Animal Shelter Seeking More 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. The recent success of the fosters/adopters program has provided forever homes for many dogs, but there are more available at the shelter. Some dogs require a single pet household, while there are other dogs available who get along well 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 at 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. Pictured are “Gizmo” (left) and “Angie,” (right), two of the dogs available at the Brookhaven Animal Shelter for fostering or adoption.

The Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is currently closed to the public. Those interested in adoption, foster care and questions on redemption are asked to call 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.
