What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We have identified multiple problems in the area of animal welfare. Pet animal overpopulation, abuse and neglect, and lack of access to veterinary care are areas we are addressing.

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?

Adoption

We find loving homes for nearly 2,000 homeless dogs, cats, and other animals every year. All dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens have received all vaccinations, they are microchipped, treated for fleas, dewormed, spayed or neutered, and temperament cleared.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We trap, sterilize, rabies vaccinate, and return stray and feral cats to their home territories. The program is targeted to have a significant effect by sterilizing 60-80% of the area cats. This level of sterilization will result in decreased homeless and feral cats as well as decreasing the number of cats entering our shelter and the level of euthanasia.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We are the only entity in Fayette County, Ohio responding to calls around the clock about domestic animal abuse, neglect, abandonment or injury. We enforce the humane laws of the state of Ohio, prosecuting when deemed necessary. We employ 3 certified Humane Officers who respond to calls and will work with the animal owner to help with the necessities of care of education on responsible animal guardianship.

Population(s) Served
Adults

For a small co-pay, we enter puppies and kittens into our adoption program and spay or neuter the parents.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We offer low cost spay and neuter for cats and dogs

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to ensure that all domestic animals are healthy and free of abuse and neglect, and that all pet animals are cared for.

1. Enforce Ohio's humane laws in Fayette and Ross Counties in Ohio, in order to protect domestic animals from abuse and neglect\n2. Provide educational programs for children and adults to promote responsible animal care and to emphasize the import role animals play in our lives. \n3. Address the pet animal overpopualtion problem by promoting spay and neuter. We offer programs to assist needy pet owners with the surgery and sterilize every animal that is adopted from our facility.\n4. Aggressive tackle stray and feral cat overpopulation through Operation Cat Snip, a high-impact initiative to sterilize a majority of the free-roaming cats in Washington Court House, Ohio.\n5. Find loving homes for hundreds of homeless dogs and cats each year.\n6. Offer assistance to needy pet owners with food, shelter, and basic medical care.

We have 13 experienced part-time employees who are dedicated to our vision. We aggressively reach out to the community through conventional and social media, tabling, literature, and educational programs. We have a facility that can house 50-75 animals (dogs, cats, and occasional "pocket pets" and birds), as well as our own surgical facility.

In the years since we have been incorporated, we have added multiple programs and made a significant difference in the lives of domestic animals in the Fayette County region. we are now helping people and animals in multiple counties in southern Ohio with spay/neuter, animal intake, and assistance with food. We continue to look for new ways to work toward our vision. Operation Cat snip is one of our new programs, and with it, we plan to significantly decrease the numbers of stray and feral cats in Washington Court House and to increase the quality of life of these cats.\n\nIn 2021, we will break ground on a new shelter building, which will offer enhanced programs for the animals and the people who care about them.

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.
