Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, the sweetie Betty Boop.
Betty Boop is an eight year-old Female Pit Bull Terrier Mix. Named after the iconic cartoon diva (who was originally designed as a dog), Miss Boop can’t get enough of people, and we can’t get enough of her! She was brought in to the Animal Shelter by a Good Samaritan who found her looking lost at a nearby train station. We discovered quickly how attached she gets to everyone when she cried watching the Good Samaritan leave. She doesn’t like to see any of her new friends go!
Betty Boop is the perfect combination of calm, affectionate, and sweet all rolled into a 70 pound ball of love. Her eyes say it all, she oozes love and adoration for every new person she meets. While she’s great with children, she would prefer to be the only pet in her home.
If you are interested in meeting Betty Boop, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with her 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, and dogs 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 May 6th and May 20th. 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 the Smithtown Animal Shelter are currently Monday - Saturday 10AM - 3PM. (Sundays and Wednesday evenings: by appointment only).
During the COVID-19 pandemic, public access is restricted to confirmed adoption appointments and wildlife/domestic animal rescue only.)
