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 whose loving and responsible families cannot afford the cost of life-saving care. Your gift to Frankie’s Friends assists families who demonstrate substantial financial need and whose pets, with treatment, have a good prognosis for long-term recovery to a normal quality of life.

Rafiki: Thank you from the Bottom of All of Our Hearts

Rafiki: Thank you from the Bottom of All of Our Hearts

I just wanted to take the time to thank you so very much for your support and help with Rafiki’s care. If it wasn’t for the wonderful staff at the BluePearl clinic (Brandon, FL) who donated their time and your amazing company, I know Rafiki wouldn’t be here today. I am a full-time college student and my boyfriend works as lead chef at a restaurant. We do whatever we can for our two dogs who are our children. This past week, Rafiki wasn’t acting like himself and he couldn’t control […]

A Newfound Hope for Emma

A Newfound Hope for Emma

Dear Frankie’s Friends, My 6-year-old female short-haired Dachshund was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease known as Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia. Emma’s survival is contingent upon weekly blood screenings, blood transfusions, and several immunosuppressants administered daily. I am a Social Worker currently working at a non-for-profit drug treatment facility servicing at-risk women in Brooklyn. As one can imagine from my chosen profession, Emma’s care has been a great financial hardship. And since her treatment is ongoing, there is no end in sight for my concerns over her care. This dog has brought […]

Lucky, A Protective and Loving Soul

Lucky, A Protective and Loving Soul

We feel extremely blessed by your organization and want to take out the time to thank you for your generosity. Lucky is an 8 year old smooth fox terrier with a protective personality but a loving soul. We rescued Lucky in 2011 from Animal Care and Control and he has struggled with health issues before but never to this capacity. He was diagnosed with a Mast Cell Tumor-Grade 2 and given only a few months to live. Your organization exemplifies outstanding support and love. We thank you for helping of […]

Sandy, Thank-you for Your Kind Generosity

Sandy, Thank-you for Your Kind Generosity

I’m writing to let you know how much I appreciate the assistance I received from Frankie’s Friends during my time of despair regarding my cat Sandy. Sandy is such a good boy, he’s very loving and with me being disabled, he provides me with comfort and support every day. We depend on each other, and his sister, so much that I can’t go from one room to another in my house without them both following me. I don’t know what I would have done without the help from Frankie’s Friends […]

A Special Heartfelt Thank-you from Snoopy

A Special Heartfelt Thank-you from Snoopy

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone at Frankie’s Friends for all the help, compassion, and love they gave to my dear Snoopy. Snoopy had a lot of difficulties with his health and at one point we thought we might lose him. That was until I did some research and got in contact with this wonderful foundation, and they gave him a new lease on life. My family and I are forever grateful for what they have done for my family. And of course a special heartfelt thank-you from Snoopy […]

Pockets – Thank You from the Bottom of My Heart

I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It means so much that you’ve helped us get our little guy the help he needs in his battle. He has been with my wife for 15 years, and with me for 12. Pockets has been such a special family member. He does not act like a 15 year old, has a lot of energy. He loves human food, esp steak and ribs. My daughter Chloe and he have the best relationship, he looks after her all the time, sleeps with her. We […]

Thank You for Saving My Beloved Cat Lilo

Thank you and your wonderful organization for helping me and my beloved cat Lilo in our time of dire need. My boy Lilo would have died that night if he hadn’t received the help he desperately needed from the great people at BluePearl…they saved his life. I am of modest means of living and I really was over my head in terms of the financial costs that came with saving my baby. The kind people there let me know of Frankie’s Friends charity pet foundation and submitted on my behalf. I thank […]

Grey Wind and Summer, Thank You for Everything!

Grey Wind and Summer, Thank You for Everything!

I adopted Grey Wind right after my girl cat Jude passed away. He was a ball of energy that brought love back into our home after suffering our loss.  Here he is as a kitten. Not long after that I experienced a traumatic time in my life. They say that animals come into our lives at just the right time… in Summer’s case the great “They” couldn’t be more right! I found Summer at 5 months old living in the back parking lot of my job. Sleeping under cars and eating bugs. […]

Thank You for Helping Paris, Lots of Love from Us!

Thank You for Helping Paris, Lots of Love from Us!

