Carolina Poodle Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue and sanctuary that re-homes more than 600 dogs each year. Established in 2008, the organization now employees 20 full-time employees, including caregivers, a groomer, and administrative staff.
To handle their rapid growth, the Carolina Poodle Rescue managers were looking for a more effective way to generate employee schedules and manage leave requests. Before deploying Humanity, the team used Excel to make their schedules, which was extremely time-consuming. According to the Office Manager Melinda Johnson Peeler, it took them between two and four hours to create a weekly schedule.
Staff members would notify the scheduling manager about their time off requests, but there wasn’t any system in place to field the requests while keeping track of them via Excel was extremely challenging.

Humanity’s 30-day free trial was more than enough for Peeler to recognize that the platform would be a good fit for her organization. What she loves most about the platform is that it’s a full-featured solution for staff management. Between the scheduling and the time and attendance management that Humanity provides, making the switch from Excel to Humanity easily saves Carolina Poodle Rescue teams up to 10 hours a week.
“Our employees have downloaded the app and they enjoy being able to clock in and out right from their phones,” Peeler said. They are also enabled to effortlessly submit vacation requests for manager approval. In case of scheduling conflicts, managers can easily find replacements, change the schedule, and send out an updated version—a process that used to take hours before Humanity. With Time Clock reports, supervisors can quickly export accurate timesheets for payroll.
