Smithtown Pet Of The Week -Momoa

Momoa, The Man with the Luscious Locks

SMITHTOWN, NY: The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week is Momoa, a 2-year old male! He originally came to our shelter as a stray on April 12th of this year. He was adopted quickly due to his beautiful coat and sweet temperament. But he was brought back when he couldn’t get along with the owner’s dog. He would be best as the only pet in the household, since he loves all the attention

He’s fantastic for a family that has older children. He’s unique looking and mushy and comical.

Currently, there are a variety of male and female cats & kittens available to adopt or foster. If you are looking for a fun loving, yarn tossing ball of love, stop by the Kitten Nursery or the Cat Condos at the Smithtown Animal Shelter and find a PURR-fect soulmate or two!

All of the felines at the Shelter are current on vaccines and have received a full workup (blood work, Feline HIV & Leukemia tested, physical exam etc) by a board certified Veterinarian.

Thinking About Adoption:

The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s primary concern is finding the perfect home for each animal that finds his/her way to us. The Animal Control Officers and Kennel Attendants at the Smithtown Animal Shelter will go out of their way to ensure both the rescued and rescuer are made for one another. 

Residents who have other pets can arrange to bring your four-legged family member to the shelter or set up an at home meet & greet to see how your prospective family member does with other family, pets and the household itself. Please allow yourself an hour minimum to meet with your potential new family member.

Smithtown Animal Shelter Pet Of The Week Cookie

Smithtown NY: The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week is a fun-loving, adorable goof named Cookie. This sweet an eight-year old female Terrier mix is as friendly as they come. She’s the perfect family pet, waiting to greet you with love and a happy smile each time you walk through the door. 

Cookie came to the Smithtown Animal Shelter after her owner could no longer care for her. She has since been spayed, microchipped, and is fully up to date with all of her vaccinations. 

Cookie grew up in a home with another dog (male) as a companion, so she would be good in a home that has other dogs. She would also make an excellent addition to any family that wants to welcome a loyal friend into their home to love and play with.   

If you are interested in meeting Cookie, please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with her in a domestic setting, which includes our Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs and our Dog Walk trail. Family Pet Meet and Greets and at home interactions are also welcome and an integral part of the adoption process.

DEC - Park Without A Permit You Get A Ticket Fishing Out Of Season You Get Another

Missing Parking Permit Leads to Fishing Ticket - Suffolk County
On June 16, ECO Emma Carpenter was patrolling Caumsett State Park in Lloyd Harbor when she observed a truck without a permit parked in the lot. No one was in sight on the beach below the parking lot, so ECO Carpenter hiked about a mile down the beach before she located a group of people fishing. She quickly determined that the truck belonged to the group. While explaining to the owner of the truck that he cannot park in this lot without a permit, she also looked at the fish in their bucket. Underneath legal porgies she found a blackfish, also known as tautog. The truck owner admitted to catching the fish, for which the season was closed. The subject was issued tickets for parking without a permit and possessing tautog out of season.

DEC - Raccoons Aren't Pets - Suffolk County

Raccoons Aren’t Pets - Suffolk County
On June 13, ECOs Nicholas Nicholas and Kyle Bevis received a report that a family in Bay Shore was keeping two raccoons as pets. The ECOs arrived at the home and found two juvenile raccoons in the basement. After interviewing one of the family members, the ECOs learned that the two raccoons, named Rack and Uni, were being fed milk from a bottle and had been trained to use a litter box. Because it is illegal to possess wildlife as a pet in New York State, the racoons were seized and brought to a local wildlife rehabilitator to be released back into the wild. In addition, two tickets were issued for unlawful possession of wildlife and possession of wildlife as a pet.

Pet Of The Week -Ryker

Ryker can be a little cautious at first introduction. Once he gets to know you, he will follow you around and spoil you with unconditional affection.
Ryker was picked up by our Animal Control Officers as a stray wandering along Townline Road in Kings Park. He has since been neutered,​ microchipped & fully vaccinated.

Ryker would do best in a home without other pets as he is definitely a dominant type personality. He is very intelligent and can be trained to do most anything, as his breed thrives on mental stimulation. He does have some Chihuahua in him, which explains his loyalty and eagerness to find his special person.

If you are interested in meeting Ryker please call ahead to schedule an hour to properly interact with him in a domestic setting, which includes our Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs and our Dog Walk trail. Family Pet Meet and Greets and at home interactions are also welcome and an integral part of the adoption process.
