It’s the Halloween season and this Jack O’Lantern would love to light up your life! Jack O’Lantern is chunks of love. He curls up next to you, on you, or anywhere near you. He will do anything to be close to the ones he loves and desperately wants to be loved back.

Jack O’Lantern  has a heart of gold and deserves only the best out of life. He likes being brushed and loves being with you at all times. He loves kids and adults and cats and kittens. If you can make Jack’s life spooktacular by adopting him, head down to the shelter today!


Tiffany is a sweet kitten who is looking for her furever home. While she may have a face to rival Grumpy Cat, she loves getting affection and is actually very cuddly. Tiffany enjoys having her chin rubbed and being pet.

She follows staff members and volunteers around looking for affection. Tiffany’s favorite snacks are tuna flavored treats and she will eat them out of your hands. She is a playful kitten whose favorite toy is the little scrunch balls that she likes to chase around the cattery. When she’s not looking for your affection she can be found snoozing in the sunniest (and warmest) window spot. Come and meet this lovebug today!

Gina and Tiffany

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

Please meet Gina (brindle) and Tiffany (tan). These two ridiculously cute girls came to the shelter due to an eviction. You ready for this? they lived with chickens and doves!

They are beyond sweet, so fun, silly and downright amazing! They are also a bonded pair so the shelter is looking for one home for both of them. They seem house-trained and crate trained and love to play together and roll around. They may even be able to live with a cat! They are just the best.

If you are interested in adopting Gina and Tiffany, please call for more information: 516-785-5220, visit them at 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh, or email [email protected]


Available for adoption at Bideawee:

Chicklet is a gorgeous 7-year-old pooch that everyone adores! Donning a fantastic brindle coat, warm eyes, and a sweet disposition, Chicklet is truly a gem. While mature, he is still plenty silly and playful, and has a spirited heart! Not to mention, he is over-spilling with love and affection for his people pals.

He may be 77 pounds, but he is a true gentle giant, and is just a darling with everyone he meets. He seems to have good manners and is already house-broken; all he is missing now is the home to call his own! If this sweet fellow sounds like the perfect one for you, check out his webpage!  


Donning a heart-melting face and some of the saddest puppy-dog eyes that we’ve ever seen, it’s hard not to gush over Olive. She is such a tender-hearted and sensitive soul, it’s impossible not to fall in love with her in but a few minutes. She nuzzles her entire head into your leg for a snuggle, and if she could melt into your side, she surely would.

She loves people and would do well in a home that could provide her with constant companionship. Olive weighs in at 67 pounds, but she is incredibly gentle in all her ways and when on walks and would do well in many types of homes. If this lovely lady seems perfect for you, check out her webpage


With a gorgeous smoke-tabby coat, ivory patches styled in, and pretty pink nose, Andie is a beauty! Not to mention, she is every bit as affectionate and personable as she is outwardly beautiful. It’s hard not to be charmed by her! The only thing she’s missing is an equally wonderful home to call her own. If she sounds perfect for you, check out here webpage


Posey is a strong and sassy lady who boasts the grand frame of a lioness and emerald eyes! She surely dominates and commands any room that she walks into. Of bold and electric personality, Posey possesses the ability to take charge and take over! She is seeking an equally intrepid home for her own! If you’re interested in this rare lady, then please call the Westhampton Adoption Center today.

For more information about adopting Chicklet, Olive, Andie and Posey, contact the Bideawee adoption center located at 118 Old Country Rd., Westhampton, or call 631-684-0079.

Coco 1

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

Coco (reference #T91691) is a 3-year-old chocolate-colored boxer mix. She is a friendly dog looking for a loving home with an experienced pet owner. Coco is a sweet, energetic gal that would do best as the only pet in the house, and big bonus points if you have a big yard for her to run around in. 


Dewey and Dolly (reference #’s BF2425 / BF2426) happened upon the right yard when they were outside fending for themselves this summer.  A local rescuer scooped them up and brought them indoors where they’ve been living the safe life, being shown how caring humans can be while learning to co-existing with confident cats.

This bonded set may still be shy at first to strangers, but with a gentle touch and some patience, they’ll warm up to you. Dewey and Dolly are ready to be adopted from their foster home today!  Please email [email protected] if you are interested in adopting this adorable pair!
