Meet FACE Success Story Zeus!

This handsome fellow is a 9 month old Siberian Husky pup named Zeus.  Zeus and his human dad were unfortunately involved in a car accident recently.  The car was totaled but luckily Zeus’s dad was unhurt.

Zeus initially seemed fine too, although he was tossed about a little in the back seat.  It was only later at home that he began to show signs that he was unwell.  His veterinarian diagnosed Zeus with intussusception, a condition where one segment of the intestines slides (or “telescopes”) into another.

Zeus required surgery to fix his urgent medical problem, and the combination of an unexpected car accident and a veterinary emergency were financially difficult for his family to handle.

With the help of a grant from FACE, Zeus was able to get the surgery he needed and is now back at home recovering with his family!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Thor!

Poor little Thor is a 7 month old Yorkie who suffered a fall while home alone one day and fractured two of his delicate legs.

Thor’s parents were desperate to come up with the funds for the surgery needed to repair his legs.  They began a fundraising campaign but were unable to raise enough.  Thor’s vet, California Veterinary Specialists, referred Thor’s parents to FACE.

With a financial grant, we were able to cover the remaining amount needed for Thor’s critical surgery.  Please join us in wishing sweet Thor a speedy recovery!

 

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Meet Beast!

6 month old FACE Success Story Beast needed emergency surgery after ingesting a foreign object…one of our most common veterinary emergencies!

Beast’s family reached out to FACE for financial assistance and we were happy to help this cute little guy get the surgery he so urgently needed!

 

Happy National Puppy Day from FACE Success Story Dallas!

In honor of National Puppy Day, we’d like to introduce you to Dallas!

This adorable Border Collie was injured after playing with a much larger Golden Retriever. At only 6 months old, Dallas desperately needed surgery to repair the fracture in his leg.

His owner had just moved to San Diego and taken Dallas in as his own when he found him as a stray. Thankfully, Dallas’s “dad” reached out to us and also fund-raised on his own for Dallas’s care. We’re happy to report that this pup is back to playing with all his furry friends!
