Our Mission

We are steadfast to our mission which is to provide for the welfare of animals and reduce the number of homeless pets. We are committed to our goal which is to promote and nurture the bond between people and animals through adoption, education and community outreach.  Your support makes all of this possible and together we can help save more lives!


Who we are

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, open admission, no kill shelter that relies on the generosity of our donors and volunteers to care for the homeless animals in our community, and place them in loving “forever homes.” The shelter provides a stepping stone for these animals – offering them housing, food, medical treatment, training, and rehabilitation when necessary.  For 13 years since the town eliminated the shelter and SASF was formed, we  have been dedicated to caring for homeless animals in our community of 25 hamlets and villages-but… we don’t stop there. We rescue dogs from “kill shelters” and dire situations from across the country from New York City to Georgia to Puerto Rico and even Mexico.  We have proven ourselves to be a leading shelter. We pride ourselves on 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 that 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. Our program socializes, integrates, and enriches the lives of shelter dogs and it has proven to increase the rate of adoptability of these dogs.
