Last week, Nassau County Animal Services (NCAS) announced that a female dog and her 11 puppies were found locked in a cage and abandoned in the woods in Callahan. We wanted to take a moment to thank the nice resident who located these pups and took the time to bring them to the shelter.



Fortunately, all the dogs were found to be in overall good condition. Upon sharing their photos and asking the public for help with puppy food, dozens of residents made generous donations to the shelter. A big thank you to all those individuals as well! We are fortunate to live in such a caring and giving community.

The puppies all have been adopted. However, the mother dog, Mary, is still available for adoption. She is estimated to be about 2 years old and weighs 35 pounds. NCAS staff said she is very gentle and kind and is already house broken. To learn more about Mary, please visit the Shelter’s website.

***Updated September 30, 2020, per Nassau County PIO Sabrina Robertson.  The dogs are a mixed breed, not rare, as originally reported.
