October is Adopt A Dog Month

October 1st does not just mark the beginning of the spooky season, but it also welcomes Adopt A Shelter Dog Month. In America, there is an average of 3 to 4 million adoptable pets waiting to find their forever homes. Shelters and rescues are a great option when looking for a pet companion.

For anyone considering adopting a pet companion, here is a list of (some) local animal shelters and pet rescues:


Happy Life Animal Rescue

Dutchess County SPCA

C.A.R.E. of Dutchess County

Hudson Valley Animal Rescue & Sanctuary

Crate Escape Rescue

Hudson Valley SPCA

Animal Farm Foundation (Pitbull Exclusive Rescue)

Mid-Hudson Animal Aid (Cat Exclusive Rescue)

Animal Rescue Foundation


Putnam Humane Society


Danbury Animal Welfare Society

Pawsafe Animal Rescue

This list is an intended resource for anyone in the Hudson Valley looking to adopt. I believe that most of these rescues adopt to anyone who lives in the region, but be sure to inquire! We’d love to add to the list; Are there any rescues you would like us to add that we may have missed? Please, let us know in the comments!

*Note: Planet Groom fully supports responsible breeders and all, loving dog owners.*
