Milly is my best friend. When I’ve had a bad day, she makes it better. The thought of losing my best friend would devastate me, and I don’t know how I would go on. It is just so rewarding to come home and always see her sweet face, so happy to see me. I grew up in foster care, and having Milly is my closest thing to a family.
I am currently unemployed because of a car accident, and I could never afford to pay for the surgery she needs. I hope and pray that with help from generous people like you, I will be able to get Milly’s cancer removed. I hope and pray that she and I can spend many more years together. Thank you for reading our story, and thank you for any donation you can offer.

The most special thing about Charlie is he never met a stranger. When I first got Charlie, I took him to the dog park in Gladwyne, PA. It also has trails to walk off leash with your pet. Charlie got ahead of me and was following another family. They had little children. As the parents opened their minivan, Charlie hopped inside to go home with them! I was surprised but not shocked because Charlie loves everyone.
Learning that Charlie had cancer was devastating because Charlie is my emotional support dog. I am a disabled veteran who suffers from PTSD. I cannot imagine my life without him. Several years ago. I was at my lowest, and when I was in the ER, I realized that I almost didn't make it. The reality of leaving Charlie alone permanently helped me realize that I needed to turn my life around. I now have a positive outlook and am happy and grateful for every day.
I am on a fixed budget and have exhausted all my funds to help keep Charlie living his best life. I need your help to continue Charlie's treatment. I offer my heartfelt gratitude to anyone who can donate to keep Charlie alive.
5-year-old Staffordshire Terrier

Family: Jayson and Lori Miller, Tamarac FL
Annabelle is a 5-year-old Staffordshire Terrier mix. We adopted her from Good Karma Pet Rescue as a puppy. She loves to run at the dog park, snuggle, give kisses, splash in the ocean, and get her head scratched. She is an affectionate, playful, intelligent dog. Her silly antics make us smile after a stressful day.
This June, sweet Annabelle was diagnosed with large cell lymphosarcoma, an aggressive cancer of the lymphatic system. I went through this nightmare ten years ago with another dog, so I was initially in denial. That feeling quickly became crushing devastation- Annabelle is my world, and she is so young. It’s not fair! However, with my husband’s support, we decided to face the problem and help her fight rather than wallow in self-pity. We began treatment the same day we saw the oncologist.
I teach children with autism, and my husband is a recruiter. Although the cost of living has skyrocketed in south Florida, my salary has only increased by 1% annually. We do not have enough money in savings to cover the cost of chemotherapy for our precious girl. Please help us save her by donating to The Magic Bullet Fund. Our baby girl is worth it. Thank you very much!
BANDIT VAN AVERY
8-year-old Blue Heeler
Adenocarcinoma - Anal Sac
In MBF: 7/20/22
Campaign Ends: 8/21/22
Family: Robert Van Avery, Gloversville, NY
Bandit is much more than just a fur baby; he is my boy and best friend. I adopted Bandit out of Bideawee Animal Shelter in Manhattan. His mother, Sadie, was rescued from Alabama (she was about to be euthanized pregnant). Shortly after bringing Bandit to his forever home, I learned he was deaf. I believe this made me love on him even more!! Our favorite thing to do is go camping! Bandit LOVES being outdoors, and we frequently visit many lakes here in the Adirondacks!
A few years ago, before Covid hit, Bandit was a favorite at our local nursing home!! Joan, a resident, took to him the most. It was incredible to see the elderly residents’ reactions when we came to visit. He warmed many hearts!♥️
When I learned Bandit had cancer, part of my soul evaporated. Unfortunately, dollar signs are a massive worry as I’m a single-pay household, and I just had back surgery at the time. I’ve never reached out for help, but I had to swallow my pride and do everything possible to ensure he gets the care he needs and deserves.
We are asking for donations and will be forever humbled and grateful for this. Bandit has much quality of life left, and I’m filled with joy realizing many great folks contribute when others are experiencing an unfortunate time. We thank you from the depths of our hearts for any donations that come in for Bandit’s care.💙🐾
12-year-old Yorkie/Schnauzer Mix

