Ozzie is a playful pup looking for a new friend to match his exuberance. He has begun basic obedience training at the shelter and so far has proven to be an “A” student. Ozzie is friendly and gets along well with other dogs. He needs an experienced companion dedicated to continuing his training.
Duke is true to his name. With his manners and regal looks, this mature gentleman will steal your heart. But don’t let the gray fool you; this happy guy has a ball on the shelter’s nature trail and agility course. Duke knows all of his basic commands, happily greets all people he meets, and is awaiting his new home.
Baloo seeks a permanent cuddling and ball throwing companion to call her own. She eagerly leans in for petting when with her handlers and plays nicely with toys. Although she does not prefer the company of canines, Baloo loves all people she meets and would make a great family pet.
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.
