FRANKIE AND ANDYS PLACE INC

Helping Hands Healing Paws

Mission

The mission of Frankie and Andy’s Place is multi-dimensional. We are a senior dog sanctuary providing a loving, comfortable, forever home for 22 senior and hospice care dogs that have been cast aside in their final months or years by their families. We are also a ‘healing and helping’ center, dedicated to the power of the human-animal bond, where humans in need of help, companionship or solace come and spend time with these calm, loving dogs in our delightful woodland log cabins. Every week our trained therapy dog handlers also take the healing out into the community, visiting special needs classrooms, assisted living, memory care and daycare facilities for the handicapped.

Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Senior dogs are being discarded and left at shelters, often very old and informed, which makes them unwanted. Through our resources, we rescue selected dogs, provide the medical and emotional care that they need, and in turn, the dogs become therapy and community outreach dogs. With the help of our volunteers, the dogs visit the senior centers and adult care centers among other organizations and give back to the community with unconditional love and emotional support that they themselves receive. Dogs and humans helping each other is a wonderful thing.

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

To save dogs and help people in the community. To give those saved dogs a purpose in a loving environment and have them work with humans providing unconditional companionship and in doing so improving their lives too.

We partner with local common interest groups who we listen to their specific needs and not rely upon our own perceived understanding of what there needs may be.

We have a dedicated Board who have a history in animal rescue who are driven by their sharing of our aims and objectives without seeking any benefits from financial gain or personal agenda. Our Volunteers, who are fully committed to our vision, without whom there would not be a Frankie and Andy's Place, never cease to amaze us with their kindness and generosity and selfless contributions of in-kind and financial support.

Our first cabin is full so the short term objective has been accomplished however, our long term dream / vision is to establish a village of cabins and by doing so enabling us to save many more dogs on "death row". A second cabin was completed mid year 2018 that has allowed space for up to an additional 20 dogs to be saved and in turn, help others.

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • 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.
