                 There is no better way to count your blessings this season than by celebrating “Pups-Giving” with the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and the folks at the Coral House Caterers.  Supervisor Don Clavin and the beloved Baldwin dining and catering establishment have joined forces to help make the pet adoption experience easier and more cost-effective than ever…and “delicious,” too!   Supervisor Clavin has announced that America’s largest township is waiving pet adoption fees through November 23rd, Thanksgiving Eve.  Making the offer even more irresistible, the Coral House is offering dinner for two at its Thanksgiving Day banquet on November 24th for those who adopt a “fur-ever” friend. Also participating in the “Pups-Giving” adoption announcement were Deputy Supervisor Dorothy Goosby, Councilman Anthony D’Esposito, Councilman Dennis Dunne, Sr., Councilman Tom Muscarella, Councilman Chris Carini, Councilwoman Missy Miller, Town Clerk Kate Murray, Receiver of Taxes Jeanine Driscoll and Coral House owner and President Butch Yamali.

                  “This year, I am combining two things that I really love for the holidays,” said Supervisor Clavin. “Thanksgiving and free pet adoption are coming together to create the best fall holiday, ‘Pups-Giving’. Come on down to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter, adopt a free pet and get a sumptuous Thanksgiving for dinner for two at the spectacular Coral House. You can’t beat that deal.”

                  “Don Clavin is a great Supervisor, and I am so excited that he has given the Coral House the opportunity to join with the town to find forever homes for some furry friends,” said Yamali. “I can’t wait to serve up some free dinners at the Coral House for animal lovers who step up and adopt a free pet during the ‘Pups-Giving’ season.”

                  “I want to thank Butch Yamali for partnering with the town to help us adopt loving cats and dogs,” said Goosby.  “I encourage everyone to come down to the Town’s animal shelter and adopt a pet today.” 

                  “I have to say that ‘Pups-Giving’ is one of my favorite holidays,” commented D’Esposito.  “There’s no other holiday that combines free ‘furry’ love and a complimentary dinner.”

                  “The Hempstead Town animal shelter is making it easier than ever to adopt a pet,” stated Dunne.  “You’ll never regret opening your heart and your home to a loving animal.”

                  “At first, I didn’t even know what ‘Pups-Giving’ was, but now it is at the top of my holiday list,” said Muscarella.  “I am going to tell my friends and family to visit the Town’s animal shelter this season.”

                  “I am a pet lover,” announced Carini. “No pet should be alone during the holiday season, so c’mon down to the Hempstead animal shelter and bring a new furry member of your family home.”

                  “My family has been blessed with both cats and dogs,” stated Miller.  “Pets enrich our lives, offer unconditional love and just make the holiday season special.”   

                  The Hempstead Town “Pups-Giving” event waives all pet adoption fees, saving adopters more than $100!  What’s more, the value of the complimentary Thanksgiving dinner at the Coral House is just over $110 for a couple.  Moreover, the “Pups-Giving” holiday event is a value packed holiday event filled with savings, good food and the abiding love of a “fur-ever” friend.

                  “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this Fall than by making ‘Pups-Giving’ part of your reason for the holiday season,” concluded Clavin.  “Visit the animal shelter today and adopt a cuddly, cute and furry family member and enjoy a holiday meal…for free!”
