Reviews for Pet Fund

Rating: 1 stars  

Don't even bother contacting "The Pet Fund" ..... this is a group of hoaxters and huxters who run a tax shelter and are more interested in sheltering their income than in helping sick cats and dogs. They would not even consider helping with my cat's asthma, instead telling me it was an "emergency" and they don't help with emergencies. What a waste of time and effort . Look at their description that excludes any normal routine care and any emergency care. What else is there?

I have a service dog named Riley. The Pet Fund paid for part of a knee surgery for Riley which he needed in both knees. The first surgery is done and the second one will be done in a couple of months. He is already walking better, and thanks again for all your help.

My cat has a heart murmur and needs EKG exams twice a year. These are very expensive and I could not afford both of the tests. The Pet Fund funded a test for me and the vet changed the medication levels. My cat is doing much better! Thank you!

My dog needed orthopedic surgery which I could not afford on my own. The Pet Fund made a grant which enabled my dog, who is my service dog, to have the surgery and walk without pain. They also gave me information about financial assistance for people with disabilities that I did not even know existed. Thank you to The Pet Fund for helping me keep my dog and best friend.
