Meet FACE Success Story Theo!

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!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Harvey!

How adorable is Harvey?!

This cute 7 year old pup started experiencing weakness in his back legs.  An exam at San Diego’s Veterinary Speciality Hospital showed that Harvey was suffering from a herniated disc and needed spinal surgery.

“The cost was way beyond what we could afford,” said Harvey’s owner.  FACE Life Sponsor Ruggable provided financial assistance to help Harvey get his operation.

He is now on his way to a full recovery at home with his family!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Snuggles!

Poor little Snuggles had a rough start in life.  His mom Debra found him living on the streets.  Snuggles had a mangled leg and his veterinarian suspected that it was due to either a birth defect or a very early injury.

Snuggles needed a limb amputation to prevent infection and improve his overall quality of life.  Debra was unable to afford the full cost of the surgery, so she and her vet reached out to FACE for help.  We were able to provide them with the needed financial assistance.

“I would like to send a great big thank you to the FACE Foundation for donating towards Snuggles’ surgery. He is doing great after seeing Dr. Morris and Rancho Del Oro Veterinary Hospital for his first follow up visit.  Snuggles and I are so grateful.” – Debra

 

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!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Abel

This beautiful cat is Abel!  Abel was suffering from a urinary blockage and had to go to the vet for treatment.  Sadly, he became re-obstruced within 24 hours and needed a perineal urethrostomy (a surgery that permanently opens up the urethra in cats prone to blockages).

Urinary blockages are a common condition in male cats, but can quickly become life-threatening when a cat is unable to urinate.

Money was tight for Abel’s family, so with the help of a FACE grant, he was able to get the surgery he needed to live a normal life again.

Abel’s family reports that he is now home and recovering well from his surgery!
