Mission

 The Animal Haven’s mission is to provide a temporary, safe, caring and humane refuge for homeless, adoptable cats and dogs, and to subsequently place these animals in quality, adoptive and permanent homes. We advocate responsible pet ownership, follow a mandatory spay-neuter policy, prohibit euthanization of our animals, and work in our community to fight animal cruelty through education. The Animal Haven enlists and promotes public involvement in the humane treatment of, and justice and compassion for all animals. Since 1948, The Animal Haven has celebrated the special friendship between people and their animal companions.

Background  In 1948, a group of animal lovers in Greater New Haven, Connecticut formed The Animal Haven, Inc., an animal shelter that temporarily houses orphaned cats and dogs until responsible, caring homes can be found for them. The shelter formally opened on December 27, 1957, at 89 Mill Rd. in North Haven, CT. In 2002, a new shelter was built that houses 19 dogs and over 100 cats.

 The Animal Haven takes in unwanted adoptable cats and dogs for a small donation. These pets get a complete health check, all vaccinations, and are sterilized. There are four paid kennel assistants to provide daily care for our needy friends.

The Animal Haven is self-supporting and receives no annual income from town or government sources. Funding comes entirely from membership dues, private contributions, entry and adoption donations, and many fundraising projects. Many homeless pets really need your help for a second chance of life at The Animal Haven, so please donate generously.

Impact
  •  In 2013, The Animal Haven entered 440 animals (315 cats and 125 dogs) from 30 Connecticut towns
  • In 2013, The Animal Haven placed 366 animals (248 cats and 118 dogs) in loving homes in 41 Connecticut towns.
  • The Animal Haven’s annual administrative costs are very low, only 3.2%.
  • Volunteers do the majority of administrative, financial and maintenance duties--answering over 13,000 telephone calls and emails requesting help and information.
  • Our 2,200 members reside in 81 Connecticut towns, and 100 members live out of state.
Needs
  1. To obtain additional funding for veterinary services for the cats and dogs at The Animal Haven. In 2010, our veterinary expenses were $104,000. We could help even more homeless animals with additional funding, and this year we seek an additional $15,000 for veterinary expenses.
  2. To obtain additional funding to assist in paying payroll expenses. In 2010, our payroll cost was $129,000. Taking in more animals increase payroll expenses, through either a larger staff or more paid overtime. We currently have three full-time employees and one part-time employee. We desperately need a fourth full-time employee. The Animal Haven seeks an additional $15,000 for payroll expenses that would enable us to have 3 full-time and 4 part-time employees.
  3. To obtain funding to hire a part-time dog trainer. Currently we have a Dog Training Club that is offered voluntarily by professional dog trainer Bob Greiner, of Bones Dog Training. This has been a very successful program, and in order to enable it to continue, we seek funding to pay Mr. Greiner for his professional services and valuable time. A dog trainer at our shelter one day per week will help new adoptees and adopters with their dog training issues. Additionally, Mr. Grenier would be able to help train our staff to train dogs and help with difficult dog issues. The Animal Haven seeks $9,000 annually to pay Mr. Greiner.
  4. A long term need of The Animal Haven is to have a veterinary clinic and veterinarian on site to provide medical care to our animals and to offer a low-cost spay and neuter clinic to service the needs of the Greater New Haven community. This is a long term goal with an estimated expense of $500,000 to build the clinic and annual budget of $500,000.
  5. To begin a formal Youth Volunteer Program headed by an experienced volunteer who will recruit youth volunteers and run a comprehensive animal welfare awareness education program in the community. To extend our educational programming, we seek $10,000 in the current year.

 

CEO Statement The Animal Haven has had the distinguished opportunity to serve the people and orphaned animals in the Greater New Haven, Connecticut community since 1948. The Animal Haven significantly impacts the homeless adoptable cat and dog population in the Greater New Haven community by entering in these pets, providing complete veterinary services, and finding these pets well-matched homes. Helping as many adoptable cats and dogs as possible is the most important goal of the organization.

