One of the hundreds of emails we receive asking for help

"My cat needs some surgery and I'm trying my hardest to come up with the money to save him, but I'm having a hard time. His name is Milo he is a year old and he is my best friend and it is hard to think about losing him. On 12/5/17 Milo went for a walk in the woods and did not come right back like he always does. We looked and looked for him then on 12/9/17 he came home. I could tell something was wrong so I have taken him to two vets. He has one back foot that needs amputated and he has 3 broken bones his hip and his femur and his other foot on the back. He is a strong cat. I just don't want to lose my best friend. I only want the best for him, thanks."

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.

So what do you do if you love your animal but can't afford to pay the bill?

Shakespeare Animal Fund, a non-profit charity was founded after the loss of a beloved cocker spaniel "Shakespeare". He died after a very costly illness, and in his memory this fund was founded to help others who might face financial problems while trying to save their pets.

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.
