The Great Give Back to Benefit DCSPCA
October 18 – November 12

This year, the Library District has partnered with DCSPCA as part of the annual Great Give Back (a state-wide public library event) to collect much-needed food and supplies for the animals in their care. Donation bins will be available at both library locations during library hours.

Did you know that the DCSPCA:

  • Is not affiliated with ASPCA and is its own independent nonprofit.
  • Relies solely on donations from the community.
  • Is a no-kill shelter, meaning they will never euthanize an animal due to lack of space.
  • Is the only shelter in Dutchess County chartered to enforce the Humane Law.
  • Works with Grace Smith House to help the pets of victims of domestic violence.
