The Maranda Fund



The Maranda Fund was inspired by a dog named Maranda that arrived at Old Dog Haven as a stray in 2009. Maranda required surgery to repair her torn knee ligaments and despite a generous discount from the veterinary clinic, the surgery was very costly and a decision needed to be made.

Old Dog Haven decided Maranda deserved a chance for a healthy life so the surgery was successfully completed.

The Maranda Fund now exists in Maranda’s honor to help other dogs like Maranda that need major, one-time veterinary procedures that would give them a good chance for a happy life if successful, in excess of what we would consider normal veterinary expenses.

Since the Maranda Fund was started in 2010 hundreds of dogs have been helped with the Maranda Fund.
