Summer is the season most of us look ahead to all year long. Alas, for shelter staff and their four-legged occupants, summertime is the scariest time of year. For some reason, the highest percentage of animal surrenders takes place during June, July and August. Once again, animal shelters have reached capacity. When available space runs out, there are merely two alternatives to make room: Adoption/foster or death. To avoid the latter alternative, I am listing a few of the wonderful dogs at the shelter.
If your family is considering adoption, or you know someone eager to welcome a dog into their home, please consider adopting or fostering an animal from the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. The shelter is located at 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh, New York. To read more about the shelter and the animals available for adoption, please check out their web site at http://toh.li/animal-shelter.
In addition to the dogs featured in the above photo section, please read past blog postings written by some of our best friends. Adopting an animal from a shelter saves the life of a dog and brings happiness to your home. Please visit the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter this weekend. Kindly share this post with your family and friends. Did I mention that the animal shelter is waiving adoption fees? It’s true. For a short time, adoptions are free.
