This playful pup seeks a new friend of the “outdoorsy” type to accompany him on long walks. He has begun basic obedience training at the shelter and so far has proven to be an “A” student. Hutch is friendly, gets along well with other dogs, and is eager to learn; he needs an experienced companion dedicated to continue his training.
Bobby is quite the charmer. He is a well-mannered gentleman that is just about as “move-in-ready” as they come. He has mastered basic commands, is housebroken, gets along well with other dogs and all people he meets. He would make a great family pet in just about any home.
One look at her giant ears and you’ll know why her name is Piglet! This quirky girl will keep you smiling all day long. Piglet loves to give hugs, play with fellow canine friends, and is very attentive to her handlers. She is looking for a new friend that she can devote all of her love and affection to.
These pets can be adopted at the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter, 75 Marino Ave., Port Washington. The phone number is 516-767-4615.

Ever since the Garden City School District passed a $36.8 million School Investment Bond back in 2009, the upgrades throughout the district have been quite substantial. And while most of it has gone towards infrastructure, external visible improvements have rightfully been a source of pride for the board, which has taken to conducting tours at the different schools preceding the monthly public meetings that are normally held at Garden City High School. On the night of the school board meeting held on Tuesday, Oct. 14 at the Homestead Building, the school board, administration and Superintendent Dr. Robert Feirsen went on a guided tour of the building by Homestead Principal Dr. Suzanne Viscovich.
Feirsen described the tour as a new tradition started last year where administration travels around each of the district’s school buildings in the Fall to observe its current offerings and recent upgrades.
