What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In the greater Houston area, there is a population of thousands of unwanted dogs. These dogs are surrendered to shelters and abandoned by owners. Because the number of unwanted dogs is so large, Golden Beginnings has chosen to target its efforts on the Golden Retriever breed. We are trying to reduce the number of abandoned, lost and displaced Golden Retrievers.

Charting impact

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

Golden Beginnings’ (“GBGRR”) goals are:
1) To make animal shelters aware that GBGRR is a resource for caring for and placing Golden Retrievers that may come into their facilities;
2) To make caring individuals in the community aware that GBGRR is a resource for caring for and placing Golden Retrievers that they find in difficult or dangerous circumstances, such as being abandoned and living on the streets or living in abusive or undesirable circumstances;
3) To make individuals in the community aware that adopting a rescued Golden Retriever is a worthwhile option versus purchasing a Golden Retriever from a breeder.

Golden Beginnings’ (“GBGRR”) strategies to achieve these goals are:
1) To develop personal relationships with shelter workers and veterinarians who encounter unwanted Golden Retrievers, so that they will consider GBGRR as a resource for the placement of these dogs;
2) To maintain an internet presence so that caring individuals in the community can locate GBGRR and recognize us a resource for the care and placement of dogs that they encounter;
3) To develop and maintain a social media and networking presence which recruits volunteers, encourages families to foster dogs and raises funds for treating the medical needs of the dogs that come to GBGRR and which lets potential adopters understand the joy of adopting and the dogs which are currently available.
4) To develop relationships with veterinarians to get quality, discounted medical care for our dogs.

Golden Beginnings’ (“GBGRR”) capabilities for accomplishing these goals are:
1) GBGRR has over twenty years of rescuing and placing Golden Retrievers in the greater Houston area. As a result, GBGRR has relationships with most of the shelters, and many other rescue groups and veterinarians in the area.
2) GBGRR has a robust internet and social media presence with almost 10,000 followers.
3) GBGRR has a cadre of dedicated volunteers and a network of foster homes already established.
4) GBGRR has a base of faithful financial supporters.
5) GBGRR has experienced leadership in key areas such as intake, transportation, foster coordination, veterinarian coordination and adoption coordination.
6) GBGRR has experienced and dedicated Board leadership.

GBGRR has rescued and placed over 4000 dogs since its founding in 1999. GBGRR has attracted and retained the volunteer base necessary to provide our services. GBGRR has attracted and retained the donor base necessary to financially support our 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.
