At the Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) of the Hamptons this Month

December 2020


SMUSHIE: This girl is a BIG mush, hence her name Smushie. Smushie came to ARF over five years ago, and sadly, she remains one of our longest residents at the Adoption Center. As a friend of ARF, you have probably met or heard of Smushie. With more than 2,000 days at the shelter, she continues to be overlooked making ARF more determined than ever to find her a home in 2020! We have made this our mission for these final weeks of 2020, calling it Operation Smushie, and we need your help!

Whether it is her size, or her breed, or the fact that she needs to be the only pet in the home, Smushie continues to be passed over by potential adopters. This seven-year-old cuddly, love bug, is a favorite among the ARF staff, and is as deserving as any, if not more so, of a family to love her for who she is. We will not stop until Smushie has a home. If love is what you want, Smushie is what you need.

Please help us spread the word about this beautiful girl, and together we can give her the life she has been patiently waiting for!

For more information contact or call 631-537-0400 x203.

All ARF animals are vet checked, spayed/neutered, microchipped and up to date on all vaccines.