 

Board Chair Statement

Successes:

My most successful accomplishment at The Animal Haven was when I decided to start the new kennel campaign to dramatically increase the number of pets The Animal Haven could support, and the quality of support they would receive. I researched what type of kennel we needed, chose state-of-the-art equipment, budgeted the cost, and worked day and night to raise the money to build it.  The Animal Haven's goal was to raise $100,000 each year for 3 years. Near the end of our first year of raising money, we were $30,000 short, and I was beginning to get discouraged. Then, I received a letter from a donor, who wished to remain anonymous, with a $30,000 check for the new kennel campaign and a request to meet me. I met this incredibly kind and generous person to show her the blueprints and talked about the new kennel campaign’s plan of action. At the end of our meeting, this person said she would set up a $100,000 challenge match so we could build the new shelter a year early. I was so happy that my dream and the dream of many, to have a new kennel would be a reality. The new kennel opened in December 2003. This is the most important accomplishment of my life both personally and professionally.

Challenges:

The major challenge The Animal Haven faces is continue to discover this kind of generosity from animal lovers like you, in order to secure the financial support necessary to meet our annual operating budget.  It pains the Board of Directors to need to say "no" to many worthy projects due to lack of funds.  And, it pains the whole organization to deny entry of a needy animal because the animal doesn’t meet our entry guidelines, or because we are at full capacity.  For so many of us, full-time jobs, family lives, and our significant voluntary commitments to The Animal Haven pose a challenging yet very rewarding balance. We tackle these challenges by focusing on our mission and values: which, simply, is to help beautiful but homeless adoptable dogs and cats.

Description

1.)   The Animal Haven is a private, no-kill shelter where members of the community may humanely relinquish adoptable orphaned cats and dogs for a small donation.  People from 30 Connecticut towns and cities entered 416 animals (160 dogs and 256 cats) in 2010  Major expenses incurred to enter a cat or dog include veterinary services and staff to enter and care for these pets 365 days a year. In 2010 the veterinary service costs were 104000 dollars and payroll expenses equaled 129000 dollars.

 

Long & Short Term Successes include entering thousands of homeless adoptable cats and dogs into a loving compassionate shelter for over the past 63 years; decreasing the number of animals euthanized by enabling the entry of more animals into the shelter from private homes; rescuing more adoptable cats and dogs from euthanasia by collaborating with municipal shelters and local animal organizations; decreasing the spread of diseases from animal to animal and animal to humans; decreasing pet overpopulation through the sterilization of more animals; and knowing that animals benefit human health and mental well being.

 

The Animal Haven monitors success by annually calculating the number of pets we enter into our shelter and the financial support we receive from the community. In 2010, The Animal Haven entered 416 animals and our total revenue was 265000 dollars.

 

Following is an example of one of the hundred emails we receive annually requesting help to enter an abandoned pet. (We were able to enter in the three cats.)

 

I know of a cat & 2 kittens (6 weeks old) that are in desperate need of adoption.  Their owner has been evicted from her apartment and they need placement by the end of this month.  At this time, they are living in the apartment by themselves. Just wondering if you could take them, or know of anywhere that would.  I have tried the Humane Societies in Newington and Meriden; there is no room at this time.

  • In 2010, adoption revenue was approximately 56000 dollars.
  • The staff spends 10% of their time doing adoptions. In 2010, the approximate staffing expenses were 130000 dollars.
  • Long Term Successes include the adoption of thousands of homeless adoptable cats and dogs into quality well-matched homes for the past 63years.

“Hi Liz!

 

So I couldn’t resist sending you a new family photo.  My furry kids are doing great.  Dezi is wonderful and I just can't picture my life without him!  He is such a good boy and a snuggle bug.  He and Harley are best pals and are inseparable.

 

I sure hope things are going well at the shelter and that those beautiful animals are still finding great homes.  I would love to bring Dezi in for a visit one of these days!

 

Hope all is well with you...just thinking about you guys and wanted to let you know that Dezi is spoiled rotten and VERY happy.  He needs a haircut...but is healthy and happy!

 

All the best,

Abby Seay 5-11-10”

Description

The Animal Haven’s Board of Directors establishes requirements for admittance to the shelter as a way to stay true to the shelter’s mission and save as many lives as possible through successful intake, care and adoption. Prior to entry:

·         Cats must have a recent negative feline leukemia and aids test.

