Homeless animals across Long Island are as cute as they come. The only thing they are missing is a forever home. Read all about how to adopt and save a life right here!

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh:

Diamond is a brightly shining senior pit mix who so desperately needs a new home. She was surrendered by her owner because they could no longer care for her. She is 9 1/2 years old, 65 pounds, and happens to have the most gorgeous brownish/reddish fur and floppy ears.

Diamond lived in the same home her entire life, and now finds herself alone, and homeless. Staff and volunteers are heart heartbroken for this sweet gal who deserves a loving home to grow old in. As per her previous owner, Diamond is house trained, knows the commands “sit,” “stay” and “come,” is quite friendly with people, and would love nothing more than to make her way back into a home as fast as possible.

If you are interested in adopting Diamond, call 516-785- 5220, email at adop[email protected] or visit 3320 Beltagh Ave., Wantagh.

Peppermint Patty Grammy
Peppermint Patty and Grammy

Nine-year old Peppermint Patty (reference #V37015) and 10-year old Grammy (reference
#V37016) are the cutest dynamic duo we’ve ever seen! This bonded pair of senior beagles are just about as sweet as they come. Despite their age, they love playing together and running around.

These two know how to show you a good time all the time as they greet you with their
tails wagging! You might even get a kiss or two!


Harlem (reference #BF2110) is the most handsome cat with his hypnotizing green eyes and gorgeous tabby coloring! Locally rescued, this 4-year-old kitty is happy, healthy and waiting to meet you. He loves a good ear rub, and a rigorous round of play with feather toys and cat nip. He has coexisted with other cats but he’s just as happy to be on his own. 

Because he can be an enthusiastic player, a home with children 12 years and older will benefit him as he adjusts to his happy new life in a loving home. If you’re looking for feline companionship, let North Shore Animal League America introduce you to this dreamboat today!

Dark and handsome Dart (reference #180026) came to the shelter as a stray in mid-January. He is the most beautiful domestic medium-haired male, with such a shiny black coat. He is estimated to be just about 5 years old.

Dart loves to explore and check out his surroundings, then he is ready to take a seat right on your lap to collect his abundance of petting, love and affection. This very handsome boy is up to date on all his vaccines, neutered and is now micro chipped. Dart is hoping to be lucky enough to find his forever home very soon!


Ready to fall in love? Meet Tinsel (reference #170670). This very handsome and friendly 8-year-old neutered male is single and ready to mingle his way into a new forever home. Since arriving at the shelter as a stray in early December from an industrial garage, he has been given the TLC treatment and has made shelter staff and volunteers fall head-over- heels in love with him. It is now time for him to start the next part of his journey and find a loving home of his own.
