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.
Reno, NV, October 6, 2014: Sometimes it’s a choice to eat, pay rent or take care of the animal you love.
Raven, a small, cheerful Pomeranian born in 2001, was adopted from an abusive situation by Gail Bauer when he was about a year old. In the winter of 2012-2013 he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Gail borrowed the funds for the surgery that saved his life.
Then, two months ago, in July 2014, Raven developed what looked like a tumor on his belly. Like many people in in Nevada, Gail had, by this time, lost her job as a result of the recession and could not afford the care needed for Raven.
Raven’s doctor, Dr. Remson of the Animal Care Center in Fernley recommended that Gail contact the Shakespeare Animal Fund for help.
“Raven (Ray Ray), my Pomeranian, has been by my side for over 13 years and is like a child to me. Recently, I was laid-off from work and the funds got real tight. He developed this pocket on his belly and I thought it could be a tumor. I needed to have it looked at, but I did not have the resources to take him. Thanks to Shakespeare and their donation, Raven was able to see Dr. Remson at the Animal Care Center in Fernley. We owe our gratitude to Shakespeare for being there to assist at such a critical time.”
