Available for adoption at the Smithtown Animal Shelter
Angel is an 8-year-old Blue Nose Pit who has been a resident of the Smithtown Animal Shelter for over four years. After all this time in the shelter, she is more than ready to find the perfect family for her to love. She is very smart and strong, and she enjoys car rides, food, and splashing in the kiddie pool. Angel can be stubborn sometimes, so she will require an experienced owner who can provide her with some structure. She has a history of mast cell tumors and will need a home that can keep an eye out for new growths so they can be removed immediately. Angel should be the only pet in the household, and she would do well in a home with older kids who don’t mind her energy.
If you are interested in meeting Angel, please fill out an application to schedule time to properly interact with her in a domestic setting, which includes the shelter’s Meet and Greet Room, dog runs, and Dog Walk trail. Call 631-360-7575 for more information.
Available for adoption through Tender Loving Cats
Meet Budweiser! This lovable and handsome 7-year-old boy loves attention! He’ll find his favorite furry ball or mouse and carry it around the house. He’s quiet and independent and just loves to hang out around people or sit in a nice sunny spot. Budweiser does well with other cats and children but not dogs. He must go into a household with no dogs.
Budweiser walked into a feral colony in Brentwood where volunteers were trapping. He was so sweet & friendly but less than two days after being trapped, his health began to decline. He was rushed to the emergency vet and it was found that he a urinary blockage and the decision was made for him to have Perineal Urethrostomy Surgery so that he would never block again. Budweiser is lucky because without being rescued he would not have survived on the streets much longer. He will need to have his urinary PH monitored or be kept on urinary food along with being given cyclosporine to help keep his allergies at bay.
TLC will cover his RX food & medication to any approved adopter at their cost for his lifetime. For more information about adopting Budweiser, please complete an adoption application here: tenderlovingcats.org/adoption-application.html.

**Double Adoption** One-year-olds Edward Cullen (Adoption #PR00061) and Charlie Chaplin (Adoption # PR00062) started their rescue story in a foster home together in Puerto Rico, but it wasn’t until they reconnected in a room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center that a true bond developed. Edward clearly finds confidence in being in Charlie’s company, and although Charlie is quite shy, he too feels safer when his friend is nearby. Wouldn’t you love to see them snuggling in your living room?
**Double Adoption** Five-month-old Fred (Adoption #H211289) and George (Adoption #H211290) were recently welcomed into the Animal League America family when their local rescuer brought them to ensure a safer life for the pair.

You’ll find Fred and George zooming around their room playing with all the toys, with Fred ready for ear rubs when offered. George is still learning that gentle hands yield rewards. That’s why a quiet, predicable home (with children over age 8 and cat-experienced adults) will help these brothers settle into family life. With a little nurturing, you’ll be rewarded with some gentle head bumps and a ton of gratitude!
