Moose's Story...
Moose is an owner-surrender because of landlord objections. He is an adult dog who appears to have led a simple and happy life with his one owner and it is hard to watch him sitting confused and lonely in his cage. Even though Moose misses his owner he hasn’t let that stop him making new friends and all the handlers say “what a nice dog” when his name is mentioned. Moose’s owner told the shelter staff he likes other dogs and he has shown that he is generally calm and easy going. Moose didn’t appear to know many obedience commands when he came to the shelter or even how to play with the baskets of toys we have, but he is enjoying working with the handlers and already knows sit. Even though he is medium sized and strong, Moose walks nicely on the leash and really likes to be with people and pleasing them. Moose is looking for a forever home who will introduce him to all the simple pleasures in life like chasing balls and playing games and that doesn’t have a landlord who might decide this handsome boy is an inconvenience.
Please call the shelter 516-944-8220 during working hours (Mon. to Fri. 9AM-4PM; Sat. 10-4PM) for more information about Moose, 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

Moose, a Port Washington American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Port Washington, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier 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 American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Port Washington paves the way for another one to be saved.
