June 2012)

Ms. Marion Stanford

Term:

Since Jan 2010

Profile:

Marion Stanford has been a constant with Huts for Mutts from it's backyard rescue inception through it's steady growth as a multi-acre sanctuary offering the community financial assistance with spay/neuter.

Leadership Statement:

In the beginning we begged for veterinarians to join our project, to discount their services and help us "fix" companion pets in North Central Texas.  Most said no.  And then one clinic came on board, then another, then another and now six clinics in six counties and a mobile vet are at our disposal.  Each one discounts their price.  Our mobile vet is opening a brick & mortar low cost spay/neuter clinic in Sept 2012; centrally located and not just discounted but truly low cost services will encourage even more spays/neuters.

?

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?

Programs

Program: Spay/Neuter Outreach (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.
June 2012)

Budget:
$33,461
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General
Aging/Elderly/Senior Citizens
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Affordable and Free Spay/Neuter services are the answer to America's pet overpopulation problem.  Educating and encouraging citizens to be responsible pet parents is not enough in low income areas of North Central Texas the populace must have affordable services available.  We provide free services for qualified pet owners and have a working relationship with a mobile veterinarian offering low cost spay/neuter.  We do not compete with full service clinics--our target clientel are lower income and we focus solely on spay/neuter.

Program Long-Term Success:

Every animal sterilized at one of our events represents at the very least one litter of pups/kittens that will never be born.  Consider that mathmatical statistics suggest one fertile female can  be responsible for 64,000 offspring in a lifetime of breeding!

Program Short-Term Success:

Decreasing the number of unwanted companion animals whose very existance taxes community financial resources and brings into question the moral and ethical standards of our communities.

Program Success Monitored by:

Euthanasia numbers at local animal control facilities, the number of calls asking for assistance with unwanted companion animals, the number of roaming strays.

Program Success Examples:

The high demand for our services suggests our region recognizes the value of our spay/neuter program.  Our area of influence has expanded beyond or original counties: Hamilton, Coryell, and Mills.  Our services are now offered and publicized in Lampasas, Hood, and Erath counties and beyond.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Organized in 2003 Huts for Mutts has lowered the kills at the local shelter from 320 annually to 40 and influenced the decision for Hamilton Animal Control to work toward a no-kill goal in 2012.  For 4 years our grant-subsidized spay/neuter program has assisted with the sterilization of over 1000 companion animals in a service area that grew from our hometown (Hamilton) to include 6 neighboring counties.
