Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

Animal Birth Control (ABC)

The Animal Birth Control program focuses on reducing the number of unwanted puppies and kittens surrendered to the Shelter each year. The program provides vouchers for no-cost spay or neuter surgery, which are distributed through the Shelter as well as by city and county animal-control officers.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The Heartworm Help program boosts the chance of adoption for dogs with heartworm by giving adopters a choice to either have the dog treated at the Animal Service Center at no cost or take the dog to a partner veterinarian, where ASF pays a portion of the treatment costs directly, reducing the cost of treatment to the adopter. The program ensures every homeless, heartworm-positive dog gets a second chance.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Our Vet Visit program identifies animals in need and secures veterinary treatment, often at a reduced cost, from local veterinarians and veterinary medical vendors. The assistance ASF provides through the Vet Visit program gets shelter pets healthy and ready for adoption into a forever home.

Economically disadvantaged people

ASF developed its Doggie Manners Classes to help keep adopted dogs in their homes by offering all adoptive families a low-cost basic dog training class. The eight-week class helps teach the basic doggie manners needed to help keep shelter pups - and their owners - living happily together in their new homes. Compassion in the Classroom The Compassion in the Classroom program is a humane education seminar delivered to teachers. The program content is targeted to primarily elementary school levels, and Leon County educators receive continuing education credit. However, all teachers from any school district are welcome, and encouraged to attend. The goal of the seminar is to give teachers the tools they need to incorporate humane education into their curriculum throughout the school year in order to subtly educate their students of the value of compassionate treatment of all living beings.

Population(s) Served
Adults

ASF partners with the Shelter each year to provide low-cost vaccinations and micro-chipping assistance, which reduces the number of pets relinquished to the Shelter for financial reasons, and increases the chances that a lost pet can be returned to its home quickly and safely.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

ASF's Enrichment Program provides Kongs, toys, and other long lasting treats to keep the dogs busy while kenneled. We also provide leashes and collars for dog walking and treats and treat bags used for training. The cats are provided scratch pads and ping pong balls and other fun enrichment toys to keep them busy during their stay.

Population(s) Served

The Animal Shelter Foundation is excited to provide this program to help the endless cycle of breeding community cats. This special service is only for strays (friendly, homeless cats with no owner) or feral (free-roaming cats which you are unable to pet or handle) and want to help prevent further litters. The Spay/Neuter will include a rabies vaccine and ear tip at no cost to the Good Samaritan helping the cat. Loaner traps are also available (if you do not have one), for a small refundable deposit. Surgeries will be done at Tally Spay, our low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic.

Population(s) Served

When the shelter is over capacity, ASF partners with Tallahassee Animal Services to help fund transfers to other shelter and rescues on the United States and Florida who have room for additional dogs. This program helps open space at the shelter and reduces unnecessary euthanasia for time or space.

Population(s) Served

Tally Spay accepts dogs and cats from Tallahassee and surrounding areas, by appointment, for same-day, low-cost spay and neuter surgeries. The aim of Tally Spay is to perform a high volume of sterilization surgeries to reduce the number of intakes at the animal shelter and reduce the number of unwanted animals in the community. Tally Spay is part of ASF and is a non-profit organization subsidized through low-cost surgery fees, specific grants, and the generosity of our donors.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

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.
