Literally a life saver, the Mend-A-Paw fund was specifically established to pay for all medical and surgical needs of shelter dogs that would not be covered by the Town of North Hempstead's shelter budget. Many of these dogs would have been considered unadoptable due to health issues, some serious and some not. Instead all have found a home. To date, the Mend-a-Paw fund has spent tens of thousands of dollars for antibiotics, diagnostic testing, a variety of surgeries and even covers routine testing for heartworm.
