The Smithtown Animal Shelter provides care for lost, stray, and surrendered animals for the residents of Smithtown. Our goal is to reunite lost animals with their owners and find new homes for the unclaimed and relinquished pets. We also enforce the animal control laws of the township and of the New York State Department of Agriculture. The Animal Control Officers respond to residents' complaints regarding stray, vicious, injured, barking, or owned loose dogs and other domestic or wild animals. The Animal Shelter is open Monday- Friday 8a.m. to 5p.m. and Saturday from 8am to 4pm. We are closed on Sunday and holidays.
Did you know Old Yeller was adopted for $3 at a shelter and his real name was Spike? Most people feel that the best pets are those that come from a shelter. Older animals make the perfect lifelong friends too. A friendly, silly looking mutt could be sitting in a shelter waiting for you to rescue him! To help control the animal population, all pets must be spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
Donations would be greatly appreciated. The animals can always use a warm blanket/bed or a few extra treats and toys. Old crates, cat carriers, bowls, sealed storage containers and collars that are still in good condition could also be put to use. Since we have pets of all ages, puppy, kitten, dog, cat, and senior dog food is needed. Above all, canned dog and cat food is needed for our increasing amount of animals.
The Smithtown Animal Shelter is exactly one mile East of the intersection of Route 111 and East Main Street.
