Smithtown Pets of the Week

LOKI - A MIRACLE STORY

Smithtown NY: The Smithtown Animal and Adoption Center is please to announce LOKI is this week’s “Pet of the Week” in a special Foster to Adopt case. After months of around the clock care and TLC, we are thrilled to announce that Loki is back to his usual playful self. This 5 ½ year old, Male/Neutered Lab/Shepherd mix is the world’s most perfect family dog. He will gladly sit and roll over around kids with open bags of snacks in anticipation of a belly rub instead of treats. He loves playing with stuffed animals, burying his favorite toys and wants nothing more than to wake up next to his soulmate for the rest of time.

Loki came back to the shelter a few months ago. This usually very lovable and playful boy was not himself. The resident Vet ran a number of tests and bloodwork and quickly diagnosed Loki with Aspergillosis, a very deadly infection in his nasal canal. Thanks to a quick diagnosis, Loki received the surgical procedure that is 85% curative on the first treatment. He was nursed back to health and hand fed by the Kennel Attendants and has begun to put on the weight he lost before he was returned. Loki’s will to survive tells us that he is meant for greatness. We’re looking to place him in a home where he can truly thrive and be loved by a family all his own.

Loki has a few more check-ups but is on the path to a full recovery. He is fully vaccinated and microchipped. A Foster to Adopt situation, means that the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center will work closely with the family that takes Loki in, to ensure he is doing well in his new environment. They will take him to his doctor visits and assist with any medications until Loki has made a full recovery.

If you are interested in meeting Loki or any of the wonderful rescue dogs at the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center, please call ahead to book 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.

 

KITTENS: Currently there are a variety of male and female kittens available to adopt or foster, from redheads to cobalt blue, calico and tortoiseshell domestic short-hair and long… If you are looking for a fun loving, yarn tossing ball of love, stop in at the Smithtown Animal Shelter today and find your PURR-fect soulmate or two! All kittens (and cats) are current on vaccines and have received a full workup (blood work, Feline HIV & Leukemia tested, physical exam ect) by a board certified Veterinarian. In addition to these two playful brothers, the Animal Shelter has a variety of kittens available for adoption (or to foster) in addition to older, wiser and loving cats.

 

Thinking About Adoption: The Smithtown Animal & Adoption Centers primary concern is finding the perfect home for each animal that finds his/her way to us. The Animal Control Officers at the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center will go out of their way to ensure both the rescued and rescuer are made for one another. If you have other pets, you can arrange to bring your four-legged family member into the shelter or we can set up an at home meet & greet to see how your prospective family member does with other family members, pets or the household itself.
