5 Pets Up For Adoption at Long Island Shelters

What do five cats and a dog have in common? They are all searching for their forever homes. Meet some of the most adorable adoptables Long Island has to offer right here!

Jade

Available for adoption at Almost Home Animal Rescue:

Traveling all the way from South Carolina to find her forever home, Jade is a beautiful 1-year old lady who is super sweet and loves to be pet. Another awesome fact about Jade is that she loves other cats, so if are looking to add a new best friend to your home, Jade is your gal! For more information about adopting Jade, contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at almosthomeli.org or call 631-627-3665 today!

Nelly

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

If you think Nelly’s nose is cute, you should check out her personality. Nelly (reference #MA3826) is a curious, 2-year-old young lady that wants to learn everything about you. Her youthful energy will keep you on your toes as she explores her very first home before settling in with you for some cuddles.  

A home with children 12 and up in age will be ideal for her as her exuberance can be a lot for young children to keep up with. Water fascinates her so prepare to have company when you brush your teeth. If you can keep up with her demands for ear rubs, you’re the perfect match to her adorable personality! 

Reach out to DoritS@animalleague.org if you’d like to learn more about Nelly.

Nigel and Darwin

A local hero discovered these five-year-old domestic short hair pair. Darwin (the tabby) and Nigel (the tuxedo) (reference #’s BF2752 and BF2753) were in desperate need of help and this bonded duo found a safe space with North Shore Animal League America. 

Nigel is delighted to acquaint himself with new human friends and his trust is easily won with the slightest bit of attention. Darwin watches with wide, trusting eyes and melts with just a hint of tenderness.

In NSALA’s care, they discovered these brothers have mild cases of hyper-cardiomyopathy, a medical condition easily cared for and covered through their fully accredited medical center. These sweet boys can’t tell us how they ended up needing help, but NSALA is delighted to promise them a bright future. All they need is a new hero to scoop them up and bring them home for good! 

If you’re interested in adopting our Dynamic Duo, please contact DoritS@animalleague.org

Magenta

Magenta (reference #R165368) was a lucky young lady when her rescuers brought her to our Medical Center where she was treated for a palette wound. Now fully recovered, it is her spirit that needs mending. She’s made great strides in her calm foster home where she has befriended the family cat.  

A whole new Magenta is emerging as she gains confidence from her companion. NSALA is seeking a peaceful, predictable home with older children and adults experienced with fearful cats who will give her patience and a comfy bed. Because she has gained so much from her feline tutor, she will do best with a confident cat in her new home. 

Could Magenta be your newest family member? If so, please email DoritS@animalleague.org

Butch

Available for adoption at Second Chance Rescue:

Butch. Is. A. Sweetheart!

Butch is an awesome boy, he is so calm and loving with a stellar temperament, and he is so handsome to boot. At just 2 years old, this beautiful boy was slated for euthanasia at a high-kill municipal shelter, when Second Chance Rescue received a plea for help.

The volunteers were all begging for his life, and Second Chance saw his pictures and videos, playing with other dogs, and being so sweet and loving with people, they couldn’t let him go down.

For more information, visit nycsecondchancerescue.org or email Rescue@nycsecondchancerescue.org.

Champ

Available for adoption at Second Chance Rescue:

Are you one of those people that gets excited over the smallest things? Do you need someone to celebrate tiny victories with you? If you answered yes, then Champ is your guy.

He is the happiest dog ever! Just look at this guy’s photo! Champ is a sophisticated 6-year-old for those of you that aren’t into puppy shenanigans. He is the perfect size for outdoor activities at 51 pounds. To adopt Champ & enjoy daily celebrations please apply at nycsecondchancerescue.org

Pinto

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

Pinto was found as a stray in October 2017. He was found on someone’s property and followed the homeowner inside her home (heart breaking, we know). Pinto is very, very playful with other dogs, he is so nice and friendly in fact, that the shelter uses him to test other dogs!

