On September 1, 2000, Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center opened its doors in Port Jefferson Station, New York. In order to continually improve the shelter, we began building a beautiful walkway and garden named after our favorite Neapolitan Mastiff, “Waldo”. Waldo was rescued from a cruel life and this Walk of Hope is dedicated in his honor. It signifies the hope that we all share, that all animals will be adopted into loving homes.
You can be part of the Walk of Hope by purchasing a personalized brick in support of Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center. The bricks will be installed as part of our a permanent walking path entrance to our center.
All donations are tax-deductible and will be used to help support the Center and its programs.
Use this beautiful gesture to honor a loved one, beloved pet, celebrate a special occasion or make a personal statement.
Paws of War
Paws of War trains and places rescued dogs to serve and provide independence to our United States military veterans who suffer the emotional effects of war. We work to provide independence to these military veterans. Most of our rescued dogs have been abandoned at shelters through no fault of their own. Every dog is trained for a specific veteran to fulfill his or her needs. Some veterans affected by PTSD need a sense of protection and security that only a service dog can provide. Service dogs can be trained to retrieve items for a wheelchair bound veteran, or help with balance for a veteran suffering from TBI (traumatic brain injury). Other veterans require an emotional support dog and others simply want a comfort/companion animal. Animals have been a proven method of supplying emotional support and service to people of all walks of life and are indeed some of the best holistic remedies for wellness. All dogs are evaluated prior to training and specifically matched up with a veteran. The veteran is involved in the training process. All training and initial veterinary costs are absorbed by Paws of War.
