Target demographics: We cover all species except domestic cats and domestic dogs.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We help place more than 1000 animals each year. Some are abandoned, some are from failed roadside zoos, and others come from research laboratories, cruelty cases, and a variety of other sources.

The sanctuaries we work with directly benefit from mentoring in succession planning, disaster planning, board development, volunteer management, financial planning, responsible policies, and more, including animal care.

Mission:
Helping Sanctuaries Help Animals
Results:
Since late in 2008, we have directly helped place more than 3,875 animals in need of permanent sanctuary.

During that same time period GFAS has helped sanctuaries obtain $427,181 in funding from foundations and private donors. Some of this help was via informing sanctuaries of funding sources not previously explored and the sanctuary subsequently receiving a grant;or via GFAS giving out grants directly; or GFAS soliciting major donors on behalf of animals in need; or GFAS writing a grant on behalf of a coalition of sanctuaries.

GFAS has accredited or verified 45 sanctuaries, and we expect to nearly double that number before the end of 2011.

This year we put on a very successful two-day seminar entitled "Taking Your Sanctuary to the Next Level." We continue to offer free webinars on a variety of topics, including grant writing.

GFAS is a much needed organization in the sanctuary and animal welfare field as it provides a badly needed set of standards by which to judge sanctuaries and helps sanctuaries succeed. Sanctuaries in the US can be anything from a roadside zoo to a state of the art animal welfare facility and GFAS ... more »
