Smithtown Pet of the Week

Tyson

Terrific Tyson

Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, fun-loving Tyson.

Tyson is a three year-old male Labrador mix. Sadly, his dad, a 9/11 first responder and hero, has fallen too ill to properly care for this sweet boy. We’re hoping to do right by both of them, in finding a hero family who will shower Tyson with unconditional love. This very sweet and energetic pup knows his basic commands, adores to play fetch and run around outside!  He is an outgoing and social dog who begs for the attention of every new person he meets. Tyson would thrive as the only pet in the home, without small children. 

If you are interested in meeting Tyson, please fill out an adoption application online and 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.

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.

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. 

Spay/Neuter Clinic:

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation will hold a Low Cost Spay/Neuter Mobile Clinic at the Smithtown Animal Shelter on September 23, October 7, and October 21, November 4, November 18, and December 2. To book appointments, please call (631)-566-8870.

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.)

To inquire about the Pet of the Week or to meet your potential soulmate, please call the Smithtown Animal Shelter at 631-360-7575.
