EIN Number: 92-0172009
THE ROSCOE FUND has been created to help assist owners or rescue animals in need of emergency medical treatment and works in cooperation with both emergency animal hospitals in Anchorage. It is our goal to help reduce suffering in animals that might otherwise remain untreated or be euthanized for purely economic reasons.
THE ROSCOE FUND began in 2000, when Paul Hendrickson donated money in honor of his beloved poodle, Roscoe, to be used to help other pets. Since then, many others have opened their hearts to donate to the fund in memory of a pet or other loved one. The fund has helped hundreds of pets since its beginning.
Free ways to donate?? Yes! And we really appreciate it!

Are you in need of help?
The Roscoe Fund goes through many ups and downs because all of the money that would go toward your pet has to be provided by donations. Quite unfortunately there are many more pets in need in Anchorage than the Roscoe Fund can support. This is why donations are so very important. We encourage everyone who has benefitted from the assistance of the Roscoe Fund to find it in their heart to at least try to repay what they took out (but are welcome to donate more!!) when they are better off financially.
We are currently, for now, only able to help with issues of a humane nature.
If approved, you can use The Roscoe Fund’s assistance at your OWN vet.
