Bark Party by Save a Pet and Lynx NY

In the United States, there are approximately 7.6 million pets in shelters and even many without a home. Each year around 3.2 million pets are rescued and find their fur-ever home, while the others are left without the proper love and care needed.

Save a Pet in Port Jefferson Station, a non-kill, non-profit animal shelter, is teaming up with Lynx-NY to help these animals in need. We are proud to announce, we will be hosting a fund raiser at LI Pour House in Port Jefferson Station, with the goal of raising funds to support the Save a Pet Animal Rescue, and in addition match families and pets together with an onsite adoption option!

Come join in on the fun! We will be having a raffle, DJ, face painting, family activities and so much more.

Pooh the Black Bear at Brookhaven Wildlife Center

Support the Brookhaven Wildlife Center by helping raise money for Pooh the resident Black Bear.

According to the Brookhaven Wildlife Center, Pooh says: “I am getting older, I am 19 years old now and have been struggling over the past few months, getting old is hard on us bears too. I have Osteoarthritis and it causes me pain and stiffness and I limp when I walk. Thankfully my fantastic veterinarians found a medication, and my wonderful caretakers give it to me when I need it. It helps me to feel better and it doesn’t hurt as much when I walk. The problem is it costs A LOT of money…..$400 a month!

Toy Collection for HELP Suffolk

Bring smiles to those in need this Christmas season.

HELP Suffolk in Bellport helps house families who have reached hard times and they help them get back on their feet. As a parent, when you reach the point of looking for help and then it is the Holiday season it brings on more stress. HELP Suffolk relies on donations from the community.

We would like to help the parents who would love to buy their child a gift but, do not have the extra means to do so. As a parent the most heartbreaking thing during the holidays would be not to be able to provide your child with a present. The joy of watching your child opening a present with excitement is something we all look forward to. But, imagine you really could not buy a gift for your child. Let’s give back during the most wonderful time of the year.
