Teioh

“We were at an end in being able to get care for my baby and then you came out of nowhere, giving us back our kitty’s life.  When they brought him to me after four days of being apart, he gingerly crawled up on my shoulder and tucked his head under my chin.  When he does that now at home, with his baby clothes on to protect his incision, and that silly cone around his neck, I still cry realizing how grateful I am to have all my family together as we weather all the changes in our lives. ”

Hemi

“When Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund made his surgery possible, I was beyond grateful. I would’ve lost him. I couldn’t have done it by myself. And now with being furloughed not only am I thankful from a financial standpoint but also because rather than facing this with a grieving heart, I’m getting through it with snuggles from my baby boy.”

Baron

“We were terrified when Baron was struggling to breathe. We rushed to get him help but we also knew we are facing huge medical bills for my husband and we were worried we couldn’t afford to save our baby. I was scared that if he lost Baron, my husband would lose his will to keep fighting his cancer. You can’t imagine what it was like to find out Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund was going to pay Baron’s bills. It felt like an angel came down from heaven. We can never thank you enough for keeping our family whole.”

Parker

“Parker was suffering. I want to give my animals everything I can, but I have a limited income. It was unbelievable to me when Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund said they would help. I was speechless. I just cried from joy. I had never even heard of this fund and here they are helping me out in time of need. I can’t thank the supporters of Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund enough for what they did for my sweet precious Parker. Thank you for giving me back my comfort, my baby. I appreciate it more than words can say.”

Ninja

“I will be forever grateful for the nurses and doctors that helped my kitty survive, but they wouldn’t have been able to do it without the generosity of all the people who support Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund. They gave us part of our family back, and made our family’s tragedy much less tragic. I will never forget what they did for us. Many miracles had to happen for Ninja to survive. Thank you everyone!”

Dash

“We love our sweet, tiny Dash. We didn’t hesitate to spend the funds to get him emergency treatment. But we were in a spot when he obstructed again and we had run out of funds. It would’ve been devastating to be forced to stop treatment now. Thank you for helping to save our boy. You have kept our family together.”

Cosmo

“My Cosmo is everything to me. I’d do anything for him but on my limited income, I couldn’t make money appear. Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund was the answer to my prayers. I am humbled to have been helped to keep our family together. I can’t believe that strangers give money to help people like me in our time of need. If I’d lost Cosmo it would have felt like losing my son all over again. You are such a blessing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
