Pardon the inter-ruff-tion, but you should check out all of these adorable cats and dogs that are waiting to go home with you today!

Available for adoption through Pioneers for Animals Welfare Society:Foursome

This sweet foursome was found all alone, fending for themselves at just 7 or 8 weeks old.  The gray/white male is outnumbered by his three sisters, but he doesn’t seem to mind. These tiny tykes each need a safe and loving forever home.  Why not take one or two home today?

Daisy 1

Daisy and Rufus belong to a senior couple who sadly can no longer care for them. At 3 years old, Daisy is blind in one eye, but that doesn’t seem to stop her. She’s very playful and loves to be held. Her handsome brother, Rufus is somewhere between 5 and 8 years old, and is super sweet although he prefers not to be held as much as his little sis does. 


If you can open your heart and home to any of the four kittens, Daisy or Rufus, please contact [email protected] or call 631-306-4616.

Marble is a very sweet young lady. It’s hard to believe such a sweet girl was living outside until her feeder just picked her up and brought her to the vet. Now living life on the inside, Marble starts off shy but warms up quickly. She enjoys being pet and gets along well with other cats. If you can open your heart and home to Marble, contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at almosthomeli.org or call 631-627-3665 for more information.

Cali 4

It would be impossible to find a cuter bunch that Momma Cali and her three kittens, Murphy, Wallace, and Iggy. At 2 years old, Cali takes wonderful care of her kittens, cuddling with them and showing as much love as any mom can. She is such a chill and easy-going lady. All three kittens are super sweet, and like most kittens their age, when they aren’t snuggling with mommy, they love to play, run, climb and jump with their foster siblings. If you are interested in making your home their forever home, please email their foster, Jill at [email protected].

Cricket deserves her golden years be filled with an abundance of love, nurturing and chin scratches. Can you offer her that life?
