A not for profit fund in Central New York providing financial assistance for veterinary costs for animals in need.
As our first year of operation draws to a close we have assisted with dozens of animals in need. Now we need your help to continue this work. Our suggestion to you: make a donation to the Shamrock Animal Fund in the name of the animal lover in your life. We will send them acknowledgement of your good deed.
That donation will help get the next Jacob the hound surgery to remove a tumor or the next Kozmoe the Maltese the dental work to put an end to life threatening infection.
We have judiciously utilized the funds entrusted to us to help animals and their families gain access to veterinary care that otherwise would be beyond their reach. We have followed one of our founding principles of the triangle of help in leveraging those dollars. The owner must contribute. The veterinary hospital offers a discount or other financial assistance. And, the Shamrock Animal Fund helps pay the bill. read more »
ELBRIDGE, NY - The Halloween season is the perfect time to tell the latest success story for the Shamrock Animal Fund as the most recent recipient is a black cat. Blackie's owner Cindy Mark reached out to Jamie Pomilio-Mulcahy and Matt Mulcahy's Shamrock Animal Fund when her kitten stopped eating, stopped moving her bowels and had a seizure.
Cindy lives in Elbridge. During the week of October 11th Mark did not know where to turn for help. Her night job at Welch-Allyn doesn't pay enough to have extra money to care for Blackie after paying her rent and caring for her daughter and herself. "I'm a single mom my finances are tight," said Cindy. "I've heard of the Shamrock Fund from listening to you on t.v." The Shamrock Animal Fund connected Cindy with the Fairmount Animal Hospital which was willing to see the cat and accommodate Cindy's financial needs. read more »

CHITTENANGO, NY- Kozmoe the 7 year old Malta-poo wags his tail and begs for treats from the seniors who live in a Chittenango apartment complex. The residents call him their mascot. "He means everything," said Kozmoe's owner Caroline Niles. "He's a kid. He's our kid."
In June, Kozmoe wasn't feeling well. Caroline and David Niles noticed he wasn't eating or drinking. They knew he needed to visit the veterinarian, but they didn't have the money to pay for any extensive treatment. Caroline heard about the Shamrock Animal Fund on television, in the newspaper and from a friend. She contacted Shamrock Animal Fund president Jamie Pomilio-Mulcahy and asked for help. read more »
ITHACA -- In the shadow of the towering Cornell University Animal Hospital the white coat of an eight year old American Eskimo dog stands out as she wanders through the summer grass. Curiosity has Pookie sniffing every corner, every inch. She is active and engaged. Her ailments are no longer obvious.
Moments later a breeze blows through pine trees surrounding a memorial park bench where Colleen Boord cradles her beloved Pookie and recalls the difficult nine months prior. "I'm so glad for the Shamrock Animal Fund," said Colleen Boord. "If it wasn't for the Shamrock Animal Fund, I wouldn't have been able to come down here and get her taken care of because I didn't have the money." read more »
