You’d be barking up the right tree if you adopted any one of these adorable dogs and cats this weekend. These amazing animals are looking for their forever home-could it be yours?


Available for adoption at Pioneers for Animals Welfare Society, Inc.:

Zuffie is a handsome American Eskimo, almost 13 years old weighing about 25 pounds. He doesn’t look or act his age, and he makes the perfect companion since he is willing to be a couch potato, but also prances like a teenager when it’s time for his walk. Zuffie is a barker at first but can be won over easily. How could you say no to bringing this handsome fella home?!


Meet the Duke. He is a 2-year-old, 40-pound bundle of muscle, joy and happiness. He wags his tail so hard he almost can’t stand up on his short little legs. He is a Boxer/Stafford terrier mix and loves to go on walks, play ball, nap at your feet and cuddle when it is time to watch TV or go to bed. 

Duke was saved from euthanasia, but also the unfortunate victim of a “need to make room” situation. Thankfully he is now ready for his next chapter in life. Duke will make a great hiking buddy as he loves the outdoors and is very energetic. He is good with cats and other dogs, he’s fully vetted, neutered and ready to move into his new forever home today! 


Lila is an adorable 8-year-old French Bulldog who is spayed, healthy and up to date on her shots. Lila is very friendly with adults and kids over the age of 14 years. She loves to snuggle and play ball and will follow you around like your shadow. The only thing Lila needs now is a family of her own. How about yours? 

For information about adopting Zuffie, Duke or Lila, please email, call 631-306-4616 or check out their website here


Available for adoption at Almost Home Animal Rescue:

Catalina is the super-cute Tabby pictured here. This sweet-as-sugar 3-year-old gal loves other cats, and really enjoys being pet and by humans and snuggling with other kitties. Sadly, Catalina found her way to Almost Home after her owner passed away. Catalina is seeking a calm home with no more than one additional cat to keep her company. If Catalina is your “Cat”alina, contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at or call 631-627-3665 for more information today!


Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

The hard work of mothering is behind young Ester, who’s practically a kitten herself! Ester (adoption # BF2769) is a shy, 2-year-old tuxedo kitty who has already experienced so much hardship in her short life. Nevertheless, she’s appreciating the safety and serenity she’s experiencing at NSALA’s Adoption Center as she waits to find her new home. Her ideal household is one which can offer her a peaceful place for her to plant herself by sunny windows (and if there are children, age 8 and up, please.)  For more information on Ester, please reach out to


Available for adoption through Second Chance Rescue:

OMG look at that tongue! Super-friendly Lacey was spotted by Second Chance Rescue in a packed shelter, and she was one of the longest residents, which they couldn’t believe. Second Chance couldn’t bear to see Lacey put down, so they pulled her to safety, and now she is looking for her forever home. Lacey is a 9-month-old hound mix and is described as a happy girl who is great with other dogs, and good with cats, too. She is young, so she is active, and will literally wiggle her way right into your heart. Lacey is also looking for a foster home when she arrives to NYC this weekend. If you’re interested in adopting Lacey, head to and fill out an application today!

As always, thanks for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop…pass it on!
