Adoption Corner!
Our super affectionate lovable Peaches is back up for adoption. Her people really tried to work out differences with their dog & Peaches; ultimately it didn't mesh.
Peaches is super affectionate with people. She's a young dog in need of more training. She's smart, willing to please & very food motivated (for easier training).
We'd love to see Peaches in a home with a yard in which to run and a family willing to help her learn.
Peaches would do best as an only dog with no young children due to size and "enthusiastic" greetings at times. Please meet her.
Forgotten Friends of LI (in NassauSuffolk Animal Hospital) 
27 Conklin St 
Farmingdale, NY 11735
(516) 719-0808
 Please meet beautiful, 2-3 yrs old, tabby/white Sabrina. She has gorgeous eyes, a sad story, and a sweet, shy personality. Her story began with being pregnant in an awful hoarding situation, going to the NYCACC and then being rescued by FF. At our rescue, all the stress took its toll and Sabrina began to give birth. She took care of her babies and now it's her turn for someone to take care of her. Thanks to wonderful volunteers, she is slowly coming out of her shell, and now loves chin scratches and attention. Let's give Sabrina's story a happy ending!

If one word had to describe Bella, it would be "round", but she is so much more. "Sweet" is to simple. Perhaps "endearing" would work. Thankfully, Pets Alive has plenty of words for Bella. She has quite a few words herself- mostly "meow," but we know what she's trying to say. "Feed me! Pet me! Look at me, I'm cute!" Bella is beautiful and friendly. Bella would do best as an only pet as she likes to have all the attention to herself, but she would be okay with another cat.
363 Derby Road 
Middletown, NY 10940
(845) 386-9738  
Gambit is a big chunk of love male Pittie mix. He's under 1 year old. He loves to play, especially with squeaky toys. He already knows his sit and paw commands. Gambit is a big boy and can be on the strong side, so he'd do best with older children. He'd prefer a home without cats.
Gambit is part of our training program and is learning his commands and manners. Come meet him!
