I was in a panic. With no money. And a female that had come down with pyrometra. A disease that I had never heard of. And a likely hood of her dieing from it without an operation. Pet chance responded to my email immediately. And were very supportive. My little girl is past the emergency stage. And I found our county has vouchers for spaying. Which is what she has to have because of this disease. So I don't need their services at this time. But it's nice to know that they are there if another emergency does happen.I don't know if I can say I was a client served because I didn't need their complete service. But had I needed it I know they would have been there for me 100 %.

Pet Chance does impressive work. At a time when personal finances are difficult for many and everyone has a hand out asking for donations, it's great to have an organization who goes above and beyond to help people meet their goals and help their pets. Pets are family!

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.

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!!!!

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

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.

I don't know what I would do without PetChance. They have been there for Dexter and myself so many times. Their customer service is outstanding. They answer questions very fast. They provide us with so many ideas on how to get our PetChances noticed.

PetChance.Org has been the most amazing experience for me in helping me fund the care required for my dog, who was diagnosed with a disk problem in her back. They are caring, compassionate, and sincerely try to help everyone they touch. By working directly with veterinarians to verify pets' needs, they confirm the diagnosis of the pet and also the legitimacy of the funding request. Other sites pay the requestor directly, and there has been some deception on these sites as a result of that practice. With PetChance.Org, the funds go directly to the veterinarian, so there is no chance of deception. I think this is a great idea and I am so happy to see this happen. I now know where to go to help others when they need assistance with their pet care. I will definitely pay it forward.

Pet Chance was amazing in helping my 2 year old Golden Retriever Moose who was diagnosed with lymphoma. He was entered in one of their contests at a dog function and they were so amazing in helping us when we had difficulty. The payments were prompt and so were emails. They were amazing!

Twice my car Daniel needed major surgery, and both times I was directed to PetChance to help raise the funds required. I do not know how I ever would have been able to provide him care without their help. Everything was handled fast, efficiently, and with a minimum of fuss or red tape. I recommend them to every person I meet who needs help with a vet bill.

When my cat Tao needed a leg amputation, I stumbled across
PetChance and boy was I glad I did. My request was met,
they made sure to check in on us throughout, and were
overall extremely professional and personable.

If you need some financial assistance, this is THE place to go.

Thank you so much!

I think Pet Chance is a very wonderful group to work with. All you do is create your chance/profile or whatever & share it with friends & family & pet chance goes well beyond their way to do the rest & make sure the vet recieves payment on time
