Angels for Animals



Be My Angel Veterinary Fund is led by Founder and Chairman Mark F. Magazu, II.

Mr. Magazu founded Be My Angel to help pet owners and veterinary hospitals to help pet owners with financial needs whose pets desperately need medical care in order to survive.

Mr. Magazu grew up working in his father’s animal hospital since the age of six, and over a quarter century has seen what he describes as “more devastating cases than you would ever want to know” where pet owners in emergency situations faced the worst of all possible choices–putting their animal to sleep only because they could not afford the medical care needed for the animal to survive.

Calling it one of the “great moral dilemmas,” Mr. Magazu founded Be My Angel to bring the greater community of animal lovers together to assist those with financial needs in emergency situations, so that their beloved companions can have a chance to survive.

Mr. Magazu earned his BA in economics and MA in Public Management from Columbia University, and he earned his JD from the Georgetown University Law Center. In addition to leading the Be My Angel Veterinary Fund, Mr. Magazu is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the consulting and representation firm Atlas Strategies, based in New York City, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.
