Islip Animal Shelter “Long-timers” – Adopt one today!

These animals have been waiting at our shelter for over 6 months for their forever home!
That’s 6 months too long!

Come down and meet these loves. Please consider adopting one of these dogs over the others, as the need for them to be adopted is much more urgent that others.


Hazel has been at the shelter since June of 2013. Hazel has grown up at the shelter. She came to us a scared little girl around 6 to 7 months old. She’s spent over a year being overlooked. She’s now about a year and a half old, and she isn’t getting any younger! Hazel is tired of being in the shelter. She has changed a lot over the months and needs to get out of her cage and into a home setting where she came be comfortable. Hazel knows her commands – sit, down, come, and stay. She also walks nicely on a leash with a little leadership. Though Hazel started off enjoying the company of other animals, over the months she has become more dominant and has decided she would like to be the only animal in the home.  She would do best with older children, if any.






Sandy has been at the shelter since November of 2013. She hates being in her cage, and often gets overlooked because of that. Once Sandy is out of her cage she is a happy girl who is eager to please. Sandy knows some commands, like sit and down, and she is learning how to walk nicely by your side on a leash. Sandy would rather be in a home without other animals but would be just fine with children.


If any of these animals fit the description of what you’re looking for, we ask you to please come down and ask for these dogs by name. Please always see a dog out of the cage to see its true personality. And please consider that these animals spent most of their lives in a cage – when they get out at first, they will be over-excited and hyper. Give them some time to let that energy wear off. Then see them for who they really are.

If you can’t adopt, please share these dogs and their stories.

We are their only chance at a life worth living.
