The Hudson Valley SPCA is a unique shelter. Not only do we provide the only NO KILL facility in the Newburgh, New York area, but we are also the only source of Humane Law Enforcement in Orange County. Our dedicated staff and team of volunteers protect and defend animals and actively seek loving homes for each and every one of them – homes where they will be cared for and loved for the rest of their lives.
Lead the fight against animal abuse
Find forever homes for every animal
Love and care for them until they go home
While we welcome your inquiries about individual pets from PetFinder, we would suggest that you come and visit our animals in person and speak with staff who care for them. Either an application for a dog or cat must be made before we can adopt a pet out. Applications include your information, personal references, a landlord reference/approval if you rent, and veterinary reference if you currently have or have had a pet in your home within the last 5 years. You may come to the shelter and pick up an application during our hours of operation, or you may print one from our website and email or drop off. You may indicate on the application if you have a particular animal in mind to adopt, or a particular breed or size, however we do not hold animals and they will always go to the best home. You only need apply once and your application will remain on file with us. Once your application is approved, we'll notify you to come and find your new family member.
We do not charge a fee for our adoptions, however we do ask for a donation. That donation is to cover our medical expenses as all of our animals are vaccinated and spayed and neutered. They are also treated for any medical conditions such as heart worm, torn ligaments, cancer, and supplemental foods as needed. Averaging out all of these costs we ask a $300 minimum donation. We receive no funding from private or government agencies to financially support us and depend totally on donations to pay our vet bills so that no animal is denied medical care.
At this time, the shelter does not have an animal fostering program.
