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.

Our dog Boxer suddenly had become paralyzed due to a slipped disk in his back. His back legs were no longer functioning and he was unable to use them at all. He was just dragging himself around the house. It was so sad. I reached out to a few different places to get a procedure paid for where the vet would try later treatments in our dog to see if it would help. It is a safer and cheaper alternative to the surgery. So Actors and Others was awesome! They got back to me right away about the case and were very concerned about our dog and us. Within a day we had some money out toward the procedure from Actors and Others! Our dog has fully recovered the use of his legs!!! He is walking and so so happy. I am so grateful for Actors and Others and the help they offered.

My name is theresa , I have recently found myself at the bottom of the barrel having literally lost everything I ever had except my truck and my best friend in the world Gracie. She had her first heat not long ago and despite my best efforts to keep her separated, she became pregnant with a litter of great Dane puppies. My Gracie is a small Staffordshire terrier pitbull, and is in no way built to handle a litter from a breed of that size. Imagine my terror realizing that the only one I had left in this world, my best friend and my family was going to die, and I had no means to prevent it. No money for needed veterinary care and no way to get the money. Imagine knowing that there was a way to save the life of the person who means the most to you, and having it be. Just out of your reach. Thankfully I remembered what my sweet Grammy had told me long ago about her beloved Betty White promoting a place called Actors and Others for Animals. So I quickly contacted them and filled out their online application for assistance, and to my amazement they responded not within days, but WITHIN MERE HOURS!!! 2 days later I was picking up my Gracie from the vets office! Although she was very scared as she had never been away from me since the day she had come into my life, she was also very much alive and on her way back to being the happy and healthy canine companion who has honestly been my only reason to keep going. If it had not been for a sweet woman I know only as Beverly @ Actors and Others, and the people she entreaties to help us at the Ruff irg. And Ontario spay and nueter, there is no doubt that I would have lost my best friend and my life would be forever devastated with that loss. I cannot express my thanks enough to convey the depth of my gratitude to Beverly and all of the unknown paticipents in my personal miricle. These selfless giving souls gave me back my friend, they are the godsend that I so needed in my time of desperation.

Thankfully,
Theresa F. And Gracie Girl

Beverly and AAOFA have been fantastic with Morgan! He is a neighborhood garage dog that needs a better life and some surgery. Not only did Beverly recommend the perfect vet, but AAOFA also contributed to Morgan's surgery fund! They are truly angels. Thanks For everything:).

My husband and I are so grateful to actors and others for their help with the surgery that saved my puggle "chewie's" eyes. He had a mass growing on one eye and when we took him to the 2nd vet he finally found the one on his other eye, he also had a mass growing on his gum that would have soon stopped him from eating right. The animal medical center did the surgery for a very low price and they accept actors and others. Thank you Lord for non-profit groups like actors and others!!! SINCERELY!!!! RON &MARIA MAXEY

I was very happy to get a pledge for my dog Jo Jo to get spayed over at The Spay & Neuter Project LA in Van Nuys. They also told me about two other non-profits who agreed to help me with a pledge for the surgery. They were very kind and caring over the phone, and my pledge was over at the location on the day of the surgery. Thank you so much!

My little Chihuahua-mix "Minnie" needed orthopedic surgery on her back leg and Beverly of "Actors and Others for Animals" helped us find an excellent surgeon in my area. They also contributed to help cover the cost. This surgery is going to help Minnie live a long and mobile life. All of my dogs are rescues and they have been through some rough times. It's really great to have an organization like "Actors and Others For Animals" for information, referrals and financial assistance.

I owe Actors & others a huge thank you , I didn't believe that they would actually reach out to help me but they did and when they did it was a miracle I felt as if god answered my prayers. I'm only 18 years old and my dog was on the urge of life and death. My options were either to put him to sleep or pay the bill. I was so stressed out because I couldn't afford the bill but I didn't have the heart to take his life away so I took a chance on Actors and Others . So thank you Actors and Others and to who who Donates because u truely are saving lives and helping us out so thank you so much it's very much appreciated.

Thank you for your help with our beloved Sheltie, Lancelot!

Extraordinary times take extraordinary angels!

Your organization and its angel donors are just such heroes.

Thank you for helping us with the surgery our beloved Shetland sheepdog, Lancelot, needed recently.

Lancelot is 8 years old. We’ve loved him since he came into our lives at 11 weeks old. My son is a single child of a single parent and Lancelot is his beloved pet.

We’ve never needed help with caring for our Lancelot until now. So we want to thank you so much for your gracious assistance.

Peace and Blessings,
Glenna and Matthew

My doggie Crickett got diabetes and pancreatitis, both recently, and Actors and Others came through to help on both counts. Their generosity lessened the burden on me being a senior, disabled and low income. The help saved the little fellow, who is happy right now at home!

Duplicate it elsewhere!
