Accountability

In the past, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region has collected and reported shelter statistics, including live release rate, in accordance with the Asilomar Accords. The guiding principles of the Asilomar Accords included statistical transparency and a uniform method for collecting and reporting shelter data. Recognizing that industry standards are changing, an improved method of collecting data has evolved out of the Accords matrix. HSPPR will now share the statistics in the data matrix required by the Pet Animal Care and Facilities Act (PACFA) for Colorado-licensed shelters and rescues.

In addition, HSPPR is reporting data to the Shelter Animals Count National Database, which provides shelter data on dogs and cats at the county level in the U.S. The purpose of Shelter Animals Count is to enable data-driven decisions to promote saving the lives of companion animals and preventing homelessness.

Donor Privacy Policy

The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) is able to pursue its mission of a compassionate society where animals are cared for and valued thanks to the generosity of donors. Because we are entrusted with the responsibility to be good stewards of the gifts we receive and to follow non-profit best practices, we adhere to a donor privacy policy. The guidelines listed below help HSPPR staff and volunteers understand how they may or may not use donor information.

HSPPR provides this Donor Privacy Policy to make you aware of our privacy policy, and to inform you of the way your information is used. We also provide you with the opportunity to remove your name from our mailing list, if you desire to do so.

HSPPR collects and uses personal information from donors that includes: name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and donor comments when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. In addition, HSPPR keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used in our development process to generate future mailing lists and analyze overall giving patterns in order to make accurate budget projections.

HSPPR will use your information to issue receipts, send thank you cards, internal analysis and record keeping, and inform donors about news, upcoming fundraising events and other activities. Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for other purposes. We use the comments you offer to provide you with information requested, and we take seriously each recommendation as to how we might improve communication. 

HSPPR will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to other organizations, to include donor’s name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. When publicly recognizing donors, we will ensure confidentiality—when requested by the donor.  

It is our desire to not send unwanted mail to our donors. Please contact us at (719) 302-8743 or email us at [email protected] if you wish to be removed from our mailing list.