Pinto is though, a very scared dog, who flinches if you put your hand near his face and jumps at almost every strange noise. He will need a very savvy, patient owner who will be willing to work with him on these fears. Pinto also has some training, as he knows plenty of commands, and walks very well on leash.

If you are interested in adopting Pinto, please call the shelter at 516-785-5220, visit them at: 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh, or email adoption@tohmail.org.

Biggie

Available for adoption at Almost Home Animal Rescue:

Six-year old Biggie is a big deal. This snuggle bunny came to Almost Home Animal Rescue from a farm out east where they help feral cats. Biggie was brought to Almost Home since he is definitely not feral, and is just looking for a home to call his own.

He is very friendly and adores human attention. He loves to be pet and to sit on your lap! And if that’s not enough to sell you on this little meatball, Biggie is great with other cats and kids too.

For more information about adopting Biggie, contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at almosthomeli.org or call 631-627-3665 today!

Nico

Available for adoption at Little Shelter:

Nico is a 2-year-old Chihuahua mix, and in addition to his striking good looks, he is a happy, fun-loving, and ready to party pooch. Full of energy and playfulness, he will keep you on your toes, though when you’re ready for some downtime, he’s the perfect cuddle buddy. From the tip of his nose to his jaunty plumed tail, this one will steal your heart at first glance…”and then my soul saw you and said, oh there you are. I’ve been looking for you.” 

Symphony

Symphony is a cute little calico whose prior home was on the street. Even though the people at Little Shelter are nice and the food is great, living on the inside at Little Shelter with so much activity going on around her can take some getting used to but she’s trying. With a little patience and love, Symphony will make your heart melt in an instant!

For more information about adopting Nico and Symphony, please contact Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center at 33 Warner Rd, Huntington, 631-368-8770.

Available for adoption at the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter:

Joey and Hailey are two affectionate kitties who would love to come home with you. These two are the best of friends and have spent their entire lives together. They are both adventurous and out-going kitties who have a knack for mischief (the good kind that keeps you laughing!). They adore people and seek out affection from all our visitors.

For more information about adopting these 2 peas in a pod,  please contact the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter located at 104 Deposit Rd, East Northport, 631-651-9788.

As always, thanks for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop…pass it on!

 

Last 5 Cats at Shelter Being Evicted Among Pets Up for Adoption on Long Island

Rather than turn away a shelter cat or dog that may not appear perfect on paper, why not embrace the challenge of saving a life?

For example, did you know that FIV-positive cats can still be healthy, strong, and live rich, full lives? Did you know that FIV is feline specific, meaning people and other types of pets cannot get it? In fact, interactions between FIV and non-FIV cats — including grooming, sharing food/water bowls, sharing litter boxes, and playing together — have no known risk of transmission.

This just goes to show that all of our Long Island homeless animals deserve a new beginning, so why not head out and change a life today?

Last Chance to Help Pets4Luv Animal Rescue:

Pets4Luv is a wonderful animal rescue that is sadly being evicted from their location in the Source Mall in Westbury. Sadly, it is confirmed that Pets4Luv will be shutting its doors on Monday, April 29. There are still five cats that remain without a foster or adopter. If you can adopt or foster, please contact Dave or Lori at info@pets4luv.org or call the rescue at 516-832-8200. Please also continue to share their story and help raise the money they need to relocate and rebuild so Pets4Luv can continue to save lives and bring families together. 

Coach

Available for adoption at Second Chance Rescue:

Coach is only two years old and came to NYC Second Chance Rescue after being hit by a car. The great news as that Coach has made a full recovery and is now ready for a foster or forever home! He is good with cats, dogs and kids! Please apply to adopt/foster this cutie on the rescue’s website: nycsecondchancerescue.org

Valetina

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:

Valentina is the shelter’s pretty, petite, fawn baby girl who came in as a stray in February. She is only 42 pounds, so she’s the perfect size for almost any home. Not only that, but Valentina is playful with other dogs.

She was also cat tested, and did well, so she may be able to go home and live with a cat. She is also friendly, and a little shy when meeting new people. This sweet girl is sure to make someone very happy.

