It’s hard to understand why sweet 5-year-old Casey was left to die after being hit by a car. This special-needs girl would truly make an amazing companion and would show her new owner everyday how much having her own home would mean to her. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Casey, please email [email protected] for more information.

If you can’t adopt Casey but want to help the NCSPCA with their amazing rescue efforts, at 6 p.m. May 9, you can attend “Just Desserts” event at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City. Not only do all proceeds benefit the NCSPCA, but there will be a huge Chinese auction and tables of delicious desserts, too!

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

Dutch is a very handsome 7-year-old boy who was adopted from the TOH Animal Shelter in 2012 and then returned in July 2016. His previous owners say he is house-trained and crate-trained and is used to living with adults and teenagers. Dutch is playful, gentle and loyal but can be protective and wary of new people.

Dutch has spent most of his life in the same home, and now he finds himself back in a shelter. Volunteers and staff are completely heartbroken for Dutch, and hopes a new family comes along very soon and falls in love with this mush. Dutch is social with dogs and knows multiple commands already!

He is also very quiet and well behaved in his crate here at the shelter. If you are interested in adopting Dutch, please call the shelter at 516-785-5220, visit them at 3320 Beltagh Ave., Wantagh, or email [email protected]Pets4Luv
