LICKS opened its doors in 2008 and in the ensuing years, has spayed or neutered more than 10,000 cats and kittens.
We were conceived by a passionate group of volunteers committed to making a difference in helping end the huge problem of pain and suffering endured by the untold number of unwanted kittens born each year. That commitment continues today.
We opened our doors to the public just by the train station in Island Park.
2014 saw us in our second location, right behind All About Cats on Sunrise Highway in Freeport.
In 2017, LICKS moved to the Long Beach Humane Society in Island Park, NY.
In 2020 a new board took over LICKS, and are continuing to fulfill the mission of ending suffering of unwanted feral and community cats forever.
We are proud of the affiliations we have created with all of our rescue group hosts, and wish them continued success in their fostering and adoption programs.
In addition, all cats are given:
Topical Flea Preventative
Ear Cleaning (for indoor cats only)
Nail Trimming (for indoor cats only)
Trapper's time and resources
Post-surgical after-care treatment
Cost of Food
All TNR is performed by volunteers at their own time and cost.
Please help us continue this valuable community service.
Please help us end the overpopulation and suffering of unwanted cats and kittens.
