Qualifying Nonprofit Rejected For "Not Qualifying"

HELP! My charity has an approved Google nonprofits account and we applied for Google Ad Grants and received a notice that "your organization does not fall within our guidelines"


However as you can see, our charity is definitely qualified as it is visible in the IRS database as a 501(c3), listed in the proper guidestar database, and under the proper NTEE code. Our charity is an animal rescue center and a neighboring charity was approved which is how we found out about this. I know that being approved is completely up to Google's "discretion", however I am hoping that someone can investigate why I was told that we didn't meet the guidelines.

Charity EIN: 02-0442957
