Olie was my sister’s first “baby,” and supported her from her days in Columbus, through the move across the country to Texas where he picked up a brother (Bailey), into marriage, through another move to Tampa, and into motherhood with 2 new (human) babies. He was and will always be an indispensable member of our extended family. We miss you, Olie.
Buster was my best friend. He was diagnosed with acanthomatous ameloblastoma in his mouth. He had a partial mandibulectomy. As he was recovering, he was diagnosed with a hemangiocarcoma in his spleen. We lost him 10 days after the diagnosis. I miss him every day. Anything you can do to fight cancer would be appreciated.
Laska was a gentle giant, and a wonderful loving companion. He was fortunate to have been found by George. He will be missed, along with his “woo woo” greeting. Allan, Angie, Wylie and Heidi Hess
I wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone at Frankie’s Friends. We had a 9 and a half year old English bulldog named Rocky who ended up at the vet with some breathing problems. A few visits to the vet were somewhat inconclusive, and the bills were really piling up. Without a foundation like Frankie’s friends we would have never been able to afford to get all the testing done necessary to find out what was really going with our special guy. This was already an incredibly trying […]
Our Rufis was a beautiful, perfect Pug that made us smile everyday! We miss him so much, he will live forever in our hearts. Thank you Rufis for bringing 11 years of joy to our home! Love, Ray, Pam, Nick and Mike xoxoxo
In honor of Mia, Dr. Mourning and Betsy
Cali was a sweet and gentle girl who loved everyone and was loved by everyone who met her. Her strong will to live helped her to fight for so long without ever seeming to mind. She was very special to many and will be missed dearly. Her memory will live on in all of the lives of those she touched.
My friends lost both of their dearly loved fur babies this year, and I hope that this memorial will give them a bit of comfort.
Shiloh was a gorgeous Alaskan Malamute with a very big heart. He was a big dog who loved his human companion, Keith. We lost Shiloh quite unexpectedly when he was found to have a mass on his spleen and in his liver. Shiloh was a big, lumbering dog who used to chase Keith around the kitchen island and he always poked at my brother in such a playful way. Shiloh had his own place at the table where he loved pieces of bread as a treat. That dog loved bread. […]
Koyo Lynn was our grand dog who passed with last month due to cancer. Koyo’s owners did everything they could to provide comfort to her for over nine months. Koyo was a perfect pet whose loyalty and good training made her a joy to be around. She was a lucky dog! No dog was better loved or cared for throughout her life.
In loving memory of Tina 5.11.1998 – 07.04.2014
Sadie was my parents beloved family dog who passed away this year from cancer. She’d survived several extra years after having one of her front legs removed to prevent the spread of the disease. And she really lived a full life even after losing her leg. Sweet Sadie is missed by all who knew her.
Diesel…I want you to know that you are missed every day, buddy. When you became sick it was a struggle to pay for your care. I hope this donation in your memory helps somebody just focus on being able to provide the care that is needed and not what it costs.
Roo, aka Doodal, Hims, Hims-Doodle, Rooster, Rooster-Doodle-Scooch, and Peanut — among other nicknames — was a five-pound little man who went to ‘big-dog heaven’ in April, where he joined his Uncle Mojo. We almost lost him in 2009, when the staff at BluePearl saved his lifeby performing extensive surgery. After two stays in the ICU, we took him home to enjoy five more happy years. On the nights he was in the ICU, I would call and talk to the people caring for him, only to learn that he had […]
Thank you, Sarge, for 15 years of companionship and love. You will live in my heart forever.
Beloved family member of Scarlett Collins and Jeff Joyner.
Dear Frankie’s Friends and The Zeus Varis Fund, A while ago you approved me and my dog Mia for a grant to help us with her cancer treatment. I can’t tell you what a relief that was for me. Mia and I have been together for 9 years. I found her at the Houston SPCA when she was just a few weeks old (see the pics!) and we’ve been best friends ever since. She’s an amazing, intelligent, intuitive, strong, loving animal. She was doing amazingly well after her first treatment — […]
I wanted to Thank you all for taking such good care of Mattie. I felt confident Mattie was in the best of hands during her surgery. I was worried Blue Pearl was going to be a large and impersonal hospital, and that was not the case. We felt so welcomed at your clinic and at ease. Even Mattie didn’t mind walking through your door. I wish things could have turned out different, but I am grateful for the 40 extra days she lived after her surgery. We made the most […]
Maddie was a baby I had for 13 years. She contracted cancer and i had to put her to sleep. She was a very loving pet and she is deeply missed.
Ellen Morgan died on April 7th, 2014. We met her in Mexico . Together, we rescued as many cats and dogs as we could over several years there. Ellen had an indomitable spirit. She took the most horrible situations in stride with an irrepressible smile. She requested contributions in her name be made to Frankie’s Friends. Thank you for all your hard work.
