Tags Posts tagged with "Ophelia"




Lilly is a Female Domestic Shorthair at the Smithtown Animal Shelter who is estimated to be around five years-old. Lilly and her housemate were brought to the Animal Shelter after a child in her old home discovered they had an allergy to cats. She is very sweet and affectionate with people, and an absolutely lovely friend to everyone she meets. She has experience living with two other cats and with an older child. Lilly can get along well with some cats, but may assert her dominance over others, and would prefer a home without any dogs.



Ophelia is a gorgeous one year-old Female Border Collie Mix who was found during a storm. Ophelia is a sweet and kind girl with a gentle heart. She clearly has had no prior socialization, and this has led to her being very frightened and shy of new people. Despite this, Ophelia desperately craves love and affection from anyone who’s willing to give it. She needs a home that can help her work on her confidence and let her live the active life her breed requires. Ophelia would do well in a home with older children, and will likely get along with other pets.

If you are interested in meeting Lilly or Ophelia,  please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with them in a domestic setting.

The Smithtown Animal and Adoption Shelter is located at 410 Middle Country Road, Smithtown. Visitor hours are currently Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Sundays and Wednesday evenings by appointment only). For more information, call 631-360-7575 or visit www.townofsmithtownanimalshelter.com.



Welcome to the fifth edition of Paw Prints, a monthly column for animal lovers dedicated to helping shelter pets find their furever home!




Meet Keesha

This adorable and sweet girl is Keesha. She was surrendered to the Brookhaven Animal Shelter because her family was no longer able to care for her. Keesha is a gentle soul who has to start over at the age of 10. She is as sweet as could be, she knows sit but is always checking out her surroundings to see who is available to get some pets from. She is looking for a family to love, a door to look out of and get her daily dose of sunshine and a bed to curl up in. She is a delight to walk, she is housebroken and would love the opportunity to show you what she is made of. She can be a little shy at first but then the happy go lucky girl comes out and she is giving kisses and looking for all of your attention. She would do best with kids over the age of 10, no dogs and she is fine with cats. Call 631-286-4940.

Meet Ophelia

“Hi, I’m Ofie from Kent Animal Shelter. It’s going to take a little while for you and me to become best friends and trust each other. But, I promise you that when we do, you will be showered with more love, affection and loyalty than you can imagine. There is nothing more that I love than hugs, kisses and belly rubs
just ask the kind people who work here at the shelter. But sometimes, new people make me nervous, and I get a little scared and I feel I need to protect myself because I am not sure yet who you are. You see, I came to America from the streets and meat markets of Thailand., and some people there were going to do really bad things to me. That’s why it may take a little while for you and me to become best friends
.but I promise it can happen if you give me a chance. Thank you for reading a little about me. I hope to see you soon. Oh and I love treats! Love, Ofie.” Ophelia needs to be the only pet in the house. Call 631-727-5731, ext. 1.
