Approximately 7 million dogs and cats enter animal shelters every year. Countless others roam the streets, looking for shelter, safety and food. This leads to needless deaths by the millions. When spay and neuter is made affordable (or even free) more people will take the opportunity to get their animals altered. Many animals who come to the clinics for spay and neuter also get treated for illness and life-threatening illness or injury.  

Cold Noses funds vital projects for animals in need; whether it is a spay/neuter clinic in a mobile unit, a trap/neuter/release program for feral animals, veterinary care for the ill or critically needed supplies for a rescue to safely care for the animals.

Spay/Neuter & Medical Care

Cold Noses funds a yearly World Spay Day event every February to highlight the importance of spay and neuter and offer discounted or free surgeries. Cold Noses funds multiple spay/neuter projects throughout the year including trap/neuter/release for feral animals that are cared for in their communities and would not likely be able to be re-homed. Many of the projects provide medical care, both to help easily- addressed health issues or to provide life saving medical intervention.


So many rescue organizations provide support to hundreds or even thousands of animals a year. No matter their size, they all require up to date, reliable supplies in order to provide services safely and efficiently. With various requests for medical and other equipment for rescue groups, Cold Noses is able to help provide much needed funds to purchase life-saving equipment and basic supplies to keep animals as safe as possible.
