Pet Events for April 2 - April 9, 2014

This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by
Hounds Town USA!

Hounds Town USA (Farmingdale, Port Jefferson and Ronkonkoma) offers each and every four legged guest a safe, loving and healthy environment, and peace of mind for Moms and Dads. Our large indoor/outdoor play areas allow dogs to fully interact from morning to night. Each and every member of our team are trained to handle the dogs in a loving and safe manner. At Hounds Town USA, we do not breed discriminate! Any social dog is invited to join the fun; the dogs are grouped by size and temperament. 

 At Hounds Town USA you will find a refreshingly honest and straight forward approach to pet care. We offer our customers a way to make their lives easier - and less stressful - with worry-free, flexible and reliable service. Our fee is a one-size-fits-all. That means NO additional or hidden charges for bringing your own food, treats, toys or beds! The price does not change based on the size of the dog or the breed. And we offer discounts for long-term boarding. In addition to boarding and daycare, we also offer grooming, taxi services and training.  For more information, please visit us online *Ask about our current, turn-key franchise opportunities!

Thanks to Hounds Town USA for making this newsletter possible!

Pet, Pet Related & Nature Events For Long Island, NYC, NJ & CT!  


Fur Ball Gala

Thursday, April 3, 2014



199 Mills Pond Road

St. James, NY 11780


Join us for a wonderful evening of music, food and dancing to benefit the animals of Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center at our annual Fur Ball Gala!  Held at the beautiful Flowerfield in St. James!  Each year, Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center rescues thousands of homeless, abandoned and abused animals and places them in permanent, loving homes. We support LI communities through spay/neuter programs, feral cat TNR (trap, neuter, return), humane education and public awareness. In recent years, weve taken in more animals than ever before who find themselves homeless through no fault of their own. We are fundraising for a mobile education and adoption unit to bring our available pets out of the shelter and into our communities and give even more homeless pets a new leash on life. Tickets are $150 per guest, $250 per couple. Dress Attire - Casual Smart. For more information, please click here

The Smithtown Animal Shelter

410 East Main Street

Smithtown New York 11787

Tel: (631) 360-7575 


Big Mac, # 4283, is a 3 year neutered brown tabby. A wonderful, calm and friendly boy who came to us in March 2014 via a concerned neighbor. His people moved, opened the door and left both housecats behind. Mac would rather have love and pets than treats or toys. He would likely be good with another cat, and would be a great "starter" cat since he is so easy going. Let's get him back into a home soon - the shelter is depressing him!

Big Mac & Contessa are available at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:
Office helper dog Contessa, # 7926 has been with us
since October 2012 (or 1/3 of her life). She came in as a stray in heat, used repeatedly for breeding and suffering a urinary tract infection. Contessa is a people-centric girl, she loves being near the office staff and greeting clients. She quietly crates herself, plays with her favorite toys, and seeks human attention. A strong pooch, she needs continued leash training and would love to be your only pet. 
Town of Hempstead of Animal Shelter, 3320 Beltagh Ave.,Wantagh, N.Y., 11793
