Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Atascosa Animal Allies is challenged daily by the area residents attitude toward the health and well-being of any animal. Of the 5,500 dogs and cats that we have rescued, less than 1% have been sterilized. This culture results in abusive situations when residents cannot afford proper veterinarian care. Animal neglect is very prevalent in our community and we deal with the repercussions of it every day.

Our programs

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

"Cat Cartel Trap -Neuter-Return"

The single greatest animal related need for our community is controlling the overpopulation of feral cats. Since 2018, we have performed TNR and vaccinated over 2000 cats in Pleasanton, Texas. This allows them to live better and healthier lives, breaking the birth-death cycle for kittens.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Ethnic and racial groups
Economically disadvantaged people

We rescue dogs from the Pleasanton, Texas Animal Shelter and have them sterilized, fully vaccinated and given medical preventatives, get them accepted to No-Kill shelters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington and Canada so that they are quickly adopted and live better lives.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Ethnic and racial groups

We rescue kittens and cats from the Pleasanton Animal Shelter, Atascosa County Animal Control and from individuals that live in Atascosa County. We rehabilitate them, have them sterilized and completely vetted and then adopt them out or send then to Stray Cat Adoptions of Texas, San Antonio Humane Society, SNIPSA and Austin Pets Alive!

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

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

1. The reduction of the community cat population by sterilizing feral and tame cats. Then getting them adopted, if they are friendly, or returning them to their colonies, if they are feral. We measure this by increasing our sterilization rate every year. We work with the City of Pleasanton to get 268 feral cats fixed annually.
2. Increase community awareness to improve the health and well-being of the animals by Involving more community organizations to partner with us. This is measured by the number of independent organizations that support our group in shelter workdays and fundraising.
3. Subsidizing low-cost or free spay/neuter clinics in our community to help underserved residents' get their pets fixed and vaccinated. Our goal in 2024 is to get 240 cats and dogs fixed for residents.
4. Transfer 200 dogs annually and 400+ cats to other no-kill rescues that are brick and mortar facilties. Their adoption rates are higher than ours.

Atascosa Animal Allies has a great working relationship with the City of Pleasanton and their Animal Shelter. We pull ALL dogs and cats from this shelter and have made it a no-kill shelter. We have created a network of relationships with other local, out-of-state and international animal rescue groups. We work with the most reputable rescue organizations. The local rescues we work with are: Texas Chihuahua Rescue, San Antonio Humane Society, Stray Cat Adoptions of Texas, SNIPSA. PAWS of Central Texas and Austin Pets Alive!. We transport dogs to rescue groups in Michigan, Washington and Canada. We work locally to rescue cats and dogs from the Atascosa County Animal Control facility in Jourdanton, Texas, a high-kill shelter.

Before Atascosa Animal Allies was formed, none of the animals brought into the Pleasanton Animal Control Facility got any medical or preventative care. Now, every animal is assessed, given preventatives, heart worm tested and vaccinated. We sterilize many of the dogs and all of the cats that are brought into the shelter or surrendered to us by residents. In 2018, we started a TNR program to sterilize as many feral cats as possible and residents are reaching out to us to help them trap cats on their property. Our website atascosaanimalallies.org is linked to over 150 rescue and adoption groups nationwide. Each animal, that is adoptable, is added to our website for adoption opportunities. Many dogs are transported to reputable rescues in other states. All of this is done in collaboration with the City of Pleasanton. Each of our members, including board and committee members, are involved in the rescue process. Whether it’s giving financially, transporting, fostering, doing fundraisers or adoption events, working on our website or networking to get dogs and cats adopted or transferred, we all do something.

Atascosa Animal Allies engages the community in our organization’s decision making by inviting community leaders to be a part of our group or at least attend some of our meetings to offer their opinions and input. We have weekly articles in our local newspaper, The Pleasanton Express, about the advances our group has brought to animal health and welfare. We have a foster program and continually advertise the need for foster providers for cats and dogs on social media. Each fall, we hold a “Putts for Paws” Golf Tournament to raise animal awareness and funds. We are always looking for more ways to get the community involved in what we do.

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.

President

Caron Tuttle

Caron Tuttle created Atascosa Animal Allies when she saw a need to save dogs and cats from the City of Pleasanton, Texas Animal Shelter. Many animals were not receiving veterinary care and were in very overcrowded conditions. Atascosa Animal Allies now makes sure all animals adopted or transferred receive the necessary care and spay/neuter surgery they deserve
