Ellie Mae's Story:

Ellie Mae has been diagnosed with a rare and very difficult to treat condition called Evans Syndrome. It is a combination of anemia (low red blood cell count) and thrombocytopenia (low platelet count). Ellie first got sick in march of 2013 and we were able to catch her quickly and get her back to pretty normal. But then on thanksgiving day(which fell on her birthday this year...) we were camping with family for the holiday when Ellie woke up and I took her to go out to the bathroom and she collapsed. My fiancé and I spent the day watching over her until we could get her to the vet. 

upon reaching a doctor her red blood cell count had dropped dangerously low and she was struggling to breathe and was very very weak. We had 2 options...blood transfusion or euthanasia. We opted to give her another chance and went with the transfusion. She has spent the last 2 weeks in and out of the hospital under strict veterinary supervision. Has had 2 transfusions, a chemotherapy treatment to boost platelets, and is on 9 different medications morning and evening.  

We are doing everything we can to help our little angel but costs are adding up and we are getting to the point where it is getting away from us and we are reaching out for help. Any bit will help. We have to pay for constant vet care, 2 ER visits and chronic daily medications that are very expensive. 

Thank you so much for reading about our little Ellie. She is a trooper and absolutely means the world to my fiancé and I. 


All Chances complete 30 days after they are first Submitted for Verification by the Pet Owner. The reason they end at all is because credit card refunds must be issued if the funds cannot be raised and, therefore, the treament will not be provided.

So, if a Chance will not be fulfilled by a doctor/provider within 30 days, the money must be refunded to the people who made donations.

Shortly before the Chance completion date Pet Chance will try to work with the doctor/provider to see if the treatment can be fulfilled with partial funding.

Our goal is to fullfil as many Chances as possible!

We call it Pet Care Assurance...

At Pet Chance, our goal is to empower pet owners to make the right decisions for their pets. By funding Chances where owners have already incurred debt we are giving the next owner facing that daunting decision confidence to provide their pet with the care it needs.

The more Chances where treatment was already provided to get funded, the more likely it is owners (and vets) will make the right medical decision first, and handle the financial obligation after the fact.
