Dogs Who Need Funding

Dogs Who Need Donations for Cancer Treatment

* Each dog receives a General Fund distribution to start their fundraising campaign.  Fundraising campaigns remain open for one month for dogs in chemotherapy. For dogs having surgery or radiation therapy, campaigns remain open until the day before treatment, up to one month. Donations that cannot be used for the dog they are meant for will be reallocated to the General Fund so that we can help other dogs. You will receive a thank you from Magic Bullet Fund, with information for your accountant. - Make a Donation to Lucy Segobiano - Live Donations Tracking for Lucy Segobiano

I picked out Lucy when I was 15 years old. Choosing between her and her sister, I took a second look at Lucy and then I took her home. That 20 seconds of reconsideration gave me THE BEST animal that has ever crossed my path. She is literally like my baby.
    Lucy was in my senior pictures in high school and also in my family pictures I have with my wife. She
sleeps between us in bed, under the covers. She will never be just a "dog" to me. She has such an attitude and she lets it show, yet the love and excitement she has for us is one of the best feelings. My whole family loves her - parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins and friends - who have all been doing their best to help us since we found out about Lucy's cancer. She has mast cell tumors on her stomach and needs chemotherapy weekly. We are doing all we can for Lucy, and every contribution is a blessing to help us.
    Thank You for taking the time to read about our Lucy.

My name is Emily and my furry daughter is Isabel. I adopted Isabel from a shelter in Nashville,TN when I was 16 years old and she was 3 months old. She is now 6 years old. My husband and I moved to North Carolina after he joined the Army and was stationed at Ft. Bragg. We live in Hope Mills.
was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. The treatment for this is chemo and it is very expensive. We will travel an hour and a half away from where we live at Ft. Bragg, to the nearest veterinary oncologist weekly for her treatments.
   Isabel has been my constant companion through two deployments. I couldn't imagine losing her so soon but we cannot afford the treatments on our own. We feel blessed and amazed beyond belief that the Magic Bullet Fund is giving us this opportunity. Any little bit will help our girl so much. Please donate to help us.

Tank was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. The chemotherapy is very expensive and we do not have the funds. I am in the Marine Corps and my wife is a hairstylist. We would do anything for Tank and that's why we have reached out to the Magic Bullet Fund for help.
    We have a small business that started to slow down do to economic downfall in our military town. We got behind on payroll taxes and owed the IRS a large amount. Money is very tight these days and our credit cards are at their max. We are making it by but it's a stretch. We have no more money for Tank's treatment and he needs help soon or it will be too late.
    We just received orders to Japan next year and cannot take him unless he's healthy. There is only one American vet on base and they do not do chemo. We never excepted this, its just so hard.
    We feel like there is a black cloud above our heads and we can't catch a break. We always say to each other that we our good people and someday we will get a miracle. Being able to get treatment for Tank would be that miracle!
We would feel blessed for any donations that come for Tank.
    Thank you for reading our story! Tank has always been a very healthy, happy boy. He deserves to feel good and live a good life for as long as he can. We can't give that to him without your help and it is breaking our hearts.

Hi there, my name is Ollie and here's my story. I came to live with my mom Bonnie in 2011. My previous owner moved and couldn't take me with, so I needed to find a new home. My foster home placed an ad online and Bonnie drove more than 160 miles to come get me.
     I was already 6 years old when I moved from Galesburg, IL to Morris, IL. I'm a very laid back dude. I love everyone I meet. I have a younger brother Bailey who is quite the goofball, but I tolerate him and his antics.
    In October 2014, my groomer Aunt Stacy was doing my hair cut when she alerted my mom to my swollen neck glands. A week later I was diagnosed with lymphoma. Mom was devastated! Mom just lost her Mom (my Grandma) earlier this year. Mom is so sad, I can tell. I want to be strong for her, even though I have cancer. Mom started my chemotherapy treatments right away. It is very expensive, so I am asking for any help that you can give me and mom to ease the burden, I know she can't afford it.
   Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
    XOXOXOXOXO Love and Smooches, Ollie :)

Chemotherapy (post surgery)
In MBF: 11/5/14
Campaign Ends 12/5/14

We need to help our beautiful girl survive cancer. She still has so much life to give. After her surgery to remove her mast cell tumors, the pathology results gave us the devastating news that she now needs chemotherapy. The chemotherapy will cost $150.00 monthly and we cannot afford this.
    We have had Coco since she was 6 weeks old so you can imagine our grief. We have three kids and Coco is our fourth. For the kids, Coco is the only dog they have ever had. One of my sons has autism and although Coco was not trained to be a therapy dog, she has unlimited love and patience for him.  I love her so very much but the financial situation is taking a toll. Any little bit would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless.

Hello My name is Davie! I am a handsome 9 yr old Australian Shepherd mix and I have been diagnosed with lymphoma. I am such a happy dog, love to play with my friends and receive lots of love from family and friends. I am a tough boy and I can fight this horrible disease. But my family desperately needs your help because the treatments are very expensive. Without your help I cannot get the treatments I desperately need.
    I came across this awesome website while searching for help. I am very thankful for everyone who has been willing to help me.  My mom tells me I am her best friend, she says that with help from the Magic Bullet Fund and from the donations of people who love dogs, I will be able to get the treatments.
    Please help me with your donation so I can live a long happy life and be here for my family and friends? Thank you so much.
