Paris, a young pit bull mix with a spunky personality, had been at the Smithtown Animal Shelter in New York for several months before the Director of the shelter reached out to Hounds Town Charities and Mike Gould for help. As a hyper young pup, Paris had been adopted and returned several times. Her recent visit to the shelter was her last shot at a forever home. After several months with Mike and the charity staff learning manners, Paris was adopted by a loving family right before graduation. She now enjoys the life she always deserved!
In November 2015, Hounds Town Charities reached out to a local veterinary hospital to offer behavioral rehabilitation services to this former bait dog, who had been surrendered by his owner after severe neglect and abuse. Bound by his feet and left outdoors with little access to food or water for months, Cappuccino nearly lost his life. Medical staff were unsure they could save his legs. After months of recuperation, and a long stay at Hounds Town Charities, Cappuccino now enjoys his favorite activity: running with the legs he almost lost. Cappuccino is still up for adoption.
Who knew that two dogs labeled dog aggressive would end up becoming best friends during their time with Hounds Town Charities! Dill, a Town of Brookhaven dog, was teetering dangerously close to the edge of being put down for behavioral issues including leash aggression. Volunteers and advocates at the shelter reached out to Mike for help and soon after, Dill began the charity's in-house rehabilitation program. After a few bumps in the road, months of training, and support from fellow homeless dog Cappuccino, Dill was adopted a few weeks after graduating our program. His family understands how to manage him properly, which is all Dill needed to be the dog he was meant to be.
Resident HTC Dogs Up For Adoption: Diamond & Spike
After 7 YEARS in a local no-kill shelter, Hounds Town Charities stepped up to rescue this senior Akika mix. With kennel, leash, and dog aggression issues as well his age, Joe had a long list of things stacked against him. It wasn't until after he arrived at out facility that we realized Joe is nearly completely deaf, a fact that undoubtedly contributed to his misunderstood behavior issues. Today Joe lives with Jackie, a Hounds Town Charities volunteer, because she just couldn't bear life without this guy.  

Diamond was taken in by HTC in 2013, after she was picked up as a stray by the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. She has been living at Hounds Town USA ever since.

Spike was surrender to HTC by a state department employee who was reassigned to an overseas embassy which banned dogs! Because of behavioral issues, he has been living at Hounds Town USA for the past 4+ years.

Both dogs have been through Hounds Town University's Obedience programs.

These two fur-riends are the best of pals! They would love to be adopted together, but any home would do. They've been homless for so many years now and deserve a family of their own.
