Cute little Theo is a rescue pup living with a single mom who is both working and studying for a degree. While she works hard to provide for her family, Theo’s mom wasn’t prepared for his recent veterinary emergency.
Theo began urinating blood and his vet at Mast Blvd. Pet Hospital diagnosed him with a urethral issue that required surgery. Theo was able to get the surgery he needed thanks to a grant from FACE and is on the way to a full recovery at home with his family!

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!
