Introducing Cookie & Big Albert! 

  

Cookie #2289 is 3+ yrs, a beautiful AmStaff mix. Found close to a year ago when the "owner" left her on the street, she was terrified and reactive. Cookie since went for training, has been a shelter office dog since her return and won the hearts of staffers. She is outgoing, loves to run and play with her people, knows some basic commands and deserves a home of her own. Cookie would be best with a savvy dog family, and might even enjoy the right canine friend.

 

 

 

 

 

Big Albert #4735 just came to us as a 25lb, front declaw, super friendly stray tabby. Found by a good Samaritan (outside of our jurisdiction), so far no one has come to look for him nor has the local shelter for his area checked in. Albert obviously came from a home - he should be back as an indoor housecat with a family that loves and cares for him. Comfortable in a quiet home, or one with well behaved tweens and up, he doesn't seem familiar with younger children. 


You can find both Cookie & Big Albert at: 

Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter 3320 Beltagh Ave 
WantaghNY 11793 

(516) 785-5220
