Adopting From Our Shelter

Congratulations on your decision to adopt a pet! We're always excited to meet people who want to give a shelter animal a forever home and we're more than happy to guide you through this process. Adding a new four legged friend to your household can be both challenging and exciting.


Pet ownership is a huge responsibility; with proper care, most dogs can live 12 to 15 years and most cats can live 15 to 20. It’s critical to consider what's likely to be happening in your life over the next 15 to 20 years prior to adopting.  Carefully, reviewing a new pet-parent checklist is a good idea before you take the plunge!


When you first arrive at The Smithtown Animal Shelter and Adoption Center you’ll come straight to our trailer where you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly staff who’ll help guide you in choosing that perfect pet. If you find an animal that you’d like to adopt we'll then ask you to submit our Adoption Questionnaire.


Staff will process your application and verify any information: landlords; past/present veterinarians, and personal references. 


Our adoption fee is only $60 cash for any animal which includes:


•         Spaying or neutering

•         Distemper vaccination

•         Rabies vaccination

•         Heartworm test (for dogs)

•         Feline Leukemia/FIV test (for cats)

•         Flea/tick treatment

•         Deworming

•         Microchip
