There’s never a shortage of adoptable animals on Long Island, and this week is no different.
Whether you are adopting for the first time or already own a pet, be sure to keep them safe this July 4th week. With fireworks continuing throughout the weekend, the Nassau County SPCA would like to remind everyone to leave your pet indoors (not leashed in the yard) in a safe, secure, escape-proof house with a comfy bed, food and water.
It is always advised to stay home with your pet, but if your pet is left alone, lower the blinds and turn on the TV or radio at normal volume to keep your pet company. This will help to disguise those terrifying loud fireworks noises. Also make sure all doors, doggy doors, windows, and gates are closed and locked securely.
Available for adoption at Babylon Town Shelter
The meaning of the name Simba is “lion” and this Simba is an adorable and strong kitty who is in need of a home of his own. He was adopted as a kitten but returned when he was diagnosed with a heart condition. At just 3 years young, Simba loves to be pet, is quite adventurous, and even more importantly, lives life to the fullest. Simba takes meds for his heart ailment in the morning with no issues. If you’re looking to save the life of a most deserving cat, contact the shelter at 631-643-9270 or 51 Lamar St., West Babylon.

Two-year-old Spotsie is an adorable cattle dog mix who comes to Long Island from a high-kill shelter down south. Spotsie is a gal who loves life and would love it even more if she had a family to share it with. She is good with most dogs and is even housebroken! Make Spotsie your new bestie today!

Panda (reference #180256) is so curious as to why she is in the shelter and not in a loving home. Poor Panda was surrendered when her owner fell ill and she definitely misses the comfort of her own home. Panda is a gorgeous and very friendly 3-year-old domestic shorthair looking to start the next chapter in her life.
If you’re looking for the purrrfect companion, adopt Mr. Fibbs (reference #180276)! Mr. Fibbs was also surrendered when his owner could no longer care for him, which is a shame, since Mr. Fibbs is an extremely sweet and playful boy who loves people even more than he loves toys (and that’s a lot!). Head down and meet this fella today!
If you are interested in adopting Panda or Mr. Fibbs, call 516-677-5784 or visit at 150 Miller Pl., Syosset.

Appropriately named, Moose is a big baby. Moose will stay in your lap and never leave once he gets comfortable. He literally won’t move. It’s like he turns into a rock. He loves everybody he meets and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He greets everyone with a meow and unlimited love.
Elizabeth is a sweet gentle cat who eagerly looks for affection. She likes to play peek-a-boo with visitors, diving in and out of the cat tree while mewing for you to pet her. Her eyes follow you pleadingly around the room waiting to be petted. Elizabeth likes to snuggle close to people and would be a cat that would always stick to your side.
For more information about adopting Moose and Elizabeth, contact the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter located at 104 Deposit Rd., East Northport or 631-651-9788.

Pipa is the total package! She’s adorable, affectionate and as smart as they come. She knows commands like sit, down, come, and paw! Pipa was found tied to a tree at a nearby school, but thankfully she is safe and waiting patiently for her forever family at the shelter. Pipa will need slow intros with dogs her size and would do best in a household without other small dogs. If Pipa is your gal, contact the shelter for more information today!
Who doesn’t love a pair of cute kitty siblings? Bob and Daisy are 10-year-old cats surrendered to the shelter when their owner lost their home. Bob loves belly rubs and Daisy is a social butterfly who loves attention from everyone she meets!
