About Our Shelter

The Broome County Dog Shelter has been in operation since 1956. Although Broome County allows use of their housing facility for dogs, the shelter operates independently of County funding. It is supported through contracts with twelve towns to house stray dogs and puppies, as well as through redemption fees, adoption fees and donations to our trust fund.
