Bandit Copy

Sweet Bandit has a sad story to share. He was left at the Babylon Animal Shelter by the only family he’s ever known. This 3-year-old fella is described as a sweet and loving guy who loves to run and play fetch more than anything in the whole world! He is housetrained, knows a ton of commands, and just can’t wait to find a home of his own. It takes Bandit time to get comfortable with new people so he would do best in a quiet, low traffic home with older kids and no other pets. Please take the time to meet Bandit. All he needs is a new “leash” on life.

If you are interested in adopting this sweet soul, please contact the shelter’s placement team at (516)785-5220 or email [email protected], [email protected] or [email protected].

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America

Petra Copy

Staff and volunteers are so proud of how far Petra (Adoption #BF2630) has come along on her journey at North Shore Animal League America. When she first arrived, rescued from the local streets, she was very unsure of the rapid changes coming at her in her new, safer environment. NSALA gave Petra all the time she needed in a sunny cage-free room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, and she learned from all of her friends — feline and human — how to trust again. You’ll find 2-year-old Petra a bit shy at first, but with consistent care in a quiet home, this terrific tabby will show you what a brave survivor she has been. Petra is ready to be in her first home, one with children 16+ in age and cat-experienced adults who will know by instinct that a gentle hand and a loving heart is all she needs to win her over.

Sasha Copy

Shy Sasha (Adoption #BF3036) has been shedding some of her trepidation and showing everyone who she truly is: a lovely lady looking for lots of human attention. After her chaotic start to life, it’s understandable why a little time and reassurance was in order to get this 8-year-old beauty back on her paws again. A special diet has helped ease her tummy tensions with great success. If you have a peaceful home with children 12 and over who can help her settle into her new space, she promises to fill it up with gratitude. Sasha is ready to show you all she learned from her Animal League America family!

Top Batman.Joker Bottom Penguin.Wonder Woman
Top: Batman & Joker. Bottom: Penguin & Wonder Woman

Batman, Joker, Penguin, and Wonder Woman are 6-month-old super siblings named after some super characters! These kittens are shy when meeting strangers, so they are often overlooked by potential adopters. With a little time and patience to get to know them, they show just how sweet, playful and loving they can all be. Shy kittens need a little extra work to get them to come out of their shells, but they are always worth the effort once you earn their trust.

Currently, there are a variety of male and female cats & kittens available to adopt or foster. If you are looking for a fun-loving, yarn tossing ball of love, stop by the Kitten Nursery or the Cat Condos at the Smithtown Animal Shelter and find a PURR-fect soulmate or two! All of the felines at the Shelter are current on vaccines and have received a full workup (blood work, Feline HIV & Leukemia tested, physical exam, etc.) by a board-certified Veterinarian.

If you are interested in meeting the Super Cats or any of the other adorable cats and kittens available for adoption, please call 631-360-7575 today for more information.

Wally is an adorably sweet 3-year-old, 55 lb Terrier mix who has been at the shelter since July 2019- way too long! Wally came in as a stray with old wounds/scarring covering his ears, face, and legs. No one is sure as to what happened to Wally, but he is now safe and loved by volunteers and staff. This guy is understandably a bit nervous with new people so he’s looking for an adult-only home with dog experience to help him through his nerves and to continue with training. He is also being recommended as a solo pet, but don’t worry – Wally has more than enough love to give to his perfect match! If you are interested in learning more, please email [email protected] or call 516-785-5220 for more information today!

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