Long-time Brookhaven Animal Shelter Resident Finds a Home

Floral Park couple adopts Mary, a canine who has called the Town shelter home the past three years.

Mary is home. Finally.

After spending three years at the Brookhaven Animal Shelter, and earning the title of longest resident, the four-year-old canine is now living with a Floral Park couple.

Patch called the shelter today to get the heart-warming details of the adoption, and will provide how it all came about as soon as possible.

For now though, you can see some great pictures of Mary on her ride home, the loving couple who adopted her and all the well-wishers' comments as Mary, whose last name is now D'Dogue, has her own Facebook page.

The adoption came after a very heart-felt plea by animal shelter leaders, a special VIP event where Mary was the special guest of the Blue Point Brewing Company and Woof Stock, a shelter event held this past weekend. Patch wrote about the effort and it was clear Mary had plenty of people rooting for her to be adopted.

We adopted our dog "Finnegan" (now known as Cyrus ) - after him living at the Brookhaven Animal Shelter for 1 1/2 years. He has been a wonderful addition to our family. Kudos to the couple who adopted him - he's been waiting a long time for you!
