About Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation
The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) is a privately funded non-profit organization formed in 2010 to assume the operation of the municipal shelter, which was scheduled to close due to Southampton Township budget cuts. SASF serves the animals of the Hamptons as the preeminent community resource.
Pet overpopulation on Long Island is a major issue leading to the homelessness of innocent animals. As the only open admissions shelter in our community, we accept strays and surrenders without restriction and prepare them for adoption by providing housing, food, medical care, training, and enrichment. SASF helps animals in need, whether that means caring for strays found wandering the streets, rescuing neglected and abandoned animals, or saving dogs from overcrowded municipal shelters or displaced from natural disasters.
The shelter is a safe-haven for all animals, and for some, a last resort. To expand our reach, we operate a low-cost mobile veterinary spay and neuter clinic that travels to underserved areas of Suffolk County. Our community outreach initiatives include offering surrender prevention programs (Pet Food Pantry), humane education in local schools, subsidiz...ed spay/neuter surgeries for feral community cats (Advo-Cats Program), and an on-site affordable Wellness Clinic.
