Recently, FACE partnered with the Elevate Foundation to pass out pet supplies and resources in Downtown San Diego. The Elevate Foundation’s mission is to identify individuals of need in our community and partner with other non-profits (and donors) to provide them with support and assistance.
Friend of FACE, Dr. Corey Cole of Lifetime Animal Care Center, provided flea control and veterinary advice to pet owners in need. Together, we were able to help over 65 pet owners and their pets!
Thank you to both the Elevate Foundation and Lifetime Animal Care Center for your support.
FACE is so thankful for the community partnerships that enable us to lend a helping hand to pet owners in need. We have been able to give over 600 pet owners access to resources and supplies thanks to the network of community organizations who partner with us.
Here at FACE, we love to help all pets, we just don’t get many opportunities to help animals other than dogs and cats. When we received a call about Butterscotch, a five-year-old guinea pig who needed an eye removal, we knew we had to help this adorable little guy!
Though losing an eye might sound scary, Butterscotch was in the best of hands, receiving care from exotic pet expert Dr. Cecil at San Diego’s Pet Emergency & Specialty Center. PESC is one of FACE’s incredible veterinary hospital partners and provides us with a 25% discount off the entire procedure.
Surgery was a complete success and Butterscotch has returned home to his loving family and his brother, Peanut Butter!
Meet Luka, a five-year-old Spaniel mix who was presented to the veterinary hospital with severe bladder stones. Luka’s mom fundraised extensively to help her sweet dog, but was still unable to afford the entire cost of the procedure.
She contacted FACE looking for a helping hand in saving her best friend. With the helpful doctors and staff at Banfield Pet Hospital, Luka was able to have her emergency cystotomy surgery and return to fun-filled days with her mom!
This happy little pup is a recent FACE Sucess Story. Casper is a member of a large and loving family of 6. He was diagnosed with a painful and debilitating spinal condition known as IVDD (intervertebral disc disease).
Casper needed immediate surgery with a veterinary neurologist. Thanks to our partner California Veterinary Specialists and a grant from FACE, Casper’s family was able to get him the surgery he so urgently needed.
