Since the Glen Cove public dog park opening ceremony in December, RXR Realty’s The Beacon at Garvies Point has continued to establish the area as a dog-friendly community.
In partnership with the North Shore Animal League America, The Beacon hosted a pet adoption event on Feb. 13 in celebration of Valentine’s Day. All 12 dogs were adopted that day.
NSALA’s mobile “shelter on wheels” with adoptable dogs was parked at the lot besides the Garvies Point dog park for the event. To ensure the safety of participants, mobile shelter visits were by appointment only, with sanitization taking place between visitors, all of whom were required to wear masks and practice social distancing.
The mobile shelter has windows on one side so that visitors were able to see the adoptable animals without entering the unit and volunteers were able to bring older, “veteran” dogs to enjoy the dog park.
