Our Mission

Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center is a municipality animal shelter for the Town of Islip. We shelter dogs, cats, rodents, and reptiles. We are also an adoption center, where we encourage people to come and meet our amazing adoptable pets!

Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center is made up of an awesome team of dedicated animal care workers consisting of Kennel Aides, our Vet Tech, Animal Control Officers and Office Staff. We all work together to ensure the animals can live the best life possible both while they're being sheltered and as they transition into their forever homes. 

Adoption Policy

We always have a new variety of animals going up for adoption! Be sure to keep checking back for new additions. 


Adoption process:

Come down and meet your new pet! Fill out an application of the pet of your choice. You and your family (and current pets included)  will need to do a meet and greet with the animal. Once that is conducted and you're approved, you just pay the adoption fee and sign the paperwork!


Adoption fees:

Dogs - $131 for Islip Town Residents (includes rabies shots, spay/neuter surgeries, microchip, and Town dog license.)

$125 for non-residents (includes rabies shots, spay/neuter surgeries, and microchip)


Cats - $100.00 (includes rabies shot, microchip and spay/neuter surgery.)

Please come down and meet our animals! They've been waiting for you!
