A FACE in the Spotlight: Meet Dr. Michele Drake

Dr. Drake and Wilbur

Meet FACE veterinary partner Dr. Michele Drake (the cute little guy is Wilbur!) of The Drake Center for Veterinary Care in Encinitas, California.

Dr. Drake and her dedicated team are valuable partners in our mission to end economic euthanasia in San Diego County by providing financial assistance to owners of pets in need of life-saving veterinary care.

Dr. Drake worked with FACE on our very first case in which a pet’s cancer treatment was funded with the help of a special grant from the Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo.  Drake Center patient Rico Chase, a 4 year old shepherd mix was being treated for a mast cell tumor.  Rico’s family was able to afford needed chemotherapy with funds from the grant.

In addition to being one of our veterinary partners, Dr. Drake is also a sponsor of our annual Bags & Baubles fundraising event and participates in our In-memory program, making donations to FACE in the memory of patients who have passed away.

FACE thanks Dr. Michele Drake and the entire team at The Drake Center for their faithful support!

  1. That is a great system for pet owners, to get help for saving their pet, it is very expensive also here in Finland. I think we don’t have any organisation to help for very sick pets.

  2. I know this may be a crazy question, but I am suppose to be going for an interview with the Banfield Pet Hospitals? They are owned by the Mars companies. Do you know anything about them? I did some reading and I wasn’t sure I liked what I saw…. I don’t want to leave the job I have (which I’m not crazy about, but it’s secure), just to go somewhere that is bad…. Thanks for any help you could give me. 🙂
