The Pet Fund is amazing. I received funds today for our beloved Pointer Mix that we will put towards future chemotherapy treatments that we could no longer afford. They are compassionate, caring and professional and have allowed us help our pup continue her battle and keep enjoying life.

Thank you!

My Chihuahua has cancer and is getting chemotherapy. Our family is low income and this is very hard for us and very expensive. We got a grant to help with our dog and getting treated. Thank you very much again! From Teresa Alvarez and family.

Our dog needed knee surgery and we couldn't afford the whole surgery cost. Thanks again for helping out with the vet bills. She has a long road to recovery but she is doing much better. Thanks for helping her stay with the family.

Our dog has cancer and needs chemo. The bills were more than we could pay and we would have had to put our dog down. Thank you for helping us to keep our dog and help with her cancer vet bills.

I am incredibly fortunate to be a volunteer for The Pet Fund. For the last 12 years I have been working with worried and concerned pet parents, helping them with the long term
health needs of their pets that are beyond their ability to pay. While I absolutely love helping pet owners get the care their pets need, I am so glad that I also have the opportunity to talk with them and help set their minds at
ease. When people call, it’s at a very stressful time in their life, and I understand that. And when the worst happens, we are able to direct grieving pet parents to grief
counselors. And to be honest, I cry with them. I wish we could help every animal, but more resources are needed to cover the many pets who need help around the country.
Working for The Pet Fund has made such a difference in my life. Volunteering for The Pet Fund has been the perfect opportunity for me to teach my kids about giving back to
society, and about the importance of caring for pets responsibly.
