LI's Adorable Adoptables is a weekly column by Allison Matos, a lifelong Long Island resident who has been advocating animal adoption since 2012. Allison's weekly posts highlight local animals in need of adoption, and cover general animal welfare topics as well.

If you ask the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter staff what they say about Happy, well they will say they were in love from the moment they laid eyes on him. Happy is a 1 year old, gorgeous Hound mix, came to the shelter after being found loose in a park. Happy is exactly that - Happy.

He is sweet, excited, lovable, affectionate and just so darn cute. Happy also likes other dogs. This dog is not to be missed, and nothing would be greater than for him to find a furever home as fast as possible! If you would like to learn more, please call the shelter to speak to a staff member today: 516-785-5220, or come in to fill out an application: 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh NY 11793.

Thanks very much for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop...pass it on!
