9 Cats, Dogs Offering Cuddles for Forever Homes

pjimage (46)

Here’s a gentle reminder that senior pets not only offer a ton of love, but are easily trained, already housebroken and low-key compared to their attention-needy kitten and puppy counterparts.

“Every animal has an individual personality and disposition, so we encourage people to keep an open mind and heart when adopting because you may fall in love with a pet you hadn’t previously considered,” said Kelly DiCicco, manager of adoptions promotions at the ASPCA Adoption Center.

So be sure to keep an open mind and you’ll find your new best friend soon!

Available for adoption through the ASPCA

The Press is pleased to partner with the ASPCA to encourage Long Islanders to visit ASPCA.org/Adopt to find your new best friend from the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan.


**Senior Alert** Princess is an extremely calm, friendly, gentle, and easy-going 10-year-old mixed breed. She’s getting older and deserves to be loved and have all the fun one can give her. Princess loves to sleep and is a total couch potato.


**Senior Alert** Ella is a wonderful 9-year-old gal who is very well-behaved, sweet, and loving. She is mostly low-energy and loves to go for walks. As a senior dog, she does have some medical needs that her new family will need to be aware of, but for this good girl, they’re well worth it.


**Senior Alert** Icy is a 10-year-old mature lady and can usually be found lounging around and relaxing.  This cat’s new family should know that she’s in diabetic remission, and she feels great. She currently doesn’t require insulin, but her new people should be on board with monitoring.


**Senior Alert** Lion is the king of the jungle and is as regal as his name implies. This 11-yeaer-old happily greets people and is quick to indulge in cheek scratches and full-body pets. Lion does have diabetes—which the staff is happy to tell you more about—but trust them, the little bit of extra work is worth it to be showered in his love.

 Please call (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120 for more information about these and other animals available for adoption at the ACPCA Adoption Center, 424 E. 92nd St. (between 1st and York Avenues) in Manhattan, New York City, 10128.

Available for adoption at the Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter 


**Senior Alert** Blaze is a 9-year-old Pit mix who was rescued by Smithtown Animal Control Officers when he was found abandoned and left in a cage at Blydenburgh Park. Blaze absolutely loves to play with toys, give kisses, and eat lots of food! In the winter, he’ll snuggle up in his jacket, and in the summer, he’ll splash around in the kiddie pool. Once he trusts you, he’ll love you forever. Blaze is very loyal and protective of his people, so he will need a home that can help properly introduce him to new people. This good boy deserves a warm bed in an adult-only home where he can be the only pet. If you are interested in adopting Blaze, please call 631-360-7575 for more information today.

Available for adoption through Tender Loving Cats


Cameron is a shy but oh so sweet little guy who enjoys playing with wand toys. He was rescued and needed an eye enucleation, but it doesn’t make a bit of difference in his abilities. Cameron is looking for someone with a big heart who will take him home to love for the rest of his life. 

To adopt Cameron, complete an adoption application at tenderlovingcats.org or schedule a meeting at Petsmart North Babylon, 1208 Deer Park Ave. by emailing meetthekitties@tenderlovingcats.org.

Available for adoption at Last Hope Animal RescueCharlie

Charming Charlie is an outgoing and friendly guy, so much so he rolls over when he meets you! Charlie had an echo because Last Hope’s vet detected something with his heart. He has concentric thickening in a ventricular wall which means he now takes a baby aspirin twice a week. Charlie would truly benefit from a home that will love him to pieces. You can meet Charlie in “purrson” at Last Hope in Wantagh on Weds.-Fri. 12:30- 6 p.m., or Sat, Sun 11 a.m.-6 p.m. if you are wearing a Face Mask.
