Dogs Who Need Funding

Dogs Who Need Donations for Cancer Treatment

* Each dog receives a General Fund distribution to start their fundraising campaign, thanks to a $50,000 Grant from thePetCo Foundation Grantto the Magic Bullet Fund.  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 Rivers Underwood - Live Donations Tracking for Rivers Underwood

I found Rivers on the side of the road, abandoned at 3 months old. One look from him and he stole my heart right there. I nursed him back to good health and he has been my companion for the past 5 years. Rivers is such a loving, smart, wonderful best friend, and a 90 pound lap dog. The bond between us is undenieable. Every morning I wake up to get kisses from him.
    A little over a year ago, I noticed a raised area on his front shoulder. At that time, I was financially strained and couldn't afford the testing. Last year, I went through some financial hardships, unemployed, full time student, eviction, banckrupcy, going to food banks for food, electricity shut off and other situations. I completed school for massage therapy in September 2013, amd have been saving for the requirements to obtain my licence for my new career. That has all now been on standby due to the funds need for Rivers' treatment. I took Rivers to the oncologist and the best treatment is surgery. They recommend one chemo treatment prior to surgery, in hopes of reducing the size of the tumor to have better odds of removing the whole thing.
    I love helping others anyway possible and I've donated my time and funds in the past when I was able to. It's hard to ask for help now, but I will be so very grateful to receive any help whatsoever. Please donate for Rivers.

Several weeks ago I noticed that Shaky's eyes were rolling back in his head. Just like that...he became blind in one day. He was diagnosed with glaucoma and the vet said something else was going on with my beloved Shaky. He was then diagnosed with lymphoma. Knowing that I cannot afford to pay for treatment on my own, I began to research possible sources of assistance. Thank God that I found Magic Bullet Fund!  I feel a sense of hope for Shaky's recovery knowing there are kind strangers who love dogs as much as I do (particularly Shaky!). Without help from MBF, I would be unable to get the medical treatment he needs very soon. Shaky may need to get his diseased right eye removed but first get the lymphoma into remission. I am already hugely grateful to MBF for helping us on this difficult journey, and I cannot thank you enough!  I am grateful to anyone who donates funds to help us get urgent medical treatment for Shaky.  Thank you very much and God bless all of you!

8-year-old Collie

  My sweet Taz is 8 years old and was diagnosed with Lymphoma three short weeks ago. Taz has been my constant companion since he was 6 weeks old. He is extremely smart, very loving and just about the friendliest dog you will ever meet. Taz and I lived on a horse ranch for 6 years. After I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, Taz went from being a ranch hand to my service dog. Always smart, always willing to please. That's why I believe with all my heart that he deserves this treatment. I am a widow on limited income and I am moving heaven and earth to help him.
    Will you help us? The wonderful Magic Bullet Fund has given us a launching gift to get our campaign started and I hope you will help us too. If everyone who reads our story will just donate a little we will be able to raise the remainder of the cost of Taz's treatment. Thank you very much for helping us.
