An orange kitty started showing up at our house one morning and never left. I'd feed him, love him, and let him be on his merry way; but one morning the kitty was still on my porch from the night before and didn't come to greet me with his usual chirps and purs. As a matter of fact, he couldn't even lift his head and seemed lifeless. I rushed him to the vet's office to find out he had a urinary blockage and his kidneys were shutting down. The kitty was going into a coma and without immediate treatment, he wouldn't make it through the night. I had grown very attached to this orange kitty over the months. More so than even I had realized, because when the first vet bill of over $1000 was given, I didn't even blink an eye. I wanted this kitty to live and I'd do whatever it took. The orange kitty -that had melted my heart- did make it through the night, but he was on several medications and had to be monitored hourly which meant he lived at the vet for almost two weeks. The bills became overwhelming, and I was at the point where I could no longer afford for his care. Devastated and desperate I tried every avenue I could think of with little to no help. That is, until I found For The Love of Alex. They contacted me soon after my application was sent and actually LISTENED to this stray's story. They had compassion and care, as well as the resources and funding to keep this kitty alive. For The Love of Alex helped continue with his care long after expected. They checked in on him and myself to see how we were doing. They did research about his issues and came up with alternative ideas when what we were doing wasn't working. They found specialist when our vet no longer had answers. They found precious time when everyone else was too busy to listen. I could go on and on about For The Love of Alex, but at the end of the day, I really can't even begin to put into words what this organization has done and means to me. I mean, how do you review how much a life means to you and the people that chose to help that life go on? All I know is, because of For The Love Of Alex, my Burrito Kitty, formly known as the orange stray, got a second chance at life and a family to call his furever home. For that, I am forever grateful.

For the Love of Alex Inc. is a great nonprofit! They help animals and their owners who are in need, when they need help with veterinary expenses! I have not needed their help, but their group has given great advice in the past. I once had a kitten with very bad runny diarrhea. I asked for help, and was given advice on what to do. It worked great, and my kitten is now fully grown, almost 2 1/2 years old now!

For the love of Alex is the greatest thing to ever happen to me and my cat. My cat had two cancerous tumors that would have cost me close to $2,000. There was no way I could afford it. Thanks to For the love of Alex, she’s completely healthy!

I started following For the Love of Alex, and was touched by the love and compassion they show to both the animals and their owners. They also go to great lengths to get them well. I have donated several times.
I appreciate their efforts to carry forward the hard work and persistance of Elizabeth, the recently deceased founder.

I have been a contributor to a number of fundraising appeals on behalf of individual animals. I am moved by the genuine concern for helping animals in great need, often of major surgery. Always Alex sets the highest possible standard of care, never amputation when board certified orthopedic surgeon can repair a limb. And always, personal involvement at every stage. So many individual miracles.

The person who answers emails/messages has their own ‘ego’ problem. They get little ‘jabs’ in at you basically blaming you for a pets injury. When you say you don’t appreciate the comments, they blatantly say to you that it’s your fault the animal is injured, tell you, you have an ‘ego’ problem (not the first time they have used the ego comment, see other complaints) and then block you from further communication (because they can’t handle criticism).

I was disappointed in the lack of help. I'm trying to save my 3yr old cat who has a blocked bladder. the vet recommended a surgical procedure. There were several cats shown on the website as having been saved by this procedure. I e-mailed the site looking for some assistance and I said I would hate to have to put him down for a fixable condition that is beyond my means. I received what came across as a rant against the procedure and a rant about wanting to MURDER my cat.

I'm trying desperately to save him and got nothing. If there was another option I certainly would have entertained it. I've already spent everything I have. I thought they would help.
