Charting impact

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

1. Keep pets in the home
2. Ensure pets are healthy
3. Assist owners with low-cost veterinary care
4. Adopt pets into excellent homes.

Public awareness and education programs, strict adoption guidelines and follow-ups with new owners. We utilize a foster-to-adopt program to help owners and new pets work out together.

We have been working on our goals for the past seven years, and we have better results each year. Owner surrenders are up and donations are down, we continue on to do the very best for the pets and our community

Silver Paws Program - places senior pets with senior citizens looking for companions. There is no cost based on income. We assist seniors with keeping their pets at home by providing food and low-cost or no-cost veterinary care.

Community Events - we participate in community events to educate the public on the importance of pet wellness care, heartworm prevention and spay and neuter.

Adoption Events - we hold many adoption events each year separate from our shelter adoption program.

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.
