  1. Dear all, My sweet pet cat, Rocko, has a foreign body ingested in him that is obstructing his intestines and due to which anything that he eats or drinks is being puked. He needs a surgery to get through with this else his condition will worsen day by day. The surgery is going to cost me $3000 and I cannot afford it. I would really appreciate any help that I can get from you guys. It could be leads to a vet who can perform the surgery at a cheaper rate or any organizations who can help me with this. I have already applied for a couple of them and waiting for a reply. Thank you for your time and effort to save Rocko email-id : supriyasalunkhe.23@gmail.com
  2. Bruiser is a wonderful pit bull that needs help with his chemo treatments for lymphoma found on his neck. He has been in the Magic Bullet Fund for some time but still needs help raising funds for his treatments. Please help Bruiser with a donation to the Magic Bullet Fund. You can go directly to the Bruiser's donation page using the "donate for this dog" button below. Remember that 100% of all donations go to the treatments of the dogs. Members, please type IMOM into the “instructions for seller” (or recipient) box during the donations. http://www.themagicbulletfund.org/ Below is Bruiser's story written by his parents, Carl and Danielle Hofmann, of Dover PA. Hi, my name is Bruiser Hofmann. My vet told my mommy and daddy that I have cancer, Lymphoma to be exact. My family is very sad but they want me to fight. I’m ready to fight, I’m a tough boy! I love my family and I love life but we need help with my chemotherapy treatments. A couple weeks ago, mommy was scratching my neck, which feels so good it makes me smile, and found 2 lumps. She told daddy and we went to the vet a few days later, on July 8. On July 17, 2014, it was confirmed through biopsy that I have Lymphoma. We were scared because we do not have the money for treatment but I’m so young and strong. The oncologist said I only need 12 weeks of chemo but it’s still really expensive. My parents cannot afford it without help from this wonderful foundation and caring people who want to help. My dad found Magic Bullet by doing a Google search for associations that help with canine cancer. He liked what he saw and decided to apply, knowing I cannot have treatment without help. My mom had back surgery last year and didn’t work for almost a year. Dad was in a car accident 2 years ago and has had 2 surgeries because of that. It’s been hard and bills pile up. The wonderful people at Magic Bullet Fund offered to help and we are eternally grateful for that. Please help me fight this. Donations are our only hope and we will all be forever thankful for any help given. Your generosity will never be forgotten. Thank you for reading my story.
  3. Bear is in the Magic Bullet Fund and needs additional help. Please help Bear with a donation. You can read about Bear and see the fundraising drive at the link below. I have also included a direct link to donate to Bear's treatment. 100% of the donation goes to Bear! Members, please type IMOM into the “instructions for seller” (or recipient) box during the donations. www.themagicbulletfund.org Below is also Bear's story written by his family. Hi! My name is Bear and I could really use your help. Until recently, I was a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky black lab without a care in the world. Then I had a tumor removed from my mouth and it turned out to be a malignant cancer called oral melanoma. There were a lot of tests to see if it had spread to my lungs and lymph nodes. Fortunately, it has not. My family is the best family a dog could ever have and they are all very worried and sad about me. They have been feeding me special homemade food with lots of nutrients and supplements to help make me strong to fight this disease. I need to have a special vaccine treatment, called the DNA vaccine for oral melanoma. It will help my immune system fight the cancer cells. With this vaccine I could live another two years or longer. The vaccine is expensive and my family is having financial difficulties right now. I won’t be able to have the treatment unless we receive donations. The kind and caring people at the Magic Bullet Fund have offered to help me raise the funds we’ll need to pay for the treatment, and they provided a gift into our campaign to get it started. I love going for walks, the beach and dog parks with them. Most of all, I want to spend more time with them so that they can rub my ears and belly and make me feel so good. I want to be with my family for as long as possible. Please help me to have a few more years with my family. I will be so grateful to anyone who can donate towards my treatment, and I know they will too!
  4. Hello from Georgia

    Hello, I would like to introduce myself and reach out to everyone. My name is Edith Mears and reside in Cumming, Georgia with my 4 year old Shi-tzu Ashanti. My dogs name is Ashanti, she is a 4-year-old Shi-Tzu who has been diagnosed with a slipped disc in her back due to an injury. This is extremely painful, very serious and can lead to paralysis if she doesn’t receive surgery soon. Ashanti is our family dog, love her more than anyone can possibly understand and means everything to my mom and me. I woke up one morning and noticed she was having trouble walking and yelping in pain. We rushed her to the vet where she was given Prednisone (a steroid to help reduce the inflammation) along with a muscle relaxer. I found a Chiropractor who agreed to do some adjustments and Acupuncture for a very reduced fee which seemed to help, but it was all too brief. On Sunday, we awoke to find her in immense pain again, dragging her hind legs, and crying out in pain. We rushed her back to the vet and were told she needs emergency surgery to repair a slipped disc, a cost of four to six thousand dollars! Knowing we didn’t have the funds for the surgery, due to a financial crisis as a result of my mother’s recent stroke, I applied for Care Credit but was denied. Due to my mother’s severe memory loss from the stroke, she is unable to care for herself or be left alone at home safely. Having to care for my mom, has prevented me from returning to work until her memory improves so she is able to stay home alone safely. Becuase I am not currently working, I am faced with a situation where I do not have the financial means to have Ashanti’s surgery, what our sweet girl so desperately needs. This is devastating for us. My mom receives a limited income from social security but that is all. I have started a Facebook page for our sweet girl and am reaching out to anyone that can possibly help. I am trying everything I can, including postings flyers at Kroger, Publix, the library and local business in the area. Sadly, the grocery store and PetsMart told me I had to take down the flyers indicating that I “wasn’t allowed” to post flyers requesting donations. I feel so helpless when Ashanti looks at me with her big pretty brown eyes and to know that I am limited in what the outcome will be when it comes to her quality of life and seeing the pain she is in hurts my soul, to the core. I won't ever give up on her and do whatever it takes to get her well again.
