It's not just a spring fling -- it's a match made in heaven! Their great smiles show you that Cami (left) and Dallas are the best of friends. They have a slight age difference -- Cami is about 2 years old, while Dallas is about 6 months -- and they could care less! They play like they've known each other their whole lives. Cami has a lovely white coat, and Dallas' is black and white. She's so lovable, her nose is even shaped like a heart! They're spayed, microchipped and up to date on their shots, and ready to go home with you. If you're interested in growing your household, please consider adopting Cami and Dallas. Two dogs can be better than one, since you'll know they get along great together and can keep themselves entertained while also giving you double the love. To thank you for your kindness, Nassau Humane Society will sponsor one of their adoption fees so they can go to a loving home together. Please come meet Cami and Dallas!


Nassau Humane Society’s goal is to place our animals in their forever homes and in order to do this, we need to make sure that the dog or cat and the family are well matched. Our application process is necessary to achieve this goal. There are many variables that go into making these decisions so we review each adoption on a case by case basis. Our staff will respond to applications and inquiries via emails and phone calls as quickly as possible.

Here are some of our adoption policies:


  • Walk-ins are welcome during our hours of operation.

  • We do same day adoptions IF the pet is a good fit for your family. We strongly encourage you to submit an adoption application prior to your visit to help with the process. During busy adoption hours it may take much longer if the application has to be filled out and reviewed at that time.

  • While most of our available animals are at the facility, some that you see on the website may be in foster care.

  •  We want all members of the household (including current canines) to come and meet the dog when adopting so that we can be sure you have the perfect fit for your home.

  • Veterinarian records will be checked for all existing pets in the household. If your pet is not up to date on vaccinations or heartworm preventative, your adoption application will be denied.

  • If an animal has “special requests” such as a fence or no small children in the house, these guidelines will not be excused for any reason.

Nassau Humane Society reserves the right to refuse to adopt to anyone for any reason.
