About Save-A-Pet

WE ARE THE ISLAND OF MISFIT DOGS! These four dogs will spend yet another holiday without a family or a home to call their own. Bam Bam is a 7 year old Cane Corso, abused by his so called owners, beaten to the point of arthritis and spinal damage, Layla was dumped, pregnant with heartworm at a kill shelter as the owners said they are so sick of her getting pregnant while tied up outside,(all her puppies died) Charlie Brown is 15! Charlie has known nothing but the life of an outside dog, chained up 15 years! And last but not least is Lamb Chop, who will probably die at the shelter, (thus his prison garb). He is an 8 year old Bichon that was hit by a car and left for dead (we had to amputate his back leg) in the hood of Brooklyn 3 years ago. These ARE the faces of Save-A-Pet. These are the dogs that need rescue, these are the dogs NO ONE wants. Yes, they are safe with us, but NO, they are not happy. Each one an individual. Each one with a chilling story of abuse and neglect. Each one deserving of love, and each one REJECTED time and time again! The island of misfit dogs is waiting for Santa to fly in and save them! Will you be a Santa for one of our lifers?
Selfish, ignorant people need not apply!

Welcome Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center

We are located in Port Jefferson Station on Long Island, New York. View our hours of operation. We look forward to seeing you.

At our Long Island animal shelter, we believe it is our moral responsibility to protect and improve the lives of abused, abandoned, and homeless cats and dogs, and to place them in loving permanent homes. We provide spay and neuter services for Long Island feral cats and any necessary medical care for pets. We work diligently to educate the public, especially children, on the importance of pet sterilization, responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals.

If you are looking to adopt a pet, please view the dogs and cats in our Long Island adoption shelter and then fill out our online adoption application.

We are a non-profit, no-kill shelter 501c(3) organization located in the heart of Long Island, New York founded in 1994 by Dori Scofield. We are supported solely by public donations and every dollar makes a difference. Your support can save the life of a cat or dog. It is our intention to provide you with the most current and the latest information on our events and fundraisers. We hope you will visit us often and please donate to help us continue our mission of saving the lives of homeless, abandoned and abused pets. We are seeking funds to continue saving the lives of animals on Long Island and beyond. Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Please browse our site and feel free to contact us with any inquiries.

Our Story

Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue was founded in 1994 in Port Jefferson Station, Long Island. Our concern for the devastatingly large surplus of domestic animals sowed the seeds for our ever growing animal shelter. Under the direction of founder/president Dori Scofield, the dedicated staff, volunteers and team of veterinarians have made Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue a safe harbor for companion animals.
