WEST WINDSOR, N.J., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Loving pet owners know the dilemma. Your pet is sick, but you can't afford the veterinary bills. Do you hope they can heal on their own, say goodbye, or put yourself in mounds of debt to help save part of the family? With over $13 billion spent on veterinary care alone in 2012, it's clear that love and loyalty often beat out financial stress. But, the choice is never easy.
As the economy stays stagnant, Lindsay and Bryan Driver, the co-founders of Animal Lover Funding, are well aware that not everyone has the option of charging expensive veterinary care to a credit card. It puts families in a tough situation where the choice between euthanizing a family pet or succumbing to debt becomes a life or death decision. Shelters running on shoestring budgets that survive solely through the help of volunteers and donations are placed in an equally tight spot. With this in mind, Animal Lover Funding was created to help families, rescues, and beloved pets get the care they deserve while reducing financial stress. Through the use of www.animalloverfunding.com, individuals, animal shelters, animal charities, and pet related businesses raise money online for their animal related needs.
It's also a situation that the Drivers know too well. "We've experienced some of the worst illnesses possible with our two dogs and spent thousands of dollars on their medical care in less than two years," said Lindsay Driver. "But, we'd rack up that debt again in a heartbeat. They're our family and we take care of each other."
With Animal Lover Funding, long gone are the days of bartering for payment plans or sitting outside the local pet store to raise a few extra dollars. Instead, a community driven by support and camaraderie provides an outlet to help save the lives of animals worldwide.
