Conflict of Interest Policy
The awarding of Defenders’ business to any Officer, Director, or Employee or relatives of any Officer, Director, or Employee is strictly prohibited.
No member of the Board of Directors may be related to any other Board member. Given the wide variances in practices, policies, and procedures among animal groups, employees of Defenders of Animal Rights may not volunteer or work for any other animal-related charity.
Every year, each Board member signs a “Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form.”
- Donation envelopes for three years
- Payroll records, bank-related statements, and credit card receipts indefinitely
- Adoption records for up to eight years
- Invoices for eight to ten years as space permits
