This Month at the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons 🐈 🐕

ARF Animals of the Month: May 2019


Kerry: Almost three-year-old Kerry, with the beautiful green eyes, was found as a stray kitten with her sister, Baylee. Kerry enjoys the company of other cats, tasty treats and being perched near a window for bird watching. Kerry would love to find a home for both her and her sister where they can blossom to be wonderful kitty companions.


Wally: Wally is a five-year-old Dachshund mix who spent all his life living in a cage in a puppy mill. Wally is an affectionate dog who gets along with other dogs and likes to give kisses once he gets to know you. He has mastered basic obedience but does tend to guard his food and toys. He would do best in an adult only home where protocols can be in place to deal with his resource guarding. (Photo by Will Yennie)
