Adoption Corner!
Almond, a young female cat, was rescued by Pets Alive from a horrific hoarding situation in June 2015. Sadly, we had to remove one of her eyes as it was badly infected. She has adjusted well and is ready for her forever home. While she's been here for almost 2 years, she is hopeful someone will come along and open up their hearts and take her home.

Please meet the adorable Hannah! This pint-size package of cuteness was saved from the BACC.  Hannah had been picked up as a stray in Brooklyn, and it appeared she had recently had a litter. No puppies were found so apparently she was no longer needed and was discarded like yesterday's newspaper. Although at a petite 35lbs she looks like a pup ~ she is a young lady approximately 4+ years old, sweet and playful, and can be with other respectful dogs (meet and greet necessary). What a lovely little flower she is! To meet this precious doll; call or email.

Forgotten Friends of Long Island

Lisette is as pretty and as lithe as her name would imply. She is a young cat that came in as a rescue; a bit shy at first but with patience and love, she will slowly warm up and reward you with her affection. She showers her best buddy Smokey with all the attention he can endure! He's as big as she's petite; this odd couple eats, sleeps, cuddles and plays together. The two are almost inseparable. If you are considering adopting Lisette and have room in your home and heart for a bonded pair - these two are it.

Tallulah is one beautiful, glamorous lady. Pulled by Forgotten Friends from the local shelter, and currently in a foster home perfecting her adoption skills. Tallulah would love to be your one & only. Now that Tallulah knows how great having a home & a loving family (or person) can be, she is patiently waiting to give all her affection to the right person. This lovely, large mixed breed is about 3-4 years old, trained, microchipped, up to date on all immunizations and ready to go home. Please contact Forgotten Friends to meet this sweet girl.
