WE WERE SICKENED AND APALLED READING THE STORIES OF ANIMALS DYING DURING THIS HEATWAVE.  ONE SO DESPERATE TO GET OUT OF THE HEAT HE HUNG HIMSELF AND ANOTHER THAT JUST DIED IN HIS YARD.  SO WHEN WE GET A CALL LAST THURSDAY JULY 20  AT LITTLE SHELTER FROM A DESPERATE COUPLE ABOUT THEIR DOG FORCED TO LIVE IN A VAN DURING THIS HEATWAVE WE KNEW WE HAD TO HELP.  THEY HAD FALLEN ON HARD TIMES.  SUDDENLY THEY LOST THEIR BUSINESS AND WERE WITHOUT A PLACE TO LIVE.  JILL AND TONY’S ONLY CONCERN WAS FOR THEIR BELOVED DOG “SNOOPY”.  SINCE JILL IS ON OXYGEN A KIND FRIEND TOOK HER IN, BUT DID NOT HAVE ROOM FOR TONY OR “SNOOPY”.  TONY & SNOOPY WERE LIVING IN AN OLD VAN WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING.  A LOCAL CHURCH IS HELPING THEM FIX THE VAN.

THEY TURNED TO LITTLE SHELTER.  WE NORMALLY DON’T BOARD ANIMALS AS OUR MISSION IS TO RESCUE CATS AND DOGS AND WE ARE ALWAYS FULL, BUT WE COULDN’T CLOSE OUR EYES TO THIS SELF SACRIFICING COUPLE & SNOOPY!  THIS HEATWAVE ALREADY TOOK THE LIVES OF 2 PIT BULLS LAST WEEK AND WE ARE SURE THERE WILL BE MANY OTHER CASULTIES BEFORE IT IS OVER.   WE WILL BE GIVING TIPS ON DO’S AND DON’TS FOR HELPING ANIMALS DURING HOT SUMMER TEMPERATURES.

Little Shelter in big trouble following Hurricane Sandy

"Little Shelter, Suffolk County Long Island’s first no-kill animal shelter has suffered severe damage from super storm Sandy. Little Shelter has made it through every hurricane since it's establishment in 1927 with only minor damage, Sandy's fury has all but changed that.

In the first two hours of the storm Little Shelter's second kennel building, which houses dogs, was crushed by a large nearby oak tree. Staff and volunteers immediately sprang into action to evacuate the building and ensure every animal was safely relocated. Later, as Sandy's wrath intensified, Little Shelter's cattery took the brunt of two more trees piercing through the roof.

Damage this severe will take time and money to repair - two things that Little Shelter needs desperately.

Volunteers, staff, and supporters have been working around the clock in an effort to repair the damage. "With this devastation our kennel 2 building is out of commission. We are limited in our ability to rescue more animals in danger" says Maryann Chernovsky, president of Little Shelter. "And that is what we are here for."

If you'd like to help, Little Shelter will certainly need funding for repairs and is in dire need for foster and permanent homes for the loving cats and dogs. To donate please visit www.littleshelter.com, call 631-368-8770, or visit Little Shelter at 33 Warner Road, Huntington, NY 11743"
