What do you do with the money that I donate?
That’s a great question!
In 2017, we took in $122,000, $29,500 of which was generated by fundraising events. The remainder was directly donated by generous and compassionate individuals like you, and included our adoption and redemption fees.
In 2017, we spent $79,300. Almost half of our spending, $52,600, was on veterinary care and medicine for our pups. It cost $9,200 to keep the lights on, the pups warm, and the shelter in good repair. We spent $10,400 on everything else required to run the shelter, including running our office, fire monitoring, educational materials for our RASE program, and legal and accounting fees. Because we had an amazing year, we were able to save funds for a rainy day.
We spent $0.00 on salaries!!
(And we’re pretty proud of that! That’s right – we scoop poop for fun!)
Every cent that gets donated goes directly to running the shelter and caring for our dogs!
We can’t forget to mention the amazing amount of donated food, treats, toys, blankets, laundry soap, cleaning supplies, and other wonderful things that all of our wonderful community members get for our furkids! We are extremely blessed to be supported by such a caring and generous community! We thank you for everything, and look forward to helping more animals in need!
