The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week is the wonderfully pleasant Patrick, a one year old Male Pit Bull Terrier Mix. He was found tied to a tree in a nearby park and brought to our shelter by a Good Samaritan. This goofy, high energy guy loves toys, attention, and running around our outside play area. He already knows some commands like Sit, Wait, Paw, and Speak.
Patrick has only been in the shelter for a short time, but he’s already made a big impression on staff and volunteers because of his affectionate and playful demeanor. Patrick previously lived in a home with cats and he’s excellent with kids. He would be a great addition to most homes.
If you are interested in meeting Patrick, 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.
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.
