Keys to business plan development
Because of increased demand, the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society (SMVHS) will need to expand. To meet this need, we developed a comprehensive business plan and helped shape their capital campaign, ensuring financial sustainability. We projected out their financials through 2020, to ensure they remained cash flow positive after the expansion. The proposed animal care complex will double the current dog and cat capacity, provide an education center, a larger spay and neuter clinic, food bank, caretaker residence, maintenance storage facility, boarding facility and a columbarium. Exercise yards will be available for agility training and demonstrations and for emergency housing of pets in emergencies.
