Reviews for Actors & Others For Animals

Rating: 5 stars  

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!"

I would like to send a HUGE Thank You to a woman named BEVERLY.!. On July 9th, my son Messiah broke his leg while jumping over a baby gate to try and get into another room. As he landed, he landed wrong and broke his leg right past his wrist. I called everywhere trying to get help and or even a lead on where to go or call and only one person called me back and actually helped me and that was Beverly! Without her my son Messiah would have not got the surgery at the lowest cost possible! She knew exactly where to send me to get the best care at the best price. It may have been a ways away at the Ontario Spay and Neuter Hospital but I would drive anywhere to get his surgery done the right way. Also with Beverly's donation I would not have made my goal to get his surgery done on time! He got his surgery on July 19th at Ontario Spay and Neuter. Messiah and I thank you greatly for what you have done for us!

Dear Actors and Others,

My name is Riv, and I am an almost 14 year old domestic medium hair cat. I got really sick about 8 weeks ago, and could not pass my poo, and I lost almost 50% of my body weight. My mommy took me several times to my doctor, and other doctors too, but they just couldn't figure out what was happening.

I had surgery on 9/11 and we found out what the problem was. Somehow I found an artificial plant with Styrofoam berries and ate some of the material. Anyway, I was really backed up, and had a nasty constriction, so my doctor removed that and all the stuff that was in my small intestine.

Since mommy couldn't afford to pay for all of my surgery, she turned to Actors and Others to see if they could help. Thank you Actors and Others and Miss Beverly for helping to save my life.

If anyone else needs help, and they ask mommy who should they turn to, we will both tell them about you. You worked a miracle when no one else was able to help

With much love,

A very grateful Riv

PS: This is Riv's "mommy". I can't thank Actors and Others enough. Without the help and support that Beverly extended, this would have had a very different outcome. To Beverly and everyone associated with Actors and Others,a great big THANK YOU.

I have an 11 yr old chihuahua mix that has been no stranger to our veterinarian. He suffers from seizures and arthritis and is on medication regularly for this. A product of overbreeding, not by me, has caused his teeth to rot and he started growing warts as he's aged. Puss pockets in his teeth were causing pain and gingivitis. For unknown reasons he started chewing his warts and causing infections. I am on permanent disability and with his regular medical checks and my daily living I couldn't afford the surgery needed to care for him. Actors and Others pledged $250 toward my bill. They called me back in 24 hrs. This group legitimately cared for the wellbeing of my baby.

Our dog Cairo dislocated his knee cap and tore a ligament while chasing a ball. We were told by our vet that it would be more than $3,000 to operate and for follow-up. We contacted Actors and Others and were able to refer us to a specialist who not only knew more but was also much more reasonable with the fees. It ended up costing $1,600 with actors and others helping out with $400. I don't know what we would have done without Beverly at Actors and Others advising us with kindness and empathy. Cairo is now running around again, happy to be chasing balls.

My 6 year old dachshund 'Sparky' got attacked by a stray dog. He had his jaw broken and the surgery cost was too much for me. I sought out for help from many foundations and organizations but Actors and Others were the only one who really helped. Thanks to Actors and Others Sparky got his surgery done and is on his way to recuperation. Thank you so much!

Having rescued a cat my neighbor left behind, I notice that he has an eye infection. I tried to alleviate it by giving him antibiotics, but no results. I knew it was necessary to take him to the vet, but I just had taken my old cats with liver and kidney disease to have blood tests, so I was short of cash. Unfortunately, it could not wait. When we got to the vet, he needed to operate right away since the eye was in a bad condition, the eye socket was almost out and the eye was very infected. The surgery was expensive for me, even with the discounted price they gave me. I had some money but not enough. The cat also needed to be neuter, . That is why I called Actors and Others for some assistance. Not only they helped financially but they also gave me a piece of mind so I could be focus on what was important in that moment--the cat. Stripes came out with flying colors from the surgery; he still needed to be in antibiotics to fight the infection. It took three weeks for him to recuperate and although he lost one eye, he is getting used to see with one eye. Every night he looks for his cozy bed and curls up looking at me like saying Thank you! It is Actors and Others the ones that deserve a big Thank you. Their kindness, their assistance and their concern for Stripes made it so much easier for me. I am forever grateful for giving me a hand when I most needed. Stripes and I thank you one more time.
