Unfortunately, we low-income seniors love to give fur-babies homes, but we don't have in our budgets for emergency situations, so The Shakespeare Animal Fund is a blessing for any help that they can give. God Bless You!"

I bottle fed this dog at 2 weeks old and he is a treasured member of the family - growing up literally with my youngest son to become a steady and constant protector of my 3 grandchildren...Mere words cannot express my family's gratitude for your generosity. It's obvious you are true animal lovers. God bless you."

Thank you once again


Thank you once again for helping with Tai-tai's vet bill. She lost her battle this morning. Her lungs and abdomen filled with fluid, so euthanasia was my only option. She didn't even make it that far. She passed away after sedation. Thank you for helping give me this last week with her. I am very grateful.

~ Becky


So Grateful


Thank you so much. The cat is able to get her wound lanced and cleaned, get an antibiotic, get her ears cleaned and get a topical flea/tick/heartworm/ear mite treatment with your money and mine put together. I am so grateful to you.


We were touched


Rudy and I were touched to have your donation for the vet. I tried to attach some pictures of him so you can know who you have helped. We wish you all the best and won't forget you and Shakespeare.

Happy Kitty Cat


Thank you so much for helping me with my vet. bill. It is appreciated. I won't forget the Shakespeare Foundation. Yesterday my kitty had surgery to remove the braces from his face so he no longer has to be fed with a syringe. Happy cat.



You helped my heart as well as Hannah

Hannah-10-Nov-15 73

I wanted to thank you again for your assistance in allowing us to get veterinary care for our dog, Hannah. What a difference in her!! Although her ear will never stand up straight again, after only one week of ear drops, antibiotics, and antihistamine, she is no longer scratching herself raw. I don't know how to thank you.

You and your group provide such a needed service, and being involved in rescue myself, I know it is often a heart breaking job. In this case, I hope you realize that you not only helped our Hannah, but you helped my heart as well.

Thank you again,


What you did was huge and I'll never forget it!

img2 thankyou-d-c3

I thank you so much that you helped so that I could get in and learn what was really wrong and get this treatment started.  Without you none of this would be possible.  Shakespeare Animal Fund opened the door so that my family and I can afford a long term treatment for him over time.  Without your help this never would've been possible.  What you did was huge and I'll never forget it!



You are amazing!

img2 thankyou-d-4

I honestly didn't think I would get an email back. You are amazing. What you do for people is so great, I don't know what to say, thank you. Thanks to people and foundations like you that help the less fortunate. I'm crying right now this really will help so so much.



Kobie's back!

Kobie Thank You

I cannot tell you what a big difference the surgery has made. It is incredible. He has made a great transformation from being lethargic to almost acting like a puppy again. Kobie is 10 years old. His energy has returned, that little bark has come back when someone is around, his kisses are back and more special then ever! Kobie is back to running around, letting me know that he wants cookies, when to go out and seeking the love and attention that I have missed so very much.

Laurie (Kobie's Mom)


You are a true angel to Romeo and I


I wanted to send you a picture of Romeo, he is home recovering. Romeo had an uncomfortable night but seems a little better today. I thank God he is home where he belongs.  Romeo and I want to thank you for helping pay for his much needed surgery. Wonderful acts of kindness like yours Jennifer changes lives, I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Shari P.


We are very grateful for your help.


Aletris has been doing quite well despite all that ails her.  Thank you for being a part of why she is doing well. We still have a lot to treatments to go through and continual funds to raise. So we are again ever so grateful for your help.
