Dr. Kristin Mahoney, DVM was the proud parent of Foxy, who is the inspiration behind Foxy's Fund. Foxy was just 7 months old when she was dumped at the specialty clinic where Dr. Mahoney worked, and had been starved and suffered a pathological fracture from her lack of nutrition. Dr. Mahoney stepped in to nurse Foxy back to health.
Foxy, came to work with Dr. Mahoney every day for several years. Rat poison toxicity cases were very common; dogs came in unable to clot their blood, and bleeding out. Many of the little dogs needed whole blood and needed It Instantaneously. That's where Foxy helped out. She was the universal blood donor of the dog world. And over the years, she literally saved many small dogs that really needed immediate transfusions.
Foxy died when she was about 14, but she loved life was such a good natured soul. Foxy's Fund was created in her honor and adopted by hospitals so other homeless and family-less animals get the medical care they need.
