Hunter's Story...
Beagles are adorable. Snoopy is a Beagle, and usually they are adopted from the shelter as quickly as they arrive. But not so for our fabulous Beagle named Hunter who has been at the shelter for several months. Hunter is an adult dog who walks nicely on leash, which is a great benefit because normally a beagle pulls a lot while following his nose. Hunter jumps sometimes because he’s so pleased to see you but he is so friendly you have to forgive him and he is happiest when being pet. So why is Hunter experiencing an extended stay at the shelter? Frankly because he “looks kinda funny”. Hunter suffers from a skin condition which was left untreated and by the time he arrived at the shelter Hunter had lost 90+% of his hair and his skin was red and sore. Hunter is being treated and responding well but slowly which is the norm for an older dog with this condition. Hunter will need a little extra TLC to keep his skin and whatever may return of his coat in the best condition possible. But “looking kinda funny” doesn’t stop Hunter being an adorable and adoring Beagle and as we all know, everyone loves a Beagle.
Please call the shelter 516-944-8220 during working hours (Mon. to Fri. 9AM-4PM; Sat. 10-4PM) for more information about Hunter, 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

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