Animal Shelter

New Hours of Operation

Brookhaven’s Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is closed to the public until further notice. Those still interested in adoption, foster care or who have questions on redemption are asked to call the Shelter at 631-451-6950 during business hours, Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm; Saturday from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm; and Sunday from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm. To speak with a member of the Animal Shelter staff select option #2. We are looking forward to having all of our volunteers back soon!

Fosters / Adopters

During this time of need, the Town of Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is looking for fosters/adopters for medium to large mixed breed dogs. We have dogs that will require a single pet household as well as some that get along with other dogs. We also have a number of dogs with some behavioral issues such as anxiety, guarding of food, toys or space, stranger reactivity, or some barrier reactivity and will require a very specific type of home. If you are able to take on a dog that fits any of this criteria, please complete our online Matchmaker Application (Dog ApplicationCat Application) and a member of our staff will be in touch with you. Please note that all potential fosters/adopters will be required to make an appointment to visit the shelter for a "meet and greet" along with any other members and/or dogs that live in the household, as well as provide proof of home ownership or written landlord/homeowner approval.

About the Animal Shelter

The Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center staff is dedicated to helping the homeless pets in our township. Contact the Animal Shelter

Additionally, coalition building with private humane societies and other animal organizations, significant upgrades to the kennels and shelter atmosphere, the addition of an education room and new training programs for the staff have all contributed to recent successes.
