11am - 3pm  
Last Hope Adoption Center 
3300 Beltagh Ave

All Long Island pet owners are eligible; no appointment necessary, but all pets must be at least 4 months old. Dogs must be leashed, and cats need to be in carriers. Dogs must be dog & people-friendly. Please bring paper certificate proof of a recent rabies shot, if you are planning on asking for a 3 year, rather than 1 year rabies vaccine certificate for your dog or cat. Our vet will determine if the pet's past vaccine is recent enough for a 3 year certificate. A rabies tag does not constitute proof.  This rabies clinic is made possible because of grant assistance from the Banfield Foundation. For more information about our free rabies vaccine clinic, call 631-671-2588 or visit . In addition, Last Hope is offering several other vaccines at low cost: $12 Feline or Canine Distemper combo and $12 Bordetella (canine kennel cough).

As I post this today, Queenie
has been in our shelter for 911 days! She actually came from another shelter where she stayed prior! Our "Queen" is 5 years old, very playful & well trained. She needs to have a throne of her own! If you have an active lifestyle or could use a cuddle, Queenie could be your sidekick! She knows commands such as sit, down, stay, place, drop and more!

Please consider fostering to adopt, or just come meet her to see if she would make a good fit!  Don't let 1000 days happen!
