The Frankie Fund was established in 2003 in honor of Frankie VanSeveren. Frankie was a 10 year-old rescued greyhound who was not only a patient, but a friend. Frankie’s kind heart and gentle personality made him very easy to work with and love. Frankie helped a countless number of pets and their families by becoming a blood donor. Not only did the VanSeverens allow Frankie to donate blood, they covered the costs of blood collection stating, “Any dog that needed a transfusion would already have many expenses.” The VanSeveren family’s selflessness and Frankie’s willingness to help others truly made an impact on us all.
The purpose of The Frankie Fund is to help offset the cost for rescued animals or dedicated families that have reached their financial limit in extremely complex illnesses or accidents. The Frankie Fund is funded solely by hospital and client contributions. 100% of donations collected directly help pets in need.
