Please remember to keep your furry friends safe this Halloween by steering clear of crowds, loud noises, chocolate and candy, and even jack-o-lanterns, which can include a mold/bacteria that is poisonous to pets. Additionally, be sure your pet’s tags and microchip information is up to date in the event they become lost.
Don’t have a bestie to dress up with this year? Head down to any of these local rescues/shelters and adopt or foster one today!
Special Request from the Town of Babylon Animal Shelter
At 12-years-old Bahama is a senior guy who lost his home when his family lost their home. Bahama may have a short span ahead of him, but wouldn’t it be wonderful for it to be in a home. Bahama spent his whole life as an unneutered male and he was used as a stud dog so living with another dog in a home could be challenging. Bahama is a sweet boy and he has lots of love to offer… and then even more love to offer. Bahama walks nicely on a leash and he does get tired easily especially on warmer days.
For more information about saving Bahama, please call the shelter at 631-643-9270.
Available for adoption through For Our Friends Rescue
Arriving straight from the Babylon Animal Shelter, meet Cece! This 5–7-year-old beauty is super cute and kinda chunky with a great and flirty personality. Cece loves people, she is quite the charmer. She has a bit of a skin issue that needs a bit of help, but Cece will be fully vetted before she is adopted and will definitely make someone very happy and lucky to call their own.
For more information about adopting Cece, email [email protected]
Available for adoption through Tender Loving Cats
Meet Tink! Born October 2019, this little ash colored beauty is vocal when it comes time for breakfast, lunch and dinner! She enjoys lounging by the windows, basking in the sunshine, birdwatching, soft brushes and sometimes some alone time. She does take a couple weeks to warm up to new environments and new friends but once she’s settled she’s definitely queen of the kingdom. To adopt Tink complete the adoption application at tenderlovingcats.org or by email [email protected]
Available for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter
Zendaya is a one-year-old Domestic Shorthair who arrived at the Smithtown Animal Shelter earlier this year. She is an absolute sweetheart who is playful and loves to spend time with people. Zendaya is positive for Feline Leukemia, which means she should be the only pet in the home or should live with other Leukemia positive cats or cats that are vaccinated for it. Leukemia cats typically live a shorter life, but they are filled with so much love to give and deserve the happiest homes to make the most of the time that they have but putting in the extra effort is worth it when you get some affection back from the wonderful Zendaya.
If you are interested in helping Zendaya start her next chapter, please call (631) 360-7575 for more information today!
Available for adoptions from Lend-a-Paw Inc.
Salem is one of three kittens rescued last month. At about 5-6 months old, Salem is very playful and has been with his brothers since birth. He is shy at first but once he feels comfortable and safe, he loves to run around and play with his toys. Salem would do best in a home with other cats and children. If your family is looking for an energetic kitten, Salem is your guy!
Ivy is a rare 5-year-old Siamese mix girl who was rescued after being seen on Craigslist! Her right eye does have a cataract but it has not affected her vision. Ivy is so beyond sweet and affectionate. She would be best in a home with other cats and children. If your family is looking for a cat that has a great personality, Ivy is the purrfect cat for you!
**Senior Alert** 9-year-old Smalls was rescued last year when his owner was unable to care for them because he had to enter a nursing home. Smalls has made many friends at the rescue and is a mentor for the younger cats. Smalls loves affection, being pet, and catnip. He would love a forever home that will give him all the love that he deserves.
KJ was surrendered to a high kill shelter after his owner became homeless. After facing euthanasia, his advocates fell in love with him and asked Lend-a-Paw to step in to save him, and they did! This 5-year-old American Bully is housebroken, affectionate, and intelligent. KJ would love a home with a yard to run around and play in. He would benefit from a companion female dog his size or being the only pet. He would bond with his owner almost immediately.
Buddy was surrendered after his owner no longer wanted him. No one can understand why though! This 6-month-old boy is beyond lovable and is a really good snuggler. Buddy knows a few commands like sit and down. He loves to play with his chew toys and his other foster siblings.

When 1-year-old Toby’s family declined the medical attention he needed, Animal League America stepped in to make sure he received treatment so he’d could go on with his life as a happy, healthy tabby boy. He’s recovered beautifully from bulla osteotomy surgery (he had an ear canal removed) and is getting to know his feline roommates at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center with a touch of caution as it’s his first time sharing a space with other cats. His experiences may have left him a little shy about new situations, but he has the spirit of a warrior when it comes to tackling new obstacles.

**Double Adoption** Nine-month-olds Noodle (Adoption #G28902) and Ramen (Adoption #G28903) were briefly separated when they first arrived on a transport from Georgia, making their reunion that much sweeter!

**Double Adoption** The universe revolves around Sunshine (Adoption #G28909) and her sister Moon (Adoption #G28910)! These gorgeous nine-month-old gals from Georgia have different approaches to new experiences, but that’s what makes them purrfect together. A residence (with children aged 10 and older) will provide them with the stability they need to ease into their first real home. While Moon likes to observe her surroundings with caution, Sunshine throws caution to the wind, leaping into the arms of visitors as if to say, “take us home today!” Smart girl! We have a feeling these sweet sisters will be enjoying life in a loving household very soon! Will it be yours?
After spending some time in a foster home with other cats, 6-month-old Pippa (Adoption #H211696) moved into Animal League America in hope of finding a permanent home. She’s gingerly taking in her new surroundings, and has a gentle, ingratiating energy that wins hearts easily. Her time outdoors may have left her FIV+, but the rest of her life will be enjoyed safely indoors where she’ll never have to worry about anything but when her next ear rubbing session will begin. Pippa is a wonderful choice for first time cat families. Ask about meeting her today; maybe you’re the car ride home she’s been hoping for!
