Review for Magic Bullet Fund Inc., Yorktown Heights, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many beautiful dogs fighting and surviving cancer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to promote organization more. More media coverage.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the quick responses to my emails and the support from other clients whose dogs have had or are having treatment.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very polite and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help save the lives of so many more beautiful animals who do not deserve to die.

Ways to make it better...

there was a little more phone contact, especially in the beginning when you really need the reasurrance that help is on the way.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the recession.

One thing I'd also say is that...

at a time when the world is in a dark place and happiness is difficult to reach, the Magic Bullet Fund is a shining star, because no matter how bleak things are, your best friend (dog or cat) can always make you smile.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I am an extremely grateful client.
