In memory of Acme . March 1982-March 1997
The Acme Foundation was created in memory of Acme, a beloved feline of the organization's founders on March 6, 1998, one year after Acme's transition.
Acme experienced numerous physical ailments during his life, but remained a lively companion to the other household felines and his guardians. Towards Acme's end of life, while under veterinary care for diabetes and cancer the founders observed in the veterinary hospital's waiting room how some individuals, especially senior citizens would sacrifice funds for their own medicine in order to pay for veterinary services.
To help those less fortunate have a resource that could help them with the expenses for the treatment of their seriously ill cats and dogs was one of the main inspirations for The Acme Foundation's creation. The other inspiration was Acme's last veterinarian, Dr. Alan Stewart. Because of the compassion and quality medical care Acme received from Dr. Stewart and his staff, the founders believed quality care should be made available to those with limited financial resources, especially low income senior citizens and the disabled.
If possible, the founders believe a pet should not be euthanized due to lack of funds necessary to treat a pet that would otherwise regain health continuing to provide its guardian with companionship and unconditional love.
Please help the Lake County, CA community's senior citizens and disabled who have limited funds care for their seriously ill cats and dogs. Sometimes pets are the only " family " individuals have. Your donation will help maintain dignity for the pet owner, while helping save a pet's life.
