What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Lake Tahoe Humane Society has been serving people and pets in the Lake Tahoe community for over 50 years. We are launching a campaign to build a significant financial base so that we can lead the charge for expanded animal welfare through low cost spay & neuter programs, charitable veterinarian funding, TNR, automation practices, community education programs the impact the next generation of animal advocates, and effective homeless animal prevention strategies. We are looking for large scale and community donors, collaborative partnerships, and volunteer support so that we can build our dream of saving and enhancing lives to ensure every pet in Lake Tahoe has a home.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

With a brand new board of directors in place, effective April 21, 2018, our primary goals are to stabilize the organization through fundraising, grants, and donations in order to restore valued animal welfare services in the community.

Effective April 21, 2018, we are in a cycle to stabilize the organization through:
1. Strategic planning
2. Reduction of operating expenditures
3. Driving awareness with strategic campaigns and media support.
3. Building the organization's financial base
4. Restoring and maintaining services in the Lake Tahoe community.

Upon re-building our financial base and coupled with strategic planning, new checks and balances, governance, and compliance strategies, we will be in a better position to restore the organization's full scale of service offerings. Please donate via: www.laketahoehumanesociety.org)

What we currently offer:

• Nourishment: We continue to offer a year round pet pantry to assist people who are experiencing financial difficulties, local seniors with low income scenarios, and for disaster relief.

• Education: We provide age-appropriate, activity-based lessons, designed to fit into a teacher's existing curriculum and aligned to common core standards. Presentations vary from 30-60 minutes, are geared toward individual classrooms and can occur on a one-time, weekly or monthly basis. Animal-related topics and environmental education are the focus for introducing humane and education concepts including kindness, compassion, character, respect, responsibility and integrity.

• Engagement: Pet assisted literacy practice is offered at the South Lake Tahoe Library. A trained canine listener, animal books and a tutor provided are free of charge. We also offer pet assisted visitation at the Barton Skilled Nursing Center takes place three times a week. Teams are evaluated periodically.

What we will offer in the future once we build our financial base.
• Prevention: We will re-institute our spay/neuter program that include low-cost access for the general public to reduce the number of animals that end-up shelters. This would include TNR (Trap, Neuter & Release).

• Treatment: We will re-introduce charitable medical services for families in need through partnerships with private veterinary practices.

• Placement: To find homes for animals, we partner with Lake Tahoe's Animal Control center, and drive awareness through our Facebook page, and other forms of Social Media. We would like to offer some adoption fairs when we are back on our feet financially.

* A new board of directors, effective April 21, 2018
* The beginnings of a strategic plan.
* An organizational release through our website, social media, and the local papers.
