Caiden Rose

Caiden Rose

“I rescued my sweet Caiden Rose as a 7 week old puppy that was facing being put down due to her owners lack of medical care. She was dropped and her front leg broken. Her breeder chose to duck tape her leg to a popsicle stick. As she grew.. the tape didn’t. At 7 weeks old, part of her leg fell off due to gangrene and she was septic. I heard her story from a friend at her vets office and reached out to help. The breeder signed her over to me. She is my $8000.00 puppy after all her surgeries. That was 10 years ago. She has been my sidekick and love of my life since.  

She recently became very ill with early stage cancerous masses and due to being out of work, I was not able to afford the full cost of the surgery to save her life. The very generous grant I recieved from Rochester Hope For Pets made it possible for me reach the surgery goal and save my sweet girl. I am so thankful and grateful that this foundation exists. If not, my Caiden Rose would only have 6 months to a year to live. Now I have many more years with her. I am beyond thrilled. 

The surgery went well and she is recovering at home.  Rochester Hope For Pets will forever have my and Caiden Rose’s deepest gratitude. Thank you does not express our feeling for the people behind the scenes at RHFP who made this possible. God bless you all. Keep up the amazing work. You are not only saving our pets lives..But you are saving families from heartbreak over the loss of a pet due to financial reasons.”

Lilly

Lilly has struggled with dental issues her whole life, and needed to have a third dental procedure performed to make her mouth more comfortable. She was obviously in pain, but her mom, having her own medical bills, couldn’t afford the whole procedure. We made an award for Lilly to get her teeth taken care of, and afterward, Lillys’ mom said, “Thank you so much! I want you to know how appreciative Lilly is for this $300 award. (I’m in tears because it’s more than I even expected if anything at all). I hope that I may somehow reciprocate in the future. I know she’s had a rough life and I’ve been giving her so much of my love to make up for that lost time.”

We’re so glad you’re feeling better little Lilly! 

Sadie

“She is in need of a full frontal leg amputation due to cancer. We are just a regular middle class family who lives paycheck to paycheck.”

Sweet Sadie’s family applied to RHFP for help paying for her needed leg amputation. We were happy to make an award to help Sadie kick cancer, and we were so happy to receive a follow up email saying “Sadie had her surgery and is home and doing well. Thanks again for your help.♥️”

We know that COVID has depleted many families’ savings. When a major veterinary bill comes, families have few places to turn. We’re proud to be able to help, and we couldn’t do it without your support and donations.

Jasper

Jasper

“Thank you to Rochester Hope for Pets to enable us to continue to have our Jasper as a whole dog. As an older couple on a fixed income, the expense of a repair surgery for Jasper seemed insurmountable.

Rescued, Jasper came to us as a promise to a family member who could no longer care for him into our lives 5 years ago. He has been a wonderful loving addition to our family with the only regret being that his name should have been “Tigger”. He is a bouncy guy even at the age of 8 leading to his need for cruciate ligament repair surgery.

We are so grateful for Rochester Hope for Pets and their support to get us funds to help cover his surgery. He is recovering well and continues to be the loving boy we know and love!

Thank you very much to everyone who supported us from Rochester Hope for Pets.”

Tom-tom

Tom-tom

 Today’s Tail of Hope: “Tom-tom was an adult dog we were fostering who ended up being Parvo positive. We adopted him to get him into immediate supportive care at Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Services. The wonderful team there kept him in isolation for 4 days giving him the best attention and care possible. This was a completely unexpected cost, as we already had 4 other dogs and were not looking to adding to that number. With the help of so many generous people in the rescue world, (and a tip to contact Rochester Hope For Pets), we were able to pay the hospital bill, and Tom-tom is now a healthy, welcome addition to our pack 🙂 I plan to give back to RHFP, to help the next person be able to pay for their animal’s necessary care.” We’re so glad you’re feeling better Tom-tom! ❤️

Bandit

Bandit

Bandit was attacked by a neighbor dog which resulted in him having four fractured bones that required surgery. With COVID-19 impacting nearly everyone, Bandit’s family reached out to Rochester Hope for Pets. Bandit’s mom wrote, “We are a young family and hate to ask for help but the cost of the surgery is overwhelming at this time. Bandit is my best friend and his wellbeing means the world to me.”

Our award helped Bandit receive the care he needed, and afterward, his family wrote, “Thank you so very much for your generous grant to assist Bandit in getting the emergency veterinary care he needed. Having a furry family member who needs medical care is so stressful in itself and then to add financial stressors while going through a global pandemic can be overwhelming! We so appreciate your help during this difficult time!!! Bandit had his surgery yesterday and came home today. He is resting comfortably and a full recovery is expected. Thank you again for your help and all that you do!!”