Family: Ingrid DiMarino, Cleveland Heights, OH
Simon is my world! I look forward to each day because of him. He is what keeps me going in life. I couldn't ask for a better dog. I adopted him after my dog Snoopy died of nasal cancer. My 80-year-old mom, my sister, and Simon are my family.
Simon has liver cancer. He weighs only 20 pounds, but the tumor is the size of a cantaloupe! He can only eat small amounts of food at a time because there just isn't room in his little body. He spends a lot of time looking around for food because he is hungry. It hurts me not to be able to feed him a full meal so he can be comfortable. I will be so happy to give my little boy the full meals he wants after this tumor is removed. But I cannot afford the surgery fee. Due to Covid, I had to leave my job as a corrections officer. I suffer from depression and am limited in the work I can do.
Simon needs this surgery to save his life. If he doesn’t get surgery, the tumor will rupture, and he will die from internal bleeding. So, we are really in a hurry to get the surgery done! The vet said that if this tumor is removed, he could live a normal life.
Please donate to help save Simon! We are so grateful for all the help you can give - Simon and I thank you so much!

Harley came into our lives about two years ago, at the height of the pandemic. Many dog tracks in our area were shutting down, so many retired race greyhounds needed homes. My first memory of Harley is walking in to meet her, and her walking past my wife and me, and nuzzling and licking our one-year-old son. She's been with us ever since.
Finding out that Harley has lung cancer was extremely painful for me. My mother passed away of the same cancer right around the same time we brought Harley home. We never for a moment questioned IF we would help her, just HOW we would save her. However, these expenses could not have come at a worse time, as we just brought home a newborn baby. The surgery aspect has completely depleted our savings.
She has already had surgery and is recovering well but needs several months of chemo to finish saving her life. By donating to the Magic Bullet Fund, we can keep Harley in our family, surrounded by love. We thank you for your kindness and generosity!
7-year-old Hound Mix
Mast Cell Tumor

Family: Paige Lipscomb, Charlottesville VA
Dottie came into my life through fostering at my local shelter. Dottie was emaciated, had never been properly taken care of, and hadn’t lived inside a home for at least a very long time. But she was the sweetest and most welcoming dog I’ve ever met. It was amazing. I will never understand how dogs who are treated so poorly still desire love from people. She was the perfect fit, and I quickly knew this would be a foster fail.
After officially adopting her, one very short month goes by, and Dottie is diagnosed with cancer. Suddenly, I’m told that she has maybe six months left to live if I don’t get her very expensive treatments. This was shocking and traumatic, and I couldn’t believe that I might not be able to help her because of money. I decided right then and there to fight for her!
Fortunately, I found the Magic Bullet Fund, which has so kindly and generously offered to help Dottie. I couldn’t think of a dog in my life who is more deserving of a chance to live her life to the fullest extent possible. Her life before me was awful, and I’m determined to give her a great life moving forward.
Dottie and I are so immensely grateful for any help you can provide. Please donate if you feel touched by Dottie’s story. Thank you!
11-year-old Black Cat - Shorthair
Adenocarcinoma - Left Ear
In MBF: 7/10/22
Campaign Ends: 8/20/22
Family: Heather Pinckard and Jayme Styger, Beaverton OR
Squishy immediately enchants everyone who meets him. From me, who has loved him from the day he walked up to me on the street, to the contractor who was only in our apartment for 45 minutes, Squishy insisted he needed bathing. I have never heard this cat hiss or growl, and every vet he meets can't hear his heartbeat over his purrs. He is everything to this family - our family isn't complete without him.
He had a chronic ear infection for a year and a half before we discovered it was cancer. It was something antibiotics couldn't cure. He takes every treatment and procedure like a champ, but we are devastated. It is not fair that a gentle and kind kitty has to go through this, yet he does it purring.
Unfortunately, we can't raise the money for this procedure. We've exhausted our savings for the appointments, the antibiotics, and the biopsy that diagnosed cancer, but the actual surgery to remove the tumor is impossible for us to raise. Please donate whatever you can - and thank you! We greatly appreciate whatever you can do!
