Pay it forward: Animal Emergency Care Fund – Tucson

Posted in Fundraising

Inspiration for Animal Emergency Care Fund

Proceeds from December 2010 Beading Divas to the Rescue bracelets benefit Animal Emergency Care Fund, to help save the lives of Tucson’s pets.

AECF is a new 501 (c)(3) non-profit charity.

Here’s the story: From adversity comes love and a will to “pay it forward.”

A small cat named Chopper had a bad heart and was in danger of failing early in life.  Fortunately, Chopper was saved by an East Coast private foundation that assists pet owners with the high cost of veterinary care. Chopper was one lucky cat to find help in time to save his life.

Growing into a marvelous 14-pound cat, his owners are thankful for the time they had with this special guy.

Because of the kindness of that East Coast foundation, they formed  the Animal Emergency Care Fund  as a love story to their beloved cat.

The goal of Animal Emergency Care Fund is to help pet owners with the high and unexpected costs of emergency vet care, in order to keep families and their pets together longer.
