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?

Rescue Relocation

Our cost to alter, provide initial vaccines, deworming, flea/heartworm preventative and microchip in the southeast is considerably lower. We treat for disease such as heartworm, and dogs with broken legs and hips received life saving operations. Our dogs are "adoption ready"
We began providing fully vetted adoptable dogs to our rescue partners, often without reimbursement because, our rescue partners are not able to pay transport fees to the Northeast and reimburse us for medical expenses.

We facilitated the rescue of hundreds through our network of rescue partners. We personally contact, interview and verify references for each partner we collaborate with today. Social media, such as Face book and pet adoption sites (Petfinder, Rescuegroups) market our adoptable dogs nationwide. Our dogs have been adopted coast to coast -- CA to CT. We hold monthly adoption events and the shelter is open for adoptions 5 days a week, or anytime by appointment.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

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.
