Animal Humane receives no city, state or federal funding. Instead we are responsible for earning or raising 100% of our $5.6 million annual operating budget. We are fortunate to produce revenue from three streams that generate approximately one-third of our annual operating budget:
- Fees from Adoptions.
- Fees from services performed in our Donor-subsidized Veterinary Clinic for low-income pet owners.
- Revenue from our Thrift Shop, our three Animal Outfitter pet stores, and sales of donated motor vehicles.
The remaining portion of our annual budget is raised through private donations from individuals, as well as contributions made from businesses, foundations and donors including Animal Humane in their estates. Private donations have made it possible for Animal Humane to successfully meet the needs of homeless pets and pet owners for 50 years. Every contribution makes a difference and each is valued and judiciously used to operate the 20 programs that comprise our comprehensive Circle of Care.
Additionally, our devoted staff and Board of Directors expertly guide our organization. Our Chief Financial Officer, Sandy Phillips, holds a CPA, and our 17-member Board provides expert oversight for our business. Each month, our Board Finance Committee reviews our financials and provides guidance. Our committee consists of CPAs, Certified Financial Planners as well as a registered investment advisor and banking, legal and fundraising professionals. And, each year, our financial statements are audited by an independent CPA firm that gives us clean opinions.
