We require an adoption application completed online listing both veterinary and personal references. If approved, a home check and "meet and greet" with the animal is scheduled. If all goes well, an official adoption contract is signed.

We charge adoption fees to allow us to continue rescuing animals in need. The adoption fees cover spay/neuter, vaccination costs and any additional veterinary care the animal may have needed.


Puppies and dogs under the age of 2, we ask an adoption fee of at least $200 and dogs 3 years and older an adoption fee of at least $175.
Each animals adoption fee is different.

Needs to be solo pet

Hi come in I wait for a visitor. My name is Lexi I am a sweet, shy, quiet, girl. I am 6 years old up to date on all my shots. I hear the complaining from people cause they can’t go out. Yet I have sat in a cage for 3 long years no fault of my own. My first family just moved. My second family all of a sudden they were allergic my third family I was adored and a good friend but my dad got a girlfriend. Yes he threw me away like trash. With the virus there are not even a lot of volunteers, here I sit alone no one to cuddle and love. No one to go for walks with or play and give me special treats. All I want is a quiet, kind understanding mommy/ daddy. Someone who understands I am shy and scared around new things. I love people but not many at once. I don’t deserve to be locked up for another day because humans are cruel. Can you be my savior? The shelter wants people to come meet me because of all I have been through. Neglect is abuse and I’ve been neglected and thrown away to many times. The shelter is in wantagh NY. I’m well worth the ride, can’t put distance on true love.
