Victory Fund

Give A Transformation Gift of Long-Term Care 

Victory was brought into Orange County Animal Control as a stray. She was in terrible condition.

When we saw her photo, we knew we had to act and get this poor pup to our vet ASAP! The shelter photo didn’t prepare us for what we were about to see or deal with.

Victory was emaciated. She had a grossly enlarged liver and was in complete liver failure. She was also suffering with heart failure, Cardiomyopathy, and lung and mammary cancer. 

She was just 3 years old. And, she suffered on our streets alone.

After an extensive exam, ultrasound, and x-rays, our vet determined that was was irremediably suffering and had no quality of life.

In just a few short hours after we rescued her with hopes that we could provide her with the care she needed so she could live a long, happy life, we had to make the heart wrenching decision to let her go and end her suffering.

Our only solace in all of this is that she didn’t die alone, cold and afraid on our streets or in the shelter. She was surrounded with warmth and love when she passed, and we know now that that was our purpose for her – not to give her a better live, but to give her a better end of life.

After all she suffered through, she deserves to have a legacy, which is why we created The Victory Fund to help more young pets like her who suffer from severe health conditions that would require extensive, life-long care.

There are so many “Victory’s” out there right now who desperately need our help! Her life may have been brief, but her memory will live on in all of the lives she impacted and now in the lives we save in her memory.

When you donate a $250 or more, or set up a monthly recurring donation of $20 or more, you will receive a Victory Bracelet made by former ‘Baywatch’, ‘Knight Rider’ and  ‘Charles in Charge’ costume designer Karen Braverman-Freeman.
