Who has Zoey's Fund helped?

BulletBulletBullet

Bullet likes to eat! Bullet like to eat bologna ... even when it's still wrapped. One day he ate a bologna wrapper which still had the heavy twine attached, requiring foreign body removal surgery.

Thanks to Zoey's Fund, Bullet was able to receive the surgery he needed and has fully recovered today.



Izzy

IzzyIzzyIzzy is a 6-year-old cat whose herpes virus became so advanced that his nose would swell and cake shut with mucus. His teeth were rotting and his eyes hurt him almost too much to clean.

Now, His breath is improved, his ears do not bother him at all, and his eyes do not drain like they did. He has a 'smile' again. He can breathe and eat much better now, and he has become a kitten all over again.
