Here's the background on the Spirit Medical Fund, it all started with a dachshund named Spirit, who had an amazing will to live.

The SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND was established after a brave little dachshund mix, later named Spirit, survived a horrific ordeal of animal cruelty.  Spirit was found at the Oakhill Cemetery around Halloween 2000.  She had been doused with gasoline, set on fire, and left to die.  When found, she was close to death.  Although she was in very poor health, she still had the will to live.  In order for this to be possible, she needed costly medical treatments.  The community reached out and provided us with the needed money.  This was the beginning of the SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND.
