Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center in Huntington recently celebrated its 86th birthday and renewed its call to the community, asking for volunteers, donors, sponsors and adoptees for the little guys.
While the shelter was devastated when a tree fell on the roof of one of the kennels during Hurricane Sandy and left it unusable, it recently received a $10,000 donation from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to rebuild. With a kennel down, the shelter has been unable to save many more lives due to limited space. "With the ASPCA's generous grant and the support of all our amazing donors we have begun rebuilding kennel two and hope to announce its reopening shortly," reads a statement on the shelter's website.
Little Shelter is a no-kill shelter, "dedicated to saving all companion animals whose lives are in jeopardy," the website reads. "Through rescue from kill facilities, rehabilitation of sick and unsocialized pets, and a 100 percent spay/neuter program, Little Shelter hopes to end pet overpopulation and place all dogs and cats in loving homes."
The shelter, located at 33 Warner Road, is open seven days a week, Monday-Friday, 1-7 pm, Saturday-Sunday, noon to 5 pm.
Call 368-8770 for information on adoptions, or to donate, sponsor an animal or volunteer. Also, visit the website at www.littleshelter.com.
