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!

 

Cute Alert! Meet FACE Success Story Coco

This adorable pup is Coco, pictured here with his very best friend!

Recently, Coco had a bad landing when he jumped off the bed and broke his leg.

Coco’s family was devastated when they heard that the cost of surgery to repair his leg was more than they could afford.

Besides raising funds on their own, Coco’s owners also reached out to FACE for help.

A grant funded by our supporters, including Life Sponsor Spearhead Captial, enabled Coco to get his needed surgery (at a discounted rate) from our friends at the Pet Emergency and Specialty Center.

Thanks to all of our friends and supporters for helping us save beloved family pets like Coco!

 

FACE “Animaltarian Awards” Honors La Jolla Veterinary Hospital

On September 29th, FACE will be hosting our Animaltarian Awards, honoring some of our local San Diego area animal heroes.  We’ll be profiling each award recipient in the coming weeks, starting with our friends at La Jolla Veterinary Hospital!

La Jolla Vet has been taking care of pets for nearly 70 years.  They consistently rank among the best veterinary practices in San Diego.

La Jolla Vet has also been a dedicated supporter of animal welfare in San Diego, including FACE’s mission to end economic euthanasia by providing financial assistance to pet owners seeking critical veterinary care.

Among the many ways La Jolla Veterinary Hospital supports FACE is their annual Paws & Pints charitable fundraiser held every summer.  This year alone $15,000 of donations raised at the event went to help fund FACE’s life-saving work!

The hospital also often sponsors FACE’s annual fundraising events, like our Bags & Baubles shopping event and Invitational Golf Tournament, allowing us to raise more funds and help even more pets.

Additionally, Hospital Director Stephanie Coolidge serves on FACE’s Advisory Committee, lending her expertise and knowledge about the veterinary industry to provide strategic advice and guide organizational decisions. Stephanie says about the hospital, “Animal welfare is our lifestyle. Not our job, our hobby, nor a fraction of what we do. It is who we are and FACE encompasses all that we believe in.”

Thank you La Jolla Veterinary Hospital for all that you do, we are grateful for your support!