Staff and volunteers love this gal, and truly hope she does not have to wait too long for her forever family to come in and fall in love with her. If you are interested in learning more, please call the shelter at 516-785-5220, visit them at: 3320 Beltagh Avenue, Wantagh, or email adoption@tohmail.org.

Katie

Available for adoption at Bideawee:

Meet Katie! Doesn’t this 3-year-old lady have quite the striking face? Donning a brilliant copper and ebony mask upon a white and be-speckled coat, Katie certainly stands out.

If her fantastic coloration and beautiful face doesn’t pop for you, then her jubilant personality and spirited hellos certainly will. Katie loves to make friends with every person who crosses her path. She is a genuine social butterfly.

Always ready for adventure and up for an expedition, she is seeking an adult-only family that shares in her active lifestyle and lust for exploring. She is truly a perfect medium-sized dog and would be the ideal companion for any energetic home that is seeking a pooch that is neither too large nor too small. 

Alice

This little 3-month-old beauty is named Alice. She is a one-of-a-kind charmer that we all simply adore. Perhaps it’s her bashful and tender-hearted ways, or maybe it’s her soft and precious coat.

However, most agree it’s her smile. Alice graces us with her charming little expression each day. She likes to don what is called a “submissive grin,” and shows off her pearly whites to us.

This is her puppy way of saying she wants to be friends and means no harm. We can’t help but laugh and swoon for Alice. We’re quite sure you’ll fall in love with her just as easily too. 

Precious

This gorgeous 1-year old lady is named Precious. Tender-hearted, beautiful and affectionate, she truly lives up to her name. Bashful, but ever-so loving, Precious has stolen the hearts of the staff and volunteers at Bideawee.

Her gentle and unassuming nature is hard not to adore. Weighing in at 38 pounds, she is also the perfect size for any family seeking a new family member that is neither too large nor too small. She’s the idyllic in-between.

Jungle

This handsome boy is Jungle. He is an entertaining 5-year-old kitty who knows how to charm, beguile and make the crowds roar with laughter. This adorable tuxedo feline is very people-oriented and loves to play and engage with his friends.

Being active and enthusiastic, Jungle tends to get a little carried away at times and may play with extra vigor. Therefore, we recommend a mature, experienced and adult-only family for this fun fellow. Mr. Jungle might be able to live with another active kitty, but this should be considered on a case-by-case basis.

He would just blossom if his future household could provide a good amount of space, exercise and healthy outlets for his energy and curiosity. 

For more information about adopting Katie, Alice, Precious and Jungle, contact the Bideawee adoption center located at 118 Old Country Rd., Westhampton, or call 631-684-0079.

Daisy

Available for adoption at Almost Home Animal Rescue:

Yes, it’s true, a daisy is a delicate and gorgeous flower typically associated with the ladies, but this Daisy is a handsome fella, who was recently surrendered when his owner passed away. Daisy is a 10-year-old guy who is just as sweet as they come. He loves to give head butts and purrrrs really loud to show affection.

Super friendly and very affectionate, Daisy is now looking for a new furever home. If you are searching for a true gem of a cat, look no further! Contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at almosthomeli.org or call 631-627-3665 today!

Tammy

Available for adoption at Little Shelter:

Tammy is a 3-year-old Beagle mix who traveled all the way from Puerto Rico to find her new family. She is a very sweet girl who gets along with other dogs and likes to curl up like a cat on your lap. Tammy likes playing in the doggie pens with her friends and rolling around in the grass. She’s a young dog with a lot of love to give but is waiting for that special someone to give it do.

Cupid

Most people think she was named for Valentine’s Day, but Cupid actually arrived at Little Shelter back in December of 2015 along with her sister Vixen. That was the year they got the best present of their young lives…a warm place to sleep and some yummy food. Now, it’s time for the best of the best presents, a forever family!

For more information about adopting Tammy and Cupid, please contact Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center at 33 Warner Rd, Huntington, 631-368-8770.

