Henry; Supervisor Schaffer; Receiver of Taxes Corinne DiSomma; Town Clerk Carol Quirk; Joanne Anderson and Letty Canals of Last Hope; Town Animal Shelter Director Chris Elton; Councilwoman Jacqueline Gordon; Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez; and Councilman Tom Donnelly. 

Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer recently joined with members of the Town Board to recognize Last Hope Animal Rescue for their continued hard work in providing services to the Town of Babylon Animal Shelter. 

For years, Last Hope has worked with the shelter to help find new homes for abandoned animals, assist with adoptions, trap and neuter feral cats, provide veterinary services, and offer free rabies vaccine clinics to pets in the area. 

Representatives from Last Hope were invited to a surprise ceremony at Town Hall, where they were presented with an official Town Proclamation thanking them for their service and also were given a photo book put together by the Babylon Town Animal Shelter of the dogs and one cat that Last Hope adopted from the shelter in 2013.

The Town of Babylon Animal Shelter is located at 51 Lamar Street in West Babylon and provides pet adoption services to Town residents, while also serving as a home to displaced animals in need. In order to provide the best care for those animals living in the shelter, donations of supplies are always welcome. For information on how to donate supplies, volunteer or adopt, visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/BabylonAnimalShelter or call them at (631) 643-9270.

Gee, too bad that this rescue did not educate the Town Shelter that they should do more for spay and neuter for the Town's residents and also that giving away cats and kittens without a thoroughly checked cat application is not responsible rescue by any stretch. And Last Hope needs to do a LOT more in terms of educating the public about FIV+ cats. They recently had a wonderful opportunity to do just that and they failed miserably. That is not only disappointing but shameful.

Last Hope and the Town of Babylon animal shelter has helped abandoned cats and dogs find homes and has helped sick animals for many years and they should be commended for their efforts.
