**Special Request from the Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter**

Chevy
Chevy

Chevy is the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week and needs the forever home he desperately deserves. This 1-and-a-half-year-old Pit Mix has had a very difficult start to his young life. He was found by law enforcement lying on the side of the road on New Year’s Eve. He was emaciated, completely blind, and very scared and injured. X-rays showed that he had broken and fractured bones all over. It became clear that these injuries were the result of either abuse or negligence.

Chevy had surgery to repair a dislocated elbow and spent some time in a foster home so his recovery could be closely monitored. Chevy’s condition began to improve, as he started to perk up and play, and showed signs of vision returning in one of his eyes. He still gave a happy greeting to everyone who walked by and would nudge people for affection. His body may have been damaged, but his attitude and spirit would never be broken. 

While his vision was improving in one eye, his other eye still had a detached retina, swelling, and light bleeding. The difficult decision was made to remove this eye. Now that he has fully recovered from this surgery, his doctors believe he will live a pain-free life. Chevy is finally getting to experience the happy puppy life that he never had before. He has gained back weight, is strong and mobile despite still having a slight limp and loves to snuggle and kiss. Even though he was mistreated by humans before, he is still very trusting and friendly to all new people. Chevy is the perfect example of the ultimate comeback story, and he won’t let anything get him down. 

The shelter will only allow Chevy into the best of homes who will provide him with the love and care he was missing in his past life. Chevy has experience living with dogs and gets along well with them, but he does need some time to get used to other canine companions and introduce himself. Due to his limited vision, he should only be with older kids that will respect his sight trouble. He also has a well-managed food allergy. 

If you are interested in meeting Chevy, please call 631-360-7575 or complete an online application to schedule time to properly interact with him in a domestic setting, which includes the shelter’s Meet and Greet Room, the dog runs, and Dog Walk trail.

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America

Myles and Melo
Myles and Melo

**Double Adoption** When asthma became an issue for a child in their home, 2-year-olds Myles (Adoption #H210306) and Melo (Adoption #H210308) found themselves needing help finding a new home. Mellow Melo is taking these changes in stride which will is helping his shyer brother Myles adjust to their new situation. These brothers are hopeful they’ll be settled back into home life soon, with the help of a loving and welcoming family.

Ink
Ink

Five-year-old Ink (Adoption #BF4471) was in desperate need of rescue when he was discovered discarded in a junkyard. Animal League America vets tended to his needs and their staff provided the tender loving care he needed after the hardship of surviving outdoors. This timid, gentle soul is FIV+, likely a result of his time outside, but now he’s safely snuggled in a bed in his room at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center and has a life of comfort to look forward to. Help us make sure the rest of his life is filled with love and nurturing. If you’d like to be Ink’s hero, he’s seeking peace and a never-ending flow of treats delivered to his bed. A home with an experienced cat owner (and children over age 10) will offer him the love and consistency to settle him into life as a beloved family member.

Charlie and Emma
Charlie and Emma

**Double Adoption and Senior Alert** Animal League America delivered 10-year-old Charlie (Adoption #CO0024) and 8-year-old Emma (Adoption #CO0025) from a life-threatening situation into the loving hands of their medical team who restored them to health. Peace, quiet, love, and tenderness are all they’ve ever wanted, and when it’s received, these loving ladies deliver heaps of gratitude for their fresh chance at the life they’ve always deserved. That gratitude will be transferred straight to you when you welcome them into your heart and home.

Wolfgang
Wolfgang

Two-year-old Wolfgang (Adoption #H212167) was rescued locally and brought to Animal League America to ensure his life would get back on a safe track towards peaceful happily ever after. His eyes tell us a story about a painful time fending for himself outdoors he entered their care. A slow approach will help you earn his trust; experienced adults (and children over age 8) will provide him all the security and consistency with which we’ve seen him thrive. If your quiet household could use a special someone to curl up in its cozy corners, please consider bringing Wolfgang into your heart and home.  

Bebe
Bebe

Seven-year-old Bebe (Adoption #H207038) lost her lifelong home and has leaned on Animal League America to provide her a new (temporary) one, a quiet place to receive all the ear rubs you can muster. She’d appreciate having peace restored to her life, and a permanent home (with children ages 8 and above) will renew her spirits. She’s just a lovely tabby deserving of love and devotion from a special admirer – hopefully, that’s you!  Come meet the Bebe today at the Port Washington campus!

Tru and Blue
Tru and Blue

**Double Adoption** Sisters Tru (Adoption #PR00305) and Blue (Adoption #PR00306) are super-bonded and super-cute! These beautiful 6-month-old girls from Puerto Rico are hoping the family they’ve been promised would choose them comes quickly. Tender Tru is a bit shyer than her beloved Blu, but together, they’re ready to take on new adventures in your living room with just a bit of encouragement.
