Junie B. Jones has a superpower -- she's a cuddle bug! She has been with us for almost a year, through no fault of her own. She won't hear you call for her because she's deaf, but she will wiggle her back-side right on up to you when she sees you. She even responds to hand commands! She's happy, active and affectionate, and loves to play. She's also very smart, and she's housetrained. She knows how to sit, stay and come with hand signals, and she walks well on her leash. Our staff will be happy to teach you the hand commands and tell you about care and training for this special girl. There are online resources like with lots of information. Junie is medium-sized and about 4 years old. She has a white coat with black markings, including freckles on the back and side of her ears, and a dot on her forehead. She's spayed, microchipped and up to date on her shots, and ready to go home with you. Junie's great smile will lift your spirits even on gloomy days, plus you'll have the great feeling of knowing that you've opened a whole new world for a really wonderful dog. Please come on by the shelter and let us show you why we all love Miss Junie B. Jones!


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.
