Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Spay and neuter education will help prevent the overpopulation of unwanted dogs/cats in the state of Texas. Best Friends Society posted on their website that Texas euthanized more dogs and cats than any other state in the US in 2018. Unfortunately, Texas continues to be one of the leading states euthanizing dogs and cats. At A Doggie 4 You we are working hard to add more housing space for rescued dogs to find their forever homes and to help reduce the number of dogs euthanized each year in Texas. We are additionally focusing on reducing operational costs and/or increasing revenue given the current rise in inflation

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

1) to complete the multi-year modular buildings conversions project to provide indoor housing for 50 additional dogs--increases permanent, indoor housing for 200 dogs
2) to increase adoption numbers after the project listed above is completed through local adoptions and by transporting dogs to northern USA states with dog wait lists at no-kill shelters
3) to build and operate a spay and neuter surgical center for the rescued dogs and cats for Bandera County residents where a low-cost spay/neuter clinic does not currently exist

A Doggie 4 You is currently seeking public and private donations, conducting fundraising events, and requesting grants to assist with our multi-year facility build out project.
During this time we are also seeking transportation, spay/neuter, and emergency medical grants to enable the organization to keep our adoption rates up during the construction project phase.
We must first finish the build-out of our facility expansion for the Dog Compound before tackling building a low-cost spay and neuter clinic.

In-kind donations and public contributions along with foundation grants enabled our organization to purchase the modular buildings for the Dog Compound, prepare the building sites at the rescue, and to transport them to their permanent locations at the rescue. Fundraising efforts continue with the public and local businesses along with grant requests to foundations and corporations. We met and exceeded our first year goals with the buildings project and are now working hard to accomplish the remaining multi-year goals.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus affected our capital campaign to build out the Dog Compound. Donations and grants were lower than anticipated in 2020 as people lost jobs and grant funds were not as forthcoming as expected. Construction was halted several times due to COVID illnesses and lack of funds. Fundraising and large adoption events were cancelled due to the pandemic. We continue to have difficulties with retaining contractors and/or their help as well as staffing of our kennel techs. Grants and new and unique fundraising events have been successful . This is an area we continue to develop.

1. 2 modular buildings were purchased at auction
2. in kind donations from local businesses provided the road base for the new building sites, added concrete steps for all 24 kennels
3. in kind labor cleared and made the sites ready for the buildings
4. buildings were transported and placed onsite on February 18th, 2018
5. work to convert the outside of the buildings included pouring of large cement pads, adding 24 kennels onto the pads
6. fencing was added around the outdoor kennels attached to each of the 2 buildings
7. fencing around the alley ways and dog exercise/socialization area was completed
8. pavilion covers were installed over the kennels and dog exercise area
9. artificial turf was installed in the exercise play area between buildings 1 & 2
10. An electric grid was installed bringing electricity to Buildings 1 & 2, Grooming Building, Puppy Building, and the new Laundry/Bathroom/Shower Building.
11. Laundry Building was connected to septic.
12. Sidewalk poured to connect Buildings 1 & 2.
13. The former Storage Building was converted into a Puppy Building with 2 indoor whelping rooms and 4 Mom and Puppies Kennels. All rooms were fitted with Pet Doors to the outdoor kennels which are on cement and surrounded by chain link fencing.
14. 12 indoor cottages in Building 1 were completed while building 2 cottages are near completion.
15. A separate building for food storage has been completed
16. Received a large transit van (donated from another rescue).

Coming next:
1. Completing building 2 in 2023
2. Preparing for large fundraising event tied to the 2024 eclipse event.
3. Moving and renovating existing buildings to better proximity to the rest of the rescue
4. Continue to recruit kennel staff as well as future executive director

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

Patricia C Godkin

Pat started rescuing animals when she was a small child. She started off rescuing cats, horses and wildlife in Bandera County. She fostered occasionally while working for a Fortune 100 company. After leaving the company in 2002, she started volunteering with two local animal welfare organizations. She later decided to start turning her ranch into an animal shelter/refuge and decided to start her own non-profit. A Doggie 4 You was founded in 2007 and for the first 6 1/2 years was a fiscal sponsorship under two other non profits. In 2013, she was offered the opportunity to take over leadership of 10th Life Surgical Center. Since then, a team of volunteers have made a large community impact by forming liaisons and partnerships with county organizations to support animal welfare.
