The Animal Protection Society – Friday Harbor (APS-FH) is pleased to announce a grant awarded by the San Juan Island Community Foundation (SJICF) Board of Directors 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 exciting purchase marks the APS-FH shelter’s transition from paper files to a digital data tracking system that will vastly improve our record-keeping and reporting capabilities; providing analytics to monitor and improve the quality of our services and care for the animals, as well as to better align the organization with additional funding opportunities. PetPoint software will also allow us to begin offering 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 our office computers so that we could implement a donor database. This recent gift from the Foundation puts our 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!
