The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week is Butterscotch, an eleven year old Female Domestic Shorthair. Butterscotch was brought to the shelter after her old owner sadly passed away. With no extended family to take care of her, Butterscotch was surrendered to the shelter.
Butterscotch is a very affectionate and friendly cat! She loves to snuggle up next to new friends for lots of affection. She is waiting to find someone to share her warm heart with. Just like her name, Butterscotch is very sweet!
November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month… the town would like to remind all potential adopters not to overlook a senior pet. Senior pets often require less monitoring and training, and they can be even more loyal than young animals.
Currently, there are a variety of male and female cats & kittens available to adopt or foster. If you are looking for a fun loving, yarn tossing ball of love, stop by the Kitten Nursery or the Cat Condos at the Smithtown Animal Shelter and find a PURR-fect soulmate or two!
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.
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.
Walk-In 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.
