San Juan Island Community Foundation (SJICF) Board of Directors awarded a grant to the Animal Protection Society, Friday Harbor (APS-FH) to be used for the purchase and installation of PetPoint Data Management System – a new, updated software package specifically designed for animal shelters and rescue groups.
This purchase marks the APS-FH shelter’s transition from paper files to a digital data tracking system that will vastly improve the shelter's record-keeping and reporting capabilities; will provide analytics to monitor and improve the quality of their services and care for the animals, as well as to better align the organization with additional funding opportunities. With the PetPoint software, APS-FH will be able to offer pet microchipping services and a month of free pet insurance for those adopting a shelter cat or dog.
In 2018, the SJICF awarded APS-FH a grant for upgrading their office computers so they could implement a donor database. This recent gift from the Foundation puts the computers to even greater use.
APS-FH is deeply grateful to SJICF and its donor partners for supporting improved efficiency and effectiveness of APS-FH shelter operations.
