A dog after my own heart. Lab mixes make amazing companions and Marley is ready to go home to his new forever family today!
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.
The staff at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is in love with Marley!! This handsome, sweet, 2 year old Lab mix is not only super adorable, he's also a genius. Marley knows a ton of commands already, including "paw" - where he offers up BOTH paws for double the fun! Is it not just the cutest thing when a dog can just sit there and give you his paws over and over?
Marley is social and friendly with people and is being recommended for a home with kids 13 and up. Marley is friendly and social with dogs, after correct intros. Marley is sure to make an incredible companion and will be forever grateful you gave him that second chance he so desperately needed. Please call for more information: 516-785-5220 or come visit the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter at: 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh NY 11793.
The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is still in need of bedding donations: Cat beds, dogs beds, sheets, bath towels (not hand towels or wash cloths), comforters, blankets, and anything else comfy for their homeless pets to cuddle up with while they wait for their forever homes. Please remember to ask your friends and neighbors to donate their old bedding too!
Thanks for reading and please remember to always adopt- never shop... pass it on!
