Adoption Corner!


Introducing Frankie, Momma, Ruckus & Sweetheart!


Frankie is a gorgeous, super sweet female Pittie who is young and friendly and ready for a home! She's about a year old. Frankie loves playtime and would love a yard to play in. She needs to be the only dog in the home and would do best with older children.





Momma is an adorable little Pit mix. Momma is sweet girl who lets you smush her and is happy just to be with people. She's about 4 years old and loves to be outside, able to run around or go in the pool. She likes toys but she likes cuddles and belly rubs much more!


 Frankie and Momma 
are available for adoption at the: 

 Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-pet Center/Live Love Bark 210 S. Denver Ave 

Bay ShoreNY 11706  Call (631) 224-5660,  or  email Venessa Rotondi at


Handsome Ruckus #8475 is almost 4 years old, has been in the shelter close to 2 years waiting more than his life for a home. He came in as a HW positive, stray terrier mix & was successfully treated. Adopted briefly then returned due to landlord and behavior issues, he has since been a model canine citizen. He goes to offsite events (including to NYC) where he is always well behaved: he is a Ruckstar. He loves people, other dogs, seems not to mind cats, & has aced basic commands. Smart & affectionate, he's a staff & volunteer favorite!

See a VIDEO of Ruckus by clicking here!


Sweetheart Daisy's #5245 a wonderful girl who has the misfortune of being FIV+. A lovely calico DSH, this 1 year old is asymptomatic and very healthy. She came to us as a stray Momma with newborns in June and entered foster care until the kittens were weaned. They tested negative and were soon adopted, but Daisy remains without a forever home. She is FeLv -; she's the prettiest, nicest cat. She enjoys people, other cats and dogs. A special needs kitty who would do well with other FIV cats, a dog or as your one & only girl. 


Ruckus and Sweetheart are available at the 

Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter 3320 Beltagh Ave 

WantaghNY 11793   (516) 785-5220
