At The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons This Month

July 2020 Animals of the Month

Simba: Simba is nine years old, and she is a rarity among orange tabbies, as most are typically male. Simba was found in a feral cat colony in Wainscott after a volunteer noticed she had loads of affection to give. Adult cats like Simba quickly become part of the family and you’ll wonder why you waited so long to adopt her.

Sahteene: Gorgeous Sahteene is a three-year-old Shepherd mix who is very friendly with people, but she can be selective about her canine companions. She is crate-trained and on her way to being housebroken. Sahteene doesn’t care for cats and at times can be fearful of young children, making her a perfect one and only. (Photo by Will Yennie)
