Add Some Love to Your Home by Adopting a Dog from the Town’s Animal Shelter
North Hempstead, NY – This July, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board would like to remind residents about several dogs up for adoption at the Town’s Animal Shelter. This month’s featured pups include Belle and Joey.
Belle is a senior Beabull (Beagle/English Bulldog) that was surrendered to the Shelter because her owner could not take care of her anymore. Belle is a simple dog that enjoys a nice stroll on nature trail, chasing the tennis ball, and a few pats on the back. When she first came to the Shelter she did not seem much interested in treats, but, in true Beagle fashion, she's come around and is now extremely treat-motivated! Don't let her age fool you - she is a sporty gal that would make a fun walking companion, but she also enjoys relaxing in the house. Belle needs to be the only dog in the house.
Joey came to the Town by way of Georgia through The Shelter Connection's rescue program. He is social and friendly, and he has made some great progress in learning commands and walking on a leash. He is an energetic, smart guy that is looking for an active family dedicated to continuing his training. Joey gets along with other dogs and would need a companion who can match his play level. Due to his exuberance, we are recommending a home with children who are older than 10 years of age and recommended there are no cats or other small pets in the house.
The North Hempstead Animal Shelter is located at 75 Marino Avenue in Port Washington and is open Monday through Fridays (except holidays) 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To make an appointment to visit or for more information on a featured dog, please call 311 or 516-869-6311.
