About Pacific Assistance Dogs Society:
Founded in 1982, Pacific Assistance Dogs Society's (PADS) breeds, raises and trains dogs. These dogs are used to aid handicapped individuals with a disability other than blindness.
Upon graduation, dogs perform one of three functions. Service Dogs help people with disabilities to perform daily activities such as opening and closing doors and picking up dropped items. Hearing Dogs alert their owners to a variety of sounds such as the sounding of a doorbell. Canine Assisted Intervention (CAI) Dogs assist with goal-directed interventions designed to promote improvement in physical, social, emotional and/or cognitive functioning or designed to improve cognitive functioning of the persons involved.
Currently, PADS is striving towards a graduation rate of over 50%. The most recent graduation year saw 16 teams and 3 breeding dogs graduate. The dogs who do not graduate are generally placed as Very Important Pets and are called VIP Dogs. These dogs are placed in a home where there is a child with a developmental or physical disability. Occasionally, some dogs are released to the general public.
The administrative costs were 9% of revenues and the fundraising costs were 7% of donations in F2015. The charity has $451k of funding reserves, enough to cover 56% of annual program costs.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by PADS. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
