Islip Animal Shelter Holiday Pet Toy Drive!

Saturday, December 13, 2014

11am - 3pm

Islip Animal Shelter

210 S. Denver Avenue

Bay Shore, NY 11706


It's that time of year again! Our annual holiday pet toy drive is one of our biggest, and most fun fundraisers we have! Bring the whole family down and help make a difference in the lives of nearly 100 animals. For those who haven't been to past year's toy drives, we hang holiday stockings on each cage of each animal. It's your job to come down with toys and treats and fill them up!   This event is sponsored by Live Love Bark Dog Rescue Inc who will be walking each group of people through the shelter. They'll also have merchandise for sale, and raffles for you to win! Our goal is to raise enough toys to last the year. This past year we nearly made it. We needed to replenish by September. Lets beat those numbers this year!  Along with the toys and treats we collect for the stockings, we also collect donations of dry and canned food, laundry detergent, dish soap, collars and leashes, and pet beds!  Help make the holiday season merry and bright for our animals still waiting for their forever homes!

4:00pm - 7:00pm

Last Hope Adoption Center

3300 Beltagh Avenue

Wantagh, NY 11793


On Saturday, December 13th from 4-7 pm Last Hope Animal Rescue will be continuing a holiday tradition begun in 1998. We will be hosting "Trees of Love" at the Last Hope Adoption Center located at 3300 Beltagh Avenue in Wantagh 11793. Refreshments will be served after the illumination ceremony. Previous to the lighting of two decorated trees, participants purchase ribbons for $10 each. Gold ribbons honor living pets and red ribbons memorialize late pets. Pets names are written on the ribbons. A third tree is decorated in green ribbons only, but these are to remember the countless discarded pets throughout the country euthanized each year at overcrowded shelters. Supporters can also purchase these symbolic ribbons. All "Trees of Love" proceeds benefit Last Hope's rescued dogs and cats plus our community outreach programs such as Fix-A-Feral. For more information, or for a form to purchase ribbons in advance click here or call 631-671-2588.

Adoption Corner!


Introducing Bettie Boop & Sweetheart!


Calling all American Bulldog lovers, where are you? This

 low key, modest girl is muscle on the outside and heart on the inside. She seems to build strong bonds with her people, from what we can tell here at the shelter. During her photo session, she was playful, curious and easily engaged. We suspect she would be a lot of fun to train and a quick study, to boot. She's currently interviewing to find a compatible Human Friend (check her out, striking a pose!) and we're pretty sure that once she does, she'll give so much more love than she gets. 

Bettie Boop is available at 

The Shelter Connection / Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter 

75 Marino Ave. 
Port WashingtonNY 11050

Call  (516) 767-4615

or email


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
