Exploring Non-Profit Partnerships

Over the past few days, at the advice of Christine from Ebullient French Bulldogs in Austin, I have been researching the guidelines of partnering with animal-friendly non-profits. Since there are so many organizations out there, it is imperative fully investigate potential partners before committing to a relationship.

I have identified 5 requirements of a non-profit organization in order to qualify for a partnership with AnimalWork:
  1. Vision & Mission: Organizations must be striving to ultimately make this world a safer and friendlier place for animals.
  2. Policies & Procedures: Must be geared at achieving the organization's goals.
  3. Approach: Must have a proactive and dynamic approach concerning animal issues and emerging concerns.
  4. Financial Efficiency: Must utilize resources in a most efficient manner and allocate funds among programs appropriately (Charity Navigator is a great place to research this.)
  5. Tax Requirements: Must have tax-exempt status under section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.
I will releasing a fully-detailed newsletter for non-profits interesting in partnering with shorty.

In the mean time...

If you know of any exemplary animal rights or rescue organizations that we should connect with, please let me know! Leave organization names as a comment to this post, or contact me directly at:
