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 they accomplished so far and what's next?

Provide a safe environment for abused, neglected and abandoned donkeys. Implement science based wild burro management. Educate the public at large as to the historical contributions that donkeys have made on our country. Train donkey owners on proper care and handling of their donkeys.

Peaceful Valley communicates with the public at large using direct mail, social media, email, websites, live events and speaking engagements. Donkeys are often laughed at in our society so our first step is always to initiate a conversation by making our intentions known through the above listed vehicles.

Because of our reputation and hundreds of successful cases performed with law enforcement and government institutions, we will continue to be the country's leading equine rescue.

Peaceful Valley owns are main 172 acre facility in San Angelo, TX. This ranch is capable of handling 1500 donkeys at any one time. We also lease 100,000s of acres across Texas, Louisiana and Missouri for our sanctuary program.

We maintain two transport teams each able to carry 30 donkeys and able to respond to an emergency anywhere in the country with 48 hours.

The greatest indicator in animal rescue is when the rescue case request slow down. During the 2011 drought in Texas, we received 10 new cases per week. In 2016 is has slowed down to 1 per week.

Peaceful Valley has solved almost all of the major donkey related issues in this country. We are now turning our efforts toward the drought stricken Caribbean. We have begun our work with managing various wild donkey populations throughout the South West.

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).
