About Pacific Assistance Dogs Society:
Founded in 1987, Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) breeds, raises, trains, and supports dogs to then partner them with people with disabilities and community care professionals.
Upon graduation, dogs perform one of three functions. Service Dogs help people with disabilities to perform daily activities such as opening and closing doors, switching lights on and off, and carrying groceries. Hearing Dogs alert their owners of sounds, including doorbells, telephones, and smoke alarms. Accredited Facility Dogs are provided to assist community care professionals in situations where dogs would provide physical, social, or emotional improvements to groups or individuals; specific goals with the dog’s involvement are outlined and progress along these goals are documented and evaluated.
Pacific Assistance Dogs Society is a Small charity with donations of $873k in F2017. F2016 donations include $1.5m from a trust, $1.0m of which was restricted by the charity for future expansion and capital projects. In F2017, the charity’s administrative costs were 8% of revenues and fundraising costs were 10% of donations. For every dollar donated to the charity, 82 cents go to the cause, falling within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Administrative and fundraising expenses may be understated as the charity did not disclose the breakdown of its salaries and wages, which Ci has included in program costs. Administrative and fundraising cost ratios are lower in F2016 because of the $1.5m donation.
PADS has $1.9m in funding reserves of which $50k are donor-endowed. Its funding reserves can cover 1.6 years of program costs.
