The Hempstead Town Animal Shelter is hosting the “My Furry Valentine”
pet adoption event on Feb. 16, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., where cats
and dogs can be taken home at no charge.
The animal shelter is waiving all fees on adoptions, which include
spaying/neutering, rabies vaccinations and microchipping (cats are
tested for feline AIDS/leukemia) from Feb. 9-16.
"I encourage all residents to come down and join us on Feb. 16 to
take part in the festivities and find a ‘furry valentine’ to call their
own," Shelter Director Cynthia Iacopella said.
Families can have their pictures taken for free with “Cupid” and
their newly adopted pal. On hand will also be various goods, raffles and
a bake sale. And, if you bring a pet treat or toy for a shelter animal,
you become eligible for a door prize.
The Hempstead Town Animal Shelter is located at 3320 Beltagh Ave. in
Wantagh. For more information, call the shelter at (516) 785-5220 or
