As the Outreach Administrator of SASF it is important to teach our community about humane animal treatment and make sure that the community realizes we are the sole caretakers of lost, abandoned, and surrendered companion pets. This is a huge responsibility financially, physically, and medically. We rely solely on donations and community volunteers. Besides individual volunteers, the boy scouts, the girl scouts, and school groups are all a part of SASF.
We also give back to the community by working with families with a disabled member, and organizations that deal with disabilities. Animals and the disabled have no boundaries – love, friendship and socialization between a disabled person and a pet has limitless possibilities. We embrace helping families through a new program of helping the disabled reach us. We have been working with Southampton Fresh Air Home and Hospice children – you’d be surprised at what pet stimulation can do to awaken sensitivities.
Small community benefits are part of the outreach program. Volunteers and graphic artists are always needed to help with events. Everyone involved with us is an ambassador of good will! We work to make people in the entire Southampton township realize we are the best and need their help to maintain our high standards of care, housing, and finding the perfect home for our pets! Our live release rate is 96% – an unheard of number. This is because we are the best thanks to all the wonderful friends we are making and our caring staff. Come meet me and become part of the SASF family. You’ll be rewarded with a wagging tail!
