Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, Blaze!
Blaze is a nine-to-ten year-old Male Pit Mix who has been a longtime resident of the Animal Shelter. He was rescued by Animal Control Officers after he was found abandoned and left in a cage in Blydenburgh Park. He is a big food lover who also enjoys splashing in the pool and playing with toys. Blaze can be very protective of people he bonds with, and his trust can be gained with time and lots of treats. Once he trusts you, he’ll love you forever. Blaze would do best in an adult-only home without any other pets. Any interested owners must have experience with his breed.
If you are interested in meeting Blaze, please fill out an application to schedule time 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).
While we are open to the public, we ask that you call ahead to schedule an appointment.
