Our team captured this precious elusive girl back on October 15, 2022.  She was in rough shape but we got her all of the veterinary care she needed, helped her gain weight, and now she is healthy, happy, and ready for her forever home or a new foster home.    Read more of her story.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act, signed into law in 2002, was designed to add new governance standards for the corporate sector to rebuild public trust in publicly held companies. While the majority of the act deals directly with for profit corporations, two standards in the act, document destruction and whistle-blower protection, cover non-profit corporations. The following policy covers our document destruction and retention policies. Whereas, our whistle-blower policy is written as a separate document. Mutts & Mayhem Emergency Search and Rescue (MMESAR) shall retain records for the period of their immediate or current use, unless longer retention is necessary for historical reference or to comply with contractual or legal requirements. Records and documents outlined in this policy include paper, electronic files (including e-mail) and voicemail records regardless of where the document is stored, including network servers, desktop or laptop computers and hand-held computers and other wireless devices with text messaging capabilities. An MMESAR volunteer, officer or director shall not knowingly destroy a document with the intent to obstruct or influence and “investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department agency of the United States….or in relation to or contemplation of such matter or case.” If an official investigation is underway or even suspected, document purging must stop in order to avoid criminal obstruction. In order to eliminate accidental or innocent destruction, MMESAR has the following document retention requirements:
7 years Permanently Permanently Permanently 10 Years Permanently Permanently Permanently Permanently Permanently 10 years 8 years 5 years 10 years Permanently 10 years 7 years 7 years after closure 3 years Permanently Permanently 7 years 7 years 7 years Permanently 7 years after term. 3 years Permanently Permanently 5 years from record 7 years
