rescue. reunite. rehome. rethink.

The economy rises and falls like the tide, but keeping a tight budget is one challenge that never changes for a shelter. Even in the best of times, keeping an eye on your numbers will help to ensure that your organization is around to help animals for years to come.

  • The Costs of Animal Hoarding

    Taking on a major hoarding case can stretch a shelter’s staff and its budget. We offer tips about how to plan for the costs of such cases, and present them to supporters so they can help you defray the expenses.

  • A License to Succeed

    Calgary's mandatory licensing program for dogs and cats not only produces nearly enough revenue to cover the cost of providing animal services to a city of 1.1 million people, but also enjoys widespread buy-in from the public.

  • More Details, Please …

    Because the newly redesigned Form 990 requires nonprofits to provide significantly more information to the IRS, its completion requires more time and effort on the part of shelter administrators.

  • Feeling the Pinch

    With budgets falling victim to the "perfect storm" of the bad economy, animal shelter directors are scrambling to survive the fallout.

  • Green's Gonna Getcha

    Choosing an environmentally friendly route for your animal shelter can offer healthier, more natural, and more cost-effective means of operation, but with potential hurdles down the road, it's wise to look both ways before going green.
