Last of Sandy shelter's strays is up for adoption

NEW YORK (AP) — Nearly 300 stray and displaced pets hunkered down at an emergency shelter set up in a Brooklyn warehouse by the ASPCA in the chaotic weeks after Superstorm Sandy.

Many were reunited with their owners while others were adopted. Now there's just one left: a little white kitten named Joy.

The ASPCA is hoping someone will come forward and offer her a home.

Joy was probably around six months old when she was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn's waterlogged Gravesend section just days after the storm.

The ASPCA put the cat up for adoption in May, but there haven't been any takers so far.

Anyone interested in adopting Joy should call the ASPCA Adoption Center at 212-876-7700 ext. 4900, or visit Joy's adoption page on the web (
