About the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation

The Southampton Animal Shelter was operated as a municipal shelter by the Town of Southampton until January 2010. Due to budget cuts at the time, the Town eliminated the shelter. A concerned group of locals citizens banded together to save the shelter and created the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. The mission is to provide for the welfare of the ever growing number of homeless animals, and, in turn, to place them in permanent caring homes.

The Shelter is primarily dedicated to caring for homeless animals in the community of twenty-two towns–but they do not stop there. They rescue dogs from “kill shelters” from across the country and they have also partnered with No More Tears Rescue to rehabilitate and find loving homes for adult dogs from puppy mills.

They have proven ourselves to be a leading shelter. They pride themselves in finding excellent homes for large numbers of animals. Since 2010, the shelter’s adoption rate has increased significantly due to the many new services they provide: such as a veterinary clinic which handles all incoming medical evaluations and care, public spay and neuter services, micro-chipping, and inoculations. They have one of the best training and behavior departments in the country, and dog training classes are also offered to the public for a fee.

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that relies on the caring generosity of our donors and volunteers to care to for the homeless animals in our community, and place them in loving “forever homes.”
