adoption on Long Island

Furry friends come in all shapes and sizes, but if you prefer them on the smaller side, then this week’s lineup is for you!

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America

NSALA News: Wisdom Panel has just launched its Wisdom Panel Complete For Cats — it’s a DNA Test Kit (they already had one for dogs.) Throughout the month of June (National Adopt A Shelter Cat Month) Wisdom Panel is partnering with North Shore Animal League America. All adoption fees for kittens and cats will be covered by Wisdom Panel (for approved adopters.) Additionally, Wisdom Panel is donating $1 per kit sold to North Shore Animal League America.


Ten-month-old Eritrea (Adoption #BF3774) has had a less than auspicious start to his life, but he’s very happy to put that behind him and soar into his future with all the enthusiasm an older kitten should have. Although this precious mini-panther could run and play with feline friends all day, he’s still working on trusting his human companions. A home with children 12-years-old and above, with experienced adults, will show him all he needs to know about being part of a family. We’ve already witnessed so much growth in our little friend and are thrilled knowing what awaits him in his first safe home!


Despite a rough start to her life, three-year-old Roz (Adoption #E3401) is showing everyone what a survivor she is. This reserved calico feels the safest spooning with her feline friends, but from that comfortable place, her heart is opening to the prospect of being loved by human friends as well. Nothing makes her happier than long cuddle sessions so we’re looking for a family who will welcome her with another bound to be her bestie who will make her transition to her first safe home successful. Roz will never disappoint her friends, or her family, and her charming spirit will be a daily reminder of how much she has overcome on her journey into your heart and home.


**Special Request** Best buddy Zuke (Adoption #E3402) might be one of the bravest from his large rescue. NSALA vets detected a heart condition which will be monitored and covered for life through their Pet Health Centers. He has proven to be a devoted friend to his shyer acquaintances, offering them his big spoon talents when they need some comfort. NSALA wouldn’t want this super friendly, six-year-old survivor’s natural talent for being a buddy to go unused so we’re looking for a home where a feline friend to share his life awaits him — and what a lucky friend to be loved by Zuke!

Usain Bolt

Adopters, take your mark. ] What do the world’s fastest man and our newest rescue namesake have in common? Jumping hurdles to success! Our Usain Bolt (Adoption #E3403) may not have the speed and confidence of the Olympic icon, but his life has indeed been a marathon of survival. NSALA is thrilled to help make the rest of Usain’s life a smooth sprint towards happiness. All this tender, two-year-old tuxedo needs is a confident hand to guide him, and a feline friend to support him, and you’ll discover a winner as he crosses the finish line with you to begin his life anew.


Sometimes beautiful Bridgid (Adoption #E3404) looks back on the uncertainties of her past and can’t believe how fortunate she is to be settled into the peace and comfort of Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. Other times, she thinks life couldn’t get any better than being on her comfy blanket with her favorite toys and feline friends nearby to play. It will be hard to convince this sweet, two-year-old survivor that life is about to reach new heights of happiness once she is welcomed into a loving home worthy of her where she’ll spend her life with cat friends. Brigid may not realize this, but the only thing keeping her from her living her very best life as a beloved family member is a visit from her hero — you!


**Senior Alert** When you meet eight-year-old Sherlock (Adoption#E3406) for the first time, he’s going to make you feel like you’ve known each other forever. That’s a pretty wonderful quality coming from a gentleman who has survived years of chaos in hopes of renewing his life with someone special. Sherlock loves human visitors but loves his cat friends even more. Give him a moment to take in all the changes around him, you’ll discover this survivor has replaced uncertainty with triumph. If your quiet family is looking for someone to keep your cat at home company, Sherlock has proven to be a loyal companion. Sherlock would appreciate a calm home with children six-years and older who can appreciate all the wisdom he has to share with them. Sherlock may be the most popular guy in his room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. Wouldn’t you be the lucky ones to make him part of your life?

Available for adoption at the Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter


**Senior Alert** Parker is a ten-year-old Male Chihuahua Mix who came to the Animal Shelter after losing his beloved previous owner to the COVID-19 virus. Parker loves meeting new friends, going on walks, snuggling, and snacks. Parker was not taught proper manners when he was younger, leading him to develop food and toy aggression and a habit of guarding things he perceives as “his”. He requires an adult-only home that is comfortable managing this and implementing strict rules and structure; all while understanding that Parker is 100% worth the effort. Parker has blood pressure and vision problems, and he needs an experienced owner who is willing to put in the extra effort despite these challenges. This poor boy has been through quite a lot in his life and needs a furrever home that won’t give up on him.
