Special Request from the Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter
Hubie (Hubert), Schubie (Schubert), and Dubie (Dubois) are a set of male guinea pig friends of unknown ages who were found by a good samaritan abandoned in Blydenburgh Park. Hubie is a shy and gentle tan and white guinea pig who loves to get treats. Schubie is a curious calico who is the largest of the group and the most outgoing. Dubie is an active black Guinea Pig who loves to run and play and is the smallest of the three. These sweet guys can be adopted together or separately if need be.
The Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter is not equipped to safely house animals other than dogs and cats long term. However, if an animal is in danger and needs housing temporarily until another rescue has room, they will do their best to provide safe shelter while they can. While the animal waits for space to open in another rescue, it will be available for adoption through the adoption center.
For more information or to meet any of the shelter’s cats and kittens or doggies available to adopt or foster, call the shelter today at 631-360-7575.
Available for adoption through Tender Loving Cats
Bagels is a sweet and affectionate girl. She isn’t a fan of being picked up so she’ll go ahead and make herself comfy right next to you. Bagels will let you know that she loves you by rolling over and showing her tummy. She enjoys head scratches and will head bump you if you stop. Bagels is an independent girl and will need to have moments to herself. The rest of the time she is craving for your attention. Bagels would do well with children 12 and older.

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America
**Senior Alert** It’s always sad for a senior to lose the home they’d known their whole lives, but 12-year-old Dempsey (Adoption #D43983) needed much more than moral support as he transitioned to a new life in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. This tender tabby needed a plan to restore him to optimum health. Newly diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism, Dempsey has successfully responded to daily medication. He also received entropion eyelid repair surgery which immediately alleviated him of some discomfort. These conditions will be covered through our Pet Health Centers at cost. You’ll find Dempsey eager to repay the kindness he’s received, hopeful you’ll sit with him and rub his chin. Once you begin, you’ll never want to stop! Dempsey’s misfortune has turned into a new lease on life, and he’s shared with us that he wants to spend the rest of it being doted upon as the only pet in his home.
**Double Adoption** When 1-year-olds Mercury (Adoption #H211412) and Mars (Adoption #H211413) were orbiting around someone’s backyard as older kittens (or “cattens”), they had no idea how safe their landing was to be. This timid pair of devoted siblings has leaned heavily upon each other as they learn about the galaxy of indoor living. Animal League America’s loving team has given them time and attention in a quiet place where they’ve learned all about trust—and treats! If you’ve had cats before, you’ll see how love and patience is all that’s needed to coax them into exploring your living room. A family (with children ages 12 and up) will provide the predictable setting in which they’ve had so much success while in our care. Want to discover Mars and Mercury for yourself?
Five-year-old Shell’s (Adoption #IR1355) long journey from Oman to the United States in search of safety left him confused by the experience. Animal League America gave him all the time and patience he needed to gain equilibrium, relearning how to trust those he once feared. Where he was once apprehensive about being near people, he now craves cuddles with visitors. Shell is looking for a calm, consistent home with experienced adults, children over 12 years old, and no other pets. Putting Shell in the center of your hearts will make his first real home feel like he was always meant to be with you.
**Double Adoption** Simba (Adoption #SCR3139) and Sushi (Adoption #NCI2607) each lost their separate homes recently but discovered a newfound friendship in the room they share at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. While 1-year-old Simba has felt agitated by the changes in his life, 2-year-old Sushi has been an encouraging mentor, correcting Simba’s overly energetic behavior and showing him a more appropriate way to pursue friendships. They’ve loved watching the missing pieces to their puzzles come together and would be thrilled to share the brotherhood they’ve created with an experienced adopter who has the quiet, predictable home (with any kids over age 10, please) they know these tenacious boys would enjoy. Ready to make way for a lasting friendship? Please consider Simba and Sushi as the missing piece to your family puzzle!
**Double Adoption** A local rescuer brought in Rhodes (Adoption #BF4165) and Delphi (Adoption #BF4166), in need of some TLC and interaction with caring, human hands. Time in a quiet, consistent space showed them how wonderful the world of being part of a family could be, and they’ve tucked them into a sunny room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center to finish their education under the tutelage of some very devoted feline mentors. Success in their home will come from adults with experience nurturing fearful kittens, and children over 12-years-old equipped to offer them a consistent, predictable environment in which to enjoy the rest of their lives.
**Double Adoption** Locally rescued kittens Olympia (Adoption #BF4173) and Argos (Adoption #BF4175) are now prepared to take you on their next great adventure, equipped with the confidence they gained from their devoted friends at Animal League America. Exploring every toy is a top priority for these inquisitive 7-month-olds. Olympia has always been ready for the opportunity to find a family, but she waited by her brother’s side until he felt ready too. Well, Argos is ready now! You’ll find him at the door waiting to greet you. Invite this adorable sibling pair into your predictable home, one with children over the age of eight and experienced adults, and you’ll discover them captivating the hearts of your entire family in no time!
**Double Adoption** When 7-month-old, bonded brothers Ash (Adoption #SCR3810) and Brutus (Adoption #SCR3811) arrived from a southern municipal shelter, they were shaken up by the changes and leaned into each other for support. Now in a lovely room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, they’re experiencing what it feels like to be safe and cared for for the first time in their life! What’s next for these quiet soulmates is a home in which to share these wonderful feelings, with a family worthy of them. (A household with children over the age of 10, please.) Watch their confidence continue to blossom.
**Double Adoption** Six-month-olds Carley (Adoption #WV0348) and Harley (Adoption #WV0350) made the long journey from West Virginia to North Shore Animal League America. Carley was feeling unsure about her big trip to New York, but her buddy Harley stayed by her side, encouraging her to take risks with the humans, and that’s really paid off. Just some gentle encouragement—and treats—is all it takes to warm up the shyer Carley, while Harley is fully enjoying all that freedom his room has to offer. How cute would these two besties be making themselves at home… in your home?
**Double Adoption** Matching 4-month-old mini house panthers are our favorite! Who wouldn’t want to coo about the adorable Nova (Adoption #T105958) and Scotia (Adoption #T105959)? These bonded baby sisters traveled to Long Island all the way from Tennessee with the intention of finding a real home—their first! All it takes to be a hero is to adopt a this purrfect pair then just sit back and soak in all the gratitude!
