What do you do with the money that I donate?

That’s a great question!

In 2020, we took in $240,661, $18,385 of which was generated by fundraising events. A non-monetary donation of land is realized in that number.

Only $8,350 was received for adoptions, redemptions, and contract payments.

The remainder was directly donated by generous and compassionate individuals like yourself (an in some cases, matched by employers – thank you!) and we are grateful for your support. 

In 2020, we spent $109,015.

Almost two-thirds of our spending ($66,040) was for direct animal care. It cost $10,719 to keep the lights on, the pups warm, and the shelter in good repair. 

We spent $32,256 on everything else required to run the shelter, including running our office, installation of new security cameras at the shelter, educational materials for our RASE program, and advertising, legal, and accounting fees. 

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!
