About

Our Mission

The mission of the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation is to nurture the bond between humans and companion animals through education, advocacy and adoption. We enrich the lives of the animals in our care through training, affection and veterinary services, ultimately placing them in a loving forever home.

Our Vision

As New York’s leading shelter for all companion animals, we desire the ability to save more lives by expanding our capacity to care for a greater number of animals in need.

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 14 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 across the country from New York City to Georgia to Puerto Rico and even Mexico.  We have proven ourselves to be a leading shelter, and we pride ourselves on finding excellent homes for a 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.
