[ARCHIVED] Smithtown Pet of the Week

Cookie

The Sweetest: Cookie

Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, a loving eight year-old Female Terrier Mix named Cookie. 

Cookie came to the Animal Shelter after her previous owner sadly passed away. She was well cared for, trained, and learned how to love unconditionally from a very young age. Unfortunately, Cookie is often overlooked by adopters because of her age, despite having half of her happy and healthy years ahead of her. She loves to run around the dog park and play with Animal Shelter staff and volunteers. With a puppy-like energy and fantastic manners, she’s a great fit for families with kids, other calm dogs, or the empty nester looking for a companion. This dog is the most perfect, most affectionate best friend a family can wish for!

There is nothing that Cookie or the team at the Smithtown Animal Shelter would love more than to find her a new family to give wet and sloppy kisses to every time they walk through the door. 

If you are interested in meeting Cookie, please call ahead to schedule 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. Family Pet Meet and Greets and at home interactions are also welcome and an integral part of the adoption process.

COVID-19: Foster Opportunity:

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our Animal Shelter has had to restrict public access, including our loyal volunteers. If you have no other pets or young children at home, and are looking for a way to serve your community in this time of crisis, please consider signing up to be a foster. Foster parents provide temporary care for cats, kittens, and dogs in their own homes. Some animals need as little as two weeks of care, while others may need care for extended periods of time.

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 and Kennel Attendants at the Smithtown Animal Shelter will go out of their way to ensure both the rescued and rescuer are made for one another. Residents who have other pets can arrange to bring your four-legged family member to the shelter or set up an at home meet & greet to see how your prospective family member does with other family, pets and the household itself. Please allow yourself an hour minimum to meet with your potential new family member. 

Spay/Neuter Clinic:

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation will hold a Low Cost Spay/Neuter Mobile Clinic at the Smithtown Animal Shelter on August 26, September 9, September 23, October 7, and October 21. To book appointments, please call (631)-566-8870.

Hours at the Smithtown Animal Shelter are currently Monday - Saturday 10AM - 3PM. (Sundays and Wednesday evenings: by appointment only). 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, public access is restricted to confirmed adoption appointments and wildlife/domestic animal rescue only.)

To inquire about the Pet of the Week or to meet your potential soulmate, please call the Smithtown Animal Shelter at 631-360-7575.