Dear Frankie’s Friends, I am so glad that you guys provided us help with your financial assistance. You guys really helped my family and my barely four month old puppy. This was an emergency that we didn’t see coming so we weren’t exactly prepared with the money. Although it was a few rough hours, we sat tight and you guys took care of Paris and she is feeling better compared to last night. Paris broke two bones in her leg luckily you guys help us to put it in a splint and […]

Missy: Words Can’t Express the Gratitude I Have in My Heart

Missy: Words Can’t Express the Gratitude I Have in My Heart

I cannot begin to thank every one at Frankie’s Friends for their generosity and kindness in helping me with the cost of Midnight (Missy’s) chemotherapy. When Missy was diagnosed with advanced lymphoma I was is complete disbelief. Just the week before I had to put my 12 year old sheltie, Kassie, to sleep for an inoperable tumor in her chest.  I just kept thinking, I had done every thing a pet owner should do, regular vet visits, heartworm prevention, flea control, good food and lots of love, so how could this be happening? When Missy and […]

Molly, Who Makes Us Laugh and Happy Every Day…

Molly, Who Makes Us Laugh and Happy Every Day…

We are overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of those at the Zeus Varis Fund for the grant you have given us. You have made it possible for us to treat our sweet, affectionate, clever dog Molly. It is a huge relief to know that she has a chance to live a longer, healthy life and that we can hope to share many more years with Molly wh makes us laugh and happy every day. We adopted her 5 years ago. When we saw her at the shelter she was […]

Thanks for Saving Beignet, She’s Better than her Previous Self!

Thanks for Saving Beignet, She’s Better than her Previous Self!

I wanted to extend my sincere thanks to Frankie’s Friends for helping to save the life of my French Bulldog, Beignet. Somehow, weeks earlier, sneaky Beignet managed to eat a peach and the pit remained in her system for weeks. Around July 31st, she was not her usual friendly and spunky self. I took her to Blue Pearl when she wouldn’t stop vomiting. X-rays didn’t reveal the problem and exploratory surgery was needed. I walked into Blue Pearl with $250 in my bank account which took care of the initial […]

Thank You for Helping My Companion, Queenie

Thank You for Helping My Companion, Queenie

Dear Frankie’s Friends and Zeus Varis Foundation, At this time, I would like to thank you for the grant and financial assistance awarded me for the care and welfare of my cat, Queenie. I only adopted Queenie last year from the ASPCA and she is such a great companion. Living alone in a big city is very intimidating but not when she is around. Queenie protects the house and meows a mile a minute. Before Frankie’s Friends stepped in, I had exhausted all my options for obtaining financial assistance from funders […]

Desert, a Unique Soul

Desert, a Unique Soul

Desert is a unique dog, to say the least. Born with a broken tail that curves around in the shape of a question mark, he is blind (the result of a congenital defect) and his favorite food is a ripe banana. He sleeps on his back, paws propped against the closest wall or doorway, where he is often found “impeding traffic” as his human mom says. Regardless of being unique, he’s loved immensely by his family. So when a routine checkup led to a diagnosis of multicentric lymphoma—a common canine […]

Vinny, My Best Friend

Vinny, My Best Friend

Vinny was recently treated at BluePearl veterinary offices. He had a blockage in his intestines and the surgery was going to cost too much and this non-profit organization has helped in the greatest deal possible. Vinny (which is short for Vincent Van Gogh-Cat because he is missing part of his ear) is my best friend and I don’t know where I would be without him. He has been by my side for a year a half now and I couldn’t bear to be without him. Thank you again for everything […]

Mona – I Love Her Infinitely

Mona – I Love Her Infinitely

I lived in France, in Paris. I left my family, my friends, and my career to live on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean … in New York. I left everything except for my cat Mona. We have shared our lives together for 5 years and even in the name of love I could not abandon her or live without her as she is my hairy alter ego. I love her infinitely. Mona fell through the window. If Frankie’s Friends didn’t exist I would not be able to take care of my cat. […]

Jax Gets a New Leash on Life

Jax Gets a New Leash on Life

Jax, our 16-week old Australian Shepherd puppy, was a spur of the moment addition to our family. We had talked at length about a therapy dog for my daughter who was born with a seizure disorder, so I finally decided to just do it and went with her on my day off to pick out our new family addition. Jax and my daughter were instant friends. He took to her the minute they met. Once home, he became sort of a therapy dog for us all. All while we began […]

Poof and Cyclops – Two of Our Beloved Cats Helped by Frankie’s Friends

Poof and Cyclops – Two of Our Beloved Cats Helped by Frankie’s Friends

I have been a pet owner my whole life and had always had great success using one flea product on all my pets. I had been told that I could use a small dose of flea product meant for my dog on my cats (generally Frontline and Advantage*), and this had always worked quite well. Unfortunately, I recently grabbed a different brand meant for dogs and used a small dose on my four cats. A few hours later my kitty Poof was having seizures. I quickly washed all my cats, […]

If Baby Could Talk, she would say “Thank you for saving my life.”

If Baby Could Talk, she would say “Thank you for saving my life.”

“Baby” and I would like to say thank you for your love and support. I had Baby since she was a kitten and it scared me to death to know that she was very sick. I took her to Blue Pearl Emergency Vet Hospital and explained the situation. Knowing my financial problems, they didn’t turn us away and took us in with open arms. I knew that my baby was in the best of care. I am so grateful for your time and effort to help Baby get well. Now […]
