If you have some time to help a local animal shelter, this is an easy way to do so.

The Dutchess County SPCA posted on their Facebook page back on September 27th that they were looking for specific donations. They were in need of blankets.

While they ended up getting some donations, they still need more.

If you have any used, clean, blankets or are able to buy a new one, there are several places you can drop off your donations. According to the SPCA they will have donation boxes at the Hyde Park Free Library and all branches of Rhinebeck Savings Bank for the rest of the month.

If you'd like to bring the donations directly to the Dutchess County SPCA , they're open Tuesday through Sunday from 12pm-5pm and will extend their hours on Thursday until 7pm.

The Dutchess County SPCA is located at 636 Violet Avenue, Hyde Park and can be reached by phone at 845-452-7722.
