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.

Help save a little guy from being paralyzed


I have a wonderful little dachshund named Oscar. Oscar has always been a jovial little creature until lately. He jumped off my bed causing a massive rupture in his disc that made him lose pelvic limb function. My family had experienced back issues in their dogs and suggested a steroid shot over a costly surgery. We tried that route and he lost functions within three days. The doctor is now saying he has to have a hemilaminectomy surgery for acute disc herniation. My family is having an extremely hard time affording this. Is there a grant we can apply for to save this little guy from being paralyzed? Thank you so much for your time.




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!

We can easily pay $5 for a fancy cup of coffee these days. And if you would consider giving only $5 a month (the price of that cup of coffee) over the course of a year it would get one wounded or suffering animal to the vet. That’s spectacular, for only $5 monthly. Sign up for regular donations using the form below
