The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation

The Southampton Animal Shelter was operated as a municipal shelter by the Town of Southampton until January 2010. Due to budget cuts at the time, the Town eliminated the shelter. A concerned group of locals citizens banded together to save the shelter and created the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. The mission is to provide for the welfare of the ever growing number of homeless animals, and, in turn, to place them in permanent caring homes.

The Shelter is primarily dedicated to caring for homeless animals in our community of twenty-two towns–but we don’t stop there. We rescue dogs from “kill shelters” from across the country and we have also partnered with No More Tears Rescue to rehabilitate and find loving homes for adult dogs from puppy mills.

We have proven ourselves to be a leading shelter. We pride ourselves in finding excellent homes for large numbers of animals. Since 2010, the shelter’s adoption rate has increased significantly due to the many new services we provide:  such as a veterinary clinic which handles all incoming medical evaluations and care, public spay and neuter services, micro-chipping, and inoculations. We have one of the best training and behavior departments in the country, and dog training classes are also offered to the public for a fee. Through the Playing for Life!™ program, our Executive Director of Training and Behavior, Aimee Sadler, gives professional instructional seminars to other shelters and rescue groups across the nation so they may also provide better care and training. The Playing for Life!™ program socializes, integrates, and enriches the lives of shelter dogs and it has proven to increase the rate of adoptability of these dogs.

As of January 2014 we have taken our services “on the road” to fulfill our mission of reducing the number of homeless pets. The ASPCA has granted SASF a Veterinary Mobile Clinic to target low income pet owners throughout New York State by offering low cost spay and neutering. Our Veterinary Mobile Clinic also offers low cost inoculations and micro-chipping.

The present economy is very challenging. People are experiencing hardships, causing many to be unable to care for their pets. These pets are often surrendered to the shelter or simply abandoned. We have had to expand our facility due to the increase in abandoned animals and are in the process of raising additional funds to enlarge and modernize the veterinary clinic, as well as our facility and services.

We are steadfast to our mission which is to provide for the welfare of animals and reduce the number of homeless pets—and we are committed to our goal which is to promote and nurture the bond between people and animals through adoption, education and community outreach.

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that relies on the caring generosity of our donors and volunteers to care to for the homeless animals in our community, and place them in loving “forever homes.”
