Meet FACE Success Story Pinky!

This adorable Poodle is the pampered pet of Chris, who opened her heart to Pinky after her previous owner passed away.

When Pinky began to have trouble walking, Chris took her to the vet where she was diagnosed with ruptured cruciate ligaments in both of her back legs.

Pinky’s double-leg surgery would cost several thousand dollars and her loving family began fundraising efforts to help pay for it.

They reached out to the FACE Foundation for a grant, and we partnered with Banfield Pet Hospital to get Pinky the treatment she needed.

Pinky is now recovering and doing well.  She even made the local CBS News here in San Diego!  Watch her heartwarming story now:

Meet FACE Success Story Copper!

Copper and her dad John live a happy life together. As a veteran, John finds companionship and support in his sweet two-year-old Beagle.

One day, Copper got out the back gate and was hit by a car before John knew she escaped. John heard a yelp and a car horn and ran outside to find Copper on the ground and a car speeding away. John brought Copper inside, where she immediately hid in pain. They went to the veterinarian where Copper was diagnosed with a fractured jaw that would require surgical intervention.

John’s only income comes from his VA pension, and that alone is barely enough to get him through the month. He had no way of coming up with the money to help Copper, but also couldn’t consider leaving her in so much pain.

After John found out about FACE, he quickly reached out to us for help with his best friend. With a financial grant for critical veterinary care from FACE, Copper was able to get the surgery she needed.

We’re happy to report that Copper had a completely successful fracture repair. She and John are back home enjoying life side by side!
