Success Story
Cat or Dog


Nala, the North Carolina cat, was showing signs of a blockage when she rushed to the veterinary hospital for surgery. Her owner is a single mom living on a very tight income. She’s been declined for care credit and is unable to afford care. Thankfully another organization helped with some of the surgery payment, but the family needs help to cover ongoing care and hospitalization. 

The surgery revealed that while Nala was indeed impacted, she didn’t have a typical blockage. Instead, her symptoms were a result of severe pancreatitis. The doctors are now fighting to get her levels under control or she may not survive. Without this help, Nala’s mom would be forced to euthanize her cat before giving her a chance to recover. Because of donors like you, Nala has what so many pets don’t get, a chance. 

Thank you for caring, please donate if you can. 


You saved Nala's Life

Thanks to your support and donations, we have good news to share about Nala! You saved another life!

This is what Nala's mom had to say on Great Nonprofits:

"Mere words are not able to express the sheer gratitude that I have towards For The Love Of Alex, Inc. My 1 year old cat became severely sick and she had a fever and was vomiting every 20 minutes and we could not help her get comfortable. Nala would not eat or drink water and laid around the house and was not able to move around by herself. I decided to take her to the animal hospital and after blood work and x-rays it was determined that Nala needed surgery ASAP. I was informed that the surgery would be extremely expensive and I knew that I would not be able to afford it. I applied for Care Credit and was denied and then I considered putting her down and this broke my heart.
The animal hospital staff told me about For The Love Of Alex, Inc and what their mission was and I decided to apply. I was approved within less than 24 hours and a portion of Nala's surgery and recovery was covered by For the Love of Alex. Upon performing surgery, it was discovered that Nala had a severe case of pancreatitis and was extremely constipated. Nala received aggressive post-surgery treatment and care for her condition. I am happy to report that she is recovering extremely well and I owe this miracle to the generosity of For The Love Of Alex, Inc. Had it not been for their care, concern and assistance, Nala may not have made it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!"
