Welcome to The Putnam County SPCA Web Site!
We are an independent organization, having the necessary approval of the ASPCA, but receive NO FUNDING from the ASPCA. Throughout Putnam County, we provide the much needed services of enforcing the animal cruelty laws, providing humane education, and housing the abused animals seized from terrible situations.
About The Putnam County SPCA
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO...
We are a NYS certified law enforcement agency, given full "police powers" to enforce the laws of New York State, specifically those that pertain to animals. Our officers conduct criminal investigations, make arrests, and work with all other law enforcement agencies. We respond to calls from residents of Putnam County as well as area police departments. We are available to speak to schools and at other functions regarding animal cruelty.
WHAT WE ARE NOT...
We are not animal control. We do not replace local animal / dog control officers or the Putnam Humane Society. We do not pick up stray animals, or handle barking complaints.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Providing this service to the residents and animals of Putnam County is extremely costly. Insurance, gasoline, vehicles, etc. are all expenses that are incurred. We ask for any donation that you can possibly make to help us help animals who are subjected to acts of violence and cruelty. We are in desperate need of housing for seized animals and funds to cover our expenses. Endowments/donations/gifts of property, funds, etc. are all essential to our survival. We look for local business to help provide needed services such as car repairs, etc. to help us continue our mission.
