[ARCHIVED] A Pizza Pie With a Purpose

Pizza with a Purpose

Local Pizzerias Lend a Helping Hand to Encourage Pet Adoption

Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, local pizzerias have teamed up with the Town of Smithtown in a collaborative effort to help find loving homes for rescue dogs and cats at the Smithtown Animal Shelter. Each Pizzeria has taped Adoption Flyers to pizza boxes which are distributed to customers throughout the Township. Each flyer includes important information about the animal seeking a loving home, including age, gender and the needs of each adoptee. 

“The truth is that it’s an ideal time to consider adopting a loving animal in need of a second chance. So we started making calls to local establishments currently operating as essential businesses. The response was overwhelmingly positive, as many of these establishments have stepped up to help the community from the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.” - Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo

The main objective of the Pizza Box Adoption campaign is to attract new eyes to the longest shelter residents, often passed up because of age, size or breed misconception. Every adoptee featured on these flyers is truly deserving of a second chance.

The following local businesses have participated in the adoption campaign:

  • Buona Sera in Smithtown

  • Monte’s in Smithtown

  • Three Bambino’s in Smithtown

  • Mannino’s in Smithtown

  • Ciro’s Pizza in Smithtown

  • Alpine Bakery in Smithtown

  • Branchinelli’s in Hauppauge

  • Mama Sbarro’s in Hauppauge

  • Gino’s in Kings Park

  • Legend’s in Kings Park

  • Ciro’s in Kings Park

  • Pizzaiola in Commack

During the COVID-19 pandemic, public access is restricted to confirmed adoption appointments and wildlife/domestic animal rescue only. The hours at the Smithtown Animal Shelter are currently Monday - Saturday from 10AM - 3PM. Sundays and Wednesday evenings by appointment only.

About the COVID-19 Response:

From the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Town of Smithtown has orchestrated a unique central communications matrix, consisting of local food banks, shelters, school districts, charitable organizations & non-profits, first responders, local chambers, volunteers, local church/religious groups, food establishments and everyone in between. The objective was to ensure no one was forgotten during the COVID-19 pandemic. Together with the help of many organizations and individuals, The Town of Smithtown has helped to facilitate various supply donations, meal delivery, PPE appropriation and even fabric allotments which went to deliver hand sewn face masks.
