I had a mother cat come up to me meowing her head off.She was feral.i started feeding her.several weeks later she bought her kittens to the feeding area.thanks to the ulster county SPCA spey and neuter program I was able to get all of her kittens fixed at a very reasonable price.Someday I might be lucky enough to catch the momma cat but in the meantime thanks to these people I have been keeping the numbers down

I was lucky enough to adopt a senior dog that was rescued by the UCSPCA after being dumped on the steets of New Paltz. They do their due diligence to make sure the animal and person are the right fit. Nov I will have the little man for 1 year. So happy love him so much! Thanks for all you do UC SPCA! As you can see the little guy in grey fits right in!

I have adopted 6 animals from the UCSPCA over the years. The latest 2 great cats. Almost 17 years ago we adopted Casey, a collie shepherd mix. The best dog and she is still going strong. We love her with all of our hearts. The UCSPCA is great. They do great work. Go see them and find your furry true love as we did.
