Penny is a tiny but tough Chi-weenie who came face to face with a poisonous
snake. Penny survived the venomous bite, but she had a large open wound on her
neck. She needed surgery to repair the wound and remove the necrotic tissue
in order to save her life.
When Penny’s owners learned the cost of her critical care, they were devastated. They thought they would have to give her up to save her. Penny’s family of five has been struggling emotionally and financially ever since their home and business burned down in the San Diego wildfires. They lost everything, but at least they had each other. They couldn’t bear the thought of losing Penny, too.
Thankfully, ABCVeterinaryHospital in San Marcos told Penny’s family about the FACE Foundation. FACE was able to help with the unexpected costs of Penny’s emergency care. She had her procedure yesterday and went home last night. Thank you to our wonderful donors for helping us save Penny, our 500th life saved!
