LI's Adorable Adoptables is a weekly column by Allison Matos, a lifelong Long Island resident who has been advocating animal adoption since 2012. Allison's weekly posts highlight local animals in need of adoption, and cover general animal welfare topics as well.

All rise for King Walker, the amazing Treeing Walker Coonhound waiting to meet his forever royal family.  While you can’t tell from this guy’s handsome picture, Walker was found as a stray in Kentucky weighing well under 40 pounds which is quite thin for such a leggy hound. Thanks to the kind folks at Last Hope Animal Rescue, Walker is now healthy and ready to be your new best friend. Walker adores people and other dogs too. He needs to be placed with kids that are teens or older.  Why not head down to Last Hope today and let Walker walk his way into your heart.  For more information, check out his webpage here.

So Beautiful! Minnie is a friendly sweet girl that was found abandoned outdoors searching for food and shelter as a young kitten. Now after being fully vetted and home fostered, this stunning beauty is ready to find her Forever home. Her birth date is estimated to be September 2014. Head over to Last Hope Animal Rescue today and be the one to give a happy ending to her story!  For more information, check out her webpage here.

These next three pooches are delightful, and all waiting patiently at Sweet Dog Rescue for their forever families.

Got your sights on the gorgeous 1 1/2 year old female lab mix?  Snowey was lucky enough to be pulled from a high kill shelter and treated for heartworm.  She is fine now and is a loving and playful girl.  Her beautiful white coat and her warm and soulful brown eyes make her a gorgeous girl with the makings of being your perfect best friend! For information on how to adopt Snowey, contact Sweetest Dog Rescue at

Oh Sam, you are one of the cutest 8 month old male boxer mixes that we’ve ever laid eyes on!  This little guy is only 38 lbs, and is just a love!  A little shy at first, but once he warms up, he's a sweetheart and a gentleman!  Sam’s size makes him a great candidate for being the perfect “pint” sized pet, so contact Sweetest Dog Rescue at to adopt him today.

For all the tiny dog lovers out there, Eugene is your man!  Eugene is a 10 year young, happy and playful Pekingese mix.   Eugene would be the happiest little guy if he could spend his life with a family that loves and cares for him. Word on the street is that he makes a great snuggle-buddy, so why not take him home today? For more information, contact Sweetest Dog Rescue at
