Available for adoption at Almost Home Animal Rescue:


How adorable is Liam?! Liam is just a super sweet cat, a little on the shy side, but once he warms up to someone, there’s no looking back. He loves to play with other cats so a home with already existing felines would be purrfect for this little fella. If you are a patient pet parent willing to help Liam come out of his little shell, contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at almosthomeli.org or call 631-627-3665 for more information.

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

Jericho and Bambi
Jericho and Bambi

Jericho (adoption #BF2860) and his sister Bambi (adoption #BF2861) were fortunate to receive their mother’s love their entire first year of life. Now these bonded, 1-year-old siblings are ready to see what life as beloved pets is like. They’ll be a terrific addition to any family who chooses to embrace this sweet sister and brother pair. Grateful head butts are in your future!   


Riggins (adoption #H205572) lost the only home he ever knew but has quickly adapted with the help of his friends at North Shore Animal League America who have given him all the comfort and love he needs to get back on his paws. This 5-year-old cutie would do best in quiet home with understanding humans 10 and older in age. He’ll smoothly transition into being part of a loving family once again in no time!

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:


You’re in for a real treat if you adopt Buster! Crowned “play group super star,” Buster loves nothing more than getting out for walks with his buddies, playing in the yard, and of course rocking his doggy play groups! Buster was an owner surrender in April 2018, so he’s been waiting way too long for his chance at a forever home. Buster is stressed at the shelter but has come a long way since his arrival. He’s seeking a savvy owner and/or a home with kids 17 and up. 

Sandy 1

Sandy is a super sweet, beautiful 5-year-old girl who loves nothing more than receiving affection from anyone willing to show her some love. She is in search of a savvy foster/adopter who can help her overcome some guarding issues, but these are some of the easiest behaviors to correct. A little play time and some kisses and she (and you) will fall in love for a lifetime! 

If you are interested in learning more about Buster and Sandy, please call the shelter at 516-785-5220, visit 3320 Beltagh Ave. in Wantagh or email [email protected]


Stark has been waiting patiently for his forever home for too long of a time, and no one is quite sure why. Stark is a very smart dog. He knows a ton of commands and loves long walks.

For more information about adopting Stark, call 516-785-5220, visit 3320 Beltagh Avenue in Wantagh or email [email protected].

Queenie is a sweetie! This 10-year-old Beagle comes from a Manhattan shelter, picked up as a stray if you can believe it. This gal is a very animated, happy-go-lucky doggie that just can’t wait to find her forever home.  


Buttercup is a beautiful, semi-long-haired tortie that was part of Last Hope’s “Princess Bride” litter rescued in Hauppauge at just 7 weeks old. Now 4 months old and thriving, Princess Buttercup has one request, and that is for her own forever home.

Who is this adorable puffy little Russian Blue mix? Why that’s Willow! Sweet little Willow is just  8 weeks old and is ready for her forever home. This beauty needs someone to care for her, play with her and teach her all the things a little kitty needs to know. She needs someone to love for the rest of her life. Is that lucky someone you? 

Penelope 1

At only 2 years old, little Penelope is one of the sweetest, loving girls you’ll ever meet. Found as a stray, she is now safe, spayed and in excellent health. All she needs now is a new home and someone to cuddle with.
