A few of our latest pleas for help!

We get hundreds of calls each year asking for help. But we also get a large number of emails pleading for help as well. Read a few of these and see why we care so much. Each story is touching, and shows how much people love their pets and how desperately they want to help them. Our job is to continually raise funds so we can get dying and suffering pets the medical care they need when their owners simply can’t afford it.

Booboo needs Lantus & and check up!


Hello! I'm in desperate need of assistance for my diabetic cat, Booboo. He was diagnosed with diabetes in January of 2014.  As a result of an unfortunate series of events I  am living in an unheated camper in the back yard of a friend.

I ran out of Lantus for Booboo about six weeks ago and have been struggling to come up with the money to refill his old RX for Lantus and syringes that I got from a vet.  Booboo needs a Lantus pen ( $94 ) and a box of syringes ( $30 ).  I would also like to get him to the vet as soon as possible to have his health checked and re-regulated after not being on insulin for six weeks.  

Can you please help?  I look forward to hearing from you!

My best to you,



Daisy's desperately trying to avoid euthanization


Hello! Any amount would help. :( I'm trying to put off the tests atleast until the first part of February, maybe by then I can raise enough. And then I can only hope we will be okay on refills for at least 6 months longer or the vet said maybe even a year!?   I told the vet Friday that I'm desperately trying to avoid euthanization but they are adamant about needing a recheck ASAP  grrrr

Thank you for your time responding :) love from myself, and Daisy too.

One of the hundreds of emails we receive asking for help...
My 10 year old female Australian shepherd/goldenretriever that I've had since she was 6 weeks old, 
needs help. Bella has a growth at the top base of
her tail that the doctor needs to amputate. The costwill be between $800-$1060, with a biopsy to
test the growth. I'm sick with fear, the loss of her
tail, and worst case, possibly losing her. She came to me when I was diagnosed with MS, she was
"my rescue", she saved me, now I need to help her.

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.
