Dogs Who Need Donations for Cancer
* Each dog receives a General Fund
distribution to start their fundraising campaign. Fundraising
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.

Bullet has brought much joy to this family.
He started off a 20 pound pup rescued out of Boulder Humane Society. He
grew into a 100 pound fur ball who just loves life, and people. He is
extremely friendly and loves kids. My son often says “I love my dog
Bullet.” Although Bullet didn't exactly find a bundle of noise
(otherwise known as a baby) appealing at first, as our son grew, so did
their bond. They learned to play together and work together. Bullet has
become a great protector of all of us.
The best memory I have of Bullet is from when I was
pregnant. Noise never bothered him before, but this big thunderstorm
sure did. He tried to crawl under my chair! Noise still spooks him, but
as long as we are home, Bullet is a calm and happy dog, even when it's
the 4th of July.
We discovered lumps in January with a routine check
up. A follow up visit, and a biopsy determined the lumps were
cancerous, but it was undetermined how bad the cancer was, how far it
spread, or exactly what caused it. We spoke with the vet school in
norther Colorado, who were all hopeful than an operation would save his
life. Without it, he wouldn't last the year. It is a very tough
decision for this family. We just can't afford treatments, but we have
to do everything we can to save him.

As a puppy Julien was nursed by a cat. When
we brought him home at six weeks old, his sister Luna (our Siamese cat)
was there to greet him. So, naturally, Julien thinks he is a cat. A
Julien LOVES his stuffed animals, playing
tug-of-war, cuddling and jumping in piles of leaves. He is so sweet and
loving and has even won a couple costume contests, after melting the
We were heartbroken with his diagnosis of lymphoma.
He showed no signs except swollen lymph nodes by his throat. The
diagnosis hasn’t dampened his spirits though, he is just as feisty as
ever. Julien just had his 4th chemo treatment and is responding very
well! He has had no issues, side effects or symptoms and I hope it
stays this way.
I am struggling emotionally with the fact I may not
be able to save a perfectly happy and otherwise healthy pup because of
money. I am a single homeowner with a mortgage and student loans, and I
work full time at the local Children’s Hospital. The chemotherapy costs
weigh on my family tremendously especially since my mother recently
lost her job of twenty-nine years.
So I ask for your help - whatever you can
give, monetarily or by sharing our story to grow support for our
Julien. A canine lymphoma support group recommended the Magic Bullet
Fund and I am so very grateful! Please keep sending positive thoughts
and prayers our way!

Six years ago, we decided to get a puppy. I
told my wife she
could pick any puppy. She decided she wanted a runt of a litter and we
took Lola home. Six years later, we have been blessed with our time
with Lola. She is so much more than a dog to us. She is our baby and
best friend. She is the best thing that has ever happened to us.
On March 20th, we took Lola to the vet and
discovered that she has lymphoma. The news was so shocking to us
because she is only six years old and so full of life. Losing Lola
wouldn't only devastate us, but our beloved dog Viggo would lose his
The last couple of years have been exceedingly
trying on us financially. We are barely able to pay our bills on a
regular basis. However, we were fortunate to find the Magic Bullet Fund
on the Internet. They are going to help us in our time of need.
We are embarrassed to have to ask for donations, but
we are not ready to lose Lola. We have no other options.
If any of you reading this are able to make a
donation for Lola, we would like to thank you with all of our hearts.
Your donations will not only provide for Lola's treatment. Even more
graciously, your donations will bless us with the greatest gift we
could ask for, and that is the gift of hope.
