The main difference between an animal rescue and an animal shelter is that shelters are usually more focused on long-term care, while rescues are more focused on placing animals in homes as soon as possible. Little Shelter does both. Not only does Suffolk County’s oldest humane organization specialize in animal placement, the staff here takes care of those animals who are never adopted. No animal is ever cast aside at this no-kill shelter, no matter how sick or how needy. Little Shelter even runs a sanctuary on 110 acres upstate where long-term residents can spend their days being cared for, trained and socialized while they wait for their forever homes.
