The Chloe Rae Memorial Fund is a new program at the Frederick County Humane Society to assist families who can't afford critical emergency care for their pets. "This is a fund that was created in memory of a dog named Chloe Rae," said Connie Graf, Director of the Frederick County Humane Society. The Jack Russell terrier, born June 12, 1984 passed away quietly on November 18th, 2012. Chloe lived a long and healthy life in part because of her strong will and determination, but also as a result of the love and care she received over the years, including comprehensive medical care. Most notably in her senior years, Chloe had access to amazing veterinary care with services ranging from regular senior profiles, cataract and spinal surgery, dental treatments, renal care and seizure management. "A lot of people just don't have the money, because of financial hardships, and with this fund, we offer up to $500 for treatment so the pet owner don't have to elect for their pet to be euthanized," continued Graf.
In memory of Chloe's birthday, a private individual says he will match up to $5000 of donations received for the fund. "You can send in $10. We've been able to help several animals because of this fund," continued Graf. The Chloe Rae Memorial Fund relies on the financial contributions of others to keep it alive.
