Adopt April (FOSPICE)

Female Jack Russell Terrier


We pulled sweet April from Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter, where she had wound up as a stray on 04/16/2017. April was in very poor shape. She has a skin condition (most likely allergies, but had become infected after years of neglect). Her teeth were rotten, and she had very swollen lymphnodes around her mouth. She has had a dental (in which most of her teeth have been removed), and is now receiving medicated baths. April was very scared and shut down when we first took her, but she has warmed up to her foster mom and has even started wagging her tail! Due to April's age and number of conditions, we are considering April a fospice dog. Although we don't know how many years April has left, she is becoming more and more comfortable and is quite the happy little girl now. She is great with other dogs!

Shelter Description

We are a unique rescue, aiming to appeal to people who typically buy from pet stores and breeders. We want to promote adoption in a positive and fun way. We have the same goal as other shelters- to find homeless dogs and cats their forever homes, but we want to change the stigma some people have towards shelters and its animals by creating a chic place that people will want to go to.
We are always on the lookout for animal lovers who are interested in fostering our pets. Please contact us if you would like to assist us with this or other volunteer opportunities.
