A word from the Original Dream Girl, Sheryl Lee Ralph about Little Shelter...

 

Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter nestled on six wooded acres in Huntington, Long Island. Little Shelter has been dedicated to saving abandoned dogs and cats and placing them into loving homes since 1927. Age, physical condition, and socialization issues are never criteria for rescuing a dog or cat whose life is 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. All Little Shelter pets receive the highest quality medical care and are spayed /neutered before adoption. Every potential adopter is interviewed and thoroughly screened to ensure the best quality homes. Included on the grounds is Sheltervale Pet Cemetery, which has been the final resting place for companion animals for more than 85 years.  Little Shelter Animal Rescue has won Best of Long Island 8 straight years (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017) for Best Animal Shelter/Rescue! 

 Little Shelter is also a part of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC Animals. Little Shelter is the first shelter not located in New York city to be included in the alliance.

Sanctuary


Sanctuary


There comes a time when a rescue or no-kill shelter is faced with the issue of what to do with long-term residents that have been overlooked for adoption for behavioral or medical reasons time and time again.   When that time came for Little Shelter the answer was simple – provide a place where these animals can live their lives in comfort, with love and dignity.

 In 2000, Little Shelter opened the doors to Little Shelter Sanctuary, a peaceful and serene facility on 110 acres in upstate New York. At the sanctuary, our dogs have more room, less anxiety, and undergo continual training, socialization and rehabilitation with the hope they will someday find an adoptive home.  They live in apartment-style rooms with a home-like atmosphere, and the resident staff provides 24-hour care, making sure that each dog has their needs met with daily exercise, training and love.  A popular pastime amongst all the dogs is swimming in the 2 1/2-acre pond!
