Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

The Dutchess County SPCA will cel­e­brate its 145th an­niver­sary on Oct. 28 with an “An­i­mal King­dom Ball” at The Grand­view in Pough­keep­sie.

The third old­est an­i­mal wel­fare or­ga­ni­za­tion in the coun­try, the Dutchess County SPCA has helped res­cue more than 50,000 an­i­mals and has worked to pro­vide them with homes for the past 145 years.

The ball, which will run from 7 to 10 p.m., will serve as the Dutchess County SPCA’s pri­mary fundrais­ing event of the year, ac­cord­ing to Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Donna An­gi­o­lillo.

Along with danc­ing and a photo booth, guests will be treated to a vir­tual his­tor­i­cal pre­sen­ta­tion show­ing the Dutchess County SPCA from its in­cep­tion in 1871 through to the de­vel­op­ment of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s new state-of-theart Adop­tion & Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ter on Route 9G in Hyde Park.
