Adoption Corner!

Introducing Princess, Moffet, Frankie & Janell! 

Two year old Princess 5956 a tiny 38 lb pittie was found abandoned in deplorable conditions. She is shy and scared at the shelter but takes comfort by cuddling in the volunteer's laps. She is learning to leash walk and play with toys. Being around another dog helps Princess feel more comfortable. Her ideal home would be with experienced owners, lots of love, time and patience to help her navigate through life. Due to her shyness Princess would do best in a home with children ten and up. She is vaccinated, and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. 

Handsome & playful Moffet # 5940 is a M/N 8 mo.old clown! Owner relinquished due to family medical issues, he lived with dogs and a bearded dragon whom he considered as friends. Moffet loves toys, engages in play with people or entertains himself given a fun toy. He loves attention and is vocal about his likes (toys, attention, etc.) and dislikes (car rides). Moffet would probably be best with playful tweens and up and perhaps as the only cat. He actually is a bit much for many of other the cats and annoys them a little with his constant activity.

Both of these pets are available at: 
Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter 
3320 Beltagh Ave 
wantaghNY 11793 
(516) 785-5220

Frankie is a gorgeous and super sweet female Pittie who is about 8 months young and friendly and ready for a home! Frankie is mild-mannered for her age, a total mush, and would make a great family dog. She gets along well with other dogs and with children. Frankie is the newest addition to the Live Love Bark training program. She already knows sit and is working on her loose lead walking (and doing great). Frankie is very focused on eager to learn.

Janell needs a forever home. She is a between five and seven years old. She is friendly and enjoys a little love and affection. She has a cloudy eye but it doesn't stop her at all.
Frankie & Janell are available at:
Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center 
210 S. Denver Ave 
Bay ShoreNY 11706 
(631) 224-5660
