Summer of Love

Adopt Your "Furr-ever" Friend For Free
June 15th through September 12, 2015


Adopt your "Furr-ever" Friend this Summer.

It's the "Summer of Love" at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter, and that meansit's time to adopt your "furr-ever" friend! From June 15th through September 12th, all pet adoptions are free and include free spaying/neutering, rabies vaccinations, age-appropriate shots and microchipping (all cats will be tested for feline AIDS/leukemia).

Throw a Dog a Bone- Bring a Pet Home.

There's no better time to adopt than in the heat of summer. A dog would love to fetch a bone out in the beautiful weather, while a cat will find that warm, sunny spot in the window.  The shelter is located at 3320 Beltagh Avenue in Wantagh, and is open for adoptions Tuesday through Sunday. Click here for adoption hours.

Love on the Web

You don't even have to visit the shelter to start looking for your "furr-ever" friend. Prospective adopters can go online to find all the dogs and cats currently up for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. Browse photos and information about our adoptable pets by clicking here.
