At ARF Hamptons This Month

June Animals of the Month

CATHY: Cathy is a three-year-old low-maintenance kitty who recently came to ARF from a partner municipal shelter on Long Island. She enjoys the company of other cats, likes to be petted and is always down for a good belly rub. This black and white beauty with the gorgeous green eyes is sure to fit into just about any home.

JENNY: Jenny, a beautiful Collie/Corgi mix has been through a lot in just her three short years. She came to ARF back in July from our rescue partner No Dogs Left Behind. Jenny is quite shy with people and will need an experienced, patient family to love her. Jenny looks to other canines for comfort, so a home with another dog would be extremely beneficial to help build her confidence.
