What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our primary purpose is to support animals and the people who love them, be it through adoptions, low-cost veterinary services, education and assisting with all aspects of pet ownership.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Animal Shelter

Anderson Humane focuses on creating and supporting mutually beneficial relationships between people and animals. Current programs such as our Adoption Program, Military Veterans’ Program, and Healing Paws Pet Therapy Program create positive, impactful connections between people and animals, improving the lives of both. Future programs will be offered in partnership with human-service organizations throughout our community, maximizing impact and changing lives for the better.

Anderson Humane is a resource for pet owners, providing information and services to provide better care for their pets. Services such as our Low-Cost Vaccination, Dental, and Spay/Neuter Clinics offer affordable veterinary care options, preventing owners from having to give up their pets simply because they can’t afford care. On the horizon are additional programs to keep pets in homes, such as a pet food pantry, affordable pet training options, and temporary housing for pets when families are in crisis.

Charting impact

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

Anderson Humane has been saving lives and serving our community for more than 50 years. While we still honor our animal-saving mission of the past, we continually strive to meet the ever-changing need for respectful care and treatment of all animals in our community.

We are committed to offering programs that support our mission. Through our MVP program, we engage with veterans and offer special volunteer opportunities, support during deployments and resources to help them. Our Humane Education team teaches children in our community about how to safely interact with pets and how to be respectful of wild animals around us. Our veterinary staff offers low-cost veterinary services so people can keep their animals healthy. Our outreach team attends area festivals and shows to spread the word about the work we do. Our volunteer program gives people the opportunity to serve their community and to interact with animals.

We are uniquely qualified since we have been the leading animal welfare organization in our community for over 50 years. Our CEO has over 20 years of experience in animal welfare and most of our high-level staff have extensive experience in the animal welfare world.

We have formed partnerships with other animal-based organizations as well as human service organizations to strengthen our programs that support our community. For example, we have offered free boarding to victims of domestic violence as research shows most victims will not leave their abuser if they have a pet in the home. We have also found foster homes for the pets of military personnel who deploy. In addition, we recently merged with a local wildlife center that will enable us to work together to educate the public on the best way to live harmoniously with wildlife while protecting their health and safety.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
