The Shelter Connection has been able to improve the quality of life for our shelter dogs in so many ways. Some of our earliest contributions include subsidizing the shelter's food budget to improve the quality of dog food, purchasing beds for the kennels, crates for training and our crate loaning program to adopters, and buying treats, toys and other training material. In addition to the physical health and comfort these items provide, we are able to keep our dogs engaged in training and exercise improving their chances for a successful adoption.
Over time we have succeeded in even more ambitious projects that make the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter a progressive model for open admission shelters.
