Shelter Pet of the Week

MEET MAIZEE!

This week’s featured shelter pet is Maizee, a beautiful Husky/Jindo mix up for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter. 

Maizee is a two year-old Female Husky/Jindo Mix who was found as a stray and never claimed. She is a stunning ball of happy energy who enjoys meeting new people and going for runs. Maizee is looking for a family that can keep her active and shower her with love and affection. She needs to work on her leash manners, but is otherwise perfectly well behaved. Maizee would do well in a home with dogs who can match her energy. A potential home should be careful when introducing her to cats and small children, as her strength can be a little overwhelming for them. Stunning Maizee is a total delight, and we know her perfect home will find her soon enough.

If you are interested in meeting Maizee, please fill out an application to schedule time to properly interact with her in a domestic setting, which includes a Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs, and a Dog Walk trail.

This week’s featured shelter pet is Buddy, a 12-year-old tri-colored male Beagle mix up for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter.

Buddy is a sweet senior dog that deserves the BEST forever home to show him the love that he has been denied. This sweet boy was adopted and returned twice in his life. He is gentle, outgoing, loves all people and animals and is pretty low key.  He will bark for attention and love. He will follow you around and be under foot, that is, when he isn’t snuggled in a ball fast asleep.  He will need a home that can manage his chronic ear issues and his tendency to wander off. He is a delightful old man that just wants LOVE!

If you would like to meet Buddy, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with him in a domestic setting.

Jack

MEET JACK!

Jack

This week’s featured shelter pet is Jack, beautiful Pekingese mix currently up for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter. Approximately 2 years old, Jack arrived at the shelter on Oct. 24. 

Jack loves to sit in laps and get attention and is very endearing and  sweet. He is young, active and healthy but does have some quirks that a potential home will have to manage. When he likes someone, he adores them. However, until he likes them, he will growl, bark and bite at ankles. He prefers women and has some minor resource guarding that may be an issue with other dogs. He was found with a small female and they scuffled often, but did not cause injury to one another. He can also not be around children. 

If you would like to meet Jack, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with him in a domestic setting.

Huey, Dewey and Louie

MEET HUEY, DEWEY AND LOUIE!

This week’s featured shelter pets are Huey, Dewey and Louie, three male Pekin Ducks that were abandoned in a local park. They are now safe at the Smithtown Animal Shelter and are ready to be adopted.

Domestic fowl are not well suited to living in the wild and often are picked on by the local birds; these boys were no exception. They were huddled together on the shore, scared and confused. 

The shelter is not equipped to house any animals except cats and dogs. These boys deserve a pond or pool to hang out in and safe shelter from predators and extreme weather. They all love to eat and waddle around making adorable duck sounds. You cannot help but to be happy in their presence. Let’s help them find their perfect happily ever after!

The Smithtown Animal & Adoption Shelter is located at 410 Middle Country Road, Smithtown. Visitor hours are 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.

Miss Baker

This week’s featured shelter pet is Akneada Baker, an 8-year-old calico up for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter.

Akneada (pronounced Anita) Baker earned her name because she loves to sing and move her feet like she’s kneading. She was found as an emaciated and underweight stray with severe dental problems that had infected her sinuses and upper airway. She has since had an incredible recovery, and she’s now back to a healthy weight and is looking amazing.

Akneada is a little ball of happiness and constant motion. All she needs is a home that will love her and pet her all day long. Sweet Akneada Baker is ready to find her happily ever after, and we can’t wait for her to end up in that special home.  Will that be with you?

If you would like to meet Miss Baker, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with her in a domestic setting.

The Smithtown Animal & Adoption Shelter is located at 410 Middle Country Road, Smithtown. Visitor hours are 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.

Candyland

MEET CANDYLAND!

This week’s featured shelter pet is Candyland, currently up for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter. This sweet little lady is just 6 months old. Candy was trapped as part of the shelter’s TNR program with the rest of her litter (all named after boardgames). The others have all since gone on to be adopted, but poor Candy is still waiting for the purrfect home.  

This black beauty has some vision impairment; she can see movement and shadows in good lighting, but is very limited in poor lighting and with fine detail. This makes her very untrusting of other animals and young children because they move erratically or sneak up on her. 

She is very playful and affectionate and would love a quiet, adult only home where she can be the only pet or live with pets that will not bother with her. Candy has tons of love to give and she loves to get attention.

If you would like to meet Candyland, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with her in a domestic setting. The Smithtown Animal & Adoption Shelter is located at 410 Middle Country Road, Smithtown. Visitor hours are Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Sundays and Wednesday evenings by appointment only).

Lilly
Lilly

MEET LILLY!

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

MEET OPHELIA!

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).

Sweet Tea

MEET SWEET TEA!

Sweet Tea is a delightful one year-old Female Pit Mix who arrived at the Smithtown Animal Shelter after being found wandering around busy roads and trying to get into passing cars. Her time as a stray left her a little underweight, and there were some signs that she had a recent litter.

After initially being somewhat unsure of herself in her new surroundings, she has shown the shelter staff just how friendly and loving she can be! Sweet Tea is a small ball of energy and an absolute pleasure to be around. She enjoys meeting anyone who will give her some attention, and she responds positively to training. Sweet Tea would do well in a home with older children, and she’ll likely get along with most other dogs that can tolerate her social behavior.

If you are interested in meeting Sweet Tea, please fill out an application to schedule time to properly interact with her in a domestic setting, which includes a Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs, and a Dog Walk trail.

The Smithtown Animal & 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 more information, call 631-360-7575 or visit www.townofsmithtownanimalshelter.com.

 

MEET JITTERBUG!

This week’s featured shelter pet is Jitterbug, a white and tan female terrier mix currently up for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter. 

Approximately three years old, sweet Jitterbug is a Southern Belle who was adopted from Florida and then surrendered to the shelter on Sept. 16 due to a penchant for escape. 

Jitterbug is a social butterfly who loves to meet new people. This young lady is spirited and full of boundless energy. She needs help with some manners, but is otherwise a delightful young girl.

If you would like to meet Jitterbug, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with her in a domestic setting.

MEET BARBIE!

This week’s featured shelter pet is Barbie, a white and black rabbit currently up for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter. Barbie and her boyfriend Ken were abandoned at Sunken Meadow State Park in the beginning of August.

While the shelter is not set up to house rabbits long term, these two were in a dangerous situation and had to be taken in.  

Ken was adopted right away, but sweet Barbie took a little longer to warm up to shelter staff. Now it’s time for Barbie to find her own dream home. She is a sweet and loving little bun with a love for yogurt treats and Romaine lettuce. She is litter trained and needs a home with space for her to run.

Barbie would do best with older children as she can get quite fresh when she feels scared.

If you would like to meet Barbie, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with her in a domestic setting.