·         Dogs must have a recent negative heartworm test.

·         Cats and dogs must pass a temperament test to confirm adoptability.

After entry, all animals are examined by a veterinarian and are sterilized and vaccinated before they can be adopted. In 2009, the total cost for veterinary services was 89000 dollars. This includes costs incurred through The Animal Haven Emergency Medical Fund and for entry of 99 additional pets, for the veterinary care for 120 cats and 18 dogs that were entered in previous years, and the purchase of veterinary products such as Frontline, Heartguard, Program, dog and cat distemper vaccinations, prescriptions and veterinary prescribed foods.

  • In 2009, total veterinarian service costs were 89000 dollars and payroll expenses were 129000 dollars.
  • Long Term Successes include the sterilization and vaccination of thousands of animals helping to address pet overpopulation and lowering the spread of deadly diseases carried by non-vaccinated pets.
  • Short Term Successes include offering the community a place to adopt a fully vetted animal for an average of 125 dollars each.
  • The Animal Haven monitors success by considering these preventative services as crucial:

§ to maintain a disease-free environment for the shelter’s existing residents, thereby increasing the potential of their adoption

§ to increase the number of homeless cats and dogs entered into the shelter, thereby decreasing the number of adoptable pets unnecessarily abandoned or euthanized each year

§ to more broadly address the animal overpopulation crisis and decrease the spread of deadly diseases in the community.

Description

The EMF funds vaccinations, sterilization, and other basic veterinary expenses for cats and dogs who enter The Animal Haven without a medical history. 100% of revenue is used solely for veterinarian expenses, in order to enter more adoptable homeless cats & dogs (including strays) into The Animal Haven. In 2010, the EMF allowed The Animal Haven to rescue 320 homeless pets (206 cats & 114 dogs), at a total cost of 47000 dollars in veterinary services (148 dollars average per pet). 77% of pets entered into The Animal Haven is through the EMF.

 

 

·         Long term successes include saving the lives of more than 1,264 cats and dogs over the last 8 years by using EMF resources to pay more than 176,815 dollars in veterinary bills.

·         Short-term successes include the accomplishments of the EMF by rescuing 258 homeless pets in 2009 (152 cats & 106 dogs), at a total cost of 31000 dollars in veterinary services (120 dollars average per pet).

Description

Volunteers are the foundation of The Animal Haven’s existence.  Annually, over 1,000 adult and youth volunteers come to The Animal Haven.  All financial, administrative and maintenance duties are carried out by volunteers.  Many volunteers walk the dogs on our peaceful walking path or play with the cats in the community cat room.  Some volunteers enjoy sending out handwritten thank-you notes to donors or working at one of our many fundraisers throughout the year.  A Volunteer Coordinator organizes and utilizes our large number of volunteers.  No other local animal welfare group has a community outpouring of volunteers as does The Animal Haven.

  • There are no expenses incurred by the volunteer program.
  • Long Term Successes include having hundreds of volunteers annually volunteer for The Animal Haven because they want to impact the lives of orphaned cats and dogs in the Greater New Haven community.
  • Short Term Successes include providing people an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of homeless adoptable cats and dogs by helping to care for the animals at the shelter, raise needed funds to run our organization, perform administrative duties, landscape our 7-acre property, and to participate in additional programs such as Sponsor-A-Pet , Cat & Kitten Foster and Dog Training.
  • Monitored by collecting volunteer applications and having the Volunteer Coordinator review new volunteer applications and direct them to the appropriate volunteer leaders. The Animal Haven promotes education and public awareness about the high number of homeless animals in our community, the problems associated with it and to allow people to take action by donating or volunteering to make our community a better place for people and pets to live.

CEO Comments

The major challenges faced by The Animal Haven include:

  1. meeting our budget - particularly staffing and veterinarian expenses
  2. a shortage of dedicated and repeat volunteers
  3. insufficient kennel space to house pets that are in need of housing
  4. quickly and completely combating animal diseases that our residents sometimes contract
  5. finding new and creative ways to place our less desirable animals (i.e. older pets or those who might have behavioral issues)

 

1.  The Animal Haven monitors monthly our three largest expenses which are payroll, veterinarian costs and utility costs to ensure that they are within budget and to insure our long-term sustainability.

