    An emergency shelter for Long Island pets left homeless by Sandy has closed and the last dog has been moved. Katherine Creag reports.

    The Rottweiler's owner lost his home in Long Beach during the storm and was unable to care for him.

    Bruno was the last remaining dog at an emergency shelter for Long Island pets left homeless by Sandy.

    The shelter closed earlier this month and Bruno was moved to Northwind Kennels in Bedford, in Westchester County.

    The kennel's owner, Penny Smith-Berk, said hundreds of people emailed offering to adopt Bruno.

    A total of 515 pets were housed in the emergency shelter in the weeks and months after Sandy.
