Lizzy’s Fund, a registered 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to making a meaningful impact in the lives of senior dogs residing in shelters and rescues. Since its establishment in 2012, the nonprofit has unwaveringly committed itself to supporting these aging canine companions.
Lizzy’s Fund’s primary mission revolves around providing unwavering care to senior dogs, with the ultimate goal of restoring their health and, more significantly, finding them forever homes. This mission is realized through the organization’s financial support for a range of vital services, including:
- Veterinary care: The organization covers the costs of medical treatments and necessary surgeries to ensure senior dogs receive the care and attention they deserve.
- Dental care: Acknowledging the importance of dental health to a dog’s overall well-being, Lizzy’s Fund addresses dental issues to maintain radiant smiles.
- Grooming: The organization offers grooming services to ensure that senior dogs are healthy but also comfortable and well-groomed.
- Medications: Lizzy’s Fund recognizes the significance of managing various health conditions and, therefore, covers the costs of essential medicines.
- Integrative Alternative care: Exploring holistic and alternative treatments, the organization enhances the quality of life for senior dogs.
Supporting senior dogs
Since its inception, Lizzy’s Fund has made a significant difference in the lives of over 500 senior dogs. The organization has been a beacon of hope for these animals, providing the necessary care and support to guide them toward a brighter future.
