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.
 
Cuteness Alert!  Lulubelle is the adorable and unique looking pooch who is perhaps a somewhat Pug face with a Basset or Corgi body. Her coloring and coat are Beagle or Basset. What a combo!  This sweet dog comes to Last Hope Animal Rescue from a Kentucky Shelter. She's only 3 years old, 4 tops, and has had at least one litter. Before coming to Last Hope, a KY vet removed 2 small mammary nodules when she was spayed. There were wide margins and he feels she will be fine. Lulubelle loves people and did well at a recent street fair adoption event. She needs an adopter who will treat her like a pup princess.  For adoption information, check out Last Hope's website.
 
No election required - Alexander is known as the mayor of the Last Hope cat center. Alexander is described as a  comical character with gorgeous looks and an awesome personality.  This little fella has been known to hang out in the Last Hope kitchen, and has mastered the art of opening food packages in under 5 seconds!   Please consider making Alexander your new best bud.  For adoption information, check out information here.
 
Okay folks - if your looking for the perfect family dog, T.T. is your girl! Check this out - T.T. is house trained, knows the commands “sit” and “stay”, gives paw, and is friendly and playful with children and even other animals!  T.T. is a sweetheart who deserves a family of her own.  She currently resides at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and would love to go home with you today! For more info: 516-785-5220. You won't be sorry :)
