We interrupt your regularly scheduled broadcast for an urgent message… Smithtown Today is launching a full scale effort to help find Dinah the perfect home. Dinah has been residing at the Smithtown Animal Shelter since 2014 and it’s about time to find this sweet little girl a home that is just right for her.
Animal lover and Councilwoman, Lisa Inzerillo tells us that Dinah is the kind of dog that will make anyone’s heart melt, however advises a home without small children.
“I have spent some time with Dinah. If I didn’t have 2 dogs and a cat, she would be mine. Dinah does have a lot of energy and would be best suited with a person who enjoys the outdoors, hiking, running, etc…. She is sweet and kind, loves her toys and belly rubs. She did get along well with my 11 year old daughter Marcella, who is in every sense a calm quiet girl…” – Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo
Michelle, the adoption coordinator attests to Dinah’s loving nature and tells us, Dinah is extremely intelligent exclaiming “She aced the agility challenge the very first time out.” Michelle drove home the importance of finding the right home for Dinah, such as an active couple or a family with older children (teenagers). The perfect home for Dinah would be an active adult family, without other animals, who will take her on runs, hikes or choose to do agility and scent training with her.

Michelle also informed Smithtown Today that the shelter can provide training for all Animal Shelter dogs adopted out. She would like to see Dinah located within the hamlets of Smithtown, so they can easily assist in any transition process, be it training, recommending a good vet or dog runs. If you think you may be Dinah’s Soul Mates, please call the shelter today, to schedule at least one hour of time, to get better acquainted with this loving little girl.
