Available for adoption at Bideawee:

Love is a gorgeous 2-year-old gal and her name says it all! With her one blue eye and the other brown in color, this unique-looking girl is sure to turn heads when on walks outside. She has so much love to give and is looking for the right companion.

She is not asking for much, just someone that has the energy she has and could take her on long walks and adventures outside. Love could get along with other dogs but needs a slow introduction. Love prefers not to live with young children but might enjoy the company of a teen or older kid.

She loves playing with toys and enjoys rubbing her back on a blanket! Love is nervous around men and would do best with an experienced dog owner who will understand how to make her comfortable around the new men that enter her life. She would thrive outside the city where it’s quiet but with the proper person she may be able to make the Big Apple work as well.

Love is somewhat housebroken but with time and patience she will become trained very soon. A Bideawee supporter also made a generous donation that covers Love’s adoption processing fee! For more information, check out her webpage.

Maggie e1536594516562

Are you looking for a dog that likes to go on long walks and can coexist with your cat? This easy short coated gal may be for you. Maggie is a sweet, independent girl who likes to take long walks just being by your side.

Maggie enjoys receiving affection and belly rubs. She loves the car and is a good traveler Maggie came to Bideawee from Thailand, as a very scared animal not knowing what would happen to her. This beautiful girl has evolved into a lovely dog that is a pleasure to be with. If you like long walks and an easy-going gal, check out her webpage for more info.


Meet Flannel! Donning a fantastic ebony coat, fur of satin, and piercing eyes, it goes without say that Mr. Flannel is one handsome kitty! This 2-year-old, tender-hearted, bashful, and soulful kitty is much like a book that is longing to be read, and just wants someone to invest the time to look into him.

If you give him the dedication he craves, we promise you’ll find majestic adventure, lifelong love, and faithful friendship for all his days. Flannel but needs a chance to be explored! If he sounds like the one, check out his webpage for more information.

Betty Lou
Betty Lou

Ms. Betty Lou is a 3-year-old bashful and beautiful lady who everyone is simply enamored with. A shy little wallflower, it may be easy to overlook her at first, but a deeper look is a worth it. Any keen eye can see the gem that she is.

Her beauty is obvious; with her uniquely marked face, beautiful coat and chartreuse eyes. However, her sweet and gentle ways and acceptable of all love and friends is what enchants most. Check out her webpage.

Available for adoption at Little Shelter:

Special Senior Adoption Alert: There is a lot to be said for life experience. Frank, a 14-year-old Poodle mix, has a lot of wisdom to impart and many stories to tell. This gentleman has impeccable manners and a calm, quiet presence. Frank just needs a bit of assistance to navigate due to blindness, (and loss of an eye), though he can still sense goodness from a mile away.

He doesn’t let his limitation diminish his joy for life, however, and still has a few more chapters left to write in “A Dog’s Guide to Happiness.” Be a part of his story and discover what an incredible being Frank is. You’ll be rewarded with an uncommon love and devotion. Frank is a true rescue, so help spread the word to help find this little fella a forever home today!


Uno is an enthusiastic young boy who loves getting into anything and everything! He can usually be found stalking his friends at the cattery, ready to pounce or finding a box to play hide-and-seek. Uno loves to play and will chase kitty dancers, string and toy springs.

He loves stuffies and curls up with a little toy to take his naps. Uno is a loving boy but sometimes can get over-stimulated and needs a family that knows when it’s time to put the toys away and take a nap. He has a long life ahead of him and can’t wait to spend it as your best friend.

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