The Magic Bullet Fund was the only organization to reach out to us to help us with Kevin, our terrier mix who is now in remission from a mast cell tumor. The fund helped us raise money to be able to afford his chemotherapy treatment. I also volunteer for the fund and Lori is great to work with!

We cannot thank the Magic Bullet Fund enough for helping us get our sweet Sasha girl the surgery she needed in order to get rid of her cancer. I’m not sure what we would’ve done without their help. They are doing amazing work helping families save their loved ones who can’t afford to save them theirselves.

When our beloved Ryder was diagnosed with a mast cell tumor on his ear, we were devastated. Our goofy, affectionate, handsome boy was simply too young to lose to cancer! For twenty years our family had raised bullmastiffs and we had lost 7 wonderful dogs to cancer. When we lost our last one to bone cancer before she had even turned four years old, we decided not to have any more bullies, but to rescue needy pitbulls instead. We hoped that pitties and pit-mixes would be less prone to cancer. Then suddenly we were faced with cancer yet again in our first pitbull rescue. But the Magic Bullet Fund stepped in to help us with Ryder's surgery. We are so grateful for their assistance and support. Ryder is currently health, happy, and still goofy. And we pray he has many, many more long, cancer-free years with our family.

This is my Delilah. A few months ago my 7 year old dog was diagnosed with Lymphoma. When I heard her diagnosis I was in absolute shock, heart shattered and my world completely stopped. I adopted Delilah when she was a little baby. When we met, it was love at first site. She follows me around everywhere I go. She is the most loving and caring little angel. She will get on her back legs and put her front paws up to everyone she meets to give them love. She's my little baby bear. I make her breakfast and walk her before my first cup of coffee. She's my child. She's my heart. She's my everything. Our Oncologist informed us without treatment, Delilah would only have 2 months to live. The medical bills are beyond belief. When I adopted her, I promised her I would take care of her and make all of our moments the very best. Through sickness and in health, I can't give up on her. She deserves a fighting chance and I will move mountains to make that happen. I contacted every Pet fund imaginable and if it wasn't for Laurie Kaplan from the The Magic Bullet Fund, Delilah wouldn't be sitting on my lap today with her head pressed against my heart. I was so lost and confused but Laurie Kaplan helped me and guided me by email and phone every step of the way. She even contacted Delilah's oncologist to discuss treatments. Words can not describe the amount of love and gratitude I have for Laurie Kaplan and The Magic Bullet Fund. Delilah and I both carry Laurie Kaplan and The Magic Bullet fund in our hearts every day.

The MBF is an amazing non-profit! I met Laurie, the founder, on-line many years ago when the furry love of my life was diagnosed with cancer for the 4th time. Although I didn’t use MBF funding, she was an inspiration to me. I decided that I wanted to do more to help others fighting the same fight with their beloved fur kids and became a volunteer. I am proud to be a part of the MBF, which helps so many that would otherwise go without treatment.

This is a wonderful organization providing much needed hope and financial support for medical treatments for pets with cancer. A great team of volunteers and leaders that makes the operation very efficient and effective. As the cost for pet medical care rises and with increasing number of families who can't afford veterinary cancer treatment bills, this is an indispensable organization of compassion and hope.

I came upon the Magic Bullet Fund shortly after the agony of losing a third Golden Retriever to cancer. I wanted to get involved in some way to help others who needed help going through this trauma while wrestling with the expensive treatment necessary to help their dog through it.

I’ve been a volunteer with the Magic Bullet Fund for many years now. It may have started from a grass-roots effort by it’s founder but has since grown into a full-fledged non-profit organization helping more and more dogs get critical care while helping the owners raise the funds needed to cover the costs.

I’m more than gratified to be part of this charitable effort and the upstanding way that Magic Bullet Fund operates and supports this profound cause.

Wow where do I start?
Well in 2017 my brother had a cat that got along really well with my boxer, and they were playing one day and he popped tugg playing. Over the next 6-7 seven months I noticed that it wasn't going away so I contacted a vet.
Grace Animal Hospital, they told me that it was mast cell tumor cancer! Out of shock, and disbelief I have no money to pay for this surgery.
I started praying as I do over just about everything and I was told about the Magic Bullet fund. What a remarkable, remarkable group of people they took about a week to approve me and it was so simple, even my veterinarian told me wow they are so good and easy to work with! After two weeks tugg had to get surgery he has recovered 100%!
I cannot say enough good things about this organization I hope that God truly blesses them, as well as each and every person that uses them will be blessed! My veterinarian has posted them in their office and they are sharing the word about this organization and how easy they are to deal with in their financial situation as well as the love they felt from Magic Bullet staff.

