Animal Shelter Seeking Fosters/Adopters for Medium to Large Mixed Breed Dogs

Town Seal

Farmingville, NY -  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. Some dogs require a single pet household as well as some that get along with other dogs. There are also 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 interested, please complete the Brookhaven Animal Shelter’s online “Matchmaker” application and a member of the animal shelter 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."

The Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is closed to the public until April 1. Those still interested in adoption, foster care and questions on redemption are asked to call the Animal Shelter during business hours at 631-451-6950, Monday to 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.
