One of the hundreds of emails we receive asking for help

"I rescued my dog Jack about seven years ago and he has been my emotional support and medical service animal ever since. Within the last 48 hrs he seemed to be feeling sick, so I took him to an emergency vet tonight and was told my dog has fallen ill and because treatment is outside of my affordability I was instructed to euthanize him ASAP. I cannot let my companion die because I am poor, if there's any information on how to get assistance from organizations like yours to help me save my Jack, please advise ASAP. Thank you for your time."

1-Before Surgery


"This has been such a stressful time for my senior, disabled, Marine veteran, friend.  He did his very best to stay upbeat and when he realized he wasn't, he would stop in his tracks and pray.  When I informed him that I was reaching out to my friends and strangers, he took the typical approach that any Marine would do...cry and say, God bless them all!  So with that...thank you so much for your contribution towards Tiana's surgery and for letting her dad know that there are plenty of animal lovers in this world who help each other in times of need."

"I just am trying to find the funds at this point to get his xrays done on his broken hind leg...This is such a blessing. I appreciate this help."





Baxter, a service dog, became ill and had to stay at the veterinary clinic for several days. Because of donations made to            Shakespeare Animal Fund, Baxter's treatment was more affordable for his owner and friend.

You can be a hero to people in need. Support the efforts of the Shakespeare Animal Fund with your donations of funding and of time.

Donations Save Lives

Make a Donation:
We can easily pay $5 for a fancy cup of coffee
these days. And if you would consider giving
only $5 a month (the price of that cup of coffee)
over the course of a year it would get one wounded or suffering animal to the vet.
That’s spectacular, for only $5 monthly.
