With so many cute dogs and cats available for adoption this week, it’s hard to choose which one to take home. Read all about how to adopt some of the cutest cats and dogs on Long Island right here!

Available for adoption at the Little Shelter in Huntington:


Meet this Shelter Director’s Pet of the week, Brynn, a gorgeous 8-year-old Pit mix who has been a resident of the Little Shelter since June 2017. She is a true cuddle bug who loves snuggling up with her favorite people. She enjoys playing with stuffed toys and going on nice walks through the woods.

For the month of February, Brynn’s adopter will be sent home with a month’s supply of food (which she loves), a great big basket of toys, a big fluffy dog bed, a free vet visit and specially priced adoption fee, so long as the adopter meets all Little Shelter adoption standards. She is spayed, up to date on all her vaccinations and microchipped! 


Murry is a sweet 11-year-old Poodle mix with lots of love to give. While he enjoys spending much of the day napping, he loves going on walks and making new friends. He even has a special little hop dance he does to get people to pet him-it doesn’t get much cuter than that!! This sweet, happy-go-lucky boy would be a great companion for anyone.


This humble fellow is Peanut, who originally arrived at the Little Shelter with his two brothers when their owner passed away. Both his brothers have since been adopted and now it’s Peanuts turn to find his forever home. Peanut loves getting affection, especially chin scratches and will look up at you with pleading eyes to cuddle with him.

He is a quiet cat despite his larger size and very nimble jumping up the cat trees to take a nap. He has spent almost his entire life in a home and would be a great companion to any lucky family. Come to Little Shelter and meet this adorable chunk of love today!

For more information on adopting Brynn, Murry or Peanut, call the Little Shelter at 631-368-8770, or visit 33 Warner Rd., Huntington.

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh:


At 2 1/2 years old, Suge sure has been through a lot and he is surely ready for life to get good! Suge came to the shelter as a stray in June 2016. Poor Suge required emergency surgery because he had a corn on the cob in his digestive track that was causing him major issues.

He was returned to his owner, only to be surrendered to us because  they couldn’t afford him. As per his previous owner, he is house-trained and crate trained and knows the
commands “sit”, “stay”, “down” and “come”. Suge is also friendly with people and is said to have lived with  people of all ages. Suge is such a good boy that he is currently an office dog, and is as sweet as pie!

He is very quiet, doesn’t mind being in crate, and just LOVES attention and affection. Suge will need slow  intros with other dogs. If you are interested in adopting Suge, call 516-785-5220, visit 3320 Beltagh Ave., Wantagh or email [email protected]

Available for adoption at The Town of Oyster Bay Animal Shelter:


How cute is Suds?! Suds (reference #170586) came to the shelter as a stray in mid-October. He is a white and black very handsome male that is now neutered and up to date on all his vaccines.

He also has a microchip so he will never be lost again. When he came to the shelter he was very scared but after some TLC, he has made such a turnaround and now he loves to be with people. Suds is only 3 years old and would love to be with a family he can finally call his own. 


Little Spanky (reference #180022) was found as a stray and brought to the shelter in mid-January. It was one of the very cold nights and he was crying and sitting all alone. Thankfully a good Samaritan brought him to the shelter.

Spanky is estimated to be just about 2 years old. He is a happy, healthy, domestic short haired male that has been given the VIP treatment like any animal that comes to the Town of Oyster Bay Animal shelter. Spanky even gets along great with other cats too. He is ready to find a warm, safe place that he can call home so head down and visit this cutie pie today!

For more information about adopting Suds or Spanky, call the Town of Oyster Bay Animal Shelter at 516-677-5784.

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington:

This 7-year-old stunner is none other than Tutu (reference #BF1345). Tutu was locally rescued and is waiting patiently for her human. This tortie hopes for an experienced cat parent who will patiently navigate her through the transition to her true home, one with older children and no other pets. She will rule your heart if you offer her a safe place to spend her forever in a loving home.
