Our unique animal rescue specializes in nurturing animals that initially require complex care - a population that’s often underserved in larger shelters. Based in Peoria, Arizona, we provide a safe, loving, home-like environment for animals to heal and thrive. Under our care, each animal is given proper medical attention and safely socialized with people and other animals, so they’re ready to become part of your family.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our largest problem is not having a paid staff and the ability to fund veterinary needs. The inconsistency of volunteer availability and the financial drain on the Founder has caused the need for paid positions outside of the non-profit. This limits our ability to succeed and have the impact that we would like to have.

Charting impact

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

Together we will improve outcomes for animals and the people that love them by elevating their purpose with compassion and connection.

We have had a large impact for a small army. As an organization that is 100% volunteer, we look forward to the multiplication of change we can make from a paid staff. Our goal is to alleviate shelter capacity, create stress free environments for appropriate health, growth, and assessment of animals in need, and create innovative programs to meet the needs of the community by supporting the animals and the people that love them. We have a passion for human and animal connection, the inaudible language of energy that animals speak so well. Their ability to teach us this method of communication and love is the foundation of our programs. These programs include kids reading to animals, event's alongside the animals to bring awareness and education to our neighborhoods, and more. We have a food pantry to provide for those that are in need of food for their pets, cremation services for those grieving the loss of a pet without the means to memorialize them, training, and other resources to keep animals in homes. We are always looking to fill a need in the city that arises and have met those needs with programs that have had a great impact in our short 4 years.

Develop a strong Board Utilizing the services of a board development team.

Create staff positions and opportunities to fulfill the needs of management for our many programs in order to sustain the functions day to day of the non profit.

Utilize our unique property to bring about an unforgettable rescue experience for the animals and people alike.

Continue to join hands with other non profits and collaborate with our strengths and weaknesses for the greater good.

Creatively fundraise for longevity and creative stability without exhausting the grant pool that many non profits are using, and even be a source of funding for other small non profits that are struggling.

Continue to foster the human animal connection with unique programs and services and develop a strong business structure for growth and profitability.

Joining hands with the right donors and talented individuals will be the success of The Barn House. We have a wonderful facility, creative approaches, passion and persistence. The founder and Director of the organization was born and raised in the city that The Barn House Community serves and their family is passionate about pouring into Phoenix and the animal welfare space as a whole.

We impact an average of 2,000 animals a year. 2022 and 2023 led large endeavors for cat trapping and TNR having trapped approximately 1000 cats a year for each of those years. We have an average of 500 adoptions a year. We were the number one intake partner for Humane Society Phx in 2023 having taken over 220 animals from them that had been too long in shelter or needed care beyond the scope of their practice. We were the number four intake partner for Best Friends animal society in Kanab Utah for 2022-2023 and have taken over 200 animals from them that were struggling to get adopted. Our working cats program placed over 300 cats in farms barns and equestrian facilities that would have otherwise been euthanized or came from abused or neglected colonies. Our ringworm program took in and treated over 150 animals that would have faced euthanasia if they were not treated in 2023. We have had $50,000 in construction and development cost of our animal spaces among many media accomplishments. Our veterinary bills are between $5000-$10,000 a month on average depending on unexpected severity of the medical case. We have developed many relationships and connections with other organizations, mobile clinics, groomers, and more. Most of all we have had a large impact on the surrounding community with resources and services.

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.
