If you have lost your pet browse the list of Lost and Found animals or call the Animal Shelter at 631-451-6950. You must still come to the Shelter to identify your pet - shelter workers cannot identify your pet, only you can do that. If the animal has been injured, there may be an outstanding bill, which must be paid prior to the animal being redeemed from the Shelter.
If your pet is licensed, bring proof of licensing and rabies when you come to redeem it. Proof of current rabies is a valid rabies paper certificate, not the tag.
If you find a stray dog during the hours the shelter is open, you can call the adoption center for an animal control officer to come pick up the pet, or you can bring the dog to the shelter yourself.
