Meet Orchard

This sweet girl was picked up as a stray by an animal control officer and brought to the Brookhaven Animal Shelter. Sadly, no one has come forward to claim her so she’s ready for a new start in a loving home.

Orchard is estimated to be between 6 to 8 years old and weighs approximately 55 pounds. She’s housebroken, crate trained, and knows some impressive commands like sit, down, stay, and paw but would like to be in a home with no cats. 

Orchard is an absolute sweetheart who loves wiggling her way into your heart. She’s happiest when she’s by your side or curled up at your feet. Her gentle and affectionate nature makes her the perfect companion. 

If you would like to meet this well-mannered couch potato, please fill out a Matchmaker application at 631-451-6950

Amazing Grace

Meet Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace is a short-haired calico adult currently up for adoption at Little Shelter in Huntington. She is a calm young lady, who does enjoy finding high spots for naps! Stop by and meet her today! 631-368-8770 ext. 36

Frenchy and Rizzo

Meet Frenchy & Rizzo

These sweet siblings were abandoned in cat carriers on the side of the Long Island Expressway on June 26. Rescuers brought these two young girls, estimated to be 1 1/2 years old, to the Smithtown Animal Shelter where they needed a little time to adjust. Now they are little balls of affection and love and are ready for their furever home. The shelter staff hopes to have them adopted together. 631-360-7575
