CEED @ The Washington Lodge
287 South Country Road
Brookhaven Hamlet, NY 11719

Please join us for fun and celebration of the Winter Solstice, which is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. Come discover what is responsible for this and what it meant to our ancestors all over the world. The rotation and revolution of our Earth throughout the year produces Summer and Winter Solstices and Spring and Autumn Equinoxes. Learn what these events are and how they happen. We'll celebrate the coming of Winter with a bonfire, crafts, storytelling by a Native American who will explain what the solstice means in his native culture, decorate our tree with food for the animals, music, dancing and knowledge of how the Solstice works. Pets welcome too!  For more info email, call  (631) 566-1495 or click here.

When Nana and her two puppies came to Pets Alive in June, 2015, she was frightened. Cowering into the nearest corner, she did not take to the kennel. We set up a home for her in the Adoption Office, a more soothing area. As she became accustomed to her surroundings, she took interest in accepting a treat, and event moved off her bed, walked across the room, and sat on the couch! She now goes out into the play yard and will greet you when you enter the office. She is 6 years old and would like a forever home!

Bambi is a beautiful 6-year-old terrier mix. She has been here at ARF for way too long. She is a staff favorite, and for all the best reasons. She is affectionate and lives to please! Bambi radiates love and all she wants is her own human to share it with. She is super active and would enjoy an active home; she is also quite the cuddler. If her smile alone doesn't win you over, her personality will! This housebroken, obedience trained, outgoing gal needs a home!
