Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, King James!
King James is a handsome rooster who was found wandering as a stray and never claimed. He is a big boy who loves his treats! He will follow you around and cluck to get your attention. James is social around other animals and has a curious and independent spirit. He has no problems being open and vocal when he feels happy. James can fly decently well for a chicken and will need an enclosed coop so he does not get loose. We know there’s a perfect family for him out there somewhere.
The Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter is not equipped to safely house animals other than dogs & cats long term. However, if an animal is in danger and needs housing temporarily until another rescue has room, we will do our best to provide safe shelter while we can. While the animal waits for space to open in another rescue, it will be available for adoption through our Adoption Center.
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).
While we are open to the public, we ask that you call ahead to schedule an appointment.
