I owe Actors & others a huge thank you , I didn't believe that they would actually reach out to help me but they did and when they did it was a miracle I felt as if god answered my prayers. I'm only 18 years old and my dog was on the urge of life and death. My options were either to put him to sleep or pay the bill. I was so stressed out because I couldn't afford the bill but I didn't have the heart to take his life away so I took a chance on Actors and Others . So thank you Actors and Others and to who who Donates because u truely are saving lives and helping us out so thank you so much it's very much appreciated.

Thank you for your help with our beloved Sheltie, Lancelot!

Extraordinary times take extraordinary angels!

Your organization and its angel donors are just such heroes.

Thank you for helping us with the surgery our beloved Shetland sheepdog, Lancelot, needed recently.

Lancelot is 8 years old. We’ve loved him since he came into our lives at 11 weeks old. My son is a single child of a single parent and Lancelot is his beloved pet.

We’ve never needed help with caring for our Lancelot until now. So we want to thank you so much for your gracious assistance.

Peace and Blessings,
Glenna and Matthew

My doggie Crickett got diabetes and pancreatitis, both recently, and Actors and Others came through to help on both counts. Their generosity lessened the burden on me being a senior, disabled and low income. The help saved the little fellow, who is happy right now at home!

As an organization that provides veterinary subsidies to senior citizens, low income families, ill or disabled individuals, and families that are experiencing financial hardship, Actors and Others for Animals assists thousands of individuals each year with their animal care needs. With a fundamental mission of ending the tragedy of pet overpopulation, A & O is stemming the tide of unwanted animals entering the California public shelters, thereby reducing euthanasia statistics dramatically. Founded more than three decades ago, the organization is at the forefront of legislation to protect animals of every breed and species.

Holly was fighting for her life in critical care with kidney damage, probably due to shock...
We found our cat Holly lying motionless in the yard. We heard dogs barking, but we did not see an attack. We do not know what happened, but the vet thinks the distress, and maybe a dog stepping on her when she froze sent her into shock, and she needed time for her kidneys to recover. She was on IV fluids and meds in critical condition. We rescued her fall of 2004, and she has been the sweetest most amazing cat ever. A total sweetheart, in the wrong place at the wrong time, and we felt terrible about it. We would not have been able to continue her care and treatment at the hospital without the help of Actors and Animals for Animals, because we were running out of funds. Their donation allowed Holly to stay at the hospital and receive the treatment she needed to save her life. Thank you so much for your help to save Holly!!!!

My name is Jonimae and Actors and Others for Animals helped me spayed and neutered both my dogs Jojo and Lulu. Without their help, it would take me a long time to get them neutered/spayed and I would probably have to give up my Jojo who I rescued from the street.
I am more at ease knowing that the two dogs will live a healthier life. The clinic that they sent me (pet doctors of industry) was an awesome clinic.

Thank you much.

my name is jamie stanton and i have a cat that is 9 years of age. she is very important to me and my family and she for the first time has gotten sick and i have not got the funds at all to help her. i then searched the internet and found actors and others and filled out the application. within not even an hour they called me and set me up a place to take my kitty and then payed for her visit and so much more and it is something that i never thought could happen. i am so grateful for them and all the people who have donated their time money and efforts to help the animals that need it and the people that own the pets. They are great people and i hope to help them out in the same way they helped me and my pet in the future. thank u actors and others

I am disabled and my service dog and I were working with children in orphanages in Mexico, when she fell off the bed and broke her leg, which apparently was quite serious and needed an operation. The operation needed to be done sooner then later or they could have to amputate the leg. We flew back to Los Angeles right away, where we met with my vet, who confirmed the seriousness of the injury. The vet recommended a specialist, who quoted $6000 for the operation. As with most people, money is an issue and I looked for someone less expensive but the average price was $4000. Finally a friend told me of a vet in Idaho, who was the best at this surgery but it was a 14 hour drive. Armed with determination, I drove the 14 hours and had a successful surgery for about $2000. It was then that I remembered Actors and Others for Animals from years ago when I witnessed a dog hit by a car and received financial aid from them. I went on line and shared my story and within 48 hours I received a personal telephone call from a representative who said to me, "Did you really drive 14 hours to a vet?" I replied, "Yes" as I was not able to afford the vet in Los Angeles. Amazed by my determination, Actors & Others for Animals came through again and helped with with the vet bill. I can't speak HIGHLY enough of this organization and what they do for those who are subject to such high vet prices only so that they can keep those that they love, our pets, alive.

I have to say that Actors in Other's surpassed my expectations than many when asking for help in a situation where I had almost given up. I contacted them on a Saturday after going to the Humane Society who surprisingly was very expensive for surgery and meds for my mom's dog Precious. . I received a call early Monday morning from Beverly who was so compassionate and understanding she quickly gave me another veterinarian for a second opinion & assured me their prices were very reasonable. Before I can even secure an appointment for the surgery Beverly had already got her very kind donors to provide me with $309 dollars for the surgery which was greatly appreciated by my entire family and precious siblings. Thank you actors & o from the bottom of our hearts♥♥♥♥♥! ( so sorry about resubmitting this, your website is a challenge on a mobile phone!)