The Magic Bullet Fund is just a wonderful organization. They walked me through every step of the way in the process. They are kind caring people and helped out with what they could. I had 2 dogs go through the fund. And I appreciated them so much that I have been a Volunteer for over 10 years.

This organization is the greatest to work with, the staff is very nice and great to get along with. No matter how bad or good it gets they are there with you. They work wirht you to get the funds you need amd the support you hope to get. I can't thank them enough foir what they did for my Xena. With out their help I would have lost her long ago but they gave her more time on this earth to spend with usand to be free of cancer for a little while longer. Unforuneately Xena has went to the bridge now but I know that she is there playing with the other furbabies that went before her nad some day we will be together again soon. There are happier cases thart the dogs go into remination and live a long life thnaks to them. Lori Kaplin works had to help the people in need of helping their furbabies and she doesn't give up. She has one of the kindest hearts I have ever known and to give her time to do this for people that needs the help for their dogs well what more can i say but she needs to get a medal for her life time work Thank you Lori Christensen

This is axe a 4 year old pointer mix. Axe is an emotional support dog and he was diagnosed with MCT cancer. Axe needed surgery and chemotherapy and I didn’t know what I was going to do. If it wasn’t for magic bullet I wouldn’t be able to give my pup the chemotherapy that he needs. I am so grateful for this foundation. They’ve helped so many including my Axe.

Magic Bullet is an organization you wish you never had to contact. For my family they have made it possible for our beloved Sadie to still be with us and be on the road to remission, and that has made all the difference. We can't put into words the amount of gratitude we have for the good people involved at this organization. Because of them our 3 year old daughter still has her best friend around and our 2 month old son will hopefully get to know her as our daughter has.

Ukiah is a Beautiful Malamute who was dropped off in front of my home in march 2008 weighing 60 pounds and dying from HeartWorms and Pneumonia.He made it thru those issues.Then a worse issue came up during a routine Teeth Cleaning in March of 2010.A small spot was discovered-in his mouth- and removed.The Diagnosis was Aggressive Oral Melanoma.Ukiah would need Radiation Therapy PLUS he would need to receive a DNA Based Cancer Vaccine-every 6 months for the rest of his life.I found a group called MagicBulletFund.org....and a Lady by ythe Name of Laurie Kaplan...Had it not been for Ms.Kaplan and "The MBF"-Ukiah would not be here-15 months and counting.....after this awful sentence of Death.We owe Ukiahs life to MagicBulletFund,Laurie Kaplan and her staff.

This is a fantastic organization. They really came through for me when my 8 year old lab, Luna, was diagnosed with cancer. I plan on donating money to this fund once I land a job. Thanks from Luna's Mom!

When Mooba, my beloved basset hound was diagnosed with Lymphoma and a mast cell tumor, I was devastated. The prognosis was grim, without Chemo he would only survive another three weeks. I wasn't prepared for that and having just been laid off of my job, unable to pay for treatment. Letting him die because of the lack of finances was unaceptable. Money or the lack of it cannot be the bridge between life and death. So, I searched the internet for help and found the Magic Bullet Fund. I feel like they literally saved him in the eleven hour. I was crying and thinking that I would have to put him down, when I recieved the life saving call from The Magic Bullet Fund Organization. The very same day we were on our way to the Clinic for treatment and within days of the first treatment I saw a huge improvement. Mooba has been under the care of the Veternarian and supported by the Magic Bullet Fund and all of the wonderful donors for nearly six months, he is in complete remission and soon will be having surgery to remove the tumors. Without the support from the Magic Bullet Fund Mooba would most likely not be here now. I am forever grateful to them.

When my golden retriever Scout was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the rib, I had just lost my job and the timing was awful. I began selling personal items to pay for the surgery and then realized she would need chemotherapy--a very expensive treatment. The Magic Bullet Fund helped to raise funds for Scout's chemo treatments at a time when we needed it most. They worked with the veterinary hospital and took the pressure off us so we could spend quality time with our beloved dog. Regardless of the outcome, the MBF gave us more time with Scout.

Hi. My name is Erica Cameron and I had a dog in MBF for about 3 months last fall. My American Bulldog, George, was only 3 years old when he was diagnosed with lymphoma. Left paralised with fear and diminishing funds, I did and internet search and found Laurie Kaplan's Magic Bullet Fund. They are a great organization that both donate and help you to raise the money necessary for your dog's cancer traeatments. Laurie also provides you with great advice. Although George did not win in the end, he was worth every minute and every penny I spent helping him in his battle against cancer. And, he fought and stayed in good spirits all the way to the end. I would recommend joining the MBF family to anyone else going thought this with their dog.
