As a federally registered 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, we receive most of our funding through private donations and grants, with some support from foundation grants and corporate sponsorship.
Some of the ways we use private donations are to fund scholarships for training animal control officers, animal welfare investigators and first responders across the country; to purchase equipment to stock our rescue truck BART so we are prepared to respond to any disaster; and to fuel BART so it can appear at conferences around the country to educate the public about animal disaster response. Like our training and rescue efforts, our administrative tasks are centered on Code 3’s mission to support animal-related law enforcement and emergency response. We pride ourselves on keeping administrative costs as low as possible, and on being good stewards of every contribution we receive.
If you’d like to direct your donation to training, you may tell us where you would like your dollars spent, and can be as specific as your own town to as broad as the entire country. Donations given to our Sponsor an Officer program will provide scholarships for animal control officers, animal crime investigators and emergency responders to attend much needed training.
Donations through this site are securely made through PayPal, using a PayPal account or credit card, and donations may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. We appreciate every contribution and strive to use it responsibly.
On behalf of the animals in need and the trained professionals and volunteers who serve them and their communities, we deeply appreciate your support of the work we do. We couldn’t do it without you.
