It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter – because all pet adoptions are free during “Home for the Holidays!” Supervisor Don Clavin – along with Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, Councilman Bruce Blakeman, Councilman Anthony D’Esposito, Councilman Dennis Dunne, Sr., Councilman Tom Muscarella, Councilman Chris Carini, Town Clerk Kate Murray and Receiver of Taxes Jeanine Driscoll – is excited to announce this annual program, which seeks to find loving homes for dogs and cats during the holiday season.
Free adoptions run through January 2, 2022. Age-appropriate vaccinations, spaying/neutering and microchipping are included in all adoptions.
“The Town of Hempstead encourages all residents to consider adopting a dog or cat into their family during ‘Home for the Holidays,’” stated Supervisor Clavin. “With all adoption and related fees waived, there’s no better time to adopt.”
Neighbors can get a head start on the adoption process by visiting the Animal Shelter’s website at hempsteadny.gov/animal-shelter and on Facebook @TOHAnimalShelter, where they can view cats and dogs that are currently up for adoption.
The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is located at 3320 Beltagh Avenue in Wantagh. Adoption hours are by appointment only – for more information, please call the shelter at (516) 785-5220.
“We encourage neighbors to visit the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter, and find the newest member of their family to bring ‘home for the holidays,’” concluded Supervisor Clavin.
