...   Finance & Accountability


Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit a Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology due to only having 2 years of electronically-filed IRS Form 990 data.


To ensure year-to-year consistency the Encompass Rating System’s Finance & Accountability beacon analyzes the three-year average of some data provided through the IRS 990.
Charity Navigator currently only has 2 years of consecutive e-filed Forms 990 from the IRS for Cape Coral Animal Shelter Corporation under the EIN: 81-3632884.
Before Charity Navigator can evaluate this organization, Cape Coral Animal Shelter Corporation will need to e-file for additional fiscal years.

The IRS Form 990 is the source of the finance and accountability data used within the Encompass Rating System. When an organization is eligible for a Finance & Accountability beacon score, each metric is based on elements of the 990. Some metrics are based on the most recent available filing, while others are based on averages of values over multiple years. We provide links to all available 990s here, whether or not this organization is eligible for a Finance & Accountability score.

...   Impact & Results


Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

CCAS expects to see a community more knowledgeable about the importance of spaying and neutering, how to properly care for a pet, and the responsibility that lies with the pet owner when deciding to adopt. There needs to be a paradigm shift that pets are forever and CCAS can be the catalyst for change. By spreading these educational messages in a constructive and encouraging manner, CCAS expects to see an increase in pets being spayed/neutered, an increase in the number of pets being cared for properly, and more people being informed on how to be a responsible pet owner so they are able to keep their pet. CCAS fully supports the notion that pets are a commitment for the lifetime of the pet. CCAS expects to improve not only the well-being of Cape Coral’s pet population but it will serve its residents in an encouraging way. CCAS will help owners identify ways in which they may be able to keep their pets rather than having to surrender them.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

In addition to our brick and mortar building, we will take our message to the streets. By purchasing a mobile unit, CCAS will be able to support its mission by spreading our message throughout Southwest Florida and educating the public. The mobile unit will be seen all over Southwest Florida at schools, festivals, city events, parks and sporting events. Using the mobile unit, CCAS will deliver educational messages including: • Importance of spaying and neutering. • Trap -Neuter-Release (TNR) programs so that feral cats do not compound the problem of homelessness. • How to choose the right pet for your home/family. • Educate children on how to properly treat and respect wild and domestic animals. • Educate adults on the dangers of leaving pets in hot automobiles, and water safety near pools and canals. • Educate the community on the signs of dog-fighting and how to report suspicious activity. • Separate the facts from the myths regarding dog breeds. • The importance of vaccinations • Education regarding puppy mills, private breeders and shelters.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

Mayor Coviello of Cape Coral invited CCAS to participate in the U.S. Mayors’ Conference Better Cities for Pets Grants Program. The City, a variety of business leaders, and the community at large strongly supports the effort of having a no-kill animal shelter to serve approximately 180,000 residents. The Cape Coral Special Populations, which operates next door to the soon-to-be constructed shelter, independently held a fundraiser to benefit CCAS. Students from a local elementary school solicited funds for CCAS in front of a grocery store. CCCAS has over 3,000 Facebook followers that positively engage with us via social media, XX number of people receive our online monthly newsletter, and on average xx number of people attend our monthly meetings. CCAS has garnered generous financial and in-kind support to get the City’s very first animal shelter built. In just over two years, CCAS has raised an astonishing $1.6 million of a $2 million goal . We have a regular source of more than 255 supporters plus a very active group of approximately 75 volunteers. Our signature fundraisers – a golf tournament, a Decades Party and annual ball –are very successful ventures. CCAS has received overwhelming positive support for the City of Cape Coral to have its first no-kill animal shelter.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

Reducing pet euthanization is certainly a long and arduous task. Lee County Domestic Animal Services collects and reports data. As we see the numbers of euthanization drop at our local county animal control, we will know we are making progress.

Constituent Feedback

Constituent Feedback


Constituent Feedback and Listening Practice data are not available for this organization. Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to fill out the How We Listen section of their Candid profile. This data will provide the basis for the initial evaluation of Community & Culture.

Why It Matters


Like the Encompass Rating System, the Culture & Community Beacon is designed to evolve as relevant metrics are developed and ready for integration. Our partnership with Feedback Labs and Guidestar by Candid, and other partners including Fund for Shared Insight, GlobalGiving and Keystone Accountability, enables us to launch the first version of this beacon with Constituent Feedback information collected on Candid's site.


Feedback practices have been shown to support better Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion outcomes, an essential area of assessment that we intend to further expand and develop in the future. Feedback Labs has documented several studies which indicate that beyond achieving organizational goals, nonprofits that are attentive and responsive to concerns and ideas raised by beneficiaries establish stronger relationships with the people they serve, promote greater equity, and empower constituents in ways that can help to ensure better long-term outcomes. You can find resources to help nonprofits improve their feedback practices here.
