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.

son Bryan used to bring home dogs that were unwanted by others. Bryan
found Tater one day and brought him home. At the time we had a
Rottweiler named Zeke (who Bryan brought home years earlier). Tater was
a little tiny puppy and at first, he hid under the coffee table. He was
scared of Zeke. All we could think was "Another dog to housebreak!" But
after a couple of days we fell in love with him.
In his earlier days, Tater was an escape artist. He
doors that were shut but not latched, and then went through the screen
and out into the yard. He would go and Zeke would follow. They would
then go under or over the fence and everybody in the family would scour
the neighborhood looking for them. It was the funniest thing to see
this little yellow dog followed by a great big 130 pound Rottweiler. We
would eventually find them, but only after a lot nerve wracking
searching and worrying.
When we are not home he goes from bed to bed in the
looking for the most comfortable bed. He pulls all the pillows down and
climbs on top of them to lay down. We call him Goldilocks, looking for
the softest bed. When you take Tater out to do his business, he
sometimes lays in the sun and takes in the rays and will not get up
unless you promise him a cookie.
Tater loves our grandson, Layne. Layne is four and
calls Tater his
buddy. They lay together and Layne sits on him and Tater will not move.
They share lunch and snacks. When I read to Layne, Tater is there just
like he is listening too. They are inseparable.
Zeke has passed but we have another dog called
Patches, who was
diagnosed with Lymphoma five months ago. Patches is on his last
couple of treatments and was in remission but now he is out of
Tater was diagnosed with lymphoma two months ago. He
has had four
treatments. He is not in remission yet but the nodes are getting
smaller. It has been a real tough time with two dogs with cancer,
hoping and praying they will survive and trying to pay for treatments.
We managed to pay for Patches' chemo and we have started Tater's chemo,
but we just cannot come up with enough money to go ahead with his
These dogs are our heart. I wake up at night to
check on them to make
sure they are breathing. I watch and hope they will get better. I,
myself have had cancer 3x and these dogs were there for me and now we
have to be there for them. Please find it in your heart to contribute
to this wonderful charity to help our Tater."

"Tillie has not
had an easy life. She was rescued from a puppy mill by an acquaintance
who loved her. Then her adopted mommy took a serious fall and was in
rehab for some time and unable to care for Tillie. So Tillie went to a
family member who was very busy with working, taking care of children
and family and had no time for Tillie.
Another friend volunteered to take Tillie for a while, but
she had two of her own pups and travel plans.
I volunteered to help this poor little girl who had been
handed from person to person and I brought her home. I fell in love
with Tillie instantly and she with me. She follows me everywhere. and I
learned that when I left, she would lay by the door and whimper and
cry. So I take her with me whenever I possibly can.
Tillie is the most lovable, sweet, affectionate little pup
anyone could possibly have. I am so fortunate to have her and she is as
good for me as I am for her.
One day, while I was bathing Tillie, I felt large nodules
under her chin. I took her to the vet, who suspected lymphoma and put
her on Prednisone, which helped for a while but the lumps continued to
grow. Then, the vet referred me to the Animal Cancer Care Clinic where
the lymphoma was confirmed.
I had recently lost my job as a hostess in a restaurant,
and was just barely making ends
meet as it was. Tillie's chemotherapy treatment is very expensive and I
cannot pay it on my own, I need help. Our vet suggested I look for
funding on the Internet and that is how I found the Magic Bullet Fund.
I am so grateful for this help, please donate to help Tillie she
deserves a chance to beat this cancer."
