January 8, 2015 Farmingville, NY – On January 7, the Town of Brookhaven Animal Shelter presented its first “Dogs Playing for Life” seminar, an introduction to a training program for shelter dogs featuring canine play groups. The program, which has been introduced to more than 50 shelters across the United States and Canada, utilizes play groups as an assessment, enrichment, training and adoption enhancement tool. The goal of the program is to demonstrate how play groups can improve the quality of life for dogs and the people who work and volunteer at shelters. Pictured left to right at the seminar are Councilman Dan Panico, Animal Shelter Director Ashley Boyd and “Dogs Playing for Life” founder Aimee Sadler, who is also the Director of Training and Behavior for the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation.

October 7, 2014 “Howl-O-Ween” adoption event to be held on October 25th Farmingville, NY – Supervisor Ed Romaine has announced that the Town will waive all adoption fees at the Brookhaven Animal Shelter for the month of October. The Town Board waived the fees in recognition of National Pit Bull Awareness month, to encourage residents to adopt a pet at the shelter. The Town will also sponsor the “Howl-O-Ween” adoption event and costume party on Saturday, October 25 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. There will be food, refreshments and music at the party and our dogs will be dressed in costumes. “Waiving adoption fees helps make it easier to find loving homes for the animals at the shelter, many of which have been there for a year or more,” said Supervisor Romaine. “I hope that people will have it in their hearts to visit during the month of October and attend the ‘Howl-O-Ween” party to meet a furry friend that they can take home to be part of their family.” Normal adoption fees range from $5 for a dog that has not been neutered or spayed; $10 for a dog that has been neutered or spayed; $15 for a cat that has not been neutered or spayed and $20 for a cat that has been neutered or spayed. Along with the adoption fees being waived, the Town will also waive the cost to neuter, spay or vaccinate any adopted dog or cat. The Town will also continue to issue free licenses for adopted dogs. Those who are interested in adopting a pet should visit the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center located at 300 Horseblock Road in Brookhaven. It is open Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The shelter is closed on Wednesdays.
