Skye

“Thank goodness for the donors of Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund! My granddaughter lives on Social Security Disability. It took all she and we had to get that surgery done. Without you, Mochi wouldn’t have the rehab sessions and underwater treadmill that are her only chance to be able to walk again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving Mochi and Chelsea a chance. We ALL thank you for supporting their very special love.”

Toothless

"It means more than I can put into words. My Toothless is the love of my life. He’s my boy, my family, my son. I can’t imagine being robbed of having a life with him by my side simply because I couldn’t afford a lifesaving surgery. I’d sell everything I own to save him. So, you donors of this fund are lifesavers. Both for him and for me."

Toby E.

“Toby is my best friend. I’ve never felt more like I was letting someone down, not being able to give back to him the way he gives to everyone else—and always to me. Life would be so empty and lonely without him. A million thank yous to all the people who give to make a miracle like yours happen. You have not only saved his life but the quality of mine as well.”

Scooby

“To have our boy saved by dog lovers we don’t even know was unbelievable. Every one of you who donates is a guardian angel. We are grateful beyond words. It would have been a disaster for our family to have lost our Scooby. We will donate our Christmas bonus for the rest of our life to pass on the blessing you have given to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Lilly Rose

“When our vet told us there were people who donate to Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund so that families wouldn’t have to make heartbreaking decisions, we were amazed. You have given a young dog the chance to have a life—a normal, active life. You have given a young girl the gift of continuing to grow up surrounded by her dog’s love. And you have given us a reminder of the goodness of humanity. You are a Godsend!”

“It felt like the end of the world when I had to give her to my cousin. And then after my happiness at getting her back, to have her get so sick and need surgery was terrifying. Your people are such a blessing! Without you, I wouldn’t have my furry lap warmer, my constant companion—my inspiration for living. Thank you for blessing me with the healthy return of my baby.”

“I want to thank each one of you who helped her to get back to a happier life. Now she can get her favorite belly rubs without fear of pain. And in the future, if everyone donates (which I will do as soon as I can), we could stop sad stories of people having to say goodbye to their best friend because they can’t pay the bill.”

Jett

“We thought we would have to put our beloved Jett down because we couldn’t afford the surgery to unblock him so he could urinate again. He was in so much pain and he looked just terrible. All I could do was cry. Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund, and all of you that donate to it, are a prayer answered. You will never truly know how much you have done for our family. Bless you. We are FOREVER grateful!”

I can't tell you what this exactly means to us because we can't even express the feeling after going through so many tragic events, but I can say that we are thankful for a program like this, for those who need it, because Gram probably wouldn’t have pulled through without you. Especially on behalf of my daughter, but from the rest of us as well, we want to thank you for preventing us suffering even more tragedy and loss.”

“I’m fiercely independent. I’ve always paid my own way. But I cried when I was told that Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund was going to help us. Those scammers stole my money, and if it wasn’t for your donors, they would’ve stolen my family too. Bless you for keeping that from happening.”

Lupin (Mowie)

“I was never a cat person but this sweet boy has become my third child. During the two months I was in bed because I was so weak from COVID and then having a heart attack, Mowie is what got me through. With no paycheck for those two months, when he needed surgery, I was sure it was over. I just laid in bed and cried because I felt like I was killing him. I felt I had nowhere to turn and I’d be forced to just let him die. But then you amazing people swooped in and saved us. I can never tell you what it means that you saved my best friend, my other child”

Lil Bit

“We desperately wanted to try to save her but living on a widow’s social security benefits, and already paying to care for my Mom, didn’t leave me any options. That is, until the folks who support Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund stepped in. Now our baby will have the surgery that will keep us all together for as long as possible. Thank you for giving Lil Bit a chance and for keeping Mom and me together with the pup we adore.”

Darla

“You saved her life.  When the vet came back, we we’re ready to tell him we’d have to put her down.  It wasn’t fair.  She was so young.  My kids think of her as a sibling. There were so many memories still to make with her.  And now thanks to your supporters, we’ll get to make them.  There are no words to express the depth of our gratitude, or what your kindness truly means to us and our girls.”
