Magic Bullet Fund helps people who have made room in their homes and hearts for a feline or canine companion, but do not have the financial resources to provide cancer treatment. Every day, 20,000 cats and dogs are diagnosed with cancer. There are many dedicated owners who are not financially prepared to pay the astronomical fees necessary for cancer treatment. As of 12/31/19, Magic Bullet Fund has helped 700 dogs and their owners. As of 1/1/20, the fund opened its doors to receive applications from CAT owners who need assistance for feline cancer treatments.
Magic Bullet Fund (MBF) provides financial assistance for cat and dog cancer treatment only when the family is unable to pay for treatment. We help only when the pet would not be able to have (or complete) cancer treatment without our assistance. Most families contribute some portion of the treatment fees and MBF contributes the amount that the family cannot pay.
MBF accepts cases when we can reasonably believe that treatment can add a year of quality life for the pet. When funds raised for a dog cannot be used for that pet’s treatment, they will help MBF provide assistance for other pets with cancer. Funds are not used for past due balances, treatment for other health issues, palliative care or euthanasia.
We help real life cats and dogs, working with the families and veterinarians, to ensure that they receive the treatment they need. MBF does not fund research; we do not promise to find a cure for pet cancer. To the caretaker of a pet with cancer, the focus is not on advancing medical science or curing cancer. The focus is on sparing or prolonging the life of a beloved companion.
