Smithtown's Animal Shelter Is Getting A Dog Park!

 A message from Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo:

With Gratitude, today we met with Harlan Fischer, CEO of Branch Financial Services, Inc. in Smithtown, NY,  who will be donating towards the fence to secure the future dog park. We also want to thank Victoria Feuerstein and Debi Maier for all their hard work and effort to get this to fruition! 

Our Parks & Highway Department will begin in a few weeks (to be announced) and we cannot be more excited to give our dogs a place to run and play with their volunteer walkers! The incredible team work between Elected Officials, Department Heads, Shelter Employees & Residents has made this a unique project.
