Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a veterinary clinic located in Wappingers Falls, NY in Dutchess County. We serve as a municipal shelter for 2 towns in our areas.

Come Meet our Pets:

You can of course call to make an appointment to come meet the dogs or a particular dog that you see we have that tickles your fancy.

Our Adoption Process:

The process is if dog control picks up a dog running loose then we take care of that doggie until hopefully an owner comes to save him. However, if after 7 days, an owner does not come forward, then we rehome the dogs. The adoption fee is either $75 or $125 depending on the municipality the dog was found in. If the dog is not spayed/neutered, we do have a spay/neuter contract that says within 1 month of adoption, the dog will be fixed.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
