Smithtown Shelter Pets Of The Week: Pierce, Raggedy Anne & Andy
Monday, August 19, 2019 at 8:56PM

Smithtown NY: The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pets of the Week are Pierce, a healthy, five year-old Pitbull Mix and Raggedy Anne and Andy, a bonded pair of kittens. 

Pierce is the new guy at the shelter, and hopefully his stay won’t be very long. This sweet boy began his journey down south, and was rescued by a shelter in New Jersey where he was adopted by a loving family. Pierce lived with another dog and young children, until unforeseen events in living accommodations resulted in his surrender to the Animal Shelter. 

Pierce is the perfect family dog, as he is very good with kids and other dogs. He’s friendly, outgoing, very obedient, and knows many commands. He’s met a lot of people his first week at the shelter, welcoming every perfect stranger with kisses and paw.

If you are interested in meeting Pierce, 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. 

Bonded Siblings

The Smithtown Animal Shelter hopes to put the spotlight on Raggedy Anne and Andy, an adorable pair of kittens we hope to adopt together. These 13 week-old Domestic Long Hair siblings stand out with their beautiful white fur. They are extremely attached; one doesn’t move without the other. To give them the best life, we hope they can be adopted together. Both kittens are extremely affectionate and loving. They’ve lived in a foster home with dogs. 

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 at the Smithtown Animal Shelter 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 new addition does with other family members, pets, or the household itself. 

Walk-In Hours at Smithtown Animal Shelter are currently Monday - Friday 8AM - 4:30 PM and Saturday 8AM - 3:30PM. (Sunday’s: by appointment only). To Inquire about the Pet of the Week or to meet your potential soulmate, please call the Smithtown Animal & Adoption Center at 631-360-7575.
