From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 2001:


A – Data is from a balance sheet, either sent to membership, on request, or available at <www.guide-star.org>.

B – Cetacean Society Intl. president Bill Rossiter is not paid. Rossiter donated $16,464 to CSI in fiscal 1999, and has donated $60,368 since 1995.

C РKitty Comfort Center, of Hamilton, Ohio, opened a no-kill cat shelter in 1995. The KCC assets had risen in value by $339,783 in the preceding fiscal year, as the KCC investment portfolio nearly doubled in worth, from $100,364 to $198,319. Total  KCC assets stood at $749,411. In 1996 the portfolio value nearly doubled again, to $405,012. Total KCC income rose in every year except 1999, but by 2000, the declared worth of the portfolio was down to $332,908, and KCC had a three-year loss of $191,696, for a net loss of assets of $190,125. In late 2000 KCC reportedly closed the shelter and put the building up for sale due to alleged inability to raise the cost of running it. KCC president Norma Lofland was paid $54,234 in 1999, receiving $240,455 over the five years in question. Treas-urer Noella Caparella drew $55,367; $241,588 from 1995 through 1999. This came to 51% of KCC expenses in 1999, and 43% from 1995 through 1999. KCC also claimed travel costs of $10,230 in 1999, very high for a shelter of its size, and $29,645 total, 1995-1999. Lofland and Caparella are two of the four KCC board members.
