Lace up and leash up! North Shore Animal League America’s 6th Annual WALK & WAG is city-bound. For the first time ever, Walk & Wag is taking place in New York City. Join the hundreds of feet (and four times as many paws) for the cause, walking to help save the lives of homeless dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. On Saturday morning, Sept. 17, the animal-loving community, dogs, and their owners will gather at Pier 84 in Manhattan to get their steps in while raising funds and awareness to support Animal League America’s no-kill animal rescue mission. Walk & Wag will take place rain or shine.
Those who can’t participate in person can join the virtual Walk & Wag which enables animal-lovers to support the organization’s tireless animal rescue work from anywhere in the world. Already there are walkers signed up in more than 100 cities (including Nashville, Dallas, and Tucson) in 25 states (including California, Minnesota, and Mississippi) and counting!

**Double Adoption** Local rescues Elsie (Adoption #BF4151) and Evan (Adoption #BF4152) complete each other. Apart, Elsie was feeling overwhelmed by shelter life, but once reunited, they these 4-month-old siblings vowed to never leave each other’s side.

**Senior Alert** A medical crisis found 13-year-old Max’s (Adoption #VR0967) life turned upside down recently when his lifetime owner became too ill to care for Max’s special needs. Time spent with Animal League America’s veterinary team has put Max on a path to wellness, and with a treatment plan in place, he’s ready to get the golden retirement he deserves. This sweet senior has never lived with other pets and would prefer to stay the only pet in his home. While losing his first home was a difficult challenge to face, he’s overcoming that obstacle and relishing new friendships with humans who care for him at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. You may find him rolling around in catnip piles or busily hunting wand toys, but he always stops to give his visitors a friendly rub, welcoming them to his room.

They’re the life of the party in their room, and they’ll liven up your living room, too!

While these tiny, 6-month-old tuxedos are still nervous about the changes they’ve experienced, a loving, quiet home (with kids over age 6) will do wonders in assuring them a safe, loving household is where they’re meant to be!
Three-year-old Brother (Adoption #BF4196) is looking for a new family. This fantastic house panther lost his home recently when his owner moved and couldn’t take Brother with her.

Available for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter
Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pets of the Week, Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer! The Seinfeld kittens are all 6-month-old Domestic Shorthairs who were found abandoned in a tiny carrier while in a very unhealthy state. They had a severe upper respiratory infection called Calici virus. This virus was so serious that it caused Jerry and Elaine to each lose an eye. Despite these issues, these sweethearts kept fighting, and they are now happier and healthier than they’ve ever been. After all they’ve been through, they’re ready to find the purrfect family that they can love forever. We are hoping that they can keep their close bond with them in any future homes, so we would love for them to be adopted in pairs. Although they have fully recovered from their illness, any other cats in the home should be vaccinated for Calici virus. Call the shelter at 631-360-7575 for more information.
As always, thanks for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop…pass it on!
