New Improvements Made at Town of North Hempstead’s Animal Shelter
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board recently announced that the Town’s Animal Shelter has undergone its latest stage of improvements. This latest project, which was approved by the Town Board on February 24th, includes new electric heaters for outdoor kennels and zippered drop walls, and is being accomplished with a $45,000 grant from the Shelter Connection. The goal of the project is to protect the shelter’s dogs from the harsh winter conditions. The drop walls were put up in April, and the electric heaters are slated to be installed later this year. The Shelter Connection is a non-for-profit organization, which works in partnership with the Town of North Hempstead to run the shelter.
