Since Jan 2004

Leadership Statement:

We built partnerships with surrounding city and county shelters and humane organizations, offering transportation services to and from the clinic. These organizations are the back bone of our program. Without them we could not succeed. Our partnering agencies are responsible for all aspects of their territory from advertising, promotions, funding and finding volunteers to perform check-in at their pick up sites. The partnering agency must have at least three volunteers available at check-in and discharge. For providing these services the partner agency receives a discounted price on rescue animals. A strong collaborative effort with these groups has helped us to continue to exceed our spay/neuter goals.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Kaufman County Animal Awareness Project (KCAAP) operates a sterilization clinic in Crandall Texas, just east of Dallas. As the only spay/neuter clinic in the region, we provide transport and spay/neuter services for pet owners in a 13-county area, serving more than 1.5 million residents. We strive to reach as many people as we can to significantly reduce the number of animals entering area shelters. Sadly, only 13 percent of animals entering area shelters find homes in our region: the rest are euthanized. This is a situation we are determined to change.   Our target audiences are the owned pets that are not getting sterilized because of their owner’s financial status or lack of transportation services to a low-cost clinic. Half of the area we serve is rural and poor; the other half is urban (East Dallas) and poor. As a result, most residents in these communities haven’t gotten the necessary spay/neuter surgeries for their dogs and cats because of financial considerations. More than 90% of the animals that come to our clinic have never been to a vet before and 60% of the females have had at least two litters of puppies. We provide additional financial assistance to those that can not afford these crucial surgeries at our already reduced rates. The Kaufman County Animal Awareness Project’s top priorities are:To build relationships and educate the citizens of Northeast Texas on how to become a truly “humane society”;To provide low-cost spay and neuter solutions to the general public; free to low income families;To educate the public about responsible pet ownership;To work with legislators on the creation of laws to protect it’s citizens and animals;To coordinate with the Texas Department of Health on rabies vaccinations and public health issues;To increase adoptions through the current city shelters and other humane organizations
