?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program Description:

As the leading animal welfare organization in the Upper Midwest, the Animal Humane Society is committed to engaging and serving local communities of people and animals and providing comprehensive programs and services to compassionately serve all of the stages of an animal’s life. At our campuses in Buffalo, Coon Rapids, Golden Valley, St. Paul and Woodbury, our mission is to engage the hearts, hands and minds of the community to help animals. Our programs at our five campuses include the following: Adoption and surrender At our facilities we have cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils, chinchillas and ferrets available for adoption(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/adoption) . All animals in our care receive examinations, vaccinations and medical treatments, behavior assessments, microchipping and spaying or neutering for all cats, dogs, rabbits and ferrets prior to adoption. The Animal Humane Society believes in an open admission philosophy, which means we accept every animal regardless of health, age, breed or temperament that is surrendered to us(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/services/surrendering) . Open admission is essential to providing shelter and care to the thousands of animals that would otherwise have no safe refuge. We strive to be a resource for people when they need to surrender an animal—and to place no judgment on their need to surrender. There are no time limits that regulate how long adoptable animals are available at our Adoption Centers. As long as the animal remains in good health and temperament, it is available until it is adopted. (click here to view Adoption and Surrender statistics from our annual report)(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/node/1395#adoption) Outreach Our educational and outreach programs foster humane values and animal responsibility. Each year, we present programs at Twin Cities schools(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/services/schools) , offer summer camps for youth(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/unleashed) , community service projects(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/help/communityserviceprojects) and a youth pet club(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/petsetyouthclub) . Our Pet Therapy program(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/node/365) visits libraries, nursing homes, hospitals and community centers throughout the area. AHS’s mobile services veterinary unit assists breed rescue groups with spay/neuter surgeries at off-site locations. (click here to view Outreach statistics from our annual report)(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/node/1395#outreach) Rescue Our humane investigators(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/prevention/investigations) respond to thousands of reports of animal cruelty or neglect each year. In addition, we regularly work with partner organizations(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/aboutus/welfarepartners) throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin who ask for our assistance when their shelters are full. We receive, provide care for and rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/services/wildliferescue) at our Golden Valley location. (click here to view Rescue statistics from our annual report)(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/node/1395#rescue) Pet Services An important part of our work is pet training and socialization(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/node/3) .  Each week we provide nearly 40 dog training classes at our locations in Coon Rapids, Golden Valley and Woodbury and at the Now Boarding Pets facility near the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport. In addition, we provide a behavior helpline(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/training/helpline) , one-on-one training and socialization(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/training/dog) , dog play groups(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/training/dogplaygroups) , rabbit agility classes(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/training/rabbitagility) and pet loss support groups(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/services/lossofpet) . We offer competitively priced pet boarding at our Golden Valley location(http://www.animalhumanesociety.org/services/petboarding) or at Now Boarding,(http://www.nowboardingpets.com/) located near the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Bound for Home is Animal Humane Society’s multi-year initiative to improve the quality of life for more animals and to engage the community to help us. Our goal is to place all healthy and treatable animals in caring homes.  By implementing programs to reduce the number of animals being surrendered and to increase the number of animals being adopted, we have seen a reduction in euthanasia.   Program accomplishments as of June 30, 2011:  Some animals are adopted within hours of arriving at the shelter. Nearly 2,000 people are making appointments each month through the Animal Admissions Center. The Kindest Cut mobile surgical vehicle has had provided more than 2,500 affordable spay/neuter surgeries for pets of people in need.   A cat’s stay with us now averages only 8 days! The placement rate for animals has increased from 67% in 2010 to 81% in June 2011. We’ve seen a 41% reduction in the rate of euthanasia.

Evidence of Impact

There are no summaries available for this organization.

They are one of the first organizations to work from several locations. They are a pioneer in what I believe is a key direction of our industry, away from many separate local "humane societies" and towards consolidated, higher-impact, well run organizations. Nonprofit Senior Staff
