Happy ‘Tails’ of Pets You Have Helped
While many charitable organizations provide care for wildlife, strays, abused animals, or relinquished and abandoned pets, few exist for the large number of pets from otherwise loving and responsible families who cannot afford the cost of care. Your gift to Frankie’s Friends assists families who demonstrate substantial financial need and whose pets would have a good prognosis for long-term recovery to a normal quality of life.

In the posts below, read about some of the many recipients of Frankie’s Friends’ support. Thanks for giving these families more good time with their furry family members.
I am greatly appreciative for the financial help you gave my family by providing treatment for our 3-month-old pit bull/beagle “Killah Lopez.” I am also very thankful for the staff and veterinarians at BluePearl Veterinary partners for helping us take care of our puppy. Without them, who knows what would have happened. Our dog is always happy and playing with everyone. He has a great personality and again I want to thank you for the support you gave us. I am sure our dog Killah is also thankful for the [...]
We would like to thank Frankie’s Friends foundation for helping save my little girl, Bear. Bear is a 3-year-old Jack Russell terrier. We have had Bear since she was about 6-weeks-old. She is the most beautiful, loving girl with the biggest personality. She is like a daughter to us and we can’t imagine being without her. Thank you so much for helping pay for her gastrointestinal surgery. She is feeling much better and is getting back to her larger than life personality. We are forever grateful and will never forget [...]
Words cannot express the heartfelt gratitude, appreciation, and joy you have given us! Mitzi and I thank you so very much for your assistance and generosity. Thanking Frankie’s Friends, BluePearl and Dr. Lachowicz for his excellent care, encouragement, and compassion as well. Sincerely, Mitzi and Mommy (Stacey) xoxo
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind and generous gift towards treatment for lymphoma for my cat Dunston. I was heartbroken when I found out his diagnosis, and extremely stressed since the treatment that offered the best prognosis was not within my means. I love Dunston so much; he’s family to me, and I wanted to provide him with the best care available. Without your contribution I wouldn’t have been able to consider optimal treatment as an option. Best Regards, Michele
I wasn’t sure I was ready to get another dog when I came upon my 9-month-old puppy, Baby. We had recently lost our beloved English mastiff, Oz, to osteosarcoma about 6 months prior. That was very hard for us. I rescued Baby from the Humane Society when he was just 3-months-old and fell in love with all 3 pounds of him! It was a big change going from the world’s biggest dog in my 180 lb mastiff to the world’s smallest at just 3 pounds. I should really say that [...]
Frankie’s Friends, It’s hard to really express our appreciation for the assistance from this wonderful organization. Our cat, Layla, is an amazing gift, and we have been continuing to enjoy and love our time with her since the very second she was brought back home after foreign object surgery. Since we took in Layla we noticed right away she had a destructive nature, much like that of a puppy. One of her usual routines is to drag her litter box, on its mat, right out of the bathroom in her [...]
Dear Frankie’s Friends, In the beginning of January our precious English mastiff, Sadie May, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a very aggressive bone cancer. Our family was devastated. Our options were explained to us by the veterinarian, but unfortunately most were outside our financial capabilities, and that broke our hearts. Everyday became more of a struggle as Sadie’s pain got increasingly worse. After talking to several different veterinary hospitals, we got a glimmer of hope from Michigan Veterinary Specialists in Grand Rapids, MI. They told us about Frankie’s Friends and within [...]
Charlie is my 3-year-old English mastiff who had occasional seizures. We recently moved from Kentucky to Tampa. She seemed to be handling the move well until one morning around 5 a.m. She began to have a seizure that simply would not stop. She seized on and off for almost three hours before we could get her to BluePearl. She weighs in at about 150lbs and we had moved into an apartment complex on the 3rd floor, so moving her was next to impossible. Once at BluePearl, Dr. Shreve took wonderful care of [...]
Frankie’s Friends is amazing! My, thinks he is a black lab, Mexico Max from Chelem, Mexico (a Yucatan rescue dog), has a colorful past including two near misses with death! The grace of God saved him. Now he has been diagnosed, at the age of six, with multiple myeloma. The doctor, Joshua Lachowicz, a truly excellent oncologist with the BluePearl Veterinary Partners hospital in New York, is a kind and compassionate man. He instantly took steps to put me in touch with Frankie’s Friends. Within 24 hours you had checked [...]
Our family can’t begin to express our sincere gratitude to veterinarian oncologist Dr. Jen Coyle for the unexpected, but much appreciated gift she coordinated through Frankie’s Friends for our beloved four-legged canines Sassy and Bailey Martin. Receiving news from Dr. Coyle, that our sweet 5-year-old golden retriever, Bailey, was diagnosed with cancer, was devastating. After 14 months of intensive treatments, Bailey’s progress was optimistic. Our joy turned quickly to sadness as our six year old black lab mix, Sassy, was also diagnosed with cancer. Due to a corporate downsizing, our [...]
