The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) has continued their efforts to raise funds and awareness for homeless animals, and the Annual Unconditional Love Gala, happening Saturday, August 21, 2021 in Southampton NY, will help them reach new goals. The SASF relies heavily on the funds generated by the Gala to care for their shelter animals. They not only take in community pets but also partner with other rescues, located on Long Island and areas in the South including Puerto Rico, to save animals that are in dire situations. Oftentimes, the SASF shelter is their last resort.

This past year, the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation found homes for over 800 animals and provided the community with necessary resources like their Wellness Clinic, Advo-Cats Program, low-cost spay/neuter mobile clinic, as well as other community outreach programs. These services help pet owners who fall on hard times keep their animals with them and out of the shelters.
