[ARCHIVED] RYKER | Smithtown Pets of the Week


Meet this pint sized ball of fun, now available for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter.

Introducing the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week; Ryker. This two-year old, Papillon Mix loves his humans. Ryker is an extremely cute pint size pup, weighing only 13 pounds. We dare anyone to resist his big beautiful eyes and feathered coat. 

Ryker can be a little cautious at first introduction. Once he gets to know you, he will follow you around and spoil you with unconditional affection.

Ryker was picked up by our Animal Control Officers as a stray wandering along Townline Road in Kings Park. He has since been neutered, microchipped & fully vaccinated. 

Ryker would do best in a home without other pets as he is definitely a dominant type personality.  He is very intelligent and can be trained to do most anything, as his breed thrives on mental stimulation. He does have some Chihuahua in him, which explains his loyalty and eagerness to find his special person.  

If you are interested in meeting Ryker 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. Family Pet Meet and Greets and at home interactions are also welcome and an integral part of the adoption process. 

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 at the Smithtown Animal Shelter will go out of their way to ensure both the rescued and rescuer are made for one another. If you have other pets, you can arrange to bring your four-legged family member into the shelter or we can set up an at home meet & greet to see how your prospective new addition does with other family members, pets or the household itself. 

Hours at Smithtown Animal Shelter are currently Monday - Friday 8AM - 4:30 PM and Saturday 8AM - 3:30PM. (Sunday’s: by appointment only). To Inquire about the pet of the week or to meet your potential soulmate, please call the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center at 631-360-7575.
