Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

HEART of CVACF mainly focuses on strategies that will reduce local municipal animal shelter intakes by offering low cost and FREE spay/neuter services to the community pets that are serviced by the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility. Most unwanted pets that enter the shelter are intact animals. HEART is the major funding source for the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility Spay Shuttle, offering free and low cost spay/neuter surgeries. HEART of CVACF also supports medical care of sheltered animals in the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility. HEART provides vaccines, laboratory services and pays for special medical procedures for shelter animals that the City of Chula Vista budget cannot cover. HEART also supports 1 or 2 international cross-border Spay/Neuter campaigns each year, meant to educate our neighbors in Mexico about the importance of spay/neuter.

Charting impact

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

Our organization aims to lower the intakes of unwanted pets into our local shelter by providing spay/neuter services to reduce the number of unwanted pets in our community. HEART has provided spay/neuter services since 2012 and shelter intakes have dropped from 7,500 intakes/year to 5,000 over the last 7 years.

HEART would like to see the shelter find a home for every unwanted pet, and for all pets in our community to be spayed/neutered and receive basic veterinary care.

Our strategies are to expand our spay/neuter services to weekly or daily clinics, and to provide healthy pet vaccination services to the public.

Our organization is only limited by funding to accomplish our goals. The Chula Vista Animal Care Facility cannot afford to offer free spay/neuter services or low cost services at a loss, but HEART could fund weekly or daily spay/neuter services if we had the financial resources.
The Chula Vista Animal Care Facility has the staff available and the Spay Shuttle, but lacks funding to have it operate on a daily or even weekly basis.

HEART of CVACF through funding of the Spay Shuttle has been responsible for spay/neuter of 700 community pets/year since 2012. Shelter intakes have dropped over the same period from 7,500 to 5,000.
