Finances

This chart shows a breakdown of our expenditures for the second half of 2018 at Leashes End.  Our operating budget has averaged between $4,000 – $6,000 per month, but spikes when we have a medical emergency.  The generous contributions of private benefactors finance our operations (89%).  We also receive some public donations (11%), which offset our expenses. 100% of all donations go to the care and feeding of our senior cats and dogs. Not one cent of our donations is spent on our staff. ​

We are an all-volunteer organization and our only payment comes in the form of ankle swirls, purrs, tail wags, and face licks.
