"To know that even one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded." Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are a donation-based, 501C3 charitable organization who provides support and financial assistance to families whose pet faces a cancer diagnosis. Through grants, care packages, special experiences and genuine human support and kindness, The Live Like Roo Foundation has been able to assist over 8200 pets and their families through cancer diagnoses giving out over $1.2 million. Having experienced this devastation first-hand with the loss of Roosevelt, The Live Like Roo Foundation strives to be a helping hand in a difficult and sometimes confusing time. We want to be a real life sounding board and support system for people that need guidance and hope, sharing compassion and strength along the way. Ultimately, our mission is that you and your pet will #LiveLikeRoo.

Our Mission

Though Roosevelt had only a few months to live after we rescued him, we hope that he inspires everyone to #LiveLikeRoo forever. We are a 501c3 Foundation that assists animals and their owners through a cancer diagnosis.
