Paws In The Park




Many came out to Red Creek Park in Hampton Bays on Saturday, May 18, for a fun day with their furry friends. Sponsored by the Southampton Animal Shelter, this annual event is the shelter’s biggest fundraiser, explained Volunteer and Committee Outreach Coordinator, Jennifer Wojtas. “It helps us to promote the shelter and raise awareness of the work the shelter does.”

The canine companions were treated to agility courses and the ability to make new friends while their owners browsed vendor tables, participated in scavenger hunts, enjoyed face painting, listened to music, and grabbed an ice cream. Many people and their companions joined the shelter volunteers for a hike with their pups to help raise funds to support the shelter’s work with animals.