2. We have a new Volunteer Coordinator for the Volunteer Program, and we are confident that this will result in a more organized program with trained and committed volunteers, expanding our base of support and  the great need for extra  helping hands.

1.  To free-up more valuable space in our facility we have initiated a Fostering Program for cats and kittens to free up shelter space by asking volunteers to temporarily care for cats and kittens in their private homes, especially during the peak of breeding season. 

2. In order to combat pet disease  we have instituted strict cleaning protocols that are reviewed annually and executed daily.  We educate our shelter staff on how pet diseases are transferable, and we engage in regular checks of all of our animals to identity disease early so that we are able to contain it.

1.  In order to help our hard-to-place animals, we have programs in place such as Sponsor-A-Pet, Dog Obedience Training classes, and Cat Socialization. We take part in numerous regular adoption events to spread the word about all of our pets up for adoption, and we feature our special-needs pets on local TV shows, newspaper articles, and fliers.

Experience I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Fairfield University with a major in Biology and a minor in Psychology. I have been a research scientist in the pharmaceutical industry for the last 25 years.

I started volunteering for The Animal Haven in 1995. In 1996, I was asked to serve on The Animal Haven’s Board of Directors. I served as the Vice President from 1997 to 2005. I was the chairperson of The Animal Haven’s New Kennel Campaign from 1998 to 2003 to raise enough funds to build a new and bigger shelter. The new shelter formally opened in 2003 and has enabled The Animal Haven to rescue many more homeless pets. To educate myself to be a leader of a nonprofit group, from 1997 to 2004 I took numerous classes focusing on various aspects of the nonprofit sector. I currently serve as the President and have been doing so since 2005.

Helping homeless adoptable cats and dogs to have a better life is a very important part of my life and I believe that my efforts, with the help of others, have significantly impacted the people and pets in the Greater New Haven community.

Collaborations
The Animal Haven rescues additional adoptable cats and dogs from euthanasia by collaborating with municipal shelters and local animal organizations.  Every day, municipal shelters euthanize adoptable cats and dogs due to lack of space. Local animal rescues often shelter animals in private homes.  Space and funding limits the number of animals they can house. Oftentimes rescue groups fold, thus the number of animals in need increases. Monies from this fund have significantly enhanced collaboration with town and private animal shelters. Animal Haven has the distinction of being a reliable facility that takes in local and out-of-state pets from shelters that are filled to capacity. To accomplish this task, it has joined forces with numerous animal rescue groups including: North Shore Animal League (NY), Saving Shelter Pets (GA), Compassion Club in Branford (CT), Greater New Haven Cat Project (CT), Help Willy’s Friends in Durham (CT), Meriden Humane Society (CT) and municipal shelters in North Haven, Hamden, Stratford, Killingworth, West Haven, East Haven, New Haven, Killingworth, Wallingford and Hartford (CT).

Comments
CEO Comments The financial challenges facing The Animal Haven are meeting budget (particularly when animals become sick requiring expensive emergency care) and the overtime pay incurred when this happens. Oftentimes, animals become ill at night or on weekends. This requires our staff to take the sick animal to a veterinary hospital that charges five to ten times the cost of a normal vet visit. Frequently, a sick animal needs additional tests which, again, can be very costly. The staff must accompany the animal during this time, which significantly increases overtime costs. This volatility makes it extremely challenging to function under a projected annual budget.

The Animal Haven operates literally on the generosity of our members in the community. Occasionally, we will have a very sick animal that needs surgery costing thousands of dollars. When this occurs, we start a “Precious” or “Tilly” fund, for example, and inform members that we are raising funds for a specific cause. The generous outpouring of donations from our members is heartwarming. We always receive the funds we need. Recently, a member wrote me a note saying “to call him anytime if you need anything to help the orphaned pets at The Animal Haven.” This act of kindness is extraordinary and reinforces my belief that there are many kind people in the world who sincerely want to help homeless animals have a better life.
