We are all volunteers. We have no shelter facility. We focus our efforts on the animals at the municipal shelter. Many animals are foster animals in foster homes that need to be rehomed. We sponsor spay/neuter "Spay Days," humane education presentations and materials, sponsor adoption events of municipal shelter animals. Our mission is to end euthanasia as the means to control animal overpopulation.
Come Meet our Pets:
The animals listed will be for Suffolk Humane Members who are fostering animals, either lost, found, or stray, or animals that we have adopted from the municipal shelter and are now 'owned' by SHS. Each animal will have different contact information.
Our Adoption Process:
Adoption of cats through our PetSmart Adoption Partner Program. Contract cost is $80 per cat, includes spay/neuter, and will be current on shots. Require all animals in adopter's home to be spayed/neutered. Prohibit declawing, giving away cat, or selling cat.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
