Grant uses


The Cold Noses Foundation Inc. Grant program is for the purpose of helping organizations fund special projects relating to humane treatment of animals, finding homes and non-lethal alternatives to euthanasia, veterinary care for needy families or organizations, and humane education. Cold Noses Foundation will grant funds to any organization that qualifies that is enhancing the lives of homeless and neglected animals. CNF will only provide funding for programs that fall into one of the following categories: Domestic Pets, Wildlife, and Farm Animals.

The grant application window is based on your project location. You may be based in one geographic location but applying to help animals in another. The area in which the animals are located and the project is being held determines your geographic location (for example, you may be registered in Texas but only provide medical for animals in Mexico, so you should apply for Central and S. America quarter). Please view the Cold Noses Foundation site for more information.
