Charting impact

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

Reduce the intake of unwanted dogs & cats at the local shelter.
Provide spay & neuter services to all who request them, including those who need financial assistance.
Increase positive interaction of owners with their dogs, as well as provide exercise and social interaction for dogs.

Clinic to be open for business 4 days/week, and provide spay & neuter services for client's pets.
Dog Park to be open 6 days/week - free to the public for use with their dogs.

Clinic is staffed with a full-time vet along with multiple vet technicians, front desk support and a full-time administrative person.
The Board of Directors meet regularly and are primarily responsible for fundraising efforts and strategic development.
Technology is current and on-site support is done monthly, with ongoing backup and on-call support.

Clinic surgery levels have been maintained for the last 2 years at accepted levels.
Shelter statistics need to report a further reduction in intakes.
Financial support for the Dog Park needs to increase to a break even level over costs to run the Park.
Community involvement needs to increase further.
Volunteer support needs to increase further.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • 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.
