Attention animal lovers: There are plenty of sweet dogs and cats ready to make your home their forever home. Read all about finding your new best friend right here!


Available for adoption at Almost Home Animal Rescue:

Maggie is a gorgeously very sweet 3-year-old kitty that is looking for nothing more than a home of her own where she can be loved and petted by her humans. Maggie is good around people and other cats, she is super affectionate and would really make a wonderful housecat.


Pistachio is a very special 3-year-old Mastiff mix that was rescued through Almost Home’s Training Wheels program. He spent his whole life outside living in a pen and when the laws changed regarding outside dogs, he was surrendered instead of being brought inside. Pistachio loves other dogs, walks great on a leash and is a big goofball. Pistachio will need slow introductions as he is a bit fearful of men. Let’s help Pistachio find the loving home he finally deserves!

For more information about adopting Maggie and Pistachio, contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at or call 631-627-3665.


Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

Faye is not only a pleasure to be around, she’s a bright as they come! This 8 years old pitty is crate trained and house broken. She loves to sit outside and feel the summer breeze and enjoys getting rubbed behind her ears like nobody’s business.

With her great personality, this gal gives kisses and is more than happy to sit at your feet in the grass. Faye is social and friendly with other dogs and will do best with a calm and relaxed canine. Call or head down to meet her today.


Bernie is a sweet fella. This 9-year old Jack Russel is looking for an experienced home with teens/adults. Bernie does have some guarding issues and he’s a little nervous with handling, so a home without young children is best. Bernie is super cute and with the right home and handler, he will thrive!

If you are interested in Faye or Bernie, call the shelter for more information at 516-785-5220, visit 3320 Beltagh Ave., Wantagh or email

Papio and Leah

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

Papio and Leah are an unlikely couple who share an interesting, though sometimes difficult life. Papio enjoys a cuddle buddy as he lays in his bed all day, and Leah loves the comfort of her strong handsome companion. These two definitely complete each other.

All they really need is a home to call their own, and a human devoted to nurturing them through their shyness. A quiet place with children ages 10 and up will ensure their adjustment to their first good home will be a happily-ever-after love story for them.


When 5-year-old Leo lost the only home he’d ever known, the Animal League America team came to his rescue. Comfortably adjusting to his new setting, Leo is weary of the sudden changes in his life. We know his next home will have him back to being spoiled in no time. Leo is looking for a gentle, cat experienced cat lover. If you have a quiet loving home to offer this handsome boy, please come meet Leo today!

Available for adoption at Bideawee:

What a delight Tucker is! Boasting a gleaming obsidian coats, golden pips, and a bright, pink tongue, he simply radiates handsome! More than just his good looks, Tucker is also quite charismatic in personality. He really knows how to charm the crowds!

Over-spilling with affection, spirit, and humor, Tucker is hard to resist. His happiness is nearly contagious! Not to mention, he’s also a big mush, that everyone here simply adores. Proficient in obedience, such as “sit,” “down,” “paw,” and other commands, he’s also quite brilliant! Tucker is seeking a mature family that is as gung-ho for life as he is. He’s always ready to go on exploration, fun, or just about anything, and needs a family that shares in all of that.

For more information about Tucker, check out his webpage at


Adorable Pumpkin was found trapped inside of a tire by a Good Samaritan when she just was 4 months old and was brought to Bideawee for housing and care. Pumpkin is a social and excitable Domestic short-hair kitty. She has a great deal of playful, kitten-like energy still!

Pumpkin would be pleased as punch to chase a string around for hours. She is quite the socialite, too, and loves to strut around; she believes that the world is her playground! Pumpkin is quite unique in both personality and creation; she is not only zesty, but she is an uncommon find, as orange female cats are a rarity. She is seeking an equally special home to call her own. Pumpkin tends to become worked up when she receives more attention at one time than she can handle, so she would do best in an adult home with cat-savvy adopters. All Pumpkin needs is a chance with the right family!

SENIOR ALERT: Randy simply has a way of charming everyone he meets! He’s quite a ham! At 17 years young, his pink nose and bright chartreuse eyes only add to his character and good looks.

Randy will happily converse with you about your day, or, if you’re not up for chatting, he’s content to simply cuddle with you while you enjoy the quietude together. Either way, he is a faithful companion and friend, who promises a lifetime of company and love. He has been at Bideawee since 2016 and hopes to find his forever family soon! Please help spread the word about Randy-

Aspen is a 1-year-old precious and beautiful medium-sized pooch who boasts a charming be-speckled coat, and the most endearing eyes. Aspen is a very sweet, but bashful girl, who is seeking a quiet and mature family to call her own. Dog-savvy adopters, who can give her the time, patience, and love she needs to bloom, would be perfect for her.

Aspen would also love to go to a home where there is another dog, too! She truly comes alive around her canine companions and is much more comfortable with friends. For more info about Aspen, check out her webpage
