Procedure to Adopt a Dog from the City of Kingston:
Individuals wishing to adopt a dog that is currently being sheltered by the City of Kingston need to contact the Ulster County SPCA at (845) 331-5377. All animals will be appropriately vaccinated for the rabies virus and distemper prior to being released to a new owner. All animals are spayed or neutered. The new owner will be responsible for licensing the dog with their local clerk. Licensing fees for the City of Kingston only are presently $9.00/year for a spayed or neutered dog and $18.00 for an un-spayed or un-neutered dog. Other communities may have different fee schedules. Adoption of animals is not restricted to City of Kingston residents only, it is open to any individual who is interested.
