"SASF Mobile Clinic's goal for 2015 is to expand our outreach and collaborations with other rescue groups and shelters, so we may better serve and provide low cost services for shelter pets, feral (community) cat colonies, and responsible pet owners in our neighboring communities," expressed Patricia Gray, Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation
(SASF) Executive Director.
On Wednesday, February 4th, the SASF Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic took a road trip to the Brookhaven Animal Shelter to help lower the homeless pet population in the area by performing low cost spaying and neutering. The American Veterinary Medical Association notes that spaying and neutering an animal is one of the most efficient ways to reduce the number of homeless animals. This is SASF's second year with their Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic, which was made possible by a grant from the ASPCA
. The mobile van allows the organization to provide services including vaccinations, spaying and neutering to underserved communities across New York State.

Foundation has also teamed up with the Brookhaven Animal Shelter for their mission to save more dogs' lives through SASF's program creator, Aimee Sadler's Playing For Life Program. Brookhaven Animal Shelter staff and volunteers are collaborating with the SASF training staff by hosting playgroups for their immense dog population. Aimee Sadler's Playing For Life Program has saved the lives of countless canines across the country, who otherwise would have been euthanized.
