Adoption Corner!


Introducing Scooby, Napoleon & Cowboy!


Beagle, 8 years old, Male
Scooby has been stealing hearts at the shelter left and right since he arrived; everybody that meets him instantly falls in love. This gentle and modest guy wants nothing more than cuddling sessions, outdoor romps, and tasty treats from his human companion. Scooby seeks a loving, calm household to enjoy his golden years.


If you're looking to share quiet nights in front of the TV, leisurely strolls through the park, or need a good listener in your life, Napoleon is the perfect buddy for you. This mellow guy wants nothing more than to sit by your side (or in your lap, if it were up to him!) for petting and snuggling. Although he does not prefer the company of canines, Napoleon gets along with all people he meets and would make a great family pet as the only "dog-child."  Scooby and Napoleon are both available for adoption at:

The Shelter Connection / Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter

75 Marino Ave. 
Port Washington, NY 11050

Call  (516) 767-4615

or email


Cowboy came to us from the ASPCA. He is a 6 year old, well trained boy mix of fun who is going to see his 2nd year here. Cowboy should be the only dog in the home since he is picky about his dog friends. He is a lovable boy who will go for a walk to "anywhere" with you. Cowboy is an athletic guy who loves to play ball and will dress up for all occasions! He's a Training and kennel staff favorite, we are hoping that his "person" comes soon. Are you the one? Please come meet Cowboy.

Cowboy is available for adoption at the

Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation

102 Old Riverhead Road West 
Hampton BaysNew York 11946
