Top Pet Pros on Long Island


Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center

Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center prides itself on ensuring that all dogs and cats in their possession receive the highest quality medical care and are spayed or neutered before they are adopted. Every potential adopter is interviewed and thoroughly screened to ensure the right fit for each individual dog or cat. Founded in 1927 by Anna Hunninghouse, Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center was established as a refuge where homeless animals could live in safety and comfort until a new home was found. Since its foundation, thousands of animals have passed through the doors of Little Shelter and the nonprofit’s outreach has grown from being community based to nationwide. Little Shelter continues to set the benchmark for other shelters to follow. 33 Warner Rd., Huntington, 631-368-8770, littleshelter.org
