Amber and Bianca

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

Looking for a pair of feline friends to brighten your day? Look no further than Bianca and Amber! These bonded buddies have been through so much together, waiting for their purrfect home is nothing! You can find them frolicking in the Cat Habitat with friends, taking the shyer cats under their wings.

Bianca is the welcoming committee, greeting all new friends—human and feline—to her wonderful world. Amber is a quiet observer until treats and toys come into play. Then watch out: she’ll leap straight into your heart!

As much as they enjoy making friends, these loyal besties always come back to each other. At just 1-year-old, they have never known a home as wonderful as the Habitat, and they have no idea that being home will exceed their wildest dreams. Their ideal setting is one with children 10+ in age who can help them settle in.

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

Everybody wants more money, so head down to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and get yourself some! Money first came into the shelter as an owner surrender in December 2014. His owner decided they wanted him back, but then he came in again as a stray in February 2018.

This time though, his owner didn’t come back for him. Staff and volunteers are so sad to see him back again, but now it’s his turn to find his true forever home! Money is extra cute (as you can see by his picture) and has a personality to match.

He is friendly with people and playful with other dogs. He loves to play with toys and knows the command “sit” – there’s no doubt he can learn more.

If you are interested in giving Money the home he deserves, call 516-785-5220, email [email protected] or visit 3320 Beltagh Ave. in Wantagh.

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

Cole (reference #170647) was surrendered to the shelter with his litter mate, Bear, when their owner who, found them as babies, was unable to find homes for them on her own. Cole is a black, 8-month-old domestic short haired male that is ready like spaghetti for adoption. Cole has been neutered, up to date on all his vaccines and is microchipped.

Bear (reference #170646) is also an 8-month-old domestic short hair who is neutered, up to date on all his vaccines, microchipped, single and ready to mingle!

What both of these boys need is a chance to finally be adopted into a family that will love and care for them forever. For more information about adopting Cole and Bear, call the Town of Oyster Bay Animal Shelter at 516-677-5784.


Available for adoption at The Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter:

Marshmallow is a 10-year-old Bichon Frise/Lhasa Apso mix that came to the shelter after his owner passed away. He is a funny little guy that likes to dance for treats! Marshmallow gets along with other dogs but does have the tendency to guard toys and treats from them.

For this reason, he is best recommended for a home without children. Marshmallow on most days feels cuddly and wants to be near you, but some days he wakes up on the “wrong side of the bed” and wants to just hang out by himself. Whoever adopts him must understand this about him, but there’s no doubt he would make a great companion to someone in a quiet household.

Call 516-944-8220 for more information on adopting Marshmallow!boboAvailable for adoption at Last Hope Animal Rescue in Wantagh:

How about adopting a kitty with his own fan club! Bobbo arrived at Last Hope two days before Christmas with several litters from a hoarding situation. Bobbo was 6-weeks-old and undernourished when he arrived. Bobbo is still a tiny guy at 4-months-old now, but what he lacks in size, he more than makes up what in purrrsonality.

Bobbo is a sweet and loveable cat who has become a volunteer favorite. Check out his webpage, lasthopeanimalrescue.org, to learn more about adopting him today

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