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.

We are just totally out of money and having a hard time


I have my puppy with two broken bones already. Vet bills are adding up and today I noticed these weird lumps bothering my 3 year old boxer Kinsey. These lumps are red swollen and pus/blood filled. We are just totally out of money and having a hard time..and it's just one thing after another.

If you're moved to help animals in need like Kinsey, please click here, then select the 'recurring monthly' box and donate just $5 a month in support. THANK YOU!


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,
