[ARCHIVED] Smithtown Pet of the Week

Yoo-Hoo

Yoo-Hoo

Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, the super sweet Yoo-Hoo!


Yoo-Hoo is an adorable ten to twelve year-old Female Domestic Medium Hair Torti. She was abandoned as part of a feral cat colony, and almost certainly would not have survived if she didn’t receive treatment. She needs a home that will cherish her, and she will reward you with affection day in and day out. Her gorgeous green eyes and outgoing personality will make anyone fall in love with her. Yoo-Hoo has an overactive thyroid, which is common in cats, so she will need a home that can provide her with her prescription diet and take her to the vet twice a year to help control her thyroid levels. She gets along well with older children and other low-key pets who respect her space. Yoo-Hoo would fit in well with any family!


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.


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 March 31, April 14, and April 28. 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.
