ABOUT Frankie’s Friends
Frankie’s Friends is a 501(c)(3), non-profit foundation dedicated to finding cures and saving pets with cancer and other life-threatening illness and injuries. The foundation was started in 1998 by veterinarian Neil Shaw who found that few alternatives exist for the large number of pets from loving and responsible families who simply are unable to pay fully for an unexpected illness. Based on each individual case, families always provide some contribution of funds for their pets’ care. Funds raised through Halos & Heartbeats will assist families who demonstrate substantial financial need and whose pets have a good prognosis for recovery to a normal quality of life for a reasonable period of time. In the NYC metropolitan area, pets being assisted by Frankie’s Friends are treated at BluePearl Veterinary Partner in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. BluePearl further discounts the cost of treatments for pets funded by Frankie’s Friends.
