One of Long Island's oldest no-kill shelters, Little Shelter is dedicated to saving all companion animals whose lives are in jeopardy and has been voted Best of Long Island for the past nine years (2010-2018) for Best Rescue/Animal Shelter. Through rescue from kill facilities, rehabilitation of sick and unsocialized pets, and a 100% spay/neuter program, Little Shelter hopes to end pet overpopulation and place all dogs and cats in loving homes. They are also part of the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City’s Animals.
With a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization, Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center will provide medical care for rescued, at-risk senior dogs and find them loving homes. 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. Dogs are provided with comprehensive medical care needed to make them adoptable, saving senior dogs from euthanasia.
