Locals can adopt homeless dogs and cats of all ages, breeds and colors cared for by the Smithtown Animal Shelter on East Main Street. Supervisor George Beatty and the shelter staff seek to reunite lost pets with their owners and find new homes for unclaimed pets.
Those interested in adopting can view available animals on the shelter’s website. Not only will adopting a pet save you money, but you'll also help save the life of the pet you adopt and free space at the shelter for another pet worthy of adoption.
The shelter also appreciates volunteers and donations. Their animals can always use warm beds, blankets, toys and treats as well as new or gently used bowls, carriers, collars, crates and sealed storage containers. Canned and dry pet food is also needed for dogs and cats of all ages.
Additionally, the shelter dispatches officers to respond to residents’ complaints regarding injured, stray or vicious domestic or wild animals.
The shelter is opened Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
