Rose’s Fund – At Rose’s Fund we are sensitive to the fact that it takes more than love to save a life, and all animals deserve a chance. We will financially assist, to the best of our ability, pet owners and Good Samaritans who have an animal with a good prognosis for a healthy life, but are at a financial loss. Our goal is to help make that difficult decision come from your heart, not from your pocket. No one should ever have to choose between medical care and euthanizing their pet. When there is a situation where the pet or found animal has a good chance of being well but the owner or Good Samaritan can’t afford it; Rose’s Fund will to the best of our abilities cover the cost.
