The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation hosted their 10th Annual Unconditional Love Gala on Saturday, July 20th, 2019. The event took place under the tents at Wickapogue and Old Town Roads in Southampton, NY - starting with a cocktail hour, followed by a parade by staff of animals cared for by the Shelter, live auction, dinner and dancing.


The Event Chair was Jean Shafiroff and the Honoree Aimee SadlerFounder & CEO of Dogs Playing for LifeGregory D’Elia emceed the event, The 2019 Gala’s Host Committee included: Randi Schatz, Amy Cosman, Antonella Bertello, Missy Hargraves, and Sharon Kerr. The Junior Chair is Kate McEntee, and Junior Co-Chairs include: Kingsley Crawford, Jenny Dwork, and Merritt Piro. The 2019 Media Sponsor was Hamptons Magazine. The event planner for the evening was Claire Bean. Entertainment was provided by Elan Artists’ Nation with dinner catered by Stone Creek Inn.


With an overwhelming turnout, The Gala was a success in raising money and awareness for the efforts of the Charity. A live auction included fund raising for the shelter’s training program with Dogs Playing for Life; and opportunities to match shelter dogs to veterans to become service dogs through programs K9s For Warriors, and Paws of War. Guests were also raising their paddles to sponsor feeding a dog or a cat for a year; group golf outings at the East End’s most prestigious golf courses including Shinnecock Hills and Atlantic, skiing in Sun Valley, a week at a private resort and an auction for a classic British motorcar, a beautifully restored 1952 MG TD.


Proceeds from the event directly support more than 5,000 animals who enter the shelter’s doors annually. Whether caring and finding homes for stray and abandoned animals to providing low cost veterinary care and dog training so that animals can remain in their home, the Southampton Animal Shelter has become a vital resource in their community. With the generous support of donors, they can continue to provide lifesaving programs and services.


Individual tickets for the gala were tiered $500 and $1,000. Junior tickets (for under 35) were $300.


The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation is unique on the East End, taking in animals from all 7 villages and 18 hamlets in the Township. With its “open admissions” policy, it accepts all animals – no matter what breed, physical or medical condition, special needs, or what age. The shelter also takes in animals from neighboring towns and beyond. The shelter helps and saves animals from natural disasters such as hurricanes, and overcrowded shelters. Shelter services are broad-based. It provides low-cost, mobile veterinary services throughout the region. Plus, it conducts educational classes in local schools on humane animal care. The Southampton Animal Shelter is the true “community” shelter on the East End. Hurricane, disaster & over crowded shelters


Most significantly, the shelter’s Medical Services and the Behavior & Training program are unsurpassed. These, along with the professionalism and “match-making skills” of the Adoption Department, are the key to the shelter’s extraordinary adoption rate of 96%. Shelter staff, and its fabulous volunteers, make sure that no animal is left behind.
