FRIENDS OF THE ST JOSEPH ANIMAL SHELTER, INC. (FOTAS) HAS SUCCESSFULLY CATEGORIZED OUR INCOME AND EXPENSE INTO PROGRAM, FUNDRAISING AND MANAGEMENT/GENERAL. HOWEVER, DUE TO OUR SIZE AND THE BLENDING AMONG THE PROGRAMS NOTED IN OUR MISSION STATEMENT, WE HAVE NOT BROKEN DOWN FURTHER. THEREFORE THE NUMBERS REFLECTED ARE IN TOTAL VS. BY PROGRAM. FROM OUR PENNIES FOR PAWS K-12 SCHOOL PROGRAMS TO NEWSPAPER ARTICLES, SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS, AND MEDIA SPOTS, WE CONTINUE TO ASSIST IN THE EDUCATION OF THE PUBLIC ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SPAYING AND NEUTERING AS WELL AS THE HUMANE TREATMENT OF ANIMALS. THIS HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE REDUCTION IN THE NUMBER OF DOGS AND CATS GOING THRU THE SHELTER FROM 2514 AND 1689 RESPECTIVELY IN 2007 TO 1346 AND 1348 RESPECTIVELY IN 2018.

FOTAS PROVIDES FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO THE SHELTER AND INDIVIDUAL ADOPTERS FOR SPAYING/NEUTERING COSTS (INCLUDED IN VETERINARY FEES OF $71,196 FOR 2018). WE ALSO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE TO LOW INCOME AND SENIOR CITIZENS FOR MISCELLANEOUS ADOPTION EXPENSES ($19,665 FOR APPROX. 1584 INDIVIDUALS SERVED IN 2018). THIS ONGOING SUPPORT, WHICH HAS INCREASED OVER THE YEARS, HAS SERVED TO LOWER THE NUMBER OF DOGS EUTHANIZED FROM 1344 IN 2007 TO 82 IN 2018 AND CATS FROM 1399 IN 2007 TO 535 IN 2018. WE ARE A NO-KILL SHELTER AND THE NUMBERS EUTHANIZED ABOVE REPRESENT ANIMALS WHO WERE NOT ADOPTABLE IN OUR OPINION AS THEY WERE EITHER FERAL, AGGRESSIVE, TERMINALLY ILL, OR INJURED BEYOND REPAIR. DOGS WITH HEARTWORM, CATS WITH COCCIDIA, BROKEN LIMBS, OR MAJOR SURGERIES ARE ALL CONSIDERED ADOPTABLE AND THEREFORE FOTAS PAYS FOR ALL THEIR MEDICAL EXPENSES.
