Smithtown Pet Of The Week

Meet the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week, Toby!

Toby is a handsome twelve year-old Male Chihuahua Mix who has had a difficult life. He has been bounced from home to home over the past few years, and is looking for a furrever home that will give him some stability. Toby is a total sweetheart who loves to be outside and go for walks. He is gentle and happy to be around people whenever he can. Toby gets along with just about everyone, but he will do best with other gentle pets and with older children who won’t pounce on him.

If you are interested in meeting Toby, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with him in a domestic setting, which includes their Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs, and their Dog Walk trail.

Additional Foster Opportunity:

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).

While they are open to the public, they ask that you call ahead to schedule an appointment.

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