Animal Selected

The animals available for adoption came here from a variety of sources.  They are all examined upon entry and their health is routinely monitored while at the shelter.  Cats are all tested for feline leukemia and dogs are tested for heartworms.   Our adoption fee covers spay/neuter, vaccinations, worming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm prevention, microchipping and treatment of any medical conditions known to us.

The animal’s welfare is our foremost consideration.  A consultation process is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the animal’s best interest and to assist you in finding the animal most compatible with your lifestyle.  We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone. 

Adoption fees are cash or check made payable to Nassau Humane Society.
Dogs - $120
Cats  - $75
