Our dog, Harley, had not been eating well and was not quite his usual energetic self, and we discovered that he had severe gum disease. There was a significant amount of infection, and left untreated Harley would continue to feel poorly and the infection would only get worse and continue to spread. We were told that the surgery needed would cost around $600. We are a family of 7 living on a single, non-profit income, and we simply didn't have the money to get Harley taken care of. Our hearts were broken at the thought of having to give Harley up in order to get him the treatment needed, so we contacted Actors and Others for Animals as well as another program through our county animal services. Between these two organizations, the cost of Harley's surgery ended up being completely covered, and he is now healthy and back to his usual happy self! We are so grateful to Actors and Others for Animals for helping make it possible to get Harley the care he needed!
My sweet little dog Pepper was a gift from the shelter. They said she was healthy except for a little tartar on her teeth. When I took her to the vet it turned out she had a truckload of infected teeth and I didn't know how I could possibly pay for the treatment. He said it could affect her heart, so I knew I hd to help her. Actors and Others offered to help me pay, and both Pepper and I are thankful. I am an old disabled lady but I need to take care of my dog and it was wonderful to get help from this kind organization.
This was our sweet Kiki, she had a tumor and we couldn't afford the surgery, as we had serious health issues as well, actors and others came to our rescue! We knew her situation was dire and we were able to enjoy more time with her as our pet. She was a seriously abused rescue and it took many years for her to trust us, eventually she allowed us to pet and hold her, she will be missed but our many thanks and gratitude go out to the organization that made it possible for us to extend a life that meant so much to us. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!

Our cat managed to swallow a needle a few weeks ago. After going the normal route and spending approximately $3000 we were out of options. We had exhausted the vast majority of our savings and thought we would have to put our cat down since everywhere else was quoting approximately $2500 - $5000 for surgery. Luckily, we called Beverly who sent us to a vet who quoted us at $800. I couldn't believe it. Turns out, the total charge was $380. Beverly saved our cat who is now running around and being himself. Talk about a lucky break. Thanks to this charity, you really made a wonderful difference and saved us from a ton of heartache.
My Harley had a cyst burst on the side of his neck . I picked him out the day he was born. He is now 12 . Actors and others came to his rescue and helped me with the cost of his surgery. If not for them I don't want to think about what could of happened . He is home and a very spoiled happy boy. Thank you from the depth of my heart actors and others !!
Our dog Rose was diagnosed with a closed pyometra, the diagnosis alone cost us over 650 dollars. We were told the surgery would be at least 3 thousand. Beverly called me back that very night when I applied. Not only did they find me a better location they helped with the majority of the cost. Thanks the this amazing charity our best friend rose gets to be with the family for many more years. The most amazing charity i have ever seen in action.
I talked to Beverly from actors and other animals about my cat Oreo. She gave me places to call to receive help to have his teeth pulled. She was very helpful and sweet. I could not afford his surgery and with her help and orhers I was able to get him his surgery I would recommend them to everyone.
you know the story. a friend in need is a friend in deed. when faced with my emergency, a senior dog attacked all I wanted was grandma to get help. actors and other stepped up, not only with money but compassion. every conversation with Beverly was talking with friend. offering advice and over the phone someone to lean on. grandma had her surgery and its healing well. I hope I can have her love as long as possible....A&O THANK YOU SO MUCH
KIWI before actor's and others my little dog had been in unbarable pain due to bad gums. We never realized she was in such pain. She has keept this odor to her. We all assume it was do to her swilling her food whole and continually picking around her mouth. For about 2 years this went on. We figured the pain she did show at times come from her hip. When Kiwi was a puppy we rescued her from a puppy mill. She wasnt wanted and was going to be left on a street corner at 2months old. She during her time at the puppy mill was abused. Well we finally saw no matter what we did and bought kiwi to and in pain relief nothing worked. We found a low cost clinic and took her. At that time we were told kiwi need surgery to remove to real real bad teeth. At the time kiwi was a dog who shyed away from others, was very scared and would always be shaky. She would hide under the bed and never played with the other dogs. She never chewed her food swallowed her food whole. She had a small that no matter how many baths we would give her would take this small away. When we were informed of the cost of surgery we were devasted we didnt have $600 for the doctor. For one day and a half I stood searching for a program to help. I called every program I ran across every one wouldn't help because it was dental. Then I had filled out an application to Actor and Others. That same day they called and by the next day KIWI was going for her blood work and right the next day she went into surgery. Now Kiwi is a viberant dog full of life. She no lo get hides or shys away from people. She smells good looks happy pain free and we owe it all to Actors and Others and to the ones who donate to this life saving miracle making program. A big thanks from Kiwi to everyone at and everyone who helps Actors and Others stay in operation to help animals in need.
