No. West Nomad is not a non-profit entity. We are a purpose-driven firm founded to help put an end to animal homelessness and abuse. West Nomad is different from many of the existing animal-rescue-focused entities. We opted to hire flight parents as well as other local employees to assist us full-time. This way we will be able to make a huge impact on the animal homelessness and abuse problem. We needed a way to pay our workers, which is the reason behind our business model. In the beginning, we did not know much about grant writing or requesting donations. We only followed successful brands that grew at a quicker pace and built a huge following. We thought we could adapt their style to pay our workers, and fund our animal rescues and sanctuaries around the world. We also speak against animal abuse.
West Nomad always looks for the most impactful regions in the world in which they can help. We have created a dedicated finance division designed to look for areas where we can truly make a difference.

A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that is secured by cryptography, which makes it nearly impossible to counterfeit or double-spend. Many cryptocurrencies are decentralized networks based on blockchain technology—a distributed ledger enforced by a disparate network of computers.
When Ethereum moves to proof of stake we will switch the miners to a different coin, which coin will depend on where things are at that point in time. If all coins eventually move to the proof of stake model and mining rigs become obsolete in the future then we will switch over to that model for mining.

Bruno Project is the project of finding foreign homes for homeless dogs from St Lucia.The Bruno Project is a cooperative effort between what started with only two volunteers after a chance meeting of a starving dog on the island of St Lucia in the Caribbean. Bruno was 39 lbs and dying slowly of hunger living by a restaurant just outside Castries. Vanessa was staying in a near by guest suite. The night before leaving St Lucia, Vanessa encountered Bruno, fed him her leftovers and bought him a second meal. She then came back to the guest house host, Doris, begging her to go feed Bruno daily and she would send her money to take care of the cost.A few weeks later, Don, Doris' husband brought Bruno to the vet. Turns out he was suffering from Tic Fever, mange, and a few other ailments that required medication twice daily. Putting him back out on the street would make it impossible to treat the poor boy, so Don brought him home and introduced him to their current pack of three dogs. The goal at this point was to get him healthy and ship him to Canada and have Vanessa find him a home.Due to a heat embargo preventing crates of dogs travelling on Canadian airlines, he would have to wait until November 1st. This got Doris and Vanessa talking about sending other smaller dogs that could travel in-cabin at that time of year. The first dog, named Lucia was shipped on May 16, 2016, thus the start of the Bruno Project. As of end August 2017 when this page was created, there was a total of 88 dogs in loving Canadian homes and 1 in England that were all sent through the Bruno Project.Bruno is currently 67 lbs and has become a permanent feature in Don and Doris' home. He is part of the family and he is not going anywhere.The St Lucian Potcake community has grown and is a tight community of families that love their dogs greatly. They form part of a facebook group and they attend reunions yearly.
