Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, the sweet Candyland!
Candyland is a beautiful six month-old Female Domestic Medium Hair who was brought to the Animal Shelter as part of the Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program. Candyland and her litter are all named after board games! The rest of the litter has since been adopted, and now it's time for Candy to find a purrfect home of her own.
Candy is very playful and affectionate, and she enjoys being petted. She is a big fan of getting some attention, and she rewards kindness with purring and love. Candy can see movement and shadows in good lighting, but is very limited in poor lighting. This makes her untrusting of other animals and young children because they move erratically or sneak up on her. Candy would love a quiet, adult-only home where she can either live with pets that will not bother her or be the only pet in the home. She will need people who will be patient with her and time to adjust to a new home.
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.
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).
