What you can do to help
Kent Animal Shelter offers this service at its clinic at one of the lowest costs on Long
Island because we believe it's an important service for animals and the communities
where they live. This service reduces pet homelessness, overpopulation, starvation,
property destruction, cruelty and euthanasia associated with unwanted kittens and
puppies in the community.

Through donations, Kent Animal Shelter has been able to provide this service at low cost.
Kent’s high rate of spays and neuters, adoptions and rescues was one of the major
factors in its being recognized as the 2009 Shelter of the Year by the North Shore Animal
League America ®, which was a national distinction.
“We always have a waiting list of animals waiting to be adopted. We try to find homes for
as many adoptable pets as we can. We have to control the animal population, or the
problem of abused, homeless and neglected animals will be exponentially worse,” said
Pamela Green, Executive Director of Kent Animal Shelter.
All cats and dogs adopted from Kent Animal Shelter come spayed or neutered, as well as
microchipped and vaccinated.
To have a pet spayed or neutered, please call the Kent Animal Shelter clinic at 631-727-
7797 to make an appointment. The clinic is open Monday through Saturday from 10AM -
