It’s hard to believe the year 2016 is almost history! As we look forward to 2017, and working with our awesome veterinary partners to save the lives of beloved family pets in need of emergency medical care, we thought we’d take a quick look back at some of the highlights of the past year.
The year 2016 marked FACE’s 10th anniversary. From 2006 to 2016, we have helped save over 1,600 lives.
We are one of a small handful of U.S. non-profits with a mission to save family pets from the tragedy of economic euthanasia. We began with one hospital partner…today we have over 125 veterinary partners throughout San Diego County. Our partners discount their services by at least 25% for FACE cases.
As of 2016, our Humane Education program has positively impacted over 800 youth in our community. Our brand-new program, Roxy’s Dental Clinic, has provided free dental care to 15 pets who were former FACE grantees.
We are also celebrating our partnership with the Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo. To date, they have granted FACE over $30,000 to help save pets with cancer…something we have never been able to do before.
Thanks to all of our friends and supporters for a great 2016…we can’t wait for next year!
