Long Island Animal Shelter Suffers Severe Damage

Suffolk County’s Oldest No-kill Animal Shelter
Suffers Sandy’s Wrath.

Suffolk County’s Little Shelter no-kill animal shelter has suffered severe damage due to Hurricane Sandy and is asking for the public’s help to get back on their feet again as volunteers, staff, and supporters have been working around the clock in an effort to repair the damage.

“With this devastation our kennel 2 building is out of commission,”┬ásays Maryann Chernovsky, president of Little Shelter. “We are limited in our ability to rescue more animals in danger and that is what we are here for.


In the first two hours of the storm Little Shelter’s second kennel building, which houses dogs, was crushed by a large nearby oak tree. Later, two more trees pierced through the roof of the cattery.

The building was immediately evacuated and every animal was safely relocated.

If you’d like to help, Little Shelter will certainly need funding for repairs and is in dire need for foster and permanent homes for the loving cats and dogs.
