For the Love of Alex, Inc



They’re a  nonprofit corporation in Telford, PA dedicated to the care and rescue of domestic animals with a primary goal of funding life-saving medical care for animals in need. They work with reputable veterinary hospitals to establish funds for families who are unable to afford veterinary care for their beloved pet.

The founder of the organization has a kitty, Alex (hence the name). Who went through a difficult time with bladder stones. If they hadn’t had surgery it could have caused a blockage & kidney failure. My husband & I lost two cats (Tyler & Shane) due to this. Alex’ person was able to afford the operation, but, not everyone can (for whatever their pet might need) & that’s how For the Love of Alex was born. So others would be able to get the help their furbaby required. I’m thankful there are people with hearts like this who want to make a difference.
