Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation Event to Be Chaired

by Jean Shafiroff, Honorary Chair Georgina Bloomberg

Event will honor Jon Ledecky & Matt Meeker


The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation’s 14th Annual Unconditional Love Gala is returning to the Hamptons. The event will take place on Saturday, July 22nd, 2023, at The Muses in Southampton, NY. The grand soiree will be the highlight of this summer season out east. Chaired by Jean Shafiroff, the event honors Jon Ledecky, Co-owner, New York Islanders and Matt Meeker, co-founder and CEO, BARK.  The Honorary Chair will be Georgina Bloomberg.  The annual event has been the most important fundraiser for the shelter for over a decade.


The fun-filled gala will feature cocktails and a delicious, seated dinner, as well as dancing. In addition, a live and silent auction will help raise much-needed funds for the animals.



Proceeds from this event directly support the more than 5,000 animals who enter our doors each year. The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is supported exclusively by donations and grants from the community. From caring and finding homes for stray and abandoned animals to providing low-cost veterinary care and dog training so that animals can remain in their homes, the shelter has become a vital resource in our community.


The Foundation is grateful for the support of our sponsors for the 2023 Gala, including;

About the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF):  

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization 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 number of animals in need of our help is growing every day. The overpopulation of pets on Long Island is a major issue and sadly more amazing animals are ending up homeless. Whether caring for strays found wandering the streets, rescuing neglected and abandoned animals, or saving dogs from the horrors of the puppy mill industry, the shelter is a safe haven for all animals and for some, the last resort. Without SASF, these animals would not be able to survive. The shelter provides a steppingstone for animals to find loving homes. It offers them housing, food, medical treatment, training, and rehabilitation when necessary.
