Love is in the air this time of year, and these cats and dogs are dreaming of finding their one true love. Could it be you? 

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:


Bear is an extraordinary 2-year-old, extra handsome boy who came to the shelter as a stray in December 2019. Bear is interested in meeting other dogs but likes to stay clear of pushy behavior (who doesn’t?). He also passed his cat test here at the shelter. He displayed some discomfort with people near his food, so he is looking for a home with children 15 and older. Bear enjoys attention from people and loves treats. Smarter than the average bear, Bear also knows the commands “sit,” “paw,” and “drop.”  Bear is slightly nervous here the shelter and would truly thrive in a home of his own. If you are interested in adopting Maximus, please call for more information at 516-785-5220, visit him at 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh or email [email protected]

Chloe is a 4-year-old beauty with special needs. Chloe suffers from a seizure disorder which is easily managed by two separate medications and bi-annual blood work.

Chloe is wonderful around other cats and children. She’d make a great addition to a loving family.

Pumpkin 1

Pumpkin was trapped by Pets4Luv in East Patchogue in November 2019. They received a call from someone who thought this stray cat may have an injured leg and would need medical attention. A veterinary evaluation revealed that Pumpkin needed to have his front leg amputated. He has been healing in foster care ever since then. This 6-year-old sweetheart has come out of his shell since his surgery, making friends with another cat in foster. He can be pet and is very sweet.

Bobbi 1

Since Bobbi (adoption #VR212) moved into Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, he’s been the perfect example of the benefits of cage-free living.  This 8-year-old male grey tabby loves to chase toys, play with friends, and bask in the warm glow of our sunny windows. He’s the champion high jumper during playtime!  Ideally, Bobbi is looking for a family with children 16 and older in age who can keep up with his exuberance. Bobbi is part of our Sponsor Program so all costs for his FLUTD (Feline lower urinary tract disease) treatment is fully covered by NSALA’s generous sponsors.  Bobbi’s enthusiasm brightens everyone’s day- why not let him brighten yours!  


Kani (adoption #H210100) is luxuriating in this new world of Bianca’s Furry Friends living.  Food being served to him and warm beds near windows in which to nap is a far cry from fending for himself.  This little 6-month-old fella survived alone on the streets but now feels most at home in the company of confident cats who show him how lucky he is to be safe and loved. Kani would do best in a quiet home… like yours?  

Shirley and Warren
Shirley and Warren

**Double Adoption** Shirley (adoption #BF3013) and Warren (adoption #BF3014) survived the first few months of their lives on the city streets, leaning on each other for comfort and support. Now that this 5-month-old brother and sister pair are safely nestled in a comfy bed together at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, they still draw comfort from each other as they learn to trust humans. Warren is already showing he’s ready to explore his new safe world but stays nearby his timid sister to give her all the support she needs. He’s a wonderful mentor for her to watch as he has positive interactions with humans. A quiet, patient home with cat-experienced adults and children 8 and older in age will show these feline siblings how wonderful the indoor world with a loving family can be.  


Halibut’s (adoption #H210195) golden eyes and lengthy whiskers are the first thing you notice when you visit this shy, sweet boy. Offering Halibut treats will get you an invitation to a chin rub, the makings of a great beginning! After being rescued locally from life on the cold city streets, Halibut is beginning to realize he has a very bright future ahead of him.   This 9-month old’s ideal home is with children 10 and older in age and alongside a confident cat to be his snuggle buddy. If your family cat could use a little friend to mentor, you may be the purrfect pawrents for Halibut!  

Cupid 1

It’s never too soon to discover your true love. Cupid (adoption #L80505) is pointing her arrows straight at your heart; and all you need to do is fall for her endless charm. This 1-year-old girl was discovered in Jersey and made her way to Long Island where she has the highest hopes that she’ll soon be sharing a home with a loving family. Will it be yours?  


**Double Adoption** Plaza (adoption #BF2895) and Radisson (adoption #BF2896) are a matching pair of 7-month old, female tortie kittens dreaming of life of feline leisure.  These beauties were rescued locally and deserve to be in a loving, safe home. You’ll discover Raddison has embraced freedom in a safe place but always finds her way back to her shyer sister, Plaza, to reassure her they are secure and cared for.   If you’d like to offer permanent room service to these sisters, Plaza and Radisson are waiting for you in our new Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center! Come visit them at their Port Washington campus today!
