Adoptable Dogs

This page shows a number of dogs which are currently available for adoption.

If you are interested in adopting a dog, please be aware of the following:

The adoption process consists of the application, the phone interview, and a home visit. We have very limited resources for home visits that are out of state or too far upstate. We do make an effort to do them but often the wait is quite long and there are times when we are unable to do them. Please apply to your local rescue as they might be able to assist you better.

As a matter of policy to protect the privacy of people involved in all phases of adoption, LIGRR volunteers do not give out personal phone numbers or email addresses. If you are contacted by someone from a personal email or phone, please call LIGRR at 516-578-3803 or email us at ligrr@yahoo.com to verify they are actually working on our behalf.

Felicia is about seven years old she was surrendered by a family to a small private shelter in Turkey. The family was moving and couldn't take her. The family had found the dog 2-3 years ago in their village. She was on the street looking for food around the garbage bins. They kept the dog in their garden and surrendered her 3 months ago. She is very calm and friendly. She will be arriving shortly from Turkey.

Dog From Turkey

Felix

Age: 6 Years
Gender: Male

Felix

Felix is approximately 6 years old. He was found in the forest, in Turkey, a few months ago sitting in mud after severe rain and flooding. Looking at his chip # we can presume that he was released by a municipal shelter at least 3-4 years ago after being neutered. Presumably some people took care of him for a while as he couldn't have survived in the forest without care. He was treated for ehrlicia and is now fine. He had open wounds that looked to be from dog bites. After all he went through he is very loving and social. Goldens are really amazing! He will be arriving her in the next few weeks.
