Programs

Program: New Facility (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
May 2012)

Budget:
$2,000,000
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Denton Animal Care and Adoption Center will be a combination of the facilities for City Animal Control and of the Adoption and Care Center. The entire facility will continue to be operated by the city of Denton and maintained by taxpayer dollars. Volunteers will staff the adoption and care areas. DASF will continue to provide fundraising support for adoption programs and adoption area needs. The animal habitats will be state-of-the art including outside dog play areas, cat screened porch, get-acquainted areas, enrichment areas, grooming facility and on-site veterinary clinic. Animal health will be paramount with up-to-date air filtration, drainage, isolation areas, and more. The location is attractive, visible and a family destination.  The new center will continue the requirement that all exiting animals be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. This requirement was implemented, using a bidding process with private vets, to address the long-term issue of pet over-population.

Program Long-Term Success:

Construction drawings and contract bidding can begin as soon as DASF has raised the $2.0 million campaign goal. A target date has been set to begin by January, 2012. Every year without the new facility can mean the loss of another 1,400 pets.

Program Short-Term Success:

The agreement with the city allows DASF to sell “naming opportunities” for adoption/care areas. To date, 20 of the 25 identified naming opportunities have been “reserved/sold.”   As of 12/31/10. $1.1 million has been raised in cash and pledges; and two major annual fundraisers are scheduled for March and November, 2011. Additionally, DASF  participated in the annual DonorBridge program on September 8, 2010 which provides matching funds for donor activity. This program is sponsored by Communities Foundation of Texas; and DASF is an approved recipient. DASF has prequalified for 25 foundations to submit grant requests in January 2011.

Program Success Monitored by:

Monthly financial reports reviewed by board of directors.

Program Success Examples:

As of December, 2010, $1,178,000 of the $2,000,000 goal has been met through donations and pledges.

All shelter animals are eligible. "Diamonds in the Ruff" - The program was initiated in September 2009 and initially underwritten by as DASF board member directly with the shelter.

In the event the dog is not adopted (which has not happened), a rescue group is standing by to take the dog. As of the 9/30/10 program year-end, 60 additional animals have been adopted (60 dogs). As of 9/30/10 programs year-end, 250 additional animals have been adopted as a results of these adoption programs since the inception of each program.

Program Description:

In 2010, a Feral Cat TNR (trap, neuter & release) program was initiated in partnership with the Denton State School (a home for mentally disabled).

As of the 9/30/10 program year-end, 47 cats were trapped & spay/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped and 10 kittens were trapped but released because they were too young for spay/neutering.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

DASF has a strategic goal to ultimately save 100% of adoptable pets handled in this facility. This requires a paradigm shift from “warehousing” animals to “rescue and adoption” which cannot be accomplished with the current facility. DASF has initiated several adoption programs, provided funding for facility upgrades and recruited volunteers to encourage adoptions and transfers to local rescue groups. As a result, the live exit rate increased to 70% in 2010, up from below 50%; however, better results cannot be achieved without a new facility designed specifically for “adoption and care.” The current capital campaign was planned to begin in 2008, but was delayed until late 2009 because of the local economy. The new Denton Animal Care and Adoption Center can save an additional 1,400 animals/year.
