Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, Samson!
Samson is an eight year-old Male Boxer/Pit Mix who was abandoned at the Kings Park Psychiatric Center with his sister Delilah after their old owner passed away. He adores people, and is very friendly and gentle. Samson is a super sweet guy who has so much love to give, and we know the perfect home is out there for him somewhere. Samson gets along well with older children and some other dogs. While we would love for Samson and Delilah to be adopted together, they can be separated if they find the right homes.
If you are interested in meeting Samson, 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.
Additional Foster Opportunity:
If you have no other pets or young children at home, and are looking for a way to serve your community, 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).
The Smithtown Animal Shelter must continue to practice social distancing, safety guidance and indoor mask guidelines to best protect the animals and staff. While we are open to the public, we ask that you call ahead to schedule an appointment.
