Adoption Corner!


Introducing Gracie, Apple & Cupid!


Gracie is blind and was abandoned on the side of the Belt Parkway. She is very petite, weighs 6.5 lbs, sweet, affectionate and once familiar with her surroundings gets around very well, she always uses her litter pan. She is approximately 1 year old, vaccinated, tested, spayed. Seeking a home where she will receive all the attention she deserves. I am fostering her at my home because of the level of stress to her in a shelter situation.


Inquire with Debbie @ Baldwin Animal Hospital 516-223-1555 or directly with Bobbi & the Strays @ 516-378-4340.




Our girl could be the "Apple" of your eye! Fours years old , spayed, terrier mix Apple came in underweight, bitten by flies and fleas, & missing fur in September 2013. Although her hard life outdoors is over, she still awaits her forever home. Now healthy, beautiful and fun, she loves to chase balls and play tug. Apple adores human friends and is known for wanting to snuggle, hug and occasionally climb on people's laps! She loves meeting new people at adoption events, but is not a cat fan and nervous with other dogs. This is one delicious Apple.
