After being homeless for 9 months, Ace and his family were moving into a home today
when he slipped out the door and was hit by a car.

Update for Ace

We're happy to report that according to the hospital, Ace is doing AMAZING! Because of your generosity and support, he received the surgery he needed after being hit by a car this week! 
The surgeon says that everything went beautifully and he is recovering well. Hopefully he'll be going home to his family before the weekend.  

Ace's family is so unbelievably grateful for everything and everyone. They really had a rough road after being homeless for nine months, and we're hoping that with your support, the family can get back on their feet again with their beloved family dog in their new home.

 Ace is such a sweet pup, and we're told he's been giving many kisses to everyone at the hospital while he recovers. 

On behalf of Ace, his family, and all the pets we're able to help through your support of Frankie's Friends, thank you.

 Together we truly are helping to save more pets' lives.  


Just when things started looking up for the Bendixen family, disaster struck their beloved dog. A series of unfortunate events rendered Mr. and Mrs. Bendixen, their son Asher, and their dog, Ace, homeless in Utah for the last nine months. They were recently able to secure employment and today they were moving into their new home, starting a new chapter in their lives. Unfortunately during the commotion of the move, their 5 year old dog, Ace, slipped through the door and was tragically hit by a car. 

Ace suffered abrasions and multiple fractures to the femoral bone in his back leg, requiring surgery and amputation to allow him to return to a normal life again. Ace is awaiting treatment at BluePearl Veterinary Hospital in Midvale, UT but needs your help to pay for this urgent surgery. The family spent every dollar they had to secure housing, leaving them unable to afford the surgery necessary to help Ace, who also provides emotional companionship for their son who suffers from severe depression. 

Dr. Stockhill, the ER Surgeon overseeing Ace's case says that his prognosis is great with amputation, stating, "he is such a super sweet baby, this family really deserves a break." 

Frankie's Friends is asking for your help to relieve the burden this family is facing. Will you please donate today so that Ace can have the surgery necessary to live a normal life, in his new home, with his loving family again?
