The FACE Foundation provides financial assistance to pet owners who are unable to cover the full cost of their pets’ critical or emergency veterinary care.
Established in 2006, the FACE Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity, whose mission is to enhance and keep the quality of life of animals by providing access to necessary medical care and education.
As many people today experience increasing economic challenges, their pets are suffering too. The number of people who cannot afford critical medical care for their sick or injured pet is growing at an alarming rate.
In what is being labeled as ‘economic euthanasia,’ these beloved pets are being euthanized because their owners cannot afford the unexpected cost of treatment needed to save their lives.
FACE Foundation is the first of its kind in San Diego County. While there are wonderful charitable groups focused on finding homes for pets without families, there are no other organizations that are dedicated only to saving the lives of pets that are already in loving homes, but whose families cannot pay for all or part of the emergency or critical care they need to survive.
FACE relies solely on donations to continue its mission of providing access to life saving veterinary care and to keep the quality of life for loving pets.
