Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pets of the Week; Drone and Gabe, the bromance duo.
Drone and Gabe are the best pair of feline friends that anyone could have. When one of them is getting attention, the other cat will quickly follow to get in on the TLC. Drone is a Male Domestic Shorthair who is one-and-a-half years old, while Gabe is an eleven year-old Male Domestic Shorthair. Ideally, these two pals will be adopted together, but they can be separated if necessary.
Drone is a very active cat who loves to play with our volunteers and with other cats. When he meets strangers, he may be a little shy initially, but once he opens up, he is loving and friendly. Spending time with Gabe helps Drone come out of his shell. While he gets along with the other cats, he’s best suited in a home without dogs.
Gabe has the winning combo of the softest fur and the sweetest personality. Gabe will greet you with a nudge and a cuddle when he sees you. He loves to lounge around and be pet all dong long. Gabe’s past life outside the shelter caused him to have a leg injury, so he may move a little slow, and can’t jump very high, but this cat is still one heck of a guy and is in great health overall. He’s great with other cats and children.
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.
If you are interested in meeting Drone or Gabe, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with them in a domestic setting, which includes our Meet and Greet Room. Family Pet Meet and Greets and at home interactions are also welcome and an integral part of the adoption process.
The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation will hold a Low Cost Spay/Neuter Mobile Clinic at the Smithtown Animal Shelter on March 11th & 25th as well as April 8th & 22nd. To book appointments, please call (631)-566-8870.
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 Smithtown Animal Shelter are currently Monday - Friday 8AM - 4:30PM 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 Shelter at 631-360-7575.
