    Impact Statement
    $1,519,754 total costs / 4,426 rescues = roughly $340 rescues one animal [2021 USD]
    Program Context
    The program rescues animals that would have otherwise been killed or left in some other bad condition. These animals are taken in and sheltered.
    Data Time Period
    1/1/22 to 12/31/22
    Benchmark for Scoring
    Impact scores of animal shelters are based on the average cost a household spends on lifesaving care for their pet. Programs operating at 75% of this cost or less receive a score of 100, while those below 125% receive 80. Nonprofits failing to meet these benchmarks earn a score of 65. The program shelters an animal for less than 75% of the cost of lifesaving care.
    Methodology
    This impact score was determined through the Animal Shelter methodology which is fully detailed in the Charity Navigator Guide to Ratings. Analysis conducted in 2024 by Charity Navigator using publicly available data, theory and evidence from scientific research studies, and public datasets.
