With so many cats and kittens and dogs and puppies looking for their forever home, it’s easier than ever to find your new best friend. The hardest part is choosing which one! Read all about some of Long Island’s adorable adoptables right here


Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

Chili is a 5-year-old Chihuahua mix who loves nothing more than her daily walks on leash.  She takes some time to warm up with new people and can be a bit fearful, so she needs to go to a home with older children only. She has a slight heart murmur, but it doesn’t slow her down. 

Anyone interested in adopting Chili would be eligible for three private training sessions with NSALA’s pet behavior staff. It would be best if everyone in the family can meet her before adoption, including the family dog, to make sure it is the right match. If you’d like to meet Chili, please email [email protected] 


Hotei is a large, very friendly, 5-year-old Hound/Sharpei mix with a unique look. He can be calm, but also enjoys goofing around and playing. Bring your entire family to meet him, including any resident dog to see how everyone interacts. Hotei would do best in a home where the children are over 10 years old. Any potential new home for Hotei needs to be cat-free as well. For more info, reach out to [email protected]

Henry 1

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

“Loves to play fetch”, “loooves swimming”, “loving and affectionate”… these are just some of the things Henry’s buddies say about him. Poor Henry has been at the shelter since November 2016 when he came in as a stray. Henry is now one of their top 10 longest residents, a title he should never have.  

Henry seems to really like other dogs and is super sweet and loving with people once he learns to trust them. He is one of those dogs who will nudge your hand for more affection which is super cute. Henry is looking for a home with kids 17 and up due to some handling sensitivities. Henry truly deserves a loving home, so if you are interested in adopting Henry, please call the shelter at 516-785-5220, visit 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh or email [email protected] today!


Available for adoption at Little Shelter:

Rambo wants to be your furever friend! This 5-year-old Chihuahua mix is a sweet and loving guy just looking for attention. He’s known for balancing on his hind paws for a treat. This little guy loves to give kisses and snuggles, so if you’re looking for a best friend that will always be by your side, Rambo is the one for you!


Nina arrived at Little Shelter in 2013 after being found in front of a pet store with her kittens. Her kittens were quickly adopted out but, 6 years later this sweet girl is still waiting for a furever home of her own. Nina is an affectionate cat who enjoys getting belly rubs and ear scratches. While you may see her snoozing on a shelf, once you get her going, she is a lively and spunky cat who just wants to be your best friend. Nina’s only wish is for a family that she can love and adore with all her heart, could you be the one she is waiting for?

pearl 1

Available for adoption at the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter:

This bonnie lass is Pearl, and she is wishing on a four-leaf clover to find a furever home of her own. She likes to give lots of snuggles and will give you a massage while you pet her, purring all the while. She’s an excellent watch cat who will keep an eye from the windows, chattering to let you know when birds are in the garden. This “St. Catty’s Day”, why not take home a love that’s true, for Pearl could be the puurrrfect cat for you! For more information about Pearl, please contact the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter located at 104 Deposit Rd, East Northport, or 631-651-9788.


Available for adoption at Bideawee:

Meet beautiful Missy! She is one charming little 2-year-old girl! Missy is a funny feline, who is a little nosey with her fellow cats, and just likes to watch what everyone else is up to. When she’s not busy spying, she spends time with her people pals and feline friends in equal measure. Though she is a diva, so it’s all on her own terms! She’d do great in any home as saucy as herself, that shares in her sense of humor! She would do nicely with another kitty as well! In addition, she’ll never pass up on any cat treats, which are the way to her heart!


This little 3-month-old darling is named Rikki. What a face she has! With doe eyes, expressive ears and a face that speaks for itself (and hides nothing!), Rikki is both beautiful and bold! Saucy, sweet and ever so smart, this gorgeous girl has it all… except a home to call her own. She would flourish with an equally spirited family that shares her youthful zest and active lifestyle. Rikki’s idyllic adopters would be able to spend all day with her; slowly introducing her to the world and helping her to make new friends. 


Meet Zeki! Donning a fantastic tricolor coat, and a charming charcoal nose, this 3-month old can make you fall head over heels in a glance. More than just good looks, Zeki is also equal parts loving, engaging and attentive. He encompasses only the loveliest qualities. Zeki would blossom in a home that shares in his puppy zest and active lifestyle. 


Meet Birdie! She is a beautiful 8-year-old gal who can easily capture anyone’s attention. Boasting a gorgeous tan coat with a fluffy tail and ears that sprout, she is quite easy on the eyes. Not to mention, she also has a contagious smile and when you see her grinning your way, it’s impossible not to smile back. Birdie is seeking a a mature, adult-only family that can dedicate the one-on-one time that she deserves and craves. A patient and understanding family that understands her is all she needs. A home with a doggie friend is on a case-by-case basis, but even if she were an only child, there is more than enough of Birdie to go around for everyone! 

For more information about adopting Missy, Rikki, Zeki and Birdie, contact the Bideawee adoption center located at 118 Old Country Rd., Westhampton, or call 631-684-0079.
