Animals everywhere deserve compassion. You want to help all animals in need, regardless of geographic location; but how do you know your money is ever getting to the animals as you intend? How can you help animals and not just wonder if your money is going right back into an advertising campaign? Cold Noses Foundation solves just that dilemma. When you donate to Cold Noses, you're giving to an all-volunteer organization. We then grant the funds to rescuers who are saving the lives of animals here in the U.S as well as all over the world. Rescuers who you would have otherwise never have heard of simply because they do not have big advertising campaigns or marketing staff. But their work is vital none-the-less. If they are saving animal lives and improving the human-animal bond, then they are essential to our mission and to the harmony of this world in which we live with animals.
All organizations requesting funds have to undergo a rigorous grant process. If funds are granted, the process does not stop there. All funds (every penny) is are accounted for in follow-up reporting. In this way, we are able to help the rescuers doing life-saving work all over the world, who otherwise would have little access to funding. We generally focus on assisting rescues whose income is less than $200,000.00 per year. These are often hard working rescues who are either all-volunteer or mostly volunteer, run. They are the folks out in the field, doing the day to day, strenuous and oftentimes gut-wrenching jobs that are part of rescue.
