NEW! Pop-Up Grants for Intake/Outcome Data

Shelter Animals Count announces a new Pop-Up Grant program to distribute grants and prizes throughout the year to our data contributors! When enter your complete, year-to-date data by the deadline each month, you’ll automatically qualify.

When will the grants/prizes be given away?
We may draw grant winners once a month, twice a month, or maybe not at all in a month's time, it's totally at random! We won't announce when a Pop-Up Grant is taking place, we'll simply announce the winner(s) based on those who met the qualifications at the time.

How does my organization qualify?
  1. Submit your organization’s complete, year-to-date data by the 6th of each month to qualify for the upcoming grant. For example, to qualify for a grant in April, you must have complete data for January, February and March entered by April 6. Tip: add this calendar reminder to ensure your data is entered by the deadline to keep your organization in the running!
  2. Make sure your "Organization Status" in your profile is "Confirmed". If it is not confirmed, we will need to send a confirmation email to the authorized user on your account. Email if you need to change the authorized user or if you need additional assistance.
Can I win multiple times?
Yes! As long as your intake/outcome data is complete and entered by the deadline, you could win again throughout the year.

Recent Updates

Coalition Managers
  • Visible Organizations: With the new database launch, you were no longer seeing any organizations who had not yet logged into the new database. This has been corrected, and you now can see them in the Data Status Table and access their data.
  • Data Exports: Filters have been added for the CSV Exports. You can now export organizations by state, county, and by month or year. NOTE: If you want to export all of Alabama, select "Alabama" from state drop down, and do not select any option from the county dropdown.
    • We will be adding more filters to these reports in addition to be able to select multiple states and multiple counties.

Custom Organization Data Dashboards
Your organization can now embed SAC-powered data dashboards on your website! We have two dashboard options available. Full details > NOTE: An update was pushed live this week on the dashboards to change "Net Intakes" to "Gross Intakes" and "Net Live Outcomes" to "Total Gross Outcomes", which includes transfers.
