Hurricane Irma Cats Arrive at DCSPCA Nov. 14


HYDE PARK – The Dutchess County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DCSPCA) has announced the transport of 44 cats from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.

The veterinary students took in over 50 cats and kittens throughout the hurricane Irma efforts providing shelter and medical care.

The students worked tirelessly helping sick animals being evacuated from hurricane-affected states.

The good news is they have nursed them back to health, completely vetted them and the time has come for them to be transported to the DSCPCA in hope to find their forever homes.

“We feel fortunate at the DCSPCA that while we are still taking in and caring for as many local cats and kittens as our intake facility can humanely house, we know we can count on our adopters and donors to join us as we welcome these cats and kittens in to our community.  A quick stop at the shelter then off to their new homes!” Wayne Mabey, Interim Executive Director, said.

Can’t adopt but still want to help the DCSPCA help cats and kittens?

They are partnering with the ASPCA shelter outreach, Animal Relocation Initiative to help these kitties.

Arrival of these furry friends is expected on Tuesday, Nov. 14 in the early evening.
