I am an Animal Control warden in Dixon, Il and personally know that this wonderful group has assisted numerous families with food, vet assistance and keeping their pets safe either with the families or with families willing to care for their Pets. They are consistantly working on helping families and pets and have assisted me with relocating pets from where I work(90 milesfrom Streator) that fell on hard times and were unable to keep or care for their Pets. Keep up the Wonderful work Karen!!! Barry DeBoor LCAC Warden, Dixon, Il.

I have been a part of this organization for a few years now by volunteering my time in rescuing fostering and the transportation of animals and I find it to be one of the best that I have ever come across this is why I choose for the love of pets.

Have personally donated to this charity and I love the work they do. Specially when they helped a homeless men and his female pitt travel to FL & then to California for a better life, they both needed help so bad.

And recently a family that lost it all including their pets (pets had to be temporarily foster somewhere else) a minor tried to commit suicide when she couldn't see her pets and they stepped in and helped the family with expenses to reunited them all.
Or a poor baby whose neck was almost cut off due to a hunter's trap and family couldn't afford the treatment.
I could go on and on with plenty of cases. I've seen them change lives and that's what counts. They are awesome organization. Please continue the great work and supporting this great organization.

Love
Anna

This nonprofit assisted from another state to save a life of a dog that had been shot in the face by a police officer. Without them, he wouldn't of been able to get care and most likely would have suffered longer or died. Thank you for being awesome!!!

My poor chi needed a surgery.They went from saying i was approved to refusing after raising all the money.Statibg that I made to much and owned my home.Which I told them thatvI owned from the start.When I offered to show my earnings by my tax returns they refused them.They would have proofed i was being honest and live at poverty level.Then they stated on a public web site that I was going to put down the animal to spite them.Which was total BS they were just trying to cover their butts.

Having met several in this group , and personally know Karen M, I can say I have never met a more loving, caring, selfless, drama free organization such as FTLOP! They stop at nothing to help the helpless. That means 2 and 4 legged. They are small but mighty and are wonderful people to boot!
Sincerely, Karen Randolph!

I was having trouble feeding my cats! A neighbor next door had somehow collected 12 furry kids and theses were furry catsLol Wekk this poor neighbor was overtaken in a fire started by hsome arsonist and he died from smoke inhalation. Well I collected up his cats and brought them to my house to stay! Well I called Karen and Marshal McCumsey and they helped me gfeed 13 cats until they slowly went on there way! These cats were feral cats and ate ran.lol I had Three of my own already ! I kept one of them! So after that i fed mine myself! We became very good friends. Even after a that she would bring a bag of food once in a while. She talked about some of the things she would have to do York other people and their pets ! They are a great place.amd without them I could have a disaster ! Thank you so very much Karen and Marshal and God bless you both❤️
