Due to the fact we have been still taking cats and kittens in from the cold we are in dire need of funds for spay and neuter for each of these cats and kittens. Some need extra treatment than others. Unfortunately most have been coming in needing more veterinary care than others. We need your help. Any and all donations are appreciated. We are a 501 c (3) not for profit. Your donation is totally tax deductable.
Please help us so we can continue.
Thank you!

We assisted with a hoarding case here on Long Island working with several other rescues. We removed 28 dogs from a home, 10 of which were under 8 week old Westies with no mother. 1 of the puppies passed away, 1 is in the ER and another is on the way to the ER now. They are suffering from malnutrition and severe dehydration. 7 are in foster homes and are getting supportive care. Please help us fight for them.

Why Spay or Neuter Your Dog / Cat ::. Adopt-a-Pet.com

Adopt a pet

Spay or Neuter your pet! Too much of a good thing 
is not a good thing… Shelters are overflowing.

Why Spay or Neuter?

If you think that just having one or two litters won’t hurt anybody, this fact should change your mind: according to the Humane Society of the United States, 10,000 babies are born in the U.S. on any given day. On that same day, however, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. Match those two statistics up, and you’ll see that there will never be enough homes for all the animals born in this country unless we all take responsibility for spaying and neutering our pets. Change begins with YOU! Spay or neuter your pet!

Blue Buffalo admits to bullshitting consumers

blue buffalo

Blue Buffalo admitted the truth in court yesterday: A “substantial” and “material” portion of Blue Buffalo pet food sold over the past several years contained poultry by-product meal, despite pervasive advertising claims to the contrary. Blue Buffalo asked the Court for additional time to file an Amended Complaint in the litigation, naming its ingredient suppliers as Defendants.
