Mission and Work

Mission

Raise funds for the City's municipal, open-admission animal shelter and its rescue partners in order to enhance or establish programs and services that benefit animals, and serve and educate the public.

Description

ANIMAL BEHAVIOR AND TRAINING. Friends continued to fund the shelter's Behavior and Training effort, which provides assessment, training, socialization, special treats and toys, and field trips for the shelter animals to improve their behavior, well-being and "adoptability". Friends funding in this area also provided consultants and training for the shelter volunteers in areas such as senior dog/cat care, shy dog/cat handling, puppy/kitten care, dog clicker games and cat handling. ANIMAL RESCUE PARTNER GRANTS. The shelter's success is partly due to its partnerships with other non-profit animal rescue organizations. Friends disbursed grants to 22 rescue partners serving a range of animals including cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, rodents, reptiles, amphibians and fish. These grants help offset the cost of training and medical care for the animals the rescue partners take from the shelter. VETERINARY SERVICES AND SUPPLIES. Friends continued to provide the Emergency Medical Fund for animals requiring extraordinary veterinary care. During the year, Friends paid for one emergency medical procedure. Friends also continued to underwrite the shelter's quarterly Low-Cost Rabies/Microchip Clinics, paying for the rabies vaccine and microchips, as well as for the outside (non-shelter) veterinarians and veterinary technicians who work at the clinics. Each clinic provided rabies vaccinations and sub-dermal microchip I.D.s for approximately 90 San Francisco dogs. OUTREACH AND FUNDRAISING. Friends continued to raise awareness and funds for the shelter by participating in community events and workplace activities (e.g., Google Give) throughout the year. Friends also creates and pays for monthly advertising in the local animal newspaper (Bay Woof). Friends underwrote, planned and organized the shelter's annual Pet Pride event, which attracted San Franciscans to the shelter for a full day of family-friendly activities and entertainment, including a pet costume contest, photo booth, pet toy-making booth, children's face-painting booth, pet goody bags, drawing for donated prizes and opportunities to meet adoptable shelter animals. HUMANE EDUCATION. Friends continued its Humane Education effort by providing after School Activities for elementary school students. In the After-School curriculum, elementary school students discussed different species of shelter animals available for adoption and made animal toys and habitats to bring to the shelter.

History

In July 2000, volunteer dog-walker Bill Hamilton, Jane Tobin, and a small group of volunteers founded Friends of SFACC to raise funds for vital programs that are not covered by the City budget, which provides basic care for the animals and pet-related services for humans. The San Francisco Department of Animal Care & Control competes for limited city revenues with approximately 75 other municipal agencies. SFACC does not include a development or marketing department so Friends of SFACC got to work. Building on an initial gift of $5,000, Friends has grown into a strong organization and continues to raise funds to support a number of critical programs.
