Fees Waived For Summer Adoptions

Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter waives fees for summer pet adoptionsThe Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is hosting its “Summer of Love” program, waiving all pet adoption fees from Saturday, June 10 through Sunday, Sept. 3. Newly adopted pets will be spayed/neutered and receive age-appropriate vaccinations and microchipping, free of charge.

“The Town of Hempstead is committed to finding permanent homes for all of our shelter’s great dogs and cats,” said Town Supervisor Anthony Santino. “We encourage residents to take advantage of free adoptions during the ‘Summer of Love,’ at the town shelter.”

The town has also partnered with three local businesses that have been dedicated supporters of pet adoptions at the town’s animal shelter. Dog Grooming by Rachel in Bellmore will provide a coupon for one free grooming for dogs. Island Trees Veterinary Hospital in Hicksville will give coupons for a free exam and $25 toward veterinary services. Fido Fitness Club in Woodmere will provide a coupon for one free training class, as well as one half-day of “doggie daycare.”

Shelter staff and volunteers are available to assist prospective pet adopters. Neighbors can also visit toh.li/animal-shelter to browse photos and information about cats and dogs available for adoption, or contact the shelter at 516-785-5220. The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is located at 3320 Beltagh Ave. in Wantagh.
