Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pets of the Week; Angel and Blaze.
Angel is a six year-old Female Blue Nose Pit. Angel was dealt a bad hand in life, like many of her breed. Her former owner would leave her outdoors, unattended for hours. After she was rescued, Angel quickly became attached to the amazing team at the Shelter. She is always eager to be around people and get some belly rubs. She loves long walks and is highly intelligent. She’s learned to master all Agility Course obstacles and loves a relaxing swim in the puppy pool. She would do best in a home with breed experienced owners. Angel should be in a home where she is the sole pet in the house.
Blaze came to the Shelter after being dumped in a county park, locked in a cage. However, he has truly begun to learn to love and trust his humans. This energetic seven year-old Male Pit Terrier enjoys running around in our dog park, eating treats, and when it’s hot out, splashing around in the pool! He can be a very loyal dog once he learns to trust you. Blaze knows his basic commands like sit, wait, give paw, and walks nicely on a leash. Blaze needs an adult only home familiar with big breed dogs, without other pets. His ideal family will spend time giving him the love (and treats) that he deserves, understanding that he had a tough life before the Shelter.
If you are interested in meeting Angel or Blaze, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with them 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.
COVID-19: Foster Opportunity:
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our Animal Shelter has had to restrict public access, including our loyal volunteers. If you have no other pets or young children at home, and are looking for a way to serve your community in this time of crisis, please consider signing up to be a foster. Foster parents provide temporary care for cats, kittens, dogs and puppies in their own homes. Some animals need as little as two weeks of care, while others may need care for extended periods of time.

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation will hold a Low Cost Spay/Neuter Mobile Clinic at the Smithtown Animal Shelter on 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.
