Available for adoption through North Shore Animal League America:


Just one look at beautiful mama Turquoise (Adoption #H210548) and you’ll want to promise her a lifetime of luxury. This tender, 3-year-old tuxedo cat worked very hard to care for her kittens and should be rewarded for her efforts with a trip home to a loving family committed to letting her be the kitten she missed out on being while fending for herself on the local streets. Don’t miss out on this treasure, Turquoise is a gem!


Secondi (Adoption #R166953) received the second chance he deserved when he was delivered to NSALA’s Pet Health Center for some TLC. Now fully recovered, this sweet, 2-year-old boy has a lot of gratitude stored up in his gentle body and can’t wait to share it with the humans who carry him home in their loving arms.

Margaret Thatcher

Although Margaret Thatcher (Adoption #NCI1575) is more than capable of running a nation, this glorious tabby just wants to rule your heart  Shy at first, Margaret is welcome to ear rubs as long as you promise not to stop. After traveling from NSALA’s sister shelter upstate Glen Falls to Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, this 2-year-old is enjoying cage free living. Margaret wants her next move to be into your living room for some serious window gazing alongside you. She’s a noble choice for any home!

Carly Simon

Nobody does it better than Carly Simon! Carly (Adoption L80525) is one very grateful kitty. This incredibly sweet, 2-year-old tortie isn’t vain at all. She has the best attitude considering all that she’s been through recently. Her positive attitude is what drew her rescuer’s when they found her left behind and fending for herself on the city streets. Carly is an expert biscuit maker and seems to want to make up for lost time with everyone she meets, in the hopes someone will become her family.

Available for adoption at the Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter:

Betty Boop

Named after the iconic cartoon diva (who was originally designed as a dog), Betty Boop is an 8-year-old female Pit Bull Terrier Mix who can’t get enough of people, and they can’t get enough of her! She was brought into the Animal Shelter by a Good Samaritan who found her looking lost at a nearby train station. Staff and volunteers discovered quickly how attached she gets to everyone when she cried watching the Good Samaritan leave. She doesn’t like to see any of her new friends go! Betty Boop is the perfect combination of calm, affectionate, and sweet all rolled into a 70-pound ball of love. Her eyes say it all, she oozes love and adoration for every new person she meets. While she’s great with children, she would prefer to be the only pet in her home. 

If you are interested in meeting Betty Boop, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with her in a domestic setting, which includes the shelters Meet and Greet Room, dog runs, and Dog Walk trail. Family Pet Meet and Greets and at home interactions are also welcome and an integral part of the adoption process. Please call the Smithtown Animal Shelter at 631-360-7575 to meet her today! 

COVID-19: Foster Opportunity:

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Smithtown Animal Shelter has had to restrict public access, including loyal volunteers. If you have no other pets or young children at home and are looking for a way to serve your community in this time of crisis, please consider signing up to be a foster. Foster parents provide temporary care for cats, kittens, and dogs in their own homes. Some animals need as little as two weeks of care, while others may need care for extended periods of time.

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

Lexi Mama

Lexi Mama has been at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter for way too long. Staff and volunteers are utterly heartbroken for this 6-year-old girl who has spent most of her life in the shelter system. Lexi first came to TOH as a stray in 2014 with her brother. She was reclaimed by her owner, only to reappear in 2015. Lexi’s day finally came in September 2018 when someone came from afar to adopt her, but it didn’t work out and she was returned once again in July 2019. Lexi Mama takes a long time to warm up to new people, which her adopter knew, but that situation is not for everyone. Lexi Mama is a special girl who once again is seeking that special person or family willing to put in the time and be patient with her. After all these years in the shelter, it’s no wonder she may have some issues that need addressing. Lexi is currently looking for a solo pet home. It’s definitely time for Lexi’s luck to turn around! If you are interested in adopting Lexi Mama, please call for more information at 516-785-5220 or email


If you’re cooped up at home, remember that cats and dogs are feeling the same way in their cages at the shelter. If you can open your home to a deserving animal by fostering (or adopting), please call for more information at 516-785-5220 or email

Available for adoption through Pets4 Luv:

For more information about adopting Trevor, please contact Pets4Luv ASAP at 516-860-7057 or email
