Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We have had a lowered adoption rate in the past year. The decreased rate we feel is a compounding of many issues that need addressing. We have a complicated application that contains barriers to adoption, COVID-19 restrictions barring easy access and availability of appointments, interview styles that put barriers up and decrease interactions and may appear adversarial to the adoption process, lack of trained adoption counselors, and restrictive office hours. There are steps we can take to improve the adoption rate.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

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

1) Increase the adoption rate by 25%.
2) Reduce time in custody to 30 days or less.
3) Decrease return rate that is due to poor matching of animal to adoptive person's lifestyle and expectations.

1. Reconfigure the application questions and remove questions that might be barriers to application acceptance.
2). Educate adoption counselors on using open-ended questions that permit the applicant to expand on their application responses.
3) Use more social media outlets to get pets noticed and track those responses.
4). Extend the hours of operation to make it more convenient for applicants to make appointments for meetings/adoptions.
5). Educate fosters on early and frequent marketing of their fostered animals.

Partners-4-Paws has a board that is genuinely committed to the goals we've outlined. Each has several years experience volunteering in shelters and working for or with other non profit agencies in the past. Each member brings a set of skills to the organization that helps bring about these methods we will use to meet the goals we've outlined.
Partners-4-Paws has gathered a following of volunteers who are willing and able to help get the word out and to work with various businesses in the area as well as other non profits who share a passion for animals.

Partners-4-Paws has only been in existence since April 29,2019, but to date has raised nearly $10,000.

Assisted 9 animals with testing, prevention, or treatment. These animals were rescued by individuals and we assisted with costs of testing, preventatives and treatment as needed. For 7 of these animals we also provided vaccinations, spay/neuter, and microchip insertion. Six of these animals have been adopted into loving homes. One is in foster care currently undergoing heartworm treatment.

Partners-4-Paws has also purchased the products needed for the shelter we are sponsoring, and now each dog is being tested, placed on preventatives, and if needed receiving treatment.
