“We’re so thankful that Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund is giving us the best chance to get Jax through his surgery complications. We are financially strained already from the huge vet bills we’ve paid to get this far. I would do anything I could to keep Jax in my life. He’s truly my best friend. It means so much to our family that there are other people who want to help us keep him in our lives.”

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.”

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.”

“I’ve often told my family that when I bury Sophie, they’re going to have to bury me with her. I just can’t imagine living without her. Because of ERDF I don’t have to. Sophie was able to get the immediate care she needed and I know we will be able to share many more years of joy and cuddling. Thank you to every one of you that donates to help make that possible.”

Bella

“I did not know what to do, but I continued to pray and to save any little bit of extra money I could.  Then our vet contacted Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund, the answer to my prayers.  Currently we are in the middle of testing to see what can be done for our girl.   No matter how this all turns out, I could not be more grateful for the BLESSING of just simply having the hope that’s being provided by all of you who support Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund.”

Brody

“Brody has his whole life ahead of him! The specialist said he could fix him up so that he could move as well as before. But it looked like finances were going to stand in the way of that happening. I cried with joy when I found out that Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund was going to help to make my boy whole again. He means everything to us and we just want to tell you we’ll be forever grateful that you saved him from a life of immobility and pain.”

Eddie

“Eddie is my company, my comfort, and my friend. He is the only family I have left. The best days are “super snuggle Saturdays” when I hold him against my chest while relaxing on the couch and we nap or watch TV.  Without Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund, Eddie’s quality of life would’ve been compromised and I might have had to face the isolation of my permanent disability without him.”

Zoey

“When the ER vet told us that Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund would help, a huge weight was lifted off our shoulders. Our sweet angel wasn’t going to wonder what happened yet again. We get to be there for her just the way we desperately wanted to. My husband is back to sitting on the couch so he doesn’t disturb Zoey who’s all curled up in his recliner. I’m back to having my lap completely covered and my face thoroughly “washed”. My sons are back to having 45 pounds of wagging flesh to romp with. Thanks to you our family is still whole.”

Lola

“My girl is back thanks to Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund.  She is back to being the social butterfly that goes to greet everyone.  (You know, she would lick a burglar to death if one broke in J).  She is back to howling with the tornado sirens and asking me to scratch her floppy ears. If you’re a supporter of Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund, thank you for returning Lola’s quality of life and for keeping us able to be the playful, cuddly dog family that every day brings us all joy.”

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. ”

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.”
