Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pets of the Week, Chewy and Mando!
Chewy (orange) and Mando (grey) are a pair of one and a half year-old Domestic Short Hair cats who are named after two classic Star Wars characters; Chewbacca and the Mandalorian! They lost their home after their previous owners had to move. Mando can be a little shy at first and takes some time to open up, while Chewy loves everyone and is a big attention seeker. Both of these guys have shown how outgoing and affectionate they can be. Chewy has a very mild heart murmur that needs monitoring with yearly vet visits, but otherwise, they are both very healthy. Chewy and Mando would do well in a family with other cats or children, but they should be kept away from dogs. While we would love for them to go to the same home, they can be separated if need be.
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.
If you have no other pets or young children at home, and are looking for a way to serve your community, 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).
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are open to the public, however, we continue to practice social distancing in our facility and indoor mask guidelines. To inquire about the Pet of the Week or to meet your potential soulmate, please call the Smithtown Animal Shelter at 631-360-7575.
