The Shelter Connection is the volunteer organization at The Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter . We supply trained volunteers as adoption advisors and dog handlers. Our main goal is to increase both the number and quality of adoptions. We also sponsor the "Mend-A-Paw" fund for special medical and surgical needs of the shelter dogs. Secondary missions of our organization include breed choice selection, responsible care information, post adoption problem solving, public awareness of shelter dog availability, and spay/neuter education.

We fight for the lives of the REAL underdogs!
