Welcome to Saving Gracie!
An Angel Fund for Pets
At Saving Gracie, our mission is simple and it comes from the heart:
We heal human hearts and the pets who love them by providing grants for emergency veterinary treatment.
Saving Gracie is a 501(c)3 non-profit public charity whose goal is to provide life-saving treatment to pets in a variety of California counties. We seek to help save pets whose families are facing the heartbreaking option of economic euthanasia because they can’t afford emergency veterinary medical care for their pet.
Saving Gracie’s unique program addresses both human welfare and animal welfare by working to preserve the health-giving bond that exists between humans and their pets. We provide pet owners with grants for all or a portion of emergency life-saving veterinary procedures for their beloved pets. We never want anyone to face the heartbreaking choice of economic euthanasia simply because they can’t afford the cost of treatment.
The benefit to the pets is clear. They can live a fuller, healthier, pain-free life with the care we help fund. The benefits to the pet owner are not commonly considered. Research studies confirm what pet owners already know – that pets offer comfort and critical mental health support.
Research from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Human-Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) further reinforces the importance of the human-animal bond and the amazing benefits it has for pet owners, citing in particular:
- Reduced anxiety and stress
- Lower blood pressure
- Decreased risk of heart disease
- Prevention of allergies in children
- Support for children with autism
- Help for veterans with PTSD
- Increased social interaction
- Support for a longer life

If you have a pet that is in need of life-saving treatment and you do not have the financial means to pay for veterinary care, please fill out our Apply for Help application and we will reach out to your veterinarian for next steps.

Chippy & Ké’s Love Story
Today, Chippy is a happy and healthy kitty after receiving treatment for a life-threatening condition called Feline Urethral Obstruction. Saving Gracie’s Angel Fund was able to help his mommy, Ké, a local musician.
“After a few weeks, Chippy was his old happy self again! He was happy to be home with his brother, Guinness. He is so grateful to Saving Gracie for giving him a 2nd chance at life.”
– Ké Marie, Chippy’s Mom
