Kitty Angels, Inc.

EIN: 04-3270369


Kitty Angels, Inc. is a no-kill shelter dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned cats, furnishing them with treatment for injuries or other health problems, and placing them into life-long, loving homes with compatible owners. We take all necessary steps to ensure the well-being of our cats, including screening for infectious diseases, spaying and neutering, and providing rabies, distemper and other necessary vaccinations. As a general policy, Kitty Angels sets no limits on the amount of veterinary care which it will provide to a sick or injured cat to return it to a state of good health prior to placing it in a good home. We also believe in the importance of expanding the public's awareness for the need to neuter and vaccinate all pets. A

Kitty Angels

Kitty Angels is a community resource but is not connected with any town or government agency. Although some of our cats come from households which can no longer care for them, the majority of the cats in our care are the very neediest of animals, such as strays or feral (wild) cats, which are in urgent need of medical treatment. Kitty Angels is operated entirely by volunteers who care for the animals in the shelter facilities, do around-the-clock trapping and field work associated with the control of feral cat colonies throughout the area, and act as foster care givers for animals that are sick or otherwise in need of special care and attention. The past several years have been very busy ones for the shelter and our population of needy animals has continued to grow. We take in and place hundreds of cats each year and deal with many feral cat populations throughout eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Entirely through the efforts of its volunteers, Kitty Angels placed over 900 cats into life-long, loving homes last year. While a few of these animals came into the shelter and went out to homes with nothing more than neutering, vaccinations, leukemia and FIV ("feline AIDS") testing, and a veterinary exam, others received many hundreds of dollars of veterinary care. Some required extended rabies quarantine periods due to extensive wounds of unknown origin. Kitty Angels is 100% dependent upon adoption fees and the tax-deductible donations of individuals and organizations. For us to continue our work we are in constant need of good, life-long, loving homes and the financial support of generous and caring people.

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.
