Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, Cookie.
Of all the dogs in all the shelters, there is no other who is more deserving of a loving family. Cookie is a loving and happy 9 years young pittie mix. This little girl adores every human she meets, can play for hours and gives the BEST snuggles. She would be ideal for families with kids 8 years and up, and should be the only pet in the home. Cookie is very healthy and athletic. She needs a big yard where she can play fetch with her family.
Sweet Cookie has been at the shelter for over a year and for the life of us, we can't understand why she is overlooked time and time again. Do not be fooled by her age, Cookie has a young heart, mind and body. She lives to please everyone she meets, collecting hugs and ear rubs by the hundreds.
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.
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.
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.)
