While total cost recovery on an animal is not our goal, our goal is to have all animals in our care adopted into loving and safe homes. Revenues from the Thrift Shop, public donations, sponsorship, grants, merchandising and services delivered are those that fund our organization. While other parts of VRHS are revenue producing and the shelter expends funds, the fee levels have been set in a manner that helps keep VRHS a financially viable organization while increasing our adoption rate.
