Coalition Builder

Shelter Animals Count has added a tool that makes the data portal even more valuable for our participating shelters and rescues, as well as coalition leaders across the country.

The Coalition Builder is a newly-released tool for the National Database Project which makes tracking data and data trends across groups of participating shelters incredibly easy. The tool helps foster collaboration and provides for data tracking/reporting among shelters and rescues at local, regional and national levels.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Coalitions can be any size, represent any geographical area or be issue focused (like a breed-specific coalition of rescues).
  • Participation by shelters and rescues is entirely voluntary. Coalition leaders will extend an invitation – it’s up to shelters and rescues to decide which coalitions they’d like to join (and you can request membership in a coalition as well)
  • Once a coalition has been formed, the coalition leader or other assigned users can run downloadable, real-time data reports for the group as a whole or by member organization.
  • Funders can form a coalition within Shelter Animals Count and invite their grantees to participate, providing an opportunity to streamline data reporting.
