Welcome to Spice's Fund

Every day throughout America seriously ill or injured dogs and cats are euthanized, surrendered to shelters or abandoned because their families can't afford the life-saving medical treatment or surgical care their pets desperately need.

That kind of heartbreak shouldn't happen anywhere.

Spice's Fund wants to make sure it doesn't happen here in Lambertville, N.J., one of the most pet-friendly places on the planet, or in our sister community of New Hope, Pa.

Folks in our towns love their dogs and cats like family because our pets are family. We do everything possible to give them happy, healthy lives. Yet, serious illness or injury can strike at any time, and some of our neighbors have fixed incomes or they are unemployed, underemployed or enduring temporary financial distress.

With your support, Spice's Fund can help dogs and cats enjoy longer, healthier lives and keep them in their happy homes with the people who love them.

Spice's Fund exists to raise money to provide financial assistance to eligible individuals and families of companion animals seeking treatment at Lambertville Animal Hospital.

Demonstrating its commitment to the mission of Spice's Fund, Lambertville Animal Hospital often donates or discounts medical and surgical care to pets receiving financial assistance.

With your support, Spice's Fund can help dogs and cats enjoy longer, healthier lives and keep them in their happy homes with the people who love them.

That means everything. Just ask Lambertville resident Karen Uckermark.

Almost three years ago, Karen visited Bucks County SPCA planning to adopt a little female cat. But a beautiful, eight-week-old boy with big green eyes spotted her, and he fell head over paws. "He chose me," she said, "and I took him home." It was a perfect match, and she named him Schatz, the German word for sweetheart.

One morning, Karen noticed Schatz was acting strangely, and she took him to Lambertville Animal Hospital. He was diagnosed with a urinary-tract blockage, a life-threatening emergency requiring immediate surgery.

Karen's fixed income made it impossible to afford the procedure. "I was holding Schatz in the examining room, and I was crying almost hysterically. He's my life. I was devastated.

"Then the doctor told me that Spice's Fund could help me."

And that's exactly what Spice's Fund did.  Karen received the financial assistance she needed to cover all of Schatz's life-saving care.

Schatz is doing well.  "He's full of vim and vigor," Karen said. "He's a very loving cat. He always wants to be petted and loves sitting in my lap. And he keeps me going. I don't know what I'd do without him."

Spice's Fund wants to tell many more happily-ever-after stories like Karen's. Please help us by making a donation today.
