8 Cats, Dogs That Will Fill Your Home With Love


There’s a great group of animals available for adoption this week, so check out these adorable cats and dogs who are ready to go home with you today!

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

If you’re looking for a handsome fella to swoop in and steal your heart, meet Ollie. He arrived at the shelter as a stray in December 2016 after being found on the streets near Hofstra University. This 3-year-old pup is neurological and walks with a gait, which becomes more exaggerated when he gets excited, but this condition certainly doesn’t hold him back.

Ollie is a silly, sweet, happy and playful boy who deserves so much to be with people who are going to love him and care for him. He is house trained, friendly with dogs and people and loves to watch cars and trucks go by. Ollie’s ideal home would be with savvy owners who will understand him and make him feel happy and safe. 

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


Available for adoption at the Little Shelter in Huntington:

Sweet 3-year-old Nina is had a rough start, but she is on her way to becoming the pampered little princess she deserves to be. She is partially paralyzed, but don’t tell her that. She doesn’t see herself any different than any other dog.

In fact, she’s probably one of the happiest dogs you’ll ever meet. Nothing stops her. She’s all about love and kisses, belly rubs and ear scratches.

Thanks to the hard work of staff and volunteers, after months of daily therapy and exercise, she has been regaining some use of her back legs. Recently, she was even fitted for a wheel cart that will allow her to walk for longer periods as she continues to strengthen her back legs. A home experienced with special needs pets would be awesome for Nina, but a home with willingness and time to learn how to help Nina through everyday situations, like potty breaks, would be just as good. 


Mocha is an eager to please Shih-Tzu around 9 years old who came to the shelter from a large city shelter. He is hoping for the easy life with dreams of filling his days with people to love and cuddle, yummy food and of course plenty of laps to curl up on. Can you give Mocha his fresh start?  


Pieces is a super-sweet kitty who will love you to pieces! She eagerly follows staff members around the Little Shelter cattery looking for someone to pet her. She is a super snuggler who is always up for being cuddled but also loves to play with toys and chase lasers. Pieces is a beautiful kitty with a great disposition suitable for most any household. 

Billy The Kid

Does it surprise you that Billy The Kid wants to steal your heart? He loves getting attention from all the staff and volunteers at Little Shelter. He likes getting his chin scratched and sitting on the laps of volunteers who spend time with him. Billy enjoys getting treats of turkey and playing with toys or chasing a laser pointer. 

For more information on adopting Nina, Mocha, Pieces and Billy the Kid, call 631-368-8770, or visit 33 Warner Rd., Huntington.


Available for Adoption with Last Hope Animal Rescue:

If you’re in the market for an awesome new kitten, you are in luck! Reggie is the newest Last Hope kitten at their satellite adoption center at the Petsmart on Merrick Road in Bellmore. At about 5-months-old, Reggie is a happy kitten extraordinaire who is single and ready to mingle!

For more information about adopting Reggie, contact Petsmart/Last Hope Rescue at 2410 Merrick Road, Bellmore.


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

Wait until you hear about Coal! This sweet as sugar 5-year-old domestic short hair male was surrendered to the shelter when his owner passed away. He is exceptionally sweet and lovable, the kind of cat that solicits your attention and gives back so much love in return.

Coal is surely missing having a loving home and the care and affection that comes with being part of a family. Chances are, if you come down to meet this very lovable boy you will surely fall in love with him. Coal is up to date on all his vaccines, neutered and micro chipped. 

For more information about adopting Coal, call 516-677-5784.jadoo e1523643241244

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

Jadoo’s 15-year-old life was turned upside down when he found himself in a local municipal shelter. Thankfully, the Animal League America team rescued him just in time and gave him a safe quiet place to call his until his new family discovers him. He’s a robust senior who has a clean bill of health.

His only request is that he be in a quiet home with no other pets. For now, he is content to receive chin rubs and treats from trusted new friends. He misses having a human to call his own and with windows to gaze out of all day long. If you have these simple things to offer him, he would be eternally grateful for his second chance.

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