Long Island always has a wide variety of special animals available for adoption, and this week is no different. Please read about some of the adorable adoptive children who want your house to be their new home forever.

But first, please help find Ettore, a cat who recently escaped baggage handlers at JFK, by sharing his information:

Available for adoption at the Smithtown City Animal Shelter


** Special request ** Get to know Pogo! The good-looking 5-year-old found his way to the TOS shelter as a stray. Pogo is a hind leg amputee and a bit shy. This cute boy would thrive best in a quiet home with a warm lap to snuggle up to. If you would like to meet Pogo please call 631-360-7575.

Available for adoption at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter


** Special request ** Harrison was brought to the TOH shelter as a stray by the police in August. He was found alone in a park. He cannot see out of one of his eyes, he is thin, fearful and incontinent. He is also very cute, loving, calm and enjoys a good fetch game. He’s also dog friendly and would love absolutely nothing more than to find his way into a loving home where he could spend the rest of his life with someone who loves and takes care of him. If you are interested in learning more and for the most up-to-date information about Harrison, please contact the shelter’s placement team at 516-785-5220 or email

Available for adoption at Last Hope Animal Rescue


** Special Wish and Senior Alert ** When you look at Sugar you get the strong feeling that she didn’t have an easy life in Virginia. It seems that she had one litter at a time and was owned by people who only wanted to use her for breeding. Sugar was neutered by Last Hope last week, and the vet also removed a small breast tumor from so many litters that it needs stitching. Sugar doesn’t act like a senior at all, lots of momentum in her step. She shares a kennel with a lab with vision problems and they are BFFs! Last Hope can’t undo the life Sugar had before they met her … but they try to make her as healthy as possible so that the final chapter of her life has many, many happy sides.

To meet Sugar by appointment, please complete a cat adoption application which can be found on the Last Hope website home page at

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America

** North Shore Animal League America waives adoption fees for approved adoptees for all cats six months and older through September.

Sassafras and Sam Hill

** Double Adoption ** When Sam Hill (Adoption # H210920) arrived as a kitten with his sister Sassafras (Adoption # H210919) last year, he was feeling pretty good about his prospects for a safer home life. Sassafras, on the other hand, was not yet convinced of their human companions. Sam is so devoted that he offered all his support and locked his sister in a wonderful nursing home to help them learn again to trust the people they adore. Now, these adorable 1-year-old siblings are looking for an experienced, quiet home (with kids ages 10+) that will help back up all of the good things they’ve learned from the Animal League America support team. Sam Hill is every bit as perfect as mini house panthers, and Sassafras watches his every move for confidence. Treats are the way to both of their hearts! If you have experience in killing cats, you are exactly the hero Sassafras and Sam Hill are looking for!

Taylor and money

** Double Adoption ** It was a very happy day last winter when heroes spotted two year old Taylor (adoption # BF3683) and Monkey (adoption # BF3684) abandoned outside to fend for themselves. All of that changed when they were brought to safety at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, where they were given a comfortable place to settle in … but first, their vets took excellent care of them. The monkey was diagnosed with hypercardiomyopathy, which is covered by the NSALA Pet Health Centers. With a successful plan, these guys want to meet gentle people who visit and enjoy treats and chin massages in their sunny room. Once quite shy, Taylor opened his heart to the possibility that people could be the heroes who gave him and his brother a safe place to land when they needed him most. After everything they’ve been through together, these besties deserve the chance to find a quiet home with older children to spend together forever. If this sounds like your home, please ask about Taylor and Monkey today!

Dipsy doodle

It’s hard to resist the adorable face of Dipsy Doodle (adoption # G26622)! This gorgeous 5 year old tabby needed help settling into her sunny room at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center when she first came out of a Georgia animal shelter. Although she shares this room with other cats, she prefers to be the only cat that takes her human’s lap away. Their visual impairment can make them easily startled. A home with children 12 and older who can help her learn the predictable patterns of household will allow her to transition smoothly into the family she deserves. You’ll find that the key to Dipsy’s heart is treats – she can’t resist a tasty bite, especially when she can enjoy it on the comfort of your lap!


Frosty (adoption # BF3763) may not have felt very happy about her recent home loss, but her acceptance into the NSALA family of shelters saved her life. This two-year-old beauty can add a cancer survivor to her list of achievements, and while she may be shy about receiving praise and attention, she deserves all of these accolades and more. Frosty is looking for a loving hero who can give her a quiet life so that she can enjoy every day to the fullest. A family with children from the age of 6 gives her the security she needs to settle into her new life. She is cared for at cost price through the NSALA Animal Health Centers in the event that she should have problems with her cancer history in the future. Offer her your lap and you will find that she always belongs there. One look into Frosty’s grateful green eyes is all it takes to know that you want her to be a part of your heart forever.


Two-year-old Money (Adoption # BF2824) had tough times when he recently lost his home and needed some loving encouragement to be optimistic about his future. This delicate tabby’s big eyes wonder when he’ll be able to deserve some rest, and NSALA assures him that his next home will be all of that and more because Money deserves the very best. Do you want to invest to be his hero?
