Gracie's Story...
Gracie came to the shelter at the end of May after living on the streets and avoiding capture for several weeks. She arrived very nervous and timid and unresponsive to the people at the shelter. The first time she came into the play yard she walked in quietly and sniffed around for a minute or two. Then BOOM! – the real Gracie appeared. Suddenly Gracie was animated and playful, chasing the handlers and craving their attention. Now Gracie is the first to greet the handlers with enthusiasm and loves just about everyone she meets. At two-and-a-half years old Gracie has plenty of energy and her biggest sin at the moment is that when she greets people she sometimes becomes over excited and jumps – but that behavior can be corrected with basic training. Gracie is looking for a family that wants to spend lots of time with her, preferably where someone is home most or all of the day.
Please call the shelter 516-944-8220 during working hours (Mon. to Fri. 9AM-4PM; Sat. 10-4PM) for more information about Gracie, the adoption process at the shelter, and to confirm availability. Please go to www.theshelterconnection.com for more information about and directions to the shelter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gracie, a Port Washington Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Port Washington, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Port Washington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Port Washington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Port Washington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Port Washington paves the way for another one to be saved.
