Overview

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals–Angell Animal Medical Center is to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.

Background Statement

The MSPCA-Angell is a national and international leader in animal protection and veterinary medicine and provides direct hands-on care for thousands of animals each year. Founded in 1868, we are the second-oldest humane society in the United States. Our services include animal protection and adoption, advocacy, humane education, law enforcement, and world-class veterinary care.
The MSPCA-Angell is a private, nonprofit organization. We do not receive any government funding nor are we funded or operated by any national humane organization. The MSPCA-Angell relies solely on the support and contributions of individuals who care about animals.
 
All the programs, services, and activities of the MSPCA-Angell radiate from its central mission “to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.”  The miracle of the human-animal bond and its linked attribute of compassion have been rooted deeply in the hearts of all of our members, volunteers, staff, donors, and directors since the Society’s founding by George T. Angell in 1868.  Everyone, from our youngest volunteer to our oldest supporter, knows “it’s all about the animals”—and the people who care about them.  The MSPCA’s long history of service to communities in Massachusetts and across the globe has established the Society as an enduring oasis of kindness and care in an increasingly insensitive world.

The MSPCA has over 70,000 members, and offers kindness and care to many thousands of animals each year.  We operate three small animal care and adoption centers, a large-animal adoption center, and a world-class veterinary hospital (Angell Animal Medical Center).  We also advocate for animals in a variety of ways through our Animal Protection Division and serve the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts with Humane Law Enforcement.

CEO Statement

 

The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says a great deal in just a few words: we’re in Massachusetts, we’re a group of like-minded people, and we exist to prevent cruelty to animals. We love having “prevention” as our middle name. What we do for animals we d ocollectively– there’s not a single one of us who could do as much alone. We are local: we live and work here in the Commonwealth, with you. This organization belongs to all of us, and it relies on all of us to support it. Each one of us is responsible for supporting the animals that we love so much.

I could give you hundreds of examples of people whose connection to this organization has enabled them to do great things for animals: volunteers, who work tirelessly and often unseen, to clean cages, walk dogs, answer telephones, and help us get animal-friendly legislation passed; veterinarians, who enrich their considerable expertise every day by collaborating with their colleagues atAngell Animal Medical Center; adoption counselors, who offer compassion to those who must surrender their animals as well as advice to new pet owners; and donors, every single one of them…from the person on a restricted income who sends us $10 a year to the generous benefactors who enable us to build buildings and sponsor programs. And I don’t want to forget the people who thoughtfully provide for the future of animals by remembering us in their estate plans – that can mean so much!


Board Chair Statement

Every MSPCA program and department has appropriate assessment methods in place to monitor their progress and set goals for the future. Staff members in each of our programs and departments address any setback they meet in order to provide better protection and care for animals and better service to human clients. For example, when the financial crisis affecting the entire country began to cause large numbers of people to either abandon pets or bring them to our adoption centers, we addressed the need for further funding to care for this influx of animals both through our approach to the media and through such fundraising efforts as direct mail.Fundraising at the MSPCA-Angell, through the efforts of our Development department, includes donor cultivation, stewardship, and research; individual solicitation of major gifts and foundation grants; major fundraising events; direct mail; planned giving; and tribute giving. Since we receive no public funding whatsoever, we use the support of all our donors to inspire giving from others.  

I am honored to have been chosen for this position. The MSPCA-Angell has such a strong tradition of creating positive changes in the lives of animals and pet owners. I look forward to continuing to work with the other members of the Board, Overseers, and talented staff to build on our Board’s legacy of commitment and dedication to animals and our organization.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

 MSPCA programs and hospitals have received enthusiastic public acclaim ever since the Society began. We are a well-established, well-respected, and well-loved voice for humane concerns both in Massachusetts and throughout the world. Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston has frequently been the focus of media attention, and, in fact, all of our activities on the behalf of animals continue to be the subject of frequent, positive media coverage. Such fundraising activities as our annual Walk for the Animals and Animal Hall of Fame Dinner are also widely recognized by the media as significant community efforts. While there are many animal shelters and veterinarians in Massachusetts, no other organization provides a central point that radiates so many well-managed programs and services.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

 Angell Animal Medical Center is accredited by the AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association), but this was not in your list of evaluating bodies. The evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods, and pet healthcare management.   

No organizational licenses are required for the MSPCA-Angell.   All individual doctors and law enforcement officers have to have a state license. The organization has not received any awards, but individual members of the staff have received special recognition in many areas.

 A new Strategic Plan is in early stages of development.  The Board of Directors has designated a member to serve chair of an ad hoc committee to lead this effort. A Succession plan is in progress, but there is no written document at this point.

 We are affiliated with the Center for Laboratory Animal Welfare and the World Society for the Protection of Animals.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

 

2014 was an exciting year for the MSPCA–Angell, full
of many financial successes and exciting opportunities. Our fiscal stability – the preservation and enhancement of our various financial resources – permits us to sustain and expand the quality services and programs to support our mission.

Angell-Boston continued to see sustained growth with caseload reaching 61,595 and more than 16,000 new patients, both exceeding the results from 2014. Revenue was up $2.1 million over 2013. The hospital welcomed both a new MRI system and newly renovated space for I-131 therapy (for feline hyperthyroidism). The new MRI system scans patients in half the time as the previous version, thus reducing anesthesia time, increasing safety, and delivering even higher quality images that help our doctors detect smaller and more subtle lesions. New veterinary staff were added this year in critical care, medical and radiation, oncology, neurology and dentistry.

Angell-West opened its doors in February 2014, conveniently adding a new MetroWest location, providing 24x7 emergency care and a number of specialty services. Caseload reached 4,554 and more than 1,100 new patients were cared for during the ten month period. Revenues for 2014 were $2.4 million.
 
Our adoption centers continue to target efforts to address the number of cats and rabbits coming to us. Emphasis is placed on finding creative ways to find more homes for the significant numbers of these harder-to-adopt animals that we have in our care. These efforts have resulted in some wonderful successes. In 2014, three special adoption-promotion
events were held for adult cats, one specifically for seniors (nine years and older). An adoption promotion was also held for rabbits for the very first time last year. Through the collaborative efforts of our generous volunteers and targeted fundraising, 431 cats and 69 rabbits were adopted out from these events. All of these adoptions were fully subsidized by our generous donors. Social media, like Facebook, has also expanded our reach to greater numbers of potential “forever homes.” The overall adoption rate for 2014 was 86.5% , up from 81.2% in 2013.

Investment income and bequests provided $5.5 million of support during 2014. Contributions, including those for the Angell Centennial
Campaign and the Cape Campaign, reached $16 million in 2014 vs. $11.2 million in 2013. Both campaigns have made significant progress this year and the momentum is continuing in 2015.

We look forward to celebrating Angell’s 100th birthday in 2015. The generous support and loyalty of our donors and volunteers, inspires us every day to advance and enhance the services we provide to the
animals in our care. Our core values of Compassion, Integrity, Collaboration, Excellence, Service, and Positivity guide us in our mission.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
