Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

To put ourselves out of business. If we can effectively reduce the number of unwanted pets being born, then the county shelter and other human groups operating shelters and foster programs can manage the numbers without the need to euthanize.

Our philosophy is that money in the bank does not save lives. If we have the money, we will be aggressively issuing vouchers to fix animals.

We have committed members and dedicated volunteers working around the clock to reduce the number of unwanted animals being born in Monongalia County. The community is very supportive with their cash and non-cash gifts, the County Commissions and staff of the county shelter assist us when they can, and we have laid a solid foundation for this organization.

The County shelter maintains input and output numbers that are provided to M-SNAP each year. The number of animals dying at the shelter is the only indicator that we require and if they continue to decline, then we have been effective.

Since 1991, the average percent of animals who enter the county shelter that are eventually euthanized is 64%. In 2015, the average was 45%. However, the real challenge and true measure of success is when we can control the population of unwanted, homeless cats. In 2015, 89% of the animals that died at our county shelter were cats.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Diversity notes from the nonprofit
The only absolute requirement to be a member or volunteer of M-SNAP is the desire to end pet overpopulation by providing financial relief to pet owners who cannot afford to spay or neuter their pets.f
