Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation's (SASF) annual Paws in the Park will look a little different this year. While typically held at Red Creek Park in Hampton Bays, the 2020 iteration will be held virtual.

"Put your paws up for Paws in the Park: The Digital Edition! Join our Digital Dog Walk and Online Vendor Fair to support a great cause and win some amazing prizes," Katie McEntee, Director of Adoptions Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation, encouraged.

From Saturday, May 23 through Saturday, May 30, SASF supporters can take part in the Digital Dog Walk in the comfort of their own home/neighborhood and also peruse online through an exceptional selection of goods from nearly 20 vendors featured in the Online Vendor Fair.

"Create your team, join someone else's, donate today and get ready to walk!" McEntee said. Paws in the Park: The Digital Edition participants can track their miles via the Wooftrax-Walk for a Dog app, which is available at www.wooftrax.com. After you've set up an account, search for The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation by clicking "Animal Charity."

The person that registers the most team members will win a Cuddle Clone Gift Certificate valued at $249 (covers 1 plush cuddle clone), the individual that walks the most miles will be awarded a Family Membership to The Children's Museum of the East End, - and the person that raises the most money will win a trip to Atlantis in the Bahamas. The fabulous four days, three nights getaway is for four people and includes two JetBlue round trip tickets.

"Get your Paws in place because Paws in the Park is almost here! Check out how many amazing vendors we have!" McEntee noted.

The digital happening will feature items from Buddy Mercury, Cindy's Stampin' Up, Dog Eared Books Hampton, Empire Display Studios, Healing With Animals, Iconic Paw, Meow Mini Mart, Meowy Janes, Naomi's Designs, Neal's Yard Remedies Organic, Once Upon A Bow, Personalize Your Pet, Pittie Clothing Company, Sailors Beach Walks, Sew Hamptons, Sweet Pup Studios, The Art Nanny, and Touchstone Crystal. To get a sneak peek at the Online Vendor Fair, visit the Paws in the Park: The Digital Edition Facebook Group.

"We have some great vendors joining us this year! From London Jeweler's Cause for Paws jewelry to Internet sensation Buddy Mercury (the piano playing beagle) who will be selling his CDs to Meowy Jane offering organic cat toys! Ionic Paws Paintings, a company where you can get a painting of your pet and $20 goes back to our shelter pets!" McEntee relayed.

The Paws in the Park: The Digital Edition registration fee is $20. Anyone who raises $100 or more will receive a free T-Shirt.

All proceeds from Paws in the Park benefit the animals residing at the Shelter. The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, is committed to caring for the homeless animals in the East End community. In addition to providing a refuge for the local animals, SASF's reach can be felt nationwide, and even globally as they rescue dogs from "kill shelters" and extreme situations spanning from New York City to Georgia to Puerto Rico and even China. In 2018 alone, 805 animals found their forever homes while residing at the Shelter, 263 strays were reunited with their families, and over 300 pets were placed in foster homes.
