Only one dog left from Sandy who needs a home!

  • Emergency pet shelter has found homes for more than 500 pets affected by Hurricane Sandy
  • A Rottweiler named Bruno is the only animal left
  • Shelter will be closing its doors this weekend
A Rottweiler named Bruno was displaced during Hurricane Sandy and still needs a home.

More than 500 pets displaced by Hurricane Sandy have found homes. But there's one dog left who still needs a loving family -- and time is ticking.

Bruno is a 7-year-old male rottweiler who is the last animal at the Nassau Emergency Pet Shelter in Long Island, New York. His owner not only lost his home but also his job, so he can't take care of Bruno. And the shelter is being forced to close its doors this weekend.

"Bruno is a devoted dog," said Gary Rogers, a spokesman for the Nassau County SPCA, on the group's website. "He has a strong and sometimes stubborn rottweiler personality that would fit best with an owner who understands the breed, but he becomes a loveable puppy around the people he really knows and trusts. He has had a very difficult last few months and we are desperate to find him a happy ending."

If you are interested in adopting Bruno or can provide foster care for a short period of time, please can call the Nassau Emergency Pet Shelter at 516-272-0017 or email them at
