Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, Jitterbug!
Jitterbug is a Female American Staffordshire Terrier Mix who is estimated to be around two or three years-old. Jitterbug was initially adopted from Florida, but she was sadly surrendered to the Animal Shelter. Due to her outgoing and friendly nature, she has a tendency to escape and look for new friends. Jitterbug is a social butterfly who enjoys meeting new people. She has so much love to give, and is full of energy too! Jitterbug can be in a home with older children, and would do well with a family that can help her with her manners. She is an absolute delight, and we know she’ll find her perfect home soon.
If you are interested in meeting Jitterbug, please fill out an application to schedule time to properly interact with her 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.
