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
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
firstname.lastname@example.org to verify they are actually
working on our behalf.
