Ellie's Rainy Day Fund

Keeping Pets & People Together

WHO WE ARE

ERDF is a registered non-profit 501c3 Ohio organization that was created to help families keep their medically-challenged pets in the face of financial hardship.

ABOUT US

WHAT WE DO

We preserve, support, and nurture the human/companion animal bond through the funding of veterinary services, education, and animal advocacy in Ohio’s Miami Valley.

OUR MISSION

WHY WE DO IT

Far too often, families are forced to surrender or euthanize their beloved animal companions because they cannot afford the cost of unforeseen medical challenges.

OUR VISION

HOW IT'S DONE

We partner with veterinary practitioners in the Miami Valley area to assist them in offsetting the cost of providing reduced, low or no cost services to clients.

HOW IT WORKS

Chico's Success Story

 

Ellie's Rainy Day Fund knows that animal lovers understand what an important part of the family a pet is. In the face of a medical emergency, there are many folks in the Miami Valley who want to help keep pets with their people! This video features the love story of Chico the pitbull and his family. What a difference such help can make!

 
THIS MONTH'S

Featured Love Stories

  • Since Kahlua and her human are homeless, this sweet pup has never seen a vet. ERDF enabled the removal of several large mammary tumors, healing of systemic infection and reversal of severe anemia so that they could continue to share their love.



    “I’m so glad we could work together. Kahlua and Hairball mean everything to each other. Homeless people are just like everyone else. Their animals are really family for them. Without the help of Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund he would have lost her.”

    KAT, SPCA Volunteer

  • ERDF paid for the diagnostics following surgery after Romeo’s leg was broken in a recliner accident, thus saving his leg from amputation and giving him a chance to regain full mobility.



    “Thank you so much for all your help and mostly for what you do. If not for you, we would be dealing with a huge loss instead of lots of joy. Thank you, Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund. We are forever grateful.”

    ROMEO'S FAMILY

  • Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund helped fix Mabel’s heart so she could continue to share her love.



    “Mabel wouldn’t be with us today if it weren’t for Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund. Mom wouldn’t have understood where her buddy had gone, and it would’ve been such an emotional void for us both without her. Thank you for helping our family to remain whole.”

  • Roller's Love Story

    ERDF funded Roller’s life-saving surgery to help him help the boy who needed him most.



    “The Fund, and those who contribute to it, are all superheros. They swoop in and catch you when you’re falling. And just like that, you regain focus in your whole life and all that you have to be grateful for. They don’t just save a pet, they saved your family member, they saved your faith in humanity.”

    ROLLER'S FAMILY

  • Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund partnered with the hospital to pay the bills and give Starbucks a chance.



    “When the vet told us that Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund had agreed to help Starbucks, we wept. We’d exhausted basically everything we had, and we were both so scared we were going to have to let him go because of the cost. I don’t know how to sufficiently express the gratitude we have. I’m still in a state of stunned disbelief.”
