Year in Review: 'Pet of the Week' Helps Find Animals Homes

Our weekly profiles of stray animals put a spotlight on the local animal shelter.

As part of our 2011 Year in Review, we have to give props to writer and animal advocate

Starting in early February, this gal “interviewed” and profiled over 40 animals at the the in Cutchogue and in Southold for our “Pet of the Week” feature. And out of the 39 town shelter animals profiled, only 15 have not yet been adopted — and most of those animals have only recently been profiled.

That’s about a 60 percent success rate so far.

“This has been a particularly good year for us,” said office manager Gabby Glantzman. “Dogs that have been here for a while got adopted — we’ve done very well with cats too.”

Here are some lists and links to the stories of animals profiled in 2011 by order of story date.
