About Northwest Territories Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals:
Founded in 1988, the NWT SPCA is a volunteer-run organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all pets in the North. The charity’s programs include: public education and awareness, lobbying government for stronger animal protection legislation, offering various programs and services to the residents in the NWT such as animal rescue and protection initiatives, loans for spay/neuter operations, and adoptions and fostering of abandoned, abused and neglected animals. The charity also runs the Northern Dog Transfer Network, which transports dogs from the NWT to southern rescue organizations.
The charity opened its shelter in F2012 and has since taken in over 200 dogs and 20 cats. Since its founding, the charity has transferred over 400 dogs out of the NWT/Nunavut by partnering with 16 organizations in the NWT, Alberta, and British Columbia. The NWT SPCA continues its efforts to lobby the NWT government for stronger animal protection legislation.
The financial statements used in Ci’s analysis are unaudited. Fundraising costs are 6% of donations and administrative costs are 2% of revenue. The charity has funding reserves of $25k, which cover annual program costs 1.1 times. The decrease in funding reserves in F2012 is due to the purchase of land for the shelter, valued at $204k. Excluding its mortgage, the charity can cover its annual program costs 8.7 times.
The significant increase in revenue in F2012 is due to increased donations, grant funding and company sponsorship following the opening of the charity’s new shelter. The charity has reported no compensation costs in any of its fiscal years.
