Long Island's Neediest Dogs and Cats Need Help Now!

Little Shelter Food Pantry Barren
Poor and Homeless Animals May Go Hungry In The Cold

Winter’s bitter cold and icy storms have claimed more victims. 4,000 pounds of food donations to Little Shelter Animal Adoption Center’s Animal Soup Kitchen (ASK) could not be delivered. Major highways in New Jersey were snow and ice covered and were closed down. Therefore, the truck with its precious cargo had to return to a Pennsylvania warehouse. Countless homeless cats as well as dogs whose impoverished owners are part of the ASK program rely on Little Shelter’s stock of provisions for their very lives. At this time of the year – when biting winds and killer storms take their toll on all of us – these poor dogs and cats face starvation. Little Shelter desperately needs your help to feed the hungry who are already suffering because of inadequate shelter.

Little Shelter director Maryann Chernovsky implores New Yorkers: “Frigid weather is upon us; many of these dogs and all of the cats must bravely face the cold. Don’t let them be hungry as well. Please do whatever you can to help them have the comfort of a full tummy. Please do not hesitate; act now. The situation is desperate. ”

Dog and cat food donations may be brought to Little Shelter at 33 Warner Road in Huntington between 1PM and 7PM on weekdays and from Noon until 5PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Monetary donations are also welcome and may be sent directly to Food Pantry at Little Shelter.

On behalf of all the innocent animals who need help, Little Shelter thanks you from the bottom of their hearts.

For more information about donations, please call 631-368-8770 Extension 230.
