Mission: DaisyCares is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that was created to provide pet food and veterinary care to needy pets by providing assistance to their owners. DaisyCares recognizes that when economic hardship falls upon people, the cost of caring for a pet may be prohibitive. During these difficult times, pet owners need the love and support of their pet more than ever. The promise of DaisyCares is to save pets lives and keep them with their family.

Results: In its first year, the DaisyCares Pet Food Program raised 46,357 pounds of pet food and helped 972 families. In 2011, the DaisyCares Pet Food Program raised 145,447 pounds of pet food, which is a 260% increase in the amount raised in 2010. (since April 2010) Number of Families Helped: 4,469 Number of Pets Fed: 15,046 Pounds of Food Collected: 191,804

Programs: To meet its goals, DaisyCares has created two programs: the DaisyCares Veterinary Care Program which provides monetary grants for veterinary care, and the DaisyCares Pet Food Program which provides hard shipped families who might otherwise be faced with the decision of abandoning or surrendering their family pets with pet food assistance.

This is for daisy cares I was really upset to find out that I was approved for $200. My vets bill was $182. And daisy cares only paid $100. That leaves a balance of $82. I have no income right now if I would have known they were only going to pay $100. I would have never treated my dog cause I don't have funds to pay now I got a balance I can NEVER pay cause I don't have funds! Daisy cares did me wrong! So if you thinking about donating think twice before you do if they left me with a balance I wonder how many families are in my situation! I'm very discussed with daisy cares I should have never called! Now I have to go back on facebook to let the world know how these people work they tell you one thing and then they back out of their obligations putting people in debt!!!

I love to volunteer for daisy cares. I have volunteered for three events this year. My favorite event was the DaisyCares’ 5K Run. To see all the pets and their costumes. Also to see how many people support daisy cares. Its a great program and I'm hoping this years events will get more support.