Maxwell

Available for adoption at the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter:

Meet Maxwell, the 9-year-old kitty who just wants to be held. He loves being at the center of all the action and is very demanding of cuddles. There’s just one thing: Maxwell is FIV positive.

Maxwell might have FIV but he’s a healthy cat. As long as he’s cared for and sees a vet on a regular basis, he can still live a long normal life. In fact, FIV is so slow to progress that most FIV-positive cats die of old age! This month marks Maxwell’s 1-year Catt-a-versary since he came to live at Town of Huntington, but volunteers and staff would really like to celebrate him going to a furever home.

For more information about adopting Maxwell, please contact the Town of Huntington Cat Shelter located at 104 Deposit Rd, East Northport, 631-651-9788.

As always, thanks for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop…pass it on!

Dog in Shelter Since 2017 Among Pets Up For Adoption on Long Island

Spring has sprung so why not hop on down to your local animal rescue or shelter and adopt a new best friend today?

Can’t adopt but want to help animals in need? Why not attend the Nassau County SPCA’s Just Desserts event 6 p.m. May 9 at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City. Not only do all proceeds benefit the NCSPCA, but there will be a huge Chinese auction and tables of delicious desserts too!  To purchase tickets to the “Just Desserts” event, and to learn more about the prevention of cruelty to animals, visit nassaucountyspca.org today!

Baron

Available for adoption at Bideawee:

Meet Baron! Rescued just last month, 1-year-old Baron has a way of staring lovingly into your eyes, as if he knows and understands your soul, and loves you immediately. He is very people-oriented and loves spending time with all his friends at Bideawee. He is inquisitive and curious too!

Baron enjoys a good stroll and has a love of discovery. A fun-loving, active home who shares in his lust for life and adventure would be ideal!

Luke

Four-year old Luke has been waiting at Bideawee for his forever home since September 2017. Luke has that classic mixed-breed look with a soft fur coat, white patches on his chest and nose and a big grin on his face! Luke also has a special characteristic that sets him apart from his canine companions: he only has three legs.

This unique difference doesn’t slow him down at all though. He’s still active, playful and enjoys his daily strolls. In fact, being outside is one of his favorite activities.

He loves the fresh air and he’ll start to really relax after a long walk or an energetic game of fetch. Luke is very sweet with people and enjoys snuggling. However, Luke is pickier about other animals, so he’d flourish being with an adult-only family where he can be the only four-legged family member. 

Casanova

Meet one of Bideawee’s newest cats, Casanova! He is a handsome 2-year-old boy that is as charming and flirtatious as his name might suggest. Bold and cavalier, Casanova enchants in all his ways.

Just caress him once and he will melt into your hands and into your heart with endless love. Being so affectionate, he’d be wonderful in almost any household. 

Amana

This gorgeous girl is named Amana. She is a six-year-old Domestic Shorthair mix who came to Bideawee in December 2017 after her owners could no longer care for her. Amana is a special cat in need of a gentle and loving home.

She can be quite loving once she’s comfortable in her surroundings, but she’s very nervous in new places. She requires a patient owner who will help her feel at home in a new environment. Once Amana trusts you though there’s no greater feeling.

She’ll snuggle up to you for attention. Either rubbing along your legs or curling up against your side. Amana lives with other cats at Bideawee and may be able to go home to another friendly feline.

Casey

Available for adoption through the Nassau County SPCA:

Even though Casey was hit by a car and left to die, it doesn’t hamper this little girl’s spirit at all! This special-needs sweetheart would truly make an amazing companion and would show her new owner everyday how much having her own home would mean to her. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Casey, please email mmora@ncspca.us for more information.

Cleo

Available for adoption at Almost Home Animal Rescue:

As handsome as he is sweet, Cleo is the man of the hour over at Almost Home Animal Resuce. This 1-year old guy is as friendly as they come and loves to be pet. As an added bonus, this cool little guy loves the company of other cats too, making him the purrfect addition to any home.

