Luke

“Luke is no longer in pain. He will likely be able to move normally and resume his kitten antics once he heals. That’s all thanks to generous people we don’t even know who use Ellie’s Fund as a way to help other families who love pets like they do. I’ve lived with pets since I was 5 years old. I can’t imagine life without them. Now, they are our kids. Through this troubling time in my life, by helping my fur baby, you are keeping me from being lonely. You are giving me a big dose of hope. Thank you. You are a Godsend.”

Roscoe

“We had no idea how we were going to afford to help Roscoe, and weren't sure if we had to make a choice to put him down. That was an unbearable choice for us, until Dr McKinsey mentioned there might be a way to have his foreign object surgery without needing to put him down. It felt like a parachute being thrown to us. To the donors of Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund we say, thank you for your kindness. You have literally kept our family together and we will never forget your generosity.”

Link

“We were able to keep our sweet boy—in the midst of my being furloughed and my son’s hours being cut due to COVID-- because people give money to Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund to help keep families like ours together. I can’t begin to express what that has meant to me. I just lost my Dad in March, and my Father-In-Law late last year. Family means everything to me. Thank you so much for preventing tragedy and giving us more years of love.”
