#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.
Who will you support on Giving Tuesday?
The Chester Foundation was created to aid pets in crisis when their family cannot cover the entire cost of needed emergency services. These unexpected expenses often lead to a heart-breaking decision for pet owners facing financial challenges.
The all-volunteer board of the Chester Foundation is determined that as long as resources are available, the Foundation will make the difference between life saving veterinary services and the loss of a beloved animal companion.
Recently, Katherine faced just that situation when her cat suffered an accident that fractured his jaw.
We rushed him to the Veterinary Hospital where everyone was such an amazing help and told me of a wonder called The Chester Fund. My parents were out of town and I was short on funds that night. They gave my kitty every bit of help they possibly could. Throughout the night that my kitty spent there, I received multiple phone calls informing me of his well being. That made this process that much easier.
I am so thankful for the amazing help of the Chester Fund, because without them, I wouldn’t have my best friend. My kitty is now scheduled for surgery and doing so much better.”
Katherine and her cat “Tigger” are now reunited thanks to many generous donors to the Chester Foundation.
