Oh I never shared this here!
This might be on a forum somewhere already but I couldn't find it.
All you canines might want to know about the Magic Bullet Fund http://www.them.....tfund.org/ They help families who can't afford treatment costs. Hope it can help one of our tripawds.
Kerren and Mona (who's still waiting for her financial assistance from a pharmaceutical company that produced the vaccine that gave her cancer)
Help for those who need it from the Dog and Cat Fund at http://www.dccfund.org
My cat Mona will be getting her financial assistance from the manufacturer of the vaccine that gave her cancer. If your pet's cancer is from a vaccine then ensure your vet reports it to the pharmaceutical company.
As you know the Tripawds fundraising appeals policy doesn't allow direct personal fundraising for vet bills within the Tripawds community, but since paying for emergency vet bills is an ongoing issue for lots of folks, I was just wondering if any Tripawds members have seen or done any creative methods to help pay for vet bills during hard times? For example, auctions, golf tournaments, etc? Any ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks!

3-paws up to Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo! A recent news article reported:
Since April, Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo Cancer Assistance Care Fund has paid $111,350 for 38 animals to get cancer treatment owners couldn’t afford. That surgery, radiation or chemotherapy can save an animal’s life or put its cancer in remission.
University of Tennessee at Knoxfille was one of six veterinary colleges to get the three-year grant from Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo Foundation Cancer Treatment Support Fund.
The others are

Nice to see the alma mater be one of the ones to get a grant.
