The biggest challenge of finding the perfect pet is having to choose from all the amazing animals that are available for adoption.

There’s no shortage of adorable kittens, cats, puppies and dogs on Long Island that are ready to make your home their forever home…read about some of them right here!


Available for adoption at Bideawee:

This sweet and precious lady is named Joci. She’s a warm and loving 10-year-old dog who is seeking a home to call her own. Donning a fantastic ebony and ivory coat with brindle highlights throughout, she is both outwardly stunning and inwardly lovely. Joci is in search of a family that is every bit as wonderful and affectionate as she is. In return, you can expect endless love and loyalty from her.


This handsome young gentleman is Seamus. Isn’t he a stunner? Boasting sweet brown eyes and an almost ginger coat, he’s certainly one unique looking pooch! This sweet 3-year-old man has already amassed a fan club both from his stellar leash manners and his scruffy coat. Seamus has come all the way from Texas to find his forever family. He is down for anything from going on a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood, to just watching some television on the couch. He’d love to do it all by your side! 


This handsome young boy is named Meenie. Not only is he angelic in appearance, but he’s equally as loving in personality. Snuggly, tenderhearted and gorgeous both inside and out, 2-month-old Meenie is simply a charmer. All he needs is an equally wonderful family to call his own. 

Pearl 3

Meet Pearl! She has been looking for her forever home since arriving at Bideawee in July 2015. Pearl is a 5-year-old Domestic Shorthair kitty with a coat of creams, silvers and whites. She is simply dazzling! Pearl demands to be wooed and celebrated, and is awaiting for someone to win her heart! She would do well in a home with older, gentle children, or an adult-only home. 

lego 1

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

Lego (adoption #R166271) is no puzzle! This charming 7-year-old male has ingratiated himself with everyone he meets and has been delighting his new friends from the moment he was rescued from a North Carolina municipal shelter. Everything about Lego fits together purrfectly, from his stunning fluffy coat, to his amiable personality. 

Lego is FIV+ and prefers the predictable peace of a home where he’s the only pet. He’d thrive in a home where the family has children 10+ in age who can provide him a stable environment. If he sounds like the piece of your heart that’s been missing, come meet him this weekend or reach out to [email protected]


Millie (adoption #R164469) was unhappy in a chaotic home and arrived at NSALA’s Adoption Center searching for a better fit for her.  Tentative at first, this lovely 3-year-old from West Virginia feels a connection to any quiet understanding friend willing to rub her ears and whisper gently that her future is bright.

Millie is being treated for IBS with special diet. Millie could use a foster setting to complete her plan for a healthy life with her new family. If a quiet soulmate is what’s missing in your home, Millie would love to fill that position. Please email [email protected] for more information.


When Diamond (adoption #V38943) arrived from Virginia, she was carrying a secret … five to be precise. Little Diamond was about to be a mama! For several weeks this tiny, teenager (1 ½ year old) was safely tucked away in the NSALA nursery tending to her five kittens, but the stress of her duties left her needing a little TLC from her human friends.

Now Diamond is shining brightly, ready to find a happy home of her own.  Now free of responsibility, Diamond is ready to play! If you’re looking for one cat, you’re going to take home a real gem when you adopt Diamond! For more details, please contact [email protected]


Linda (adoption #V39343) is a lucky lady from Virginia who is anticipating great changes in the near future. This tender, 1-year-old tortie is loving her new friends at NSALA’s Adoption Center—both feline and human—and dreams of windows and a never-ending flow of ear rubs and attention.

Linda is being treated for a heart condition and receives her care at cost through their Medical Center in Port Washington. She couldn’t be a dreamier patient! If your family seeks a calm friend for your cat at home,  lovely Linda can’t wait to meet you this weekend!  For more information, please email [email protected]
