This year’s Unconditional Love Gala exceeded its fundraising goal through donations, pet sponsorships and silent and live auctions, as led by Katie Jacobs. All proceeds go towards SASF's crucial initiatives, such as their low-cost spay/neuter mobile van granted by the ASPCA, efforts to rescue animals enslaved in puppy mills, and the daily care of the rescues within the shelter. Proceeds also benefit the shelter's programs that help special needs children, along with educating, mentoring and implementing SASF's "Playing for Life" program, which is currently in more than 40 shelters and recognized at major animal conferences throughout the U.S.



The mission of the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation is to provide for the welfare of homeless animals and find them loving homes. As the only open admissions animal welfare organization in the area, they are dedicated to promoting and nurturing the bond between people and animals through adoption, medical care, behavior training and education. Proceeds from the evening's event go to support the critical programs and services they offer that make them the leader in animal welfare and responsible pet ownership in the community.

Guests also heard from Drs. Samuel Ryu, Yusuf Hannun, and Kenneth Kaushansky of Stony Brook Medicine, and Dr. Fredric Weinbaum of Southampton Hospital, who each spoke about their individual role in the creation and development of the center.



They were then encouraged by Chuck Scarborough to continue to support the hospital by purchasing tickets to the 58th Annual Summer Party that will take place on August 6th in Southampton.
