Actors and Others for Animals,
I'm not much of a writer, so I'll make this short and sweet.
I am single, in my late 60's and live alone with Sandy, my dog, who is a my constant companion.
When Sandy became very ill and required surgery and I was without the funds to pay for the required surgery, Actors and Others for Animals stepped up and helped significantly in paying my very fair invoice from my local and highly recommended Rimforest Animal Hospital in Rimforest, CA.
I cannot thank Actors and Others for Animals enough because Sandy is a very important to me. She is not a mere pet, she is my friend and constant companion.
I have benefited greatly by the assistance from Actors and Others for Animals and their benefactors should know how their donations have had such a positive result. It should also be noted that the request for help process was simple and the response time incredibly fast, which was also very important in my situation.
Thanks again Actors and Others for Animals for helping me keep Sandy well,
I thank the heavens for Actors & Others for without their financial help my Mary's gum infection would have quickly gotten worse. They truly care about animals and their desire to help care for them is amazing. God bless this organization for without their help so many of us would be unable to get our sick puppies well.
My poodle is 10 years old and I noticed that she would not eat at times and she had this bad odor coming from her mouth. I noticed that her teeth were loose and her gums looks horrible. Then I noticed that her teeth were falling out. I was so upset. My first thought was do I put her to sleep because I am on a fixed income and did not think that I could have her medically taken care of. I was referred to ACTORS AND OTHERS to see if they could help me. When I spoke with Beverly she made me feel so much better about the situation. She told me that they would help me take care of my Sasha. This organization is a lifesaver. The procedure was done, poor sasha had to have all of her teeth removed. But she is back to herself and she is eating a lot better. I cannot tell you how happy I and Sasha are. This organization is a BLESSING.
Actors and Others helped us at a crucial time for he dog we rescued, MiMi. We found MiMi while on for work. We found her wondering the streets in the cold going thru turned over trash cans looking for food. She was limping, extremely thin, and shivering. We got out of our work truck and called her over and she waged her tail and slowly limped over to us. Upon further inspection she was covered in fleas, had rotten teeth, a horrible oral infection, and had several large masses over her body which were bleeding. If it was not for Actors and Others we would not have been able to afford MiMi's surgeries on our own. Five months later she has become a permanent paw-mily member and has gained weigh, and is extremely active. She loves to play and hobble around our backyard. If MiMi had thumbs and could talk she would sing Actors and Others praises. Thank you for what you do!!! You helped us save MiMi!!!
My beautiful loving blue eyed pit, Chico, was attacked by three dogs. They had tore a hole behind his right front leg. I was told by one of the vet techs that they could put their hand in the hole and nearly touch his sholdera. I had initially taken him to one of those 24 hour pet hospitals; however, just to be medicated over night it would be nearly $300. At the time I didn't have the funds and wasn't able to get approved for a credit to get him the care he needed. I was far from ok with putting him to sleep either.
I had gone home with Chico wrapped up in a blanket and did what I could to care to his wounds. I had posted something on my Facebook about what happened and a friend of mine let me know about the Actors and Others organization. I had placed a call to the number I found on their website and they told me where to take him and they would help with getting him care.
It was like a gift from God himself because Chico's wound had bursted open. We rushed him to the Arrowhead Animal Hospital in San Bernardino just in time.
Every day I look at him happily playing around like he was a little puppy ( he is nearly 10 years old now) brings me sheer happiness. If it wasn't for the amazing people from Actors and Others this wouldn't be possible.
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!
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 !!
