Pet Adoption on Long Island

Selmers Pet Land of Huntington, NY is one of the best places to get purebred registered puppies on Long Island. Our puppies are healthy and do not come from “puppy mills” or unauthorized breeding facilities.

Although we sell purebred puppies here at Selmers, we still firmly believe that you should consider adopting from one of the many local animal shelters on Long Island. These dogs and cats need homes, and many of them are just as great of companions as any purebred animal can be. Please look over this list and consider adopting a kitten or puppy, even if it costs us a sale.

Some benefits of an adopted dog or cat:

  • Access to mixed-breed animals with unique traits
  • Enormous selection from hundreds of shelters
  • Have the opportunity to save an animal that may never find a home
  • Less costly than buying a purebred dog or cat
  • It’s good for your town, good for the animals, and good for humanity!