If you are searching for your special buddy, look no further! Contact Almost Home Animal Rescue at almosthomeli.org or call 631-627-3665 today!

Rattan and Wicker. Photo Credit: Ted Lim

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America:

Rattan and Wicker (reference #’s H209619/20) are a devoted pair of sisters! Rescued locally, Wicker is quietly exploring her surroundings while Rattan makes her feelings very clear as she sings for your attention. These young beauties will thrive in a peaceful, predictable home.  

Just a little gentle persuasion will win them over and they’ll quickly exemplify why two cats are better than one. These girls come alive in the company of other cats but will do best with children 12 and up in age who can assure them they are safe and loved.   

Please email DoritS@animalleague.org for more information. 

Autumn. Photo Credit: Ted Lim

When Autumn (reference # H209638) arrived at our NSALA’s Adoption Center from a local rescue, she was frightened and confused. After a short time with our devoted staff and volunteers, this beautiful older kitten has blossomed into a curious friend who enjoys the company of her feline companions. All Autumn needs to succeed in her first home is a nurturing human and a feline friend or two to show her what life in a home is all about.

Ideally a household with children 10 and up in age and a confident cat who can show her the ropes of her new life will be the perfect family for Autumn to spend her life with! Please email DoritS@animalleague.org for more information. 

Lego. Photo Credit: Ted Lim

Lego (reference # R166271) is no puzzle! This charming adult male (7 ½ years old) has ingratiated himself to everyone he’s met since being rescued from a North Carolina municipal shelter.  Everything about Lego fits together purrfectly, from his stunning fluffy coat, to his amiable personality.  This quiet feline seeks a connection with a human who can appreciate him as much as his shelter family has.  Lego is FIV+ and prefers the predictable peace of a home where he’s the only pet. If he sounds like the piece of your heart that’s been missing, come meet him this weekend!  Please email DoritS@animalleague.org if you’re interested.

Can You Help Pets4Luv Animal Rescue?

Pets4Luv is heartbroken and scared, they received a court decision last week that gives the new owner of the Source Mall the right to evict them.

Josie

Available for adoption from Second Chance Rescue:

Miss. Josie has been waiting for a foster or an adopter for just about a year now, and volunteers and staff aren’t quite sure why. Josie is such a good dog but is starting to get very sad not having a home for so long, and we would be over the moon if someone would just give her a chance, even by fostering her. Josie is about 2-3 years old and came to Second Chance Rescue from a high-kill shelter when her time was up. She does well with most other dogs but likes to be the female in charge, so living with a submissive male would be best. This girl is so deserving of her very own home.

Apollo

Sweet Apollo comes from a rough start and is longing for a safe and loving home of his own. Any home would be lucky to have this guy-he is quite the charmer! Apollo is wiggly and gentle, with a constantly wagging tail and a smile that draws in everyone who passes him by.

An absolute gentle giant, Apollo was dumped at the ACC because his owner moved to housing that wouldn’t allow him (absolutely no fault of his own!). Apollo is housebroken, is super affectionate, and is generally a happy, laid back doll. When he sees other dogs passing him on a leash, he seems interested but stays completely calm. Already neutered, he’d be the perfect companion for someone looking for a senior-aged chiller who’s past his puppy days but still has plenty of love to give.

If you can adopt or foster Josie or Apollo, check out  nycsecondchancerescue.org and fill out an application today!

Catch

Catch loves his toys and lived with a large and small dog. Catch also is a super star in his doggy play groups. Catch will do best with an experienced owner who can get him comfortable meeting new people. If you are interested in learning more about Catch, please call the shelter at 516-785-5220, visit them at 3320 Beltagh Ave,, Wantagh or email adoption@tohmail.org

Ms Cleo

Available for adoption at Little Shelter:

SPECIAL SENIOR ALERT: Miss Cleo is Little Shelter’s Director’s Choice! At 15 years of age, Miss Cleo was found wandering the streets of one of the worst parts of Huntington Station. When her family was contacted, they didn’t want her anymore and left her sitting in the Town of Huntington dog shelter. Poor Miss Cleo waited patiently for a family that wouldn’t be coming to get her. Despite all of this, she never lost her spirit and only showed love and kindness to everyone she met.

