Smithtown's Animal Shelter Pet Of The Week - Meet Polly
Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 4:41PM

Smithtown NY: The Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week is Polly, a Female 2 year old Domestic Short Hair Polydactyl cat, more fondly referred to as a “Hemingway” cat. Polly was brought to the shelter as part of our Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) program, along with her infant kittens. Polly nursed her four babies until they were grown and ready to be adopted. All of her kittens have since been adopted. Polly is looking for a family to love her like she loved those kittens. 

Polly the Perfect PolydactylShe can be a little shy at first but once Polly gets to know you, she will try and seek out your attention. This sweet poly-toed girl gets along well with other cats and all humans. She’s healthy, house-trained, and up to date on all vaccines. 

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.
