Shorty and Misty Among Dogs, Cats Seeking Homes on Long Island

Misty and Shorty
Misty and Shorty are looking for their forever homes.

Old or young, there’s no shortage of homeless animals that are ready to be adopted on Long Island. Read all about how to adopt Shorty and Misty right here!

Sadly, local shelters often have large numbers of senior cats and dogs who are unable to find loving homes due to their age. But studies show that senior animals are often calmer, gentler and likely already trained — a perfect companion for a quieter home.

With that said, it’s my pleasure to introduce Shorty. Shorty is a tiny fellow (less than 16 pounds) and resembles a Shiba Inu mix painted in Pomeranian rust. At 10 years old, Shorty was rescued as an older stray at a dangerous traffic intersection in Wyandanch.

Thanks to the Town of Babylon Shelter, Shorty has been provided extensive dental work (17 teeth were extracted) and has also been neutered. Shorty is described as friendly, energetic and enjoys meeting new people and other dogs. He has a prance in his step, and looks forward to stepping into a loving home soon.

On the flip side of the age bracket, meet Misty. Here’s a tongue twister…Misty is a kitten who had kittens this kitten season. It is believed that her offspring were placed in homes but Misty continues to wait for her forever family. Misty is sweet and adorable, spayed and ready to leave the shelter and go home!

As always, thanks for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop…pass it on!
