Town Of Huntington’s New Cat Shelter Announces GRAND RE-OPENING
Now under new management since the beginning of the year, Huntington’s no-kill cat shelter, managed by Little Shelter Animal Rescue, will host a grand opening on Saturday, May 12 2018. The event will be held from 12-3pm at the 104 Deposit Road shelter in East Northport. The cutting of the ribbon will be at 12:15pm.
“Our staff, volunteers and supporters have worked extremely hard to make the shelter perfect for the cats and to also get it ready to unveil to the public,” says David Ceely, the shelter’s executive director, “and since our soft opening we’ve found homes for over 50 homeless cats and kittens, we’re very proud of that,” Ceely says.
Since the shelter’s soft opening in January, the shelter has also provided free spays/ neuters and vaccines to over 60 cats in the town of Huntington, which helps reduce the amount of feral cats and their colonies in the area.
The shelter has gone through a complete transformation inside and out, including a new reception area, new appliances and a freshly painted building with the voluntary help of several Long Island Businesses. Those generous businesses will be recognized at the celebration.
Attendees of the event will enjoy refreshments, tours of the new facility and of course, the opportunity to adopt a new family member. “Now that we’re ready for business, it’s time to let everyone know where to come to get our help finding the perfect new family member,” explained Ceely.
The Town of Huntington Cat Shelter is a no-kill municipal animal shelter managed by Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, a non-profit registered 501(c)(3). Huntington’s cat shelter provides shelter, medical treatment and adoption to the homeless cats in the town. All pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped before being placed into loving homes.
