Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Bella Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation in the Oklahoma City metro area created to assist low-income, elderly or terminally ill pet owners with the cost of veterinary care when it cannot be afforded and through adoption outreach, place as many animals as possible in loving permanent homes.
Our primary goal is to provide financial assistance for emergency veterinary care when it cannot be afforded. Every year thousands of animals are euthanized or sent home to die because the people who love them cannot afford the cost of veterinary care. When a stray or abandoned animal is brought into a clinic, even fewer options are available. At The Bella Foundation, we believe that every animal should receive the best possible care regardless of the owner's ability to pay.
Our secondary goal is to find permanent homes for animals through our adoption outreach program. By utilizing a network of foster families, we temporarily provide loving homes for animals waiting to find their forever home. Every animal The Bella Foundation adopts to a family leaves our care spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and micro chipped. When a new family adopts a pet from Bella, all they need to provide is love.
The Bella Foundation was created in 2006 to assist low income pet owners with the cost of veterinary care when it cannot be afforded. Through private donations, fund raising and grant awards we have funded over $100,000 in veterinary care.
In August of 2010 we embarked on a secondary mission to help find homes to abandoned animals. In just a few short months we have helped place over 250 dogs into permanent homes and currently have dozens of others in fosters waiting to find a new family.
