On Friday, July 8th and Saturday, July 9th, addō, Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF), and Vinkara Vineyards will be teaming up to help shelter dogs find their new forever homes as the trio hosts back-to-back fun evenings full of cute pets, great shopping, and tastes of vino.
"First off, we at addō love all creatures! We encourage our community to adopt pets that need loving homes," said Jesse Elliott. "The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation's mission to save and care for animals that would otherwise be homeless, or in a kill shelters is close to our hearts at addō." The partnership was a natural fit, as SASF and addō have similar missions. "Part of our philosophy at the collective is bringing people together," added Elliott. It is a natural fit for us to host an event that helps connect animals with 'forever homes.'"
The pre-party for SASF's 7th annual Unconditional Love Dinner Dance will take place at addō from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Hosted by addō and Stella Flame, the event will showcase the fine jewelry collection's summer line, which will be for sale during the soiree. A percentage of the Stella Flame Jewelry purchases will be donated to the Southampton Animal Shelter to aid the Foundation's mission of finding homes for animals in need.
"Join us for an early evening of fun shopping, incredible jewelry, great wine and adoptable pets," said Kate McEntee, Director of Marketing Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. "Thank you to addo and Stella Flame for hosting this kick-off party for SASF."

The 7th annual Unconditional Love Dinner Dance will take place on Saturday, July 16th.
Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) was formed in 2010 by a concerned group of citizens who stepped in when the Town of Southampton was looking to close the shelter due to budget cuts. The non-profit organization's mission is to provide for the welfare of animals and reduce the number of homeless pets via low-cost wellness clinics and spay/neuter services at the shelter and through a mobile clinic.
Addō is located at 7 Main Street in Sag Harbor. For more information about SASF, call 631-728-7387 or visit www.southamptonanimalshelter.com.
