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.

Mass on toe
Bruno is the love of my life and my best buddy. He is my
right hand, sweetheart of sweethearts, and one of the smartest and most
dogs that one could wish for. My wish came true when I rescued Bruno.
Bruno has a mass on his toe.
I'm told by the vet that he needs to
have surgery to stop the
cancer from spreading. The radiographs show his lungs to be clear, but
the toe must
be removed to prevent further progression of the mass. My vet says this
done ASAP or Bruno doesn't stand much of a chance.
I have pulled together all of my resources and
have to put toward Bruno's surgery. I receive social security
unable to work per diem and I do not have any assets to draw from. I
my kidney if it would help save Bruno. Iím asking the Magic Bullet Fund
me raise the remainder of the fee, that I cannot cover.
Please help me help Bruno fight this cancer. Please
get the surgery he needs. Can you make a small donation? He really does
a chance to beat this and enjoy life! From the bottom of our hearts
Bruno and I
thank you for your support.

7-year-old Golden Retreiver
I have raised Nickel since he was six
months old and he has been a faithful and loving companion to me since
the very first kiss/lick. Nickel has always been a strong and healthy
dog. He was always the first to grab a stick, fetch and play. He earned
the nickname "bobble head" because his head is always shaking, tail
wagging and he's ready to play. Whenever, wherever and with whomever.
Always a hearty eater, it caught my attention when
Nickel would not eat his favorite meals, gobble down his favorite
treats or even muster the energy to play. I knew something was wrong
with my boy. The vet examined Nickel and felt a mass in his abdomen.
After a CT scan and blood work, the bad news came that evening with a
diagnosis of an 18cm tumor in his stomach. The diagnosis was Stage IV
Finally, upon speaking with veterinary oncologist
Dr. Skope, I learned that Nickel was not sentenced to death. Dr. Skope
outlined the treatment plan of chemotherapy for Nickel and told me his
odds. Not exactly what I wanted to hear but it gave me hope, and hope
is what one needs when dealing with this disease. When I heard the
price that treatment was going to cost it deterred my spirit. But as
long as Nickel has a fighting chance I vowed to not abandon my baby boy
no matter what!
I have been able to afford the bills for his first
few rounds of chemo treatments, but I have come to a crossroads.
Working two to three jobs is helpful but still not enough. I am trying
to find a more affordable residence and I am doing everything I can to
keep Nickel healthy and strong.
Nickel is doing well and I will never
give up the fight to help him beat this disease.
Thank you, Magic Bullet Fund. Thank you to all the
donors for your generosity, caring and compassion. Thank you so very
much for taking the time to read our story. Nickel will beat cancer and he will live to be a strong,
healthy and energetic "bobble head" again.

Benedict in the News!
8-year-old Labrador-Shepherd mix
We were looking for a dog to be a companion
and also to be a
watchdog since our neighborhood had changed in the seven years since we
here in 1999. We saw a picture in the newspaper that showed a
that was up for adoption by the Animal Protection Society of Durham,
went to see him immediately and at first sight we knew he was what we
looking for all along. We found out he had been running around the
suburban Durham. He was then given to foster family for six weeks to
wounds on his back to heal. The Animal Society checked us out and said
qualified for the adoption. The foster family named him Benedict, so we
that name so as not to confuse him.
When we got him home he was a little wild for two or
weeks, but we treated him nice and he soon calmed down. He has been a
companion and a good watchdog for the past eight years. During this
passed all of his annual physicals with flying colors. Then things
