FINDING CURES. SAVING PETS.
FRANKIE'S FRIENDS HELPS FAMILIES WITH PETS IN NEED OF LIFE-SAVING EMERGENCY AND SPECIALTY VETERINARY CARE THAT CAN'T AFFORD THE COST OF TREATMENT.
Frankie's Friends is a non-profit foundation dedicated to finding cures and saving pets with cancer and other life threatening conditions. We save pets’ lives by providing grants to help with the cost of life-saving or life-enhancing emergency or specialty care for pets whose families cannot afford the full cost of treatment.
Thanks to leaps in veterinary medical knowledge, treatments and technology that are offered at specialty hospitals across North America, pets without any hope for a decent quality of life just a decade ago are now routinely saved. From delicate neurosurgeries to repair spinal cord disease to amazing chemotherapy options to extend the lives of pets with treatable cancers, pets are living longer with a great quality of life – staying with the families whom they love and who love them.
The costs of treating critical emergencies and providing specialty services are beyond the means of many loving families, who end up making unthinkable decisions due to lack of funds.
In 1999, Dr. Shaw started Frankie’s Friends to save pets who would otherwise suffer without proper care or be euthanized due to their families’ lack of financial resources.
Frankie’s Friends serves over 2200 animals every year from all across the United States.
STILL, THE DEMAND FOR OUR ASSISTANCE OUTSTRIPS OUR CURRENT RESOURCES, which is why we need YOUR help!
