Long Islanders celebrated Little Shelter's Animal Rescue 7th Annual Masquerade Ball at the Watermill event venue in Smithtown, New York on Thursday October 23, 2014 from 6pm-11pm. Guests enjoyed:a cocktail reception, dinner, open bar, live & silent auctions & live entertainment! All proceeds will benefit the Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoptive Center.
Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter situated on six wooded acres in Huntington, Long Island. Included on the grounds is Sheltervale Pet Cemetery which has been the final resting place for companion animals for more than eighty years. Suffolk County’s oldest humane organization, Little Shelter has been devoted to saving abandoned pets and placing them into loving homes since 1927. Age, physical condition and socialization issues are never criteria for rescuing a pet whose life is in jeopardy. Most of their companion animals have been saved from kill shelters on Long Island, in New York City and in several southern states. As a member of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, Little Shelter is regularly called upon by the city’s municipal shelters to rescue pets in need of rehabilitation. All Little Shelter pets receive the highest quality medical care and are spayed /neutered before adoption. Every potential adopter is interviewed and thoroughly screened to ensure the best quality homes for abandoned dogs and cats.
