Shelter Pet of the Week: Riley

Shelter Pet of the Week: Riley


MEET RILEY! Currently available for adoption at Kent Animal Shelter is Riley! What a story this dog could tell if only he could talk. This supersweet 2-year-old Shepherd/Lab mix was rescued in Texas where things weren’t so good. Now he’s ready to leave the past behind him and start over in New York.

Once he knows you, he just loves you and won’t leave your side. Due to his hard life in Texas, he does have an old injury to one of his hind legs that is not able to be fixed. However, he still LOVES to go for short little walks. All Riley wants is a home where he will be loved and cared for — is that too much to ask?

Kent Animal Shelter, located at 2259 River Road in Calverton, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week. For more information on Riley and other adoptable pets at Kent, visit or call 631-727-5731. Photo courtesy of Kent Animal Shelter
