Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center





Little Shelter Animal Adoption Center,

one of Long Island's oldest no-kill shelters, 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, Little Shelter is the only animal organization outside New York City that is a member of the Mayor's Alliance.

Little Shelter recently began the long process that will establish a one hundred acre animal sanctuary in Upstate New York. This state-of-the-art facility will provide lifetime care for unwanted pets that, for medical or behavioral reasons, are more difficult to adopt into a regular home situation.

.
The first residents of the sanctuary are dogs that have been in residence at our Huntington facility for a long period of time. Many of these dogs have been passed over for adoption or were adopted and returned for behavioral or medical reasons. These animals -- some as young as two years old -- cannot be expected to live out their lives in a shelter environment with limited space.

.
At the sanctuary, our dogs will have more room, less stress, and will undergo continual training, socialization, and rehabilitation with the hope they will someday find an adoptive home. No kennels or cages will be used to house animals and a resident staff will provide 24-hour care. The dogs will reside in apartment style rooms with a home-like atmosphere. Each dog's needs will be met daily through exercise, training, and love.

.
Funding and corporate sponsorship is still being sought for completion of the facility's construction.

.

The sanctuary provides needed space for animals that may never be adopted or are not suited for the shelter environment at the Long Island location. This allows Little Shelter-Huntington to focus its resources and operate more as an adoption center rather than a lifetime holding facility for difficult-to-adopt animals.

.
Our sanctuary is very small, housing 11 dogs, which enables us to give these dogs individualized daily attention. We are filled to capacity and not taking in any dogs. The dogs that do go to the sanctuary are dogs that have resided at Little Shelter Adoption Center and are deemed "no longer adoptable" due to behavior issues.
