrived at DCSPCA's shelter.
Once the dogs settle in, the DCSPCA veterinary team will do an initial medical assessment. For now, our team on the scene has reported that some dogs appear to be emaciated and highly under-socialized.

Here's where you come in.  The Dutchess County SPCA has created a page for the Great Dane Hoarding Rescue where guests can donate to the cause. All donations will go directly to the care of the Great Danes and to "ensure that DCSPCA can be there for animals like them."

You can make your donation on The Great Dane Hoarding Rescue page.
