Long island is a great place to own a dog. If you are thinking about bringing a new dog into your home, there are a number of area organizations with adoptable animals. Many of the local shelter groups have web sites, facebook pages and email addresses. Feel free to contact them and let them know what you are looking for, or fill out their on-line applications. There is a dog waiting for you.
Pets4Luv Foundation *****
Pets4Luv is an all breed dog and cat rescue with our primary focus being on the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of those animals that are injured, ill, disabled, and other types of special need, whether it is a temporary condition or a lifelong one.
Forgotten Friends of LI
We are dedicated to the rescue of companion animals left in municipal shelters for an extended period of time, overlooked by both the general public and other rescue groups.
A municipal shelter is run by a city, county, or other public entity and is funded by taxpayer dollars. Such shelters are staffed by civil servants who may or may not have any experience working with animals. … Its primary job is to find homes for these animals
