Back in 2012, my husband Peter and I lost our 1-year-old French Bulldog, Bizzy, due to a very sudden and unexpected illness. After spending a week with our veterinarian, working tirelessly on medical treatments to try to get her well, we came to understand just how expensive critical care really is. We were fortunate enough to be able to try everything possible and this experience made us think more about the animals in a similar position who are rescued and sheltered by SPCA Cincinnati

In 2014, when we learned that SPCA Cincinnati takes extraordinary measures to provide successful outcomes, we were inspired to create the Bizzy Fund.  The mission of the Bizzy Fund is to provide funding to help these extraordinary cases and provide life-altering treatment to impact the lives of even more SPCA Cincinnati shelter animals in need of medical care, extensive surgeries, orthopedics, intensive around-the-clock care, or other measures necessary.

It is our belief that every animal should have a second chance at life and it gives us joy knowing that so many animals in need of extraordinary medical treatment are saved through this Fund with the help of the hardworking SPCA Cincinnati staff, volunteers, and foster care families.  There is nothing more satisfying than seeing these innocent animals healthy, happy and on their way to loving homes.

Although Bizzy is not here with us today, her legacy lives on through each and every animal touched by this Fund. 

SPCA Cincinnati works hard to save each animal’s life and we invite you to join us in fulfilling our mission.  If you wish to give to the Bizzy Fund, you can do so here, and please let us know in the notes section.  If you are sending your gift through the mail, simply indicate that you would like your gift to go to the Bizzy Fund.

We thank you for your consideration in allowing us to take extraordinary measures for these extraordinary cases, because SPCA Cincinnati values the lives of each and every animal they care for.
