Smithtown Pet of the Week

Huck is a purebred two-and-a-half year-old Male German Shepherd who loves to play and to learn! Huck is extremely loyal and a highly intelligent working dog. Huck is great at learning new tricks and commands. He’s naturally attentive to his humans, and his affectionate demeanor makes him irresistible at first paw. Huck can be protective of his home and his humans, but this loyalty can make him easy to train. Huck’s perfect home will have experience with the German Shepherd breed, and will understand the importance of giving him the mental stimulation and exercise he needs to live a happy and active life.

If you are interested in meeting Huck, please 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 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.)
