Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, Sugar.
Sugar is a three to four year-old Female Miniature Pinscher and Boston Terrier Mix who had a very rough start to her life. Sugar came from a breeding situation where she was used, neglected, and discarded. She arrived at the Animal Shelter in a malnourished and dehydrated state. As a result of this experience, Sugar is a bit fearful of men, but can learn to accept them with treats and time. Despite all the pain she’s been through, Sugar is still energetic, playful, and loving. Her ideal home will be without other dogs or young children under 15. Sugar deserves nothing but the ultimate happily ever after and a home that will give her faith in people again. We’re ready for her story to be rewritten, and we know the perfect owner is out there for her somewhere.
If you are interested in meeting Sugar, 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.
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.
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.)
