Halifax Humane Society prides itself on being a financially accountable organization while being responsible stewards of the gifts we receive. As an open-door shelter, we never turn away an animal in need. Because the need in our community is so great, we provide shelter, food, low-cost spay/neuter, and/or medical care for over 20,000 animals annually. If we spent a mere $100 on every animal we come in contact with each year, our expenses would exceed $2 million. As you can see, the financial burden is enormous.
Included on our website is a general overview of how funds were spent the previous two years as well as detailed financial information. Additional years financial records can be requested from the Development Department. HHS undergoes an independent audit each year and submits the IRS mandated Form 990. These detailed financial records can sometimes be confusing. If you have any questions regarding our financials, please feel free to contact Michael Ugarte, Chief Financial & Development Officer, 386-274-4703 x322 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HHS is proud of its efficiency in putting your donations toward helping animals in need. Charity Navigator, America's largest charity evaluator, ranks HHS as a Four-Star Charity, its highest award, based on financial efficiency, accountability, and transparency.
