WANTAGH - The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter, along with the Last Hope Animal Shelter and Rock N’ Rawhide, hosted the third annual Bully Breed Brigade this weekend.

During the event, representatives from the shelters tried to bring awareness to the bully breeds, such as pit bulls or pit mixes. Shelter officials say the breeds often fill shelters on Long Island, but don’t often get adopted. The event is used as a way to show people that those breeds need a loving home just as much as other homeless animals. 

Several shelters and rescue groups from Long Island were at the event to 'showcase' dogs currently up for adoption. Several bands performed throughout the day. And a parade of dogs up for adoption, as well as ones who have been adopted, made its way throughout the event.

The event, which was sponsored by News 12, was held Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh.
