2009 Closing of 2 Long Island Shelters, the Bad Economy, & Rising Medical Costs Force Little Shelter to Cut Back on Crucial Medical & Community Services
Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center www.littleshelter.com, one of Long Island’s oldest no-kill shelters dedicated to saving all companion animals in need, announced today that its Holiday Donation Drive has been extended until January 7, 2010. Little Shelter is under financial pressure and must cut back on services for needy animals due to a 30% decrease in donations, the 2009 closing of two Long Island shelters (Bide-A-Wee in Wantagh and Animal Haven in Flushing), and the bad economy, unemployment and foreclosures causing more animals to be surrendered to the shelter. Without holiday donations, Little Shelter will be forced to cut back on medical care for its 400 cats and 50 dogs and will reduce essential community animal care services.

Q: Our city apartment is so small that the bed has to be wedged into the guest room, wall-to-wall. We have a lot of company — we're both college professors with a long list of former students who come to visit. I'm looking for ways to make those visits more comfortable and pleasant.
A: Repeat after me: It's not what space you have; it's what you do with it.

If you have a foodie on your holiday gift-giving list, rejoice. With all the kitchen gadgets, gizmos and heavy artillery out there, shopping should be a piece of cake.
(Speaking of shopping, there are just 14 days left until Christmas. If you're still hunting for Hanukkah gifts, you better get cracking. You've got until sundown.)

When the weather outside is frightful, you really want a coat that is not only delightful but also very warm. Hey, you might look swell strutting about in that purple, velvet trench coat, but is it really going to keep out that icy wind and rain?
Maybe Santa will bring you one of the season's hottest fashion items to warm you up: a down vest or coat. Oh so stylish and yet so functional. Now, don't we all love that?
