Compassionate Animal Rescue Efforts of Dutchess County


We are unable to guarantee that a specific puppy will be available at the time of your appointment.

Our DOG and CAT Online Applications Links are below.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Our adoption fee for puppies/adult dogs is $400 and the adoption fee for senior dogs (over 5 years old) is $350.

That includes the dog being spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots and microchipped.

Our adoption fee for kittens under 6 months $200 and the adoption fee for older cats is $150.

That includes being spayed or neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and feline/aids tested and microchipped.

Thank you for wanting to rescue.
We are all volunteers. We all work full time jobs, many have kids, our own dogs, and foster dogs. We do the best we can to process the applications quickly.

Please allow FIVE Business days to process your application. At that time you will be emailed the status of your application.

In order to expedite your application & reduce any delay PLEASE:

  • Contact your vet and give them permission to speak with us about your current animal’s vaccination records.
  • Let your references know someone will be contacting them from our organization.
  • If you rent, we must have permission from your landlord, so let them know you’re considering adoption.

While we would love to be able to answer all emails, due to the volume of applications, we will only contact you if we have further questions.  Thank you for your patience. 

At this time we are making appointments for people with approved application only. Please keep in mind that we do not guarantee any specific puppy will be available at the time of your appointment. If you are interested in a specific ADULT dog please let us know, If they are available for adoption we will schedule accordingly.
