Between kitten season, rescues, surrenders and out-of-state transfers, Long Island shelters are packed with thousands of adorable animals who are more than ready to find their forever home. Here are just a few of some of the cutest animals available for adoption today!


Available for adoption at Little Shelter:

Tronky is a sweet 5-month-old Lab/Terrier mix who arrived from Puerto Rico through Little Shelter’s Passage to Freedom Program. Tronky is a very loving and laidback pup that prefers to seek out affection and stick by your side. He is all ready for his new home and would thrive with a few obedience classes to help this little guy put his best paw forward! Tronky would be a good fit for most households and wouldn’t mind having some furry siblings.


Pieces is a super sweet torti kitty who loves affection and people. She has a slight head tilt due to an ear infection from when she was younger, but this doesn’t slow her down and only adds to her cute personality! Pieces likes to follow her favorite people around the cattery and jumps on high shelves so she can always be eye level with you. She is an avid fan of turkey and is very playful chasing catnip nice and laser pointers. Pieces is definately one of a kind and will be your best friend who’s always by your side.

For more information about adopting Tronky and Pieces, contact Little Animal Rescue & Adoption Center at 33 Warner Rd., Huntington, or 631-368-8770.


Available for adoption at the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter:

Gary is a merry old soul who loves to be brushed and showered with affection. He enjoys being treated like a king (because he genuinely believes he is a king). He likes lounging by the window and watching the world go by. Gary will answer to his name and likes to come over to visitors to greet them and get affection. He is a sweet gentleman who’s looking for someone special to spend his golden years with.

josie 1

Josie is a beautiful 9-month-old kitten who loves being held, cuddled, and played with. She will stay with you all day, and genuinely just loves getting affection. She’s very good with other cats and although she does prefer being the center of attention, she is also laid back and doesn’t mind sharing the love on every now and then. Who could ask for more?

For more information about adopting Gary and Josie, contact the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter located at 104 Deposit Rd. East Northport or 631-651-9788.

Stan and Marshall

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

When bonded brothers Stan and Marshall (reference #R165294/95) arrived at North Shore Animal League America, they depended on each other to build courage as they became accustomed to their new surroundings. Marshall quickly realized they could depend on their new human friends to take great care of them, and in time, Stan has followed his brother’s lead. These 1 year olds love to frolic and play with their friends in the cage-free habitat, but at the end of the day you can find them settled into a snuggle session with each other as they gaze out the windows, watching birds together.

Stan and Marshall have never known a home; they have no idea what joy awaits them! If you would like to show them the delight of being cherished family members, have a home with children 10 years old and over and adults with cat experience to help navigate them to the next chapter in their lives, please call or head down to meet these sweethearts today!

Contact [email protected] for more information about adopting Stan and Marshall!


Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

When staff and volunteers first laid eyes on Pia, she was alone in a park. No one was around, and it seems as though she was left there on purpose. She isn’t very happy to be at the shelter, but when she is able to play with her buddies, one of her favorite pastimes is to roll around on the grass like a little bug! Pia is looking for a very savvy, adult-only home to help her overcome some fears she has. Pia seems interested in meeting other dogs, so that’s a plus!


Wonderful people often search out animals who are truly in need of a home. Pop is a 14-year-old cat who is as sweet as they come—so sweet that he definitely does not deserve to live the rest of his life out in a shelter. If you or someone you know can open your heart and home to Pop, please call for more information today!

If you are interested in adopting sweet Pia and Pop, call the shelter for more information at 516-785-5220, visit 3320 Beltagh Ave., Wantagh or email [email protected]lacey e1529068968497A Special Request from Last Hope Animal Rescue:

Lacey is an amazing 2-year-old Beagle from a poor Kentucky shelter. She came to Last Hope very pregnant and with a heartworm. Lacey has since had her healthy puppies (who have been adopted) and now Lacey begins the second part of her journey. She would love a “Foster-to-Adopt” home to help bring her to wellness.

She is house-broken (even when caring for her sons), absolutely devoted to her caretaker, obedient, quiet, good with kids & other dogs and loves every new person she meets. Lacey would love to bond with her future forever family while taking her preliminary meds, during her treatments when she will need to stay calm and then wait until she is cleared for spay. Last Hope will pay all medical expenses for heartworm through her spay and 6-month follow-up heartworm test after treatment.

For more information about caring for, fostering or adopting Lacey, contact Last Hope at 631-946-9528.


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

In just a short time this smiley, snuggly boy has stolen the hearts of nearly everybody involved with the shelter. 6-year-old King was surrendered to the shelter after his family was no longer able to care for him and has now been a resident for more than two months. King is playful but respectful, is smart as a whip, and loves cuddle. King does well with kids and while not tested with other dogs yet, he seems fine when they pass by. This literally makes King the perfect addition to just about any home!

For more information about adopting King, contact the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter for more information at 516-944-8220.

Magoo e1529069178131

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

Magoo was surrendered to the shelter as his owner was moving. He is a 10-year-old lab mix. He is such a good dog.

He loves to play with toys. Magoo does not belong in a shelter. He needs a loving home where he can continue to be a loving companion.

smokey 1

Smokey is a 10-year-old domestic short hair, gray gal that was surrendered to the shelter when her owner could no longer care for her. She is shy and timid but is very lovable. She is longing for the love and attention she has received her whole life.

It is so hard for any pet to be in a shelter but imagine living your whole life feeling safe and sound only to be uprooted and end up living in a shelter. Staff and volunteers really hope to find a new family for Smokey so she can return to the happy girl we know she is.

If you are interested in adopting Magoo or Smokey, call 516-677-5784 or visit 150 Miller Pl., Syosset.

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