The Smithtown Animal and Adoption Center will release a “Pets of the Week”
Feature every Monday starting July 16th 2018. This new promotion was created with the objective of bringing the focus to the abandoned cats or dogs right here in Smithtown in need of loving homes. Each week the S.A.A.C. will highlight one cat and one dog in need of a loving home. An in detail description along with any pertinent health information will be provided on each potential family member.
“In addition to promoting adoptions, this feature was inspired by what our ACO’s (Animal Control Officers) call the Summer Slump, when families take vacations or gear up for Summer Camp, putting off the idea of bringing a new pet home. This is actually the best time of year to adopt. Having some extra time at home to devote to a loving cat or dog is both a life lesson to teach children as well as a memorable family time to cherish for years to come.” - Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo, Liaison to the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center
This week’s Cat of the Week are a pair of pint size kittens named “Timon & Pumbaa”. These two brothers were discovered by a good samaritan who happens to have two tabby cats named Nala & Simba, hence the Lion King theme. Both kittens are completely healthy and will be neutered before they can be adopted. All kittens (and cats) are current on vaccines and have received a full workup (blood work, Feline HIV & Leukemia tested, physical exam ect) by a board certified Veterinarian. In addition to these two playful brothers, the Animal Shelter has a variety of kittens available for adoption (or to foster) in addition to older, wiser and loving cats.
This week’s Dog of the Week is Desi, a gorgeous female, medium sized Labrador mix. She’s approximately 7 years young, although she is as fun-loving as a puppy. Desi is housebroken, trained to obey basic commands and loves watching TV on your lap, strolling beside you and will do anything for a treat. Desi is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and the portrait of health. She will make a family of five or one totally complete. If you are interested in meeting Desi or one of the wonderful rescue dogs at the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center, please call ahead to book an hour to properly interact with her in a domestic setting, which includes our Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs and our Dog Walk trail.
The Smithtown Animal & Adoption Centers primary concern is finding the perfect home for each animal that finds his/her way to us. The Animal Control Officers at the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center will go out of their way to ensure both the rescued and rescuer are made for one another. If you have other pets, you can arrange to bring your four-legged family member into the shelter or we can set up an at home meet & greet to see how your prospective family member does with other family members, pets or the household itself.
Summer hours at Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center are currently:
