Meet FACE Success Story Lei Lei!

Poor little Lei Lei was just 13 months old when she swallowed a coin that got stuck in her stomach.  Lei Lei needed emergency surgery to remove this foreign body obstruction.

Lei Lei’s family could not afford the full cost of the surgery and reached out to FACE for financial assistance.  Thanks to a FACE grant and our veterinary partners at San Diego’s Pet Emergency and Specialty Center, Lei Lei was able to get her life-saving operation and is now doing well!

 

Meet Charlie, FACE’s 2,500th Success Story!

We are celebrating a milestone, our 2,500th life saved!

Meet Charlie, an adorable 5 year old Terrier mix.  Recently, Charlie began to show signs of illness.  Her family brought her to the vet where she was diagnosed with pyometra, a life-threatening infection of the uterus in unspayed female dogs.

Charlie needed emergency surgery.  Her human parents are a senior couple struggling to make ends meet.  Charlie’s mom has needed a wheelchair to get around since an accident, and the family credits Charlie with being a key element of her rehabilitation.

“I honestly credit Charlie with saving my wife’s life. Though she is still wheelchair bound, Charlie helped get her through this tough time. Charlie is always by her side,” reports Charlie’s dad.

Thanks to donations from our friends and supporters, Charlie’s vets at VCA Animal Medical Center of El Cajon were able to provide her with the life-saving treatment she needed.

Thank you to all our friends and veterinary partners for making this milestone possible!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Fenway!

This adorable furball posing with his equally adorable human family is Fenway!

Fenway got into a little trouble recently when he swallowed one of his human sister’s toys.  He needed emergency surgery to remove the obstruction.

With the help of a FACE grant, our friends at the Animal Emergency Clinic of San Diego were able to give Fenway the treatment he needed, and at a discounted rate!

Sending our best wishes to Fenway and his family for a long and happy life together!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Tater!

This handsome fellow got into a bit of trouble recently when he got outside and was hit by a car.

Poor Tater suffered a broken leg and dislocated foot.  His mom needed a little financial help when the vet told her that Tater required surgery.

With help from a FACE grant and discounted veterinary services from VCA Mission Animal and Bird Hospital, Tater was able to get the surgery he needed.  (We also talked to his mom about the dangers facing cats that go outside.)

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Tater!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Charlie!

This adorable Golden Retriever is Charlie, a much-loved military family pet.  Charlie got into some trouble recently and swallowed a razor.  His vets at the Pet Emergency and Specialty Center in La Mesa, CA told Charlie’s parents that he needed emergency surgery.

Charlie’s parents began to raise money for the surgery but needed a little extra help.  They applied for a FACE grant and we were able to provide additional funds that enabled Charlie to have the gastrotomy surgery he urgently needed.

Charlie is now back at home recovering with his humans!
