Charting impact

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our community has a very unusually high shelter intake for pets in our community compared to other area shelters. We are hoping to bring the homeless pet population down to more supportable levels in our community, this effort is focused primarily towards cats.

Our organization aims to maximize its limited resources to reduce shelter intake with increased public spay/neutering , particularly with cats, assist in increasing our community's TNR efforts, and increase return to owner rates at our shelter with increased microchipping of pets, also targeted towards cats.

We have developed a network of allied groups seeking the same goal of reducing unintended pets in our community. While our group has limited financial resources, we maximize them by working with other groups and sharing each other's strengths. Our leadership team is very motived and has a number of years in the pet welfare field, we also strive to learn and understand the latest and more progressive methods to providing pet welfare assistance in our community.

Overall our local shelter has seen its intake drop from 7,898 in 2014 to 6,727 in 2015. While we cannot take credit for all of these drops, be believe our advocacy and work with other local organizations with a similar goal has been a huge benefit to reducing these numbers. The focus on cats with our network of allied groups has seen a somewhat dramatic drop in cat intake from 2014 to 2015. In 2014 1,582 cats and 2,239 were taken to the shelter and in 2015 those numbers dropped to 1,206 cats and 2,071 kittens.

We have been focused on working with cats and strive to improve on those successes. We hope to increase our capabilities to working with preventing unintended litters of puppies in our community.
