About the Frantz Fund
The Frantz L. Dantzler friends for life fund, inc., is a charity in St. Joseph County, Ind., that works with veterinary clinics to help needy people provide basic care to their pets. Pets are not luxuries. They are companions and beloved family members whose health maintenance and wellness care can be unaffordable to many people. The Frantz Fund helps qualified clients by paying up to 80 percent of the cost of basic veterinary care. All gifts to The Frantz Fund are tax deductible.
What We Are
During his far-flung investigations, Frantz witnessed many cases of animal abuse and exploitation. But he also saw caring people who put their pets’ needs ahead of their own.
After Frantz’s death in 2005, his family and friends founded the Frantz L. Dantzler Friends for Life Fund, Inc. Our purpose is to honor the life of this dedicated man by extending his legacy of compassion to needy people and their pets.
What We Do
>> Rabies inoculation
How It Works
The Fund offers up to $200 in assistance per year for each pet, with a limit of three pets per client. To receive inoculation services, pets must be spayed or neutered. The Pet Refuge ABC Clinic in South Bend is the preferred provider of spay-neuter services.
