Notes

"Animal-related services" include ID tags, trap rentals, and return-to-owner fees.

The intake and outflow numbers for the shelter and wildlife center do not add up to zero. This difference is accounted for by the animals that were already in our shelter or wildlife center on the first day of 1998 as well as animals that were received during 1998 but had not left our facilities by the final day of 1998.

The expense ratios of Advocacy, Companion Animal Services, and the Wildlife Center reflect the creation of full-time advocates in the two direct-care departments.

Complete audited financial statements are available for review in the PAWS Adminstration offices during regular business hours.
