If your cat or dog has cancer and you can’t afford treatment, you are not alone. Many people are in this same situation. Magic Bullet Fund gets a lot of applications and we have to make very hard decisions. We would like to help all of the families who apply, but we cannot.
We provide assistance for the cancer treatments surgery or chemotherapy only. The fund operates only in the U.S. We so not raise funds for experimental treatment or clinical trials. The fund does not provide assistance for other conditions, for treatment that has already been done, cancer treatment after the first course of treatment has failed, palliative care, or euthanasia.
We process applications as quickly as possible. Generally, there is a one to two week waiting time after we have received your application and documents requested. The waiting time often depends on our ability to collect information from your clinic.
This fund does not give grants. We raise donations for each cat and dog in the fund. Owners must participate in fundraising for their pet, to help us raise donations. For those who want to simply receive money, please apply instead to organizations that give grants.
We cannot assist for emergencies. We receive and review the application and then work to raise donations for that pet.
For emergency treatments or when funds are needed within 2 weeks, Magic Bullet Fund cannot help. Apply to other organizations.
