Charting impact

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

HHS has a goal to slow the unwanted pet population through education and spay/neutering. We are a no-kill shelter, and we service 550-630 animals every year.
We provide medical care for animals who have been injured while they are left on their own outside. We started a med room and would like to expand what we can do in-house to save on costs so we can put that money in other areas of care, like offering spay and neuters to the public and vaccination clinics. HHS also have a building fund started so we can eventually build a building that fits our needs and is energy efficient. Currently make an old sawmill fit the needs of HHS and it is lacking in many areas.

HHS is currently looking for grants to apply for programs that fit in with our mission. We partner with TNR and rescue kittens from feral moms, they are vaccinated and leave with free spay/neuter certificate. It is our belief that this helps with the unwanted cat population and keeps it from growing even larger in our area.
We add to our building fund every year, it is invested in the Northeast Community Foundation.
HHS partners with PetSmart for cat adoptions, the more animals we adopt the more we can bring in and help give them a second chance at a happy, healthy life.
We participate in Giving Tuesday, FB fundraisers, bottle drive year-round, we send a yearly newsletter, and we send a letter for donations, memorial donations and regular donors help us keep our program moving forward. We also run a store inside the shelter, it consists of consignments, new and donated items, upcycled furniture and cat and dog items, Re-Tails is an arm of our fundraising. COVID has changed the way we raise money, like most organizations it makes us think outside of the box.

Through fundraising and challenging work, we will be able to complete our goals including the longer-term goals.

We have a contract with IDEXX for medical equipment, we can do bloodwork and test cats and dogs for heartworm and disease. We can also send out blood and urine to IDEXX's lab for testing. We would like to add an analyzer for testing urine.
Re-tails is currently open and helps with providing funds for our mission.
HHS building fund is invested and we add to it when money allows. In the next year or so we will start a capital campaign to fundraise for the building.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
