Our corporate and individual partners contribute to our goal of finding cures and saving pets with cancer and other devastating diseases, in ways Frankie’s Friends could not do on our own. They help spread the word about our work and generate financial support for our programs. In turn, our corporate partners impact many, many animals’ lives through their involvement with Frankie’s Friends, in ways the partners could not do on their own.
“I applaud the great work that Frankie’s Friends is doing to help companion animals and their families and am so grateful that they now have a presence in Tennessee.” - Emmylou Harris
“I’m so grateful for the care and dedication that Frankie’s Friends and Bonaparte’s Retreat (Emmylou Harris’ rescue) exhibit by making life a little bit easier for animals whose lives have been difficult. Efforts like theirs can and do make a difference. Each of us can help in some small way for those animals who give us so much in return.” - Betty White
Ellen DeGeneres and Halo, Purely for Pets®
Halo pet food’s Liv-a-Littles™ all-natural treats were donated and sold at BluePearl Veterinary Partner hospitals to raise money for Frankie’s Friends. Emmy Award-winning Ellen DeGeneres, an owner of Halo, donated a truckload of Halo’s pet treats to Frankie’s Friends to help the cause when Dr. Neil Shaw appeared on her nationally syndicated talk show and appeared in People magazine as a Hometown Hero.
Artwork by John Cannon
Frankie’s Friends is thrilled to be working with artist John Cannon, to raise awareness of the devastating impact that diseases have on pets and their families. Cannon was inspired by our organization to paint this specific portrait; he named it “Frankie’s Friend.” This piece, along with several other pet portraits and artwork will be on display throughout summer at BluePearl Veterinary Partners pet hospital located in Brentwood, Tennessee. Thirty percent of the artwork proceeds will be donated to Frankie’s Friends. There will also be 8×10” and full size prints available, with proceeds going to Frankie’s Friends.
