In Memory of Sue Farrell

It is with great sadness to have to announce that our beloved Sue Farrell, has passed away from cancer at the young age of 47.    She was the heart and soul of SAVES and will be greatly missed by us and everyone that knew her.    She was a very kind, warm, generous, and caring person and always had a smile for all and a warm cuddle for all of her feline friends.    Our hearts are broken but we will remember her always.

“Goodbyes are not forever, are not the end; it simply means we’ll miss you until we meet again.” Sue

A message from SAVES

The growing number of stray and feral cats on Long Island is astounding.  Just take a look at this poster and see what one unspayed cat can amount to in just a short time.   As much as SAVES would love to be able to assist people with this problem in their community, we have limited resources and sadly not enough volunteers.      What we can do, is help by lending out humane traps and offering advice on how to safely trap the cat (s) and where you may be able to obtain low cost spay/neuter in your area.    Here is a link to a very good resource with information on how to conduct TNR (trap, neuter, return)  in your community.  They provide very useful information.



SAVES will be hosting an Adopt-a-thon at the Riverhead Petco on August 20 & 21.   Please come visit and see all of our beautiful kittens & cats that are waiting for their forever homes!     IMG_2453IMG_2457

Interested in Volunteering?



These are some of the ways in which you could help SAVES…


There are so many managed feral cat colonies on the North Fork/Riverhead area.  We could always use assistance with daily feeding of these colonies.

Trapping/Transport/Post spay-neuter recovery

We could always use more assistance in these areas, especially during kitten season.

Foster kitten caretaker

If you love being surrounded by adorable furry little things-and won’t fall completely in love with them all-ask about foster opportunities!

Cat socializer

If you think you’re great with cats, you can help by “socializing” them before they go up for adoption.


We are always in need of food for our feral cat colonies that SAVES volunteers oversee.  We also accept monetary donations that will go to the care & welfare of the kittens & cat colonies.

Contact SAVES for more info!



Colony Cats.

These are just some of the cats that are being taken care of daily by SAVES volunteers.  They have already been altered and were returned to their colony where they are given food, water & shelter in inclement weather.     We need & welcome donations to help these and other cats that unfortunately do not have the luxury of a real home.  The colonies are their homes.  Please visit our “contact us” page to donate.   We thank you and our furry friends do too! IMG_1339
