All these incredible cats and dogs want for the holidays is a home to call their own. Adoption and fostering is the best way to help, but if that’s not in the cards, please consider donating your time or financially to your favorite shelter or rescue. Either way, remember to always adopt and never shop. Happy Howl-idays!

Special Requests 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.
And meet Squid. This handsome fella arrived at the shelter in August but is very stressed there. Squid is a lover who is working to control his assertive ways. He would benefit from a home with structure that defines clear rules and boundaries. He loves having his belly rubbed and he becomes mesmerized with the attention. Squid wants to please and given the opportunity; he will try very hard. Squid is a natural at staying close by and waiting for your next move so that he can accompany you. Squid is dog friendly and being recommended for kids 12+ no cats.
For more information about saving Bahama or Squid, please call the shelter at 631-643-9270.

**Double Adoption** Star-crossed lovers Alutia and Flux are still looking for a home for the holidays! These 3-year-old love birds met in the quiet room they shared in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, adjusting from two separate southern rescues. Alutia, who has been aloof around other cats, couldn’t resist the charm of her ever purrsistant beau. Now you’ll find her wrapping her impressive tail around Flux’s, as he allows her the space she needs when she wants her “me” time. No other cat can has found its way into Alutia’s heart quite so well as Flux has. A cat-experienced home (with children over age 12) is going to be a wonderful place for this happy couple to settle down and begin their furever together!
**Double Adoption** Seven-month-old Athens and 9-month-old Licorice were two older kittens who were both the odd men out of their litters. Fortunately for them, they found each other in a sunny room In Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. Now you’ll find Athens’ slightly more perky purrsonality bringing out the best in his shy buddy. A home experienced in settling in shyer kitties, with children over age eight, to provide a predictable setting will make Athens and Licorice feel very secure. Lots of adventures await them – adopt them and you’ll be a part of their future, too!
**Double Adoption** Safely transported to New York from Puerto Rico, Kevin and Joe are already a hit in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. Animal League America thinks they have an inkling life just gets better and better, especially because they’re making sure they get to share it with each other furever. You’ll find these cool 8-month-old cats an awesome choice for any family looking for a good time.
**Senior Alert** The only thing beautiful 8-year-old Beau doesn’t have going for him is a place to call home! This magnificent gent was abandoned and needed a place to recuperate from after the trauma and neglect. He warmed up immediately in the safety of our care. With his gorgeous face, mesmerizing eyes, and spectacular purrsonality, Beau should have no problem finding a home of his own where he can spend the rest of his life as an only pet. Wow! Those will be lucky humans who adopt Beau into their hearts and home.
AJ was recently rescued from a local, overcrowded municipal shelter and in need of surgery for his injured tail. This sweet 2-year-old angel has a heart as big as his head and we want him to feel safe the rest of his life. A cat-experienced family (with children over age 6) will help guarantee his happiness. You’re going to love rubbing those cheeks furever, and he’ll be happy as he makes up for all the time he’s waited his dream of a loving home to come true!
