2023 Financial Report Wrap Up

We closed the books on 2023, and it was a ROUGH year.  Our UNEXPECTED medical expenses in the first quarter for nearly $60,000 hit our reserves badly.  For comparison purposes, our medical expenses for the first AND third quarters combined were less than $73,000. Much of that unexpected expense was for Katya and the survivor puppies (as detailed in the blog If Love Could Save Them).  We also have Masaka’s medical bills that will continue to hit us hard without an influx of donations.

We held the line on expenses, and recovered some of our safety net, while still managing to accept new dogs into our program. Our revenues were $199,202 from adoption fees, donations, and various fundraisers, which included over $4,000 from our gift wrapping services at Barton Creek in Austin before Christmas.

Our expenses were 235,286.63.  Most of that was from our medical expenses, which totaled $170,068.95. Boarding expenses (because we don’t have enough fosters) were $33,151.94Supplies (food and incidentals for fosters) were $13,464.13. Insurance costs were paid in the first quarter, totaling $3,040.96. Computer and software support costs (Texas Husky Rescue website, newsletter, etc) are $4,330.61. Shipping costs also take a bite…$1,850.05 to ship heartworm prevention and merchandise sales.

If you can, please donate today. If you can’t, please consider adding us to your will and leaving a legacy for the future, knowing your donation will be used supporting our rescue needs.

As a financially responsible rescue, we want complete transparency. After 14 years of Rescue, we have a responsibility to all the dogs we’ve placed in homes–we always accept our dogs back when circumstances change, and we must have a safety net for emergencies and contingencies.
