Shakespeare Animal Fund serves those in 13 Northern Nevada counties (excluding Clark, Lincoln and Esmeralda) with veterinary bills due to accidents, sickness, and other emergencies.  Since our inception, we’ve helped more than 13,000 pets. For many of our benefactors, their pet is their only family, the reason they get up each morning and their source of unconditional love. We believe no one should ever have to choose between taking care of their ailing companion or putting food on the table. 


Shakespeare Animal Fund provides the essential funding to ensure that our community's elderly, disabled, returning veterans, and low income families will not have to put down or say goodbye to a suffering pet because they can't afford to pay for emergency care. 


Because so many do without food, medicine and other necessities in order to save their animals, who are often the only “family” they have, Shakespeare’s mission is to expand its operation in order to help a greater number of individuals, as well as increase the amount of money it can offer for the care of each animal.

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for your help in getting our Khaleesi girl to the vet. I was so stressed trying to figure out how we were going to be able to pay for her to see a vet. Money has been so tight during this pandemic and because of your organization we were able to get her in right away. Thank you for helping my family."

"Our family and Winnie wanted to say thank you for donating to Winnie's ectopic ureter surgery. Her smile in the photo says it best. For the first time in her life (7 months) she is leak free and infection free! There are not enough thank you's to express our gratitude. Your foundation helped us in a time of great need."
