Where the money goes

Where the money goes

In preparing for Giving Tuesday, this December 3rd, we want to be as transparent as possible!

Michelle Kamber, TDL foster and volunteer transporter is also our bookkeeper, not a job I can handle well!  She has downloaded all of our financials for this year up to September 13th, and has created these charts to share with you how we operate.  What we are very proud to share with you is that 100% of all donations to straight to the dogs.

Shown below is our revenue which is made up of adoption fees and donations.  45% of our revenue is generated from Donations, while 55% of our revenue is donated from our Adoption fees.

Next is our expenses, broken down into four categories.

25% spent on Operating costs, this includes internet, cell phone, office supplies, t-shirts, banners, websites, professional services, pens, paper… basically anything that the dogs don’t wear, eat, or use.

13% has been spent on Transportation, including of course, gas!

16% has been spent on Administrative costs.

45% has been spent on the Dogs.  This includes anything that goes into or on the dogs.  Veterinary fees, medicines, collars, leashes, micro-chips, food, flea and tick preventative, etc.
