Explanation of our Financial Expenses
ElderPet is a 501c3 non-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers. There are no paid employees.
General: As any organization, we have to pay general administrative and overhead fees which include insurance, registration and training fees for our instructors, office related costs, non-profit filing fees to the State of NH, insurance, and other items. These costs are termed general expenses.