Having a long-time partnership with Little Shelter, the town reached out to Little Shelter alerting them of Miss Cleo’s plight. They knew Little Shelter could give her the care she needed and help her find a family that would cherish her the way she should have been all along. Of course, Little Shelter stepped in to help and Miss Cleo.

Miss Cleo is a happy go lucky old lady, who’s always eager to go on a walk. Don’t let her age fool you, this gal has plenty of spring in her step and many adventures to still go on. She’s a lovable dog who always wants to make friends and give kisses. When she’s not out on a walk, Miss Cleo loves to burrow under warm blankets or cuddle with her favorite staff members.

For the month of March, Miss Cleo’s adopter will be sent home with a month’s supply of food (which she loves), a great big basket of toys, a big fluffy dog bed, a free vet visit and specially priced adoption fee.* She is spayed, up to date on all her vaccinations and microchipped!

If you or someone you know can temporarily foster, or better yet adopt any of their sweet kitties, please email owner Dave directly at info@pets4luv.org  (subject: I would  like to foster for you). Cats are always better in a foster situation as in opposed to a shelter, so please help if you can.  For more information about adopting or fostering Clint, Marina, Smokey or TC, contact Pets4Luv Foundation @pets4luv.org or (516)-832-8200.

She’s also made a new BFF, her roomie, Marshall. They often are found playing together. The only thing better than adopting one cute cat is adopting two!

Smokey

Smokey is super shy, but very sweet. She has befriended a new buddy named Ink and they love to cuddle together. Given time to adapt she will make a great addition to your family. 

TC

TC (Top Cat) is a sweet, super shy, quiet little lady who is waiting for her forever family. TC came to Pets4Luv in December 2015 she was only 7-months old. She likes when the rescue is quite which is when she likes to go about her shenanigans of playing and climbing the cat tree in her room. She’s a petite little lady who would do best in a quiet home with people willing to give her the she needs to adapt to a new environment.

The No Kill Project: A True Blue Rescue

With more than a million animals euthanized nationally due to lack of space in our country’s shelters, animal rescue organizations are often leaned on for help.

One nonprofit that stands out is The No Kill Project, an animal rescue and welfare organization working to create a no-kill society through education, advocacy, sterilization, and adoption of shelter and community animals. Having been involved with many rescues on Long Island and across the country, their efforts have saved thousands of lives to date.

“By coordinating large, difficult and tedious rescue efforts to help bring animals to safety, The No Kill Project often becomes the last hope of survival for animals in need,” says Isabel Pymm, the nonprofit’s president.  

She recently traveled to communities that Hurricane Harvey hit. She and a group of volunteers brought 24 cats and dogs back to Long Island for care and foster placement. But natural disasters aren’t the only time they’re called.

“There are so many stray dogs in the south part of the United States,” she says. “They walk around as stray cats do here in New York. Backyard breeding, puppy mills, and absence of laws and funding contribute to massive overpopulation, and healthy dogs are often euthanized at shelters only because there is not enough space to house them. This is why rescue organizations such as The No Kill Project often visit Southern states in hopes to rescue dogs that would otherwise be killed due to lack of space.’’

On LI, a large population of stray cats often suffer at the hands of people and harsh winters. To help combat this issue, The No Kill Project advocates trap, neuter, return (TNR), which works to humanely trap feral cats, sterilize them and return them to their colonies where caretakers provide food and shelter for them. Any adoptable cats or kittens trapped during TNR rescue efforts receive veterinary care as needed, and are then placed in adoptive homes.

The No Kill Project is 100 percent volunteer based and relies heavily on foster families. All monetary contributions help cover veterinary care expenses, spay/neuters, vaccinations, micro-chipping, and foster care, and are also used to help fund community educational programs.
