Meet handsome Odin, who came to us by way of Good Samaritans a few weeks back. Odin was found wandering St. Johnland Nursing Center by two Guide Dog Foundation Volunteers. He was emaciated and struggling from heat exposure when he found a van with an open door, dog treats and air conditioning. The two volunteers drove him to the Smithtown Animal Shelter and gave him the name Odin… because he’s clearly a king!
In only a week, Odin gained seven pounds. The Vet expects him to return to a healthy weight and deemed him healthy otherwise. Odin is between 6-8 years old, walks nicely on a leash and responds to commands well. Odin would be best suited in a home, familiar with big breed dogs, kids over 12, and no cats.
If you are interested in meeting Odin, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with him in a domestic setting, which includes our Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs and our Dog Walk trail. Family Pet Meet and Greets and at home interactions are also welcome and an integral part of the adoption process.
Thinking About Adoption:
The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s 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 Shelter 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 new addition does with other family members, pets, or the household itself.
Walk-In Hours at Smithtown Animal Shelter are currently Monday - Friday 8AM - 4:30 PM and Saturday 8AM - 3:30PM. (Sunday’s: by appointment only). To Inquire about the Pet of the Week or to meet your potential soulmate, please call the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center at 631-360-7575.
