American Cold Nose Patriots
A registered 501 c3 charity
Dog heroes like Lassie and The Littlest Hobo have long tugged on American heartstrings. Never was there a situation, no matter how tricky, that these smart dogs couldn’t find a way out. Of course, those dogs were simply well-trained actors.
Military Working Dogs, however, are real, honest-to-goodness heroes. These dogs are used in combat zones to sniff out IED’s and other bombs, to patrol and scout areas, to apprehend enemies and most of all, to save lives. America's enemies know how truly effective our Military K9’s are. These dogs are priority targets. In fact, the bounty placed on a Military Working Dog is double that of a soldier’s.
There is simply no technology on earth today that compares to a dog’s nose. The United States government has tried to replicate it and failed—to the tune of 19 billion dollars. The manufactured attempts were deemed 50 percent effective, whereas a Military K9 has an 80 percent success rate. These dogs can smell .025 gram of explosive, making it nearly impossible for them to miss a hidden IED.
These dogs save lives. Period.
Military Working Dogs need our help. In order for them to work effectively, they require similar gear as their human counterparts: items like tactile and cooling vests, Kevlar booties to protect their feet from glass and sharp stone, and doggles—goggles specifically made for a dog’s head.
American Cold Nose Patriots uses donations to purchase these essential items.
“Why isn’t the government supplying Military K9’s with what they need?”
We hear that question a lot. The truth of the matter is that there is often too much red tape and too little left in the budget to do so. American Cold Nose Patriots has cultivated a grassroots community through social media and charity events, building public awareness. Together we work to inform, educate and spread the word about Military K9’s and to acquire and transport highly critical gear to our cold nose patriots. None of this is possible without the generous support of donors like you.
