For 9 years, sweet Yaston has been the devoted service dog for a brave young girl named Sky. Sky has an incurable mitochondrial disorder and has endured many hospitalizations and operations…with Yaston at her side.
In 2017, Yaston was diagnosed with primary renal hematuria, a rare but serious kidney disease. Yaston needed a life-saving surgery that is performed by only a handful of veterinary specialists in the U.S. Sky’s extensive medical bills also made affording Yaston’s surgery a challenge.
FACE teamed with San Diego’s Veterinary Specialty Hospital to arrange for veterinary surgeon Dr. Allyson Berent of New York’s highly regarded Animal Medical Center to fly to San Diego and perform Yaston’s surgery at no cost to the family.
Yaston is now recovering and back home with Sky and her family, where he can continue to provide her with the love and support she has come to rely upon.
Thank you to our wonderful donors and veterinary partners for saving Yaston!
