One of Long Island's oldest no-kill shelters, Little Shelter is dedicated to saving all companion animals whose lives are in jeopardy. Through rescue from kill facilities, rehabilitation of sick and un-socialized pets, and a 100% spay/neuter program, Little Shelter hopes to end pet overpopulation and place all dogs and cats in loving homes. Located in Huntington, NY. Little Shelter is also a part of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC Animals.

Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter nestled on six wooded acres in Huntington, Long Island. Included on the grounds is Sheltervale Pet Cemetery, which has been the final resting place for companion animals for more than 89 years.

Funded in 2017
How we help: 

With help from a grant from Grey Muzzle, Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center will provide medical care for rescued at-risk senior dogs and work to find them loving homes. They assist other shelters by taking in some of their animals, thereby allowing them to rescue more homeless and unwanted animals. On average, 50% of their dogs are seniors. Continual training, socialization, medical evaluations, rehabilitation, and love is provided until adoption, no matter how long it takes. Each animal receives medical and behavioral evaluations, a warm and safe place to stay, plenty of nutritious food, and personalized attention. These dogs are provided with the comprehensive medical care needed to make them adoptable, saving senior dogs from euthanasia.
