The Stamford Animal Shelter Alliance (SASA) is a public/private partnership established by the City of Stamford to be the official fundraising arm for the Stamford Animal Control & Care Center (SACCC), Stamford’s municipal animal shelter.
SASA’s primary mission is to work with City officials, professional architects and the SACCC staff to design a beautiful new shelter and raise the necessary funds, augmenting that which the City of Stamford can allocate to build a new, state-of-the-art animal shelter.
SASA’s Board of Directors is comprised of senior-level City of Stamford officials and volunteer residents who care deeply about the care and welfare of all animals who find themselves housed in our shelter.
We have been working closely with a team of architects who specialize in the construction of animal shelters. The new shelter will incorporate state-of-the-art design features to benefit Stamford’s homeless animal population and make it a welcoming environment for people in Stamford and throughout Fairfield County who wish to adopt a new family member. For starters, the new design will:
greatly reduce the stress our sheltered animals experience with an improved kennel layout where dogs will not face each other;
include an additional room for cats to roam about outside of their cages
include a quarantine areas for cats and dogs
provide more natural light
include a welcoming entrance
include a getting-to-know-you room for prospective adopters to interact with the animals
include an education/community room to welcome groups and host public events
have a more attractive entrance and additional parking spaces
We will need significant financial support from the public to
raise the funds necessary to build this state-of-the-art shelter. Thank you for your support on Giving Day and we hope you will join our mailing list and contact us on how you can help us achieve our fundraising goals.
