Each campaign runs for 30 days and begins with a launching gift from the General Fund. When dogs are finished raising funds, they move to the Dogs Funded page. When donations for a dog cannot be used for that dog, they are moved to the General Fund and used to help other dogs fight cancer.

“I am a combat veteran who is fighting to get back some of the life I had prior to going. I have been unable so far, in getting back to my previous financial status, or since my military stint. It is very frustrating and belittling in not being able to do something that had never been a problem – acquiring a living wage position. China has been a god-send in keeping me active and engaged with her need for exercise and mine to get back to dealing with people. She has been my rock during a trying recovery.
China is very important to me, being my family and one of my few friends. I hate the thought of losing her to something that was preventable, had the foresight and means been available. The veterinarian says that China might live a quality life for an additional year with treatment.
I am asking for your assistance while we fight this heartbreaking disease for China.”

“We adopted Bailey from a rescue in September 2014, at 8 years old, with the hope of giving her a joyful life on our farm. Her previous life was a rough one, and we were prepared to show her an abundant amount of love to make up for the hardships she had faced.
Over the past two years, Bailey has changed from a timid pup to a bubbly, loving, family dog. Bailey enjoys daily farm chores and she loves relaxing in “her chair” as her family bustles around the house. She is our angel. She has brought our family so much joy!
In June, we noticed a bump. Our vet oncologist diagnosed mammary cancer, but is optimistic about Bailey’s chances of survival. She will need chemo and possibly surgery.
As the vet reviewed the costs, we knew in our hearts we can’t afford it, but we are determined to give Bailey a fighting chance. Please help us!”

“Simba is my best friend. I have had Simba since August of 2008, just 2 months after he was born. From the first time I saw him I fell in love and knew he would be the greatest addition to my family. Simba has been by my side throughout the years and my many surgeries. Although he is not an official “working dog,” Simba has been of service to my daughter who has challenges with PTSD, anxiety and depression. He means more to us than anyone can imagine.
Devastatingly, our Simba was diagnosed with lymphoma and requires chemotherapy to get better. I am disabled and have exhausted my funds doing all I can for his medication and treatment. It is unbearable to think of Simba being sick and suffering. I will be eternally grateful for any help you can offer for Simba. The diagnosis of cancer literally took the breath out of me. If you can help us, I will feel like I can breathe again.”

“I have had Roxy for 7 1/2 years and she means the world to me. She gets me out of the apartment, which we both need. She has her own personality. When I walk her, if she wants to go a different way she puts on the brakes and looks the other way, and then she directs me which way to go. I let her have that control and I think she is very funny. If she wants to be in control, that is fine with me.
When I got the diagnosis I was shocked. She is such a healthy dog. I have never felt so discouraged and alone in my life. I am on disability and I don’t have any money left over by the end of the month. The Magic Bullet Fund gives me hope for Roxy. We will be so grateful for any donations for Roxy’s treatment. It brings tears to my eyes when she looks up at me with that special look. I don’t have any friends and a limited family. I need your help.”

“Lilly is my husband’s dream dog. She does not have service dog training but shortly after getting her, she learned many of my Husbands PTSD, TBI, and seizure cues. She provides many of the functions of a service dog such as keeping him seated when he is super stressed by sitting on his legs or laying across his lap for him to pet her. Lilly was diagnosed with Lymphoma when we noticed a swelling on the inside of her back leg. There was never a question we were going to have her treated. We have a responsibility to her just like one of our children. Unfortunately we are limited in our funds because we recently took on two kinship foster children in addition to our four children. We researched organizations that aid animals with cancer and are eternally grateful to the Magic Bullet Fund and all who donate to help sweet Lilly. You are helping a disabled Veteran get a more time with his lifeline.”
