When: Sunday, April 29th, 3pm
Where: Little Shelter, 33 Warner Rd, Huntington, NY 11743
Long Island’s oldest humane society will be celebrating it’s 91st Anniversary on April 29th. Little Shelter will be holding a celebration and ceremony from 3-5pm commemorating its founding in 1927 as the oldest no-kill shelter in Suffolk County. The event will be open to the public where families can take a tour of the facility and see the animals after the ceremony. There will also be recognition given to some of Little Shelter’s supporters. “Little Shelter has come a long way over the decades and much of that is due to our outstanding supporters, volunteers and staff who invest so much of themselves.” Stated Maryann Chernovsky, Little Shelter’s Volunteer President.
Not only has Little Shelter maintained it’s stance to rescue animals in it’s own community, but has contributed to the cause on a national scale through it’s Passage to Freedom program. This year, Little Shelter helped rescue animals affected by the hurricane devastation in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. On one of the transports, Little Shelter and the Town of Huntington Dog Shelter teamed up to be able to transport more dogs to freedom. In addition to these life saving transports, Little Shelter also began managing the Town Of Huntington Cat Shelter at the start of the new year. The hope is the new facility will allow Little Shelter to provide greater outreach to Huntington residents.
Little Shelter is a non-profit no-kill animal shelter that relies on the support of the community to continue its mission. Every year Little Shelter extends its reach to help put an end to the overpopulation crisis that Long Island and other areas face with abandoned animals.
