Scotty Has Been Adopted!

We are happy to announce that Scotty has been adopted! This is such a great ending to his journey. Little Shelter and all the staff and volunteers want to wish him and his new family all the best.

When Scotty arrived at Little Shelter, he was battling for his life against a cancerous mass on his liver. Thanks to Little Shelter's dedicated staff, Scotty received a new leash on life. His liver issues are now under control so he can live out his life in peace. Little Shelter’s medical staff also fixed Scotty's cherry eye which had been causing him discomfort.

Thanks to your support, Scotty was able to receive the medical treatment he so desperately needed. Now he'll be able to live out his years with a family of his very own.

Holden is available for adoption NOW at LittleShelter Sanctuary! 
Holden is an 8 year old lab mix who loves people. He is an oversized teddy bear that enjoys snuggling with his favorite people. Holden has a lot of fun running around in the Sanctuary dog runs and his handlers say that he listens very well to commands. He also enjoys going for daily walks through the Sanctuary trails and hanging out by the pond. Holden’s favorite hobby (other than snuggling) is eating and he will sit at your feet with pleading puppy eyes that say “give me cookies”.

“Holden is beautiful inside and out; he is full of love that he just wants to share with everyone and is such a kind soul.” – Holden’s handler Marie.
Holden is located near the Whitney Point/ Vestal/Binghamton area and potential adopters should call Little ShelterSanctuary to schedule an appointment to meet him.

Please call: 607-692-2036 if you are interested in adopting Holden.

Hope Has Been Adopted!

When Hope arrived at Little Shelter 5 years ago, she was very frightened and confused. She wouldn’t let anyone touch her and she struggled to adjust to being in a place where she had so many feline roommates. Our vet decided to help her adjust, by putting her on Prozac to help ease her anxiety. It was a slow process and our volunteers spent hours each day working to socialize Hope. 

Hope turned out to be an extremely affectionate cat, ready to prove that she could be someone's dream companion. She became famous around the cattery for jumping onto visitors' backs and riding around on their shoulder. Despite all of this, we still found her being overlooked by families. Then one day a gentleman came in looking for a special kitty of his own, and Hope jumped right onto his shoulders, nuzzling him affectionately.
 
He fell in love with Hope and took her home. We are so happy now that she is in her furever home where her dad has told us she has become the queen of the castle. Just goes to show, you should never give up hope…

LITTLE SHELTER'S DOG & CAT OF THE MONTH
Meet Cody:

Cody has a personality as good as his looks - he is a little luv bug of a dog who will run right up and jump in your arms. He demands attention from everyone he meets and gives a little "huff" if you don't pet him quickly enough. Cody will come up and rub against your legs like a cat. He's also a bit of a singer and will give a little howl to get your attention.
Meet Macy:

Macy is a sweet tabby cat who always looks alittle surprised. Her funny expression only adds to her personality, as a quirky cat who singles people out that she likes and follows them like a shadow. Macy likes to stay very close to the people she bonds with and begs for affection from them. We know she's just waiting for someone special to take her home. Could it be you?
