Dixie Emergency Medical Fund

Dixie’s Emergency Medical Fund is used when a Pet Helper’s animal needs care that is above and beyond regular veterinary care. The fund is named after our beloved Dixie, a Pet Helpers dog who needed extensive surgical and veterinary care when she was rescued. After being treated for her injuries, Dixie lived a remarkable 14 years with her forever family. Dixie’s Fund was established in her honor to help animals just as she was helped. Your donation to the Dixie Emergency Medical Fund supports the Pet Helpers commitment to every animal, no matter what.
