The goal of the Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center is to maintain animal control measures needed to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Islip residents, and to bring animals in off the streets and get them healthy, happy and into homes. Our dedicated, compassionate staff of employees and volunteers facilitates this process. We encourage you to adopt and save the life of an adorable, loving animal. If you see a pet you are interested in, please contact us to find out additional information or to set up a meet and greet!

Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) Program

Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) is a program in which free-roaming feral cats are humanely trapped, sterilized, medically treated, ear-tipped, and released back into the public. The Town coordinates with the Animal Lover’s League to assist Islip Residents to humanely trap and transport feral cats to the Town’s Animal Shelter.
