Reviews for Actors & Others For Animals

Rating: 5 stars  

KIWI before actor's and others my little dog had been in unbarable pain due to bad gums. We never realized she was in such pain. She has keept this odor to her. We all assume it was do to her swilling her food whole and continually picking around her mouth. For about 2 years this went on. We figured the pain she did show at times come from her hip. When Kiwi was a puppy we rescued her from a puppy mill. She wasnt wanted and was going to be left on a street corner at 2months old. She during her time at the puppy mill was abused. Well we finally saw no matter what we did and bought kiwi to and in pain relief nothing worked. We found a low cost clinic and took her. At that time we were told kiwi need surgery to remove to real real bad teeth. At the time kiwi was a dog who shyed away from others, was very scared and would always be shaky. She would hide under the bed and never played with the other dogs. She never chewed her food swallowed her food whole. She had a small that no matter how many baths we would give her would take this small away. When we were informed of the cost of surgery we were devasted we didnt have $600 for the doctor. For one day and a half I stood searching for a program to help. I called every program I ran across every one wouldn't help because it was dental. Then I had filled out an application to Actor and Others. That same day they called and by the next day KIWI was going for her blood work and right the next day she went into surgery. Now Kiwi is a viberant dog full of life. She no lo get hides or shys away from people. She smells good looks happy pain free and we owe it all to Actors and Others and to the ones who donate to this life saving miracle making program. A big thanks from Kiwi to everyone at and everyone who helps Actors and Others stay in operation to help animals in need.

ANGELS.... Is only one of the good things I can say about this organization. My sweet 5 year old blue pit Isis had a very bad injured toe, and needed an amputation. We had been fighting this infection for months, I am currently off work due to a neck injury and had literally exhausted my savings trying to save her toe. Our original vet referred me to a clinic, that referred me to Actors and Others. The lady who I spoke with was so kind and compassionate. I was so upset and honestly was afraid I would have to put my girl down. I could not believe when I was told that they would take care of half of our vet bill for the procedure. I can't say enough about this wonderful organization, and the lady who runs it! Thanks to them my girl is back to her old spoiled happy self! I thank God for this place and the Angel who runs it!

It was a normal regular day as always I came home from school and was about to start eating dinner, when I was started hearing a lot of barking in my backyard. I then went outside to bring roxy back inside and into my room when I noticed she was no where to be found, I noticed a hole she had dug in the back door neighbors house. the neighbor quickly called me over and had appolgize and said my dog was attacked by her 3 big dogs. the pain and blood dripping I saw on roxys face was heart breaking. I rushed her to the vet and treated her well and as soon as they could. A couple days has passed by and roxy was starting to look like herself again, suffering with bruises and scratches some stitches and a broken rib. When I found out how much the vet was charging me I was out of money and needed the help, when I found out about Actors & Others for Animals by my vet, I quickly got the help I needed and I appreciate it all so very much. Best service ever, I TRUELY recommend it if you are in need of a helping hand. Thank you so much for the help!

I have been contributing to Actors & Others for Animals for many years, but have never needed to ask for their help for myself until recently. After getting my 2 year old cat's teeth cleaned, I was told she needed to have a bad tooth pulled. I was quoted two prices for this procedure: the lowest was $769 and the highest was $1,493. After I recovered from the shock of this, I started to think about where I could get another reference and quote. Thankfully, I thought to contact Actors & Others and was told about the Sharp Pet Hospital. I called and was immediately able to get an appointment. As it turned out, not only were those estimates way out of line, but my cat doesn't need any dental work at this time. I am very grateful to Actors & Others for Animals and the Sharp Pet Hospital.

My rescued cat, Ruby, needed all of her teeth removed Because the surgery is expensive, our vet's assistant told me about Actors and Others and suggested I contact them and submit an application for financial help. The lady I talked to, Beverly, explained how they determine eligibility, etc. and told me I would be hearing from them, one way or the other. As things turned out, They were able to help me not only with the cost of the surgery for Ruby, but also the cost to neuter a male kitten that I have rescued. Since I am on disability, this was the most wonderful thing! Thank you so much and thank all of you who donate to help me and other pet lovers who due to circumstances, cannot afford the cost of veterinary care.

I recently discovered a stray cat with a lump on its neck. After examination at Huntington Pet Vet, it was found the cat also had several decayed teeth. I had a dilemma – how to pay for these services. Because of my limited income, I was referred to Actors and Others for a possible donation. It was very difficult for me to ask for help – and I had trouble swallowing that false pride. I got on-line and filed an application. Within a very short time, I received a call from Beverly, who showed compassion and understanding as I “made my case”. When a list of charges was issued by the vet, Beverly agreed to a donation that allowed a balance that I could cover. I was overcome with gratitude. Because of Animals and Others, a beautiful creature continues to explore with renewed energy and without pain. Actors and Others has given this gift, and our neighbourhood thanks you, indeed.

Thank you so much for your much needed financial help for our dog Sammy. I'm a disabled. Senior and I'm also raising a grandaughter, the last of three that I've raised actually. Also taken in many animals and kept them all in till they grew old and died
I've worked very hard over the years in till I became disabled. By then all savings had been used up My grandaughter and I have to live on a very small income we also have two more dogs and two more cats all throwaways. Sammy was very ill and because of your most needed help. Sammy got the proper help from a good vet and l'm very thankfull for that Thank you again so much Also I 'd like to thank all those who so kindly donate funds to actors and others which make it possible for low income people like me to obtain proper much needed care for their beloved pets. -JC

Buddha the dog and I want to thank Actors and Others for Animals who very generously contributed to the cost of his surgery. Buddha was diagnosed with two very large tumors on his right rear leg. They were making walking more and more difficult for him and would shortly be inoperable. Now this dog is full of spirit and we all wanted his life to be long and fruitful. I didn't have the funds for such an operation so the Veterinary Hospital gave me the name of Beverly at Actors and Others. As it turned out the two tumors were actually one giant tumor that had grown throughout the leg. A difficult surgery to be sure. Buddha was in good hands, however, and his surgery put him back on all four legs and running. Beverly was a tremendous help during this entire situation and I will never forget her kindness. I could never have given Buddha this operation were it not for the contributions. I am very grateful for all those people who help others whose animal friends are in need.

Hello Everyone,
I would like to " Thank everyone" from Actors & Others from the bottom of heart and also for "Buddy." Without your assistance it would of not been possible for me to get the medical attention needed for my 12 1/2 year old German Shepard who's name is "Buddy." Again, thank you and also much thanks to the Doctor & Blanca at "All Pets Medical Clinic!"
