Putting your giving to good use

Putting your giving to good use

April 29, 2020

In the long, steady struggle to improve the lives of animals, we—staff, volunteers, fosters, and you, our supporters—are all in this together. We are not, nor will we ever be, an organization behind closed doors. Our doors remain open, our practices public as we strive to be as transparent with our donors as possible.

We, along with 100 other charities, have been recognized for this transparency by being included on the 10th annual MoneySense 2020 Charity 100 List, receiving a score of 95.5/100. This list comprises Canada’s top charities, based on financial efficiency and transparency. We are honored to have been included, and thank MoneySense for their hard work in gathering so much data for Canada’s dedicated donors.

The team based their rankings on what they call a “transparency score”, which basically indicates how easy it is to find out about what a charity is spending and what they’re doing with the money. The more efficient a charity is with its donations, the better the transparency score. You can find out more about MoneySense’s methodology here.

Thank you, donors

We recognize the importance of those who choose our organization to give back to. Those who place their trust in us, our people, and our mission. We would not be able to do what we do without you. This is why we strive to not only be smart with our spending, but to remain as transparent as possible with those who choose to give. Our supporters should know where their money is going, and we are proud to tell them. From life-saving efforts inside the shelter and out, from community outreach during times of crisis, your support is improving the lives of animals.
