Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation! We have many opportunities for volunteers to assist in helping out the animals at our shelter, from walking dogs, spending time with cats, assistance with laundry, help with special events and offsite adoption events, and more! It’s only with the support of volunteers that we can continue our mission to help more animals!
Adult volunteer are ages 18+ and out of high school.
Prospective adult volunteers for all SASF programs are required to attend one of our volunteer orientations. Specific program needs and volunteer opportunities will be explained at volunteer orientation. We request a $25 contribution at orientation for a volunteer T-shirt and to help defray the cost of administering the volunteer program, which leaves more resources available for care of the animals.
Opportunities for Younger Children (ages 10-14)
We know there are many children in this age group who would love to work with the animals; unfortunately, we do not have the supervision to offer this as independent volunteer work. Children ages 10-14 year olds may accompany the parent or legal guardian during their volunteer time after the adult registers as a volunteer and attends orientation. We ask that no more than two children accompany an adult at one time. For each child we request $10 to cover the cost of their volunteer t-shirt.
Opportunities for Teens (ages 15-18 and still in high school)
Thank you for your interest in the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation Teen Volunteer Program!
The teen program is for 15-18 year olds (18 & still in high school).
The first step to volunteering is to RSVP to attend our teen orientation. Attendance with a parent or legal guardian is required in order for them to sign waivers. We also request a $25 contribution at orientation for a volunteer T-shirt and to help defray the cost of administering the volunteer program, which leaves more resources available for care of the animals. This will be collected at the orientation.
