Pets In Need is in the search for its first Director of Development & Communications to partner with the CEO and Board to develop the strategy and grow capacity for proactive, increased and sustained contributed revenue. Please click to view the full position description or to nominate/apply.

For nearly 60 years, Pets In Need (PIN) has provided animals with loving care and lasting homes; partnered with communities striving to do the same; and advanced no-kill policies. This is accomplished by transferring cats, dogs and some other small animals from public shelters – where they are in danger of being euthanized due to space or financial limitations – to PIN facilities in Palo Alto and Redwood City. There they are given necessary medical care, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated by compassionate staff and volunteers working tirelessly to ensure that these prospective pets are healthy, safe and ready for their forever home. Additionally, Pets in Need is dedicated to expand and amplify its inclusive Access to Care model to keep animals in homes, with their loving families for life.

PIN has an annual operating budget of $6M, and in fiscal year 2022, received approximately $4.2M from contributed revenue ($1.7M individuals, corporations & foundations; $2.5M bequests). There is a $10M endowment. Pets In Need has a staff of 44 including a dynamic new CEO beginning March 2023. The organization has a very good reputation, and donors have shown a strong and sustained philanthropic commitment over the last several years. PIN is exceptionally well-positioned among donors interested in animal welfare organizations as it competes for major gift funding.

The search for the Director of Development & Communications (DoDC) is a result of PIN’s commitment to invest in resources that elevate leadership and increase capacity. As a member of the senior leadership team, the DoDC reports to the CEO and will have the resources to build a lean but scalable Development and Communications team. The DoDC will work closely with the CEO and Board on strategy and in their fundraising efforts and will bring expertise, best practices and inspiring leadership to PIN.
