Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pets of the Week, a dynamic duo named Popcorn and Pretzel!
Popcorn is a Female ten month-old orange Domestic Short Hair, while Pretzel is a Male ten month-old gray and white Domestic Short Hair. These two are great friends who would like to be adopted together. They were found as part of a cat hoarding situation, where they grew up having very little human interaction. Fortunately, after a few months in the care of the Animal Shelter, they’ve started to come out of their shells. Popcorn is the more outgoing of the two, but Pretzel still has a lot of love to give and is always sticking by Popcorn’s side! Their purrfect home would be a quiet, adult-only space that is dog free. Popcorn and Pretzel are used to living with other cats, so they would get along well in a home with potential kitty siblings.
Currently, there are a variety of male and female cats & kittens available to adopt or foster. If you are looking for a fun loving, yarn tossing ball of love, stop by the Kitten Nursery or the Cat Condos at the Smithtown Animal Shelter and find a PURR-fect soulmate or two!
All of the felines at the Shelter are current on vaccines and have received a full workup (blood work, Feline HIV & Leukemia tested, physical exam etc.) by a board certified Veterinarian.
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)
