GLEN COVE - Two Glen Cove organizations have partnered to host a special event to help animals find forever homes.

February is American Heart Month and to celebrate, the YMCA of Glen Cove is hosting an adoption event called Puppy Love.

The YMCA is working with the Animal Lovers League of Glen Cove, a local animal shelter.

Lisa Napoli, the shelter's director, says representatives from the shelter are on hand to educate potential owners about cat and dog ownership and the commitment it takes to own a pet.
