When my cat Seymour started limping one morning, I took him to the vet and learned he had a caudal cruciate ligament rupture which required surgery. I had already exhausted my Care Credit for his exam and x-rays and had no idea how I would come up with the money for his surgery. A friend told me about PetChance, so I thought I would try it. I had never used a fundraising site before, but found PetChance extremely easy to set up and maintain (they also have a way you can thank donors right through the site!). Any time I had a question or concern, my email was answered quickly and completely. The day of the surgery, I contacted PetChance to ask them to send the money to the vet, and it was done almost immediately. PetChance is absolutely wonderful; without it, Seymour's surgery would never have been possible. I am more grateful to PetChance and their staff than they will ever know.

Luna's chance didn't have a happy ending, but I can't deny without PetChance I wouldn't have been able to get a proper diagnosis for her, closure, and well, a chance. We started looking for funds because we spent everything we had JUST to have her seen when the initial symptoms started, and as she got worse and worse we needed to take her in again but had no means to. The simple act of sharing a story made such a huge impact. We raised over $1,000 in less than 24 hours. I shared on Facebook, my Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr and people who could give, gave. People who could not, shared and managed to find others who could give a little more. Unfortunately though we were able to take her in for care very quickly, she was too far gone and we were out of nowhere suddenly making a decision on how to say our goodbyes. I will never forget the random acts of kindness people from random parts of the country put into this, the generosity, the warm wishes, the support, it's all helped the wound hurt a little less. I am eternally grateful for PetChance for helping make this happen. Luna died in our arms under euthanasia and will be cremated. The full amount was not used, either. So another thing I found beautiful is how those proceeds can go towards the care of other animals at the same facility who may need it. This company goes above and beyond to give people and their loved fuzzy (scaley or slithery) ones exactly what's in their name. A chance.

I am so grateful for the help from PetChance.org . I had to ask for help for my sisters dog that lives on the East Coast and I am on the West coast. Her little dog is in right now getting the help he needed because of the wonderful caring people here. Thank You all so very much

Hi I am in tears of My new Boxer has went through a surgery just to find he needs it again he went through two surgeries with in the last 4 weeks I am now facing the bill on Care credit . It is Over $3000.00 So far Not done yet, Oliver is 6 months so yeah not even registered I was not even had him well enough to get shots and register. That is my next move when he is well. Oliver is got a Clostrium i think how you say it. My baby had a mesh like coating that was thick and it was over the Small intestines covering most of his stomach. The medication he is on is thinner and is looking better but not out of the woods yet I need funding to pay the bills we had racked up. Please Help Oliver get better.

In a moment of complete despair and heart break, crying uncontrollably in my car after being told my Emma needed an Emergency Abdominal Surgery and how much this may cost...and that they did not work off payments, and that payment was due at time of service kind of a deal.....with me not even having close to the amount of money needed.... I felt I was going to lose my kanine child who brings me so much joy and love, I did not know how I would get through this... I prayed to god for a miracle because my baby shouldn't have to die because I didn't have the money to save her.... then my cell phone rings and it was the manager of the vet clinic my Emma was being treated at because she didn't know I was out in their parking lot still crying my eyes out..... she told me that "someone" was donating making a large donation that was enough for them to start the surgery, but I had to ok it and I had to agree to make a pet chance account for Emma to ask for donations to help pay the rest of the balance plus a payment arrangement.. and without a second thought, I said YES YES YES..I will do anything. I did not know anything about pet chance at this time, other than they were saving my Emma's life. Pet Chance is a wonderful wonderful organization that help save the lives of our beloved furry babies and I will forever be greatful, and I will forever want to be a part of this myself. Once I am back on my feet, I will be one of those donators who help save other furry babies. It truly is such a blessing and they do miracles... because this was my miracle..... and how do you thank someone for that? I honestly don't know... but I do know, I want to be a part of helping other animals and I encourage others to be a part of it as well. Thank you Pet Chance for saving my Emma and all the other furry babies out there that you have, or will save in the future. You're an amazing organization. Thank you so much.

I had never heard of Pet Chance. When my Golden Retriever, 'Autumn Marie' got a terrible infection on her tail. this is when I found out about it. She has been to the vets 6 times in 9 days and will be going back again Friday. She HAD to be seen this often to try to get this infection under control. I lost my job 12/31/13 so I asked my vet if there was any discount I could have. She is the one that led me to Pet Chance. I was kind of embarrassed to ask for help, but so many of my wonderful Facebook friends stepped up to the plate to help me and my dog out. I am so humbled. Pet Chance has been so helpful. The only complaint that I heard of was that some folks wanted to leave their names, they didn't know how to do it so it came up as 'Anonymous'. That makes me feel bad as I don't know who to thank. Other than that though I think it was quite simple. Thanks so much Pet Chance for the help!!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Only to make it easier for folks to key in their names and not come up as Anonymous

I noticed that, under the question: "HOW DO YOU FEEL YOU WERE YOU TREATED?" .. the highest praise to choose from is "Quite well". I would have selected "I was treated with exemplary care." I have only praise for the good people at Pet Chance. They listened, responded effectively, communicated clearly, and went out of their way to accommodate me. I have much respect and appreciation for them. and so much gratitude that they were there when my sweet boy and I needed them. Ultimately, they made his life easier, and saved him great discomfort. I trusted only one vet with my baby, and had I to do it over again, I would trust only Pet Chance during a difficult time.

Thank You

I would not change a thing.

Daisy needed surgery to correct a Congenital medial patella subluxation. I wasn't sure where to get the money but came across Pet Chance. I decided to give it a try and have nothing but praise for this organization. I honestly don't know how I would have been able to help Daisy if not for Pet Chance. This was a great experience and Daisy had her surgery. Thank you so much for being here and caring and willing to answer any questions I might have had. Pet Chance truly is one of a kind.

This experience was new to me. I was scared to start a fund raiser, but I was more scared of not being able to help my dog. I was willing to do anything to help Mr.Nice. Pet Chance gave me hope, encouragement and the knowledge to be a success story. Mr.Nice was older and people said to "accept the fact that his time was nearing an end". But, I was not going to give up. With Pet Chance and a little work on my part, Mr.Nice is now getting up on his own and walking stronger. He looks happier and that makes it ALL worth it.
