Your Donation Saves the Lives of Family Pets

We believe no family pet should be euthanized solely due to economic reasons. Unfortunately, financial hardships can make it difficult for pet owners to find critical medical care for their dogs, cats, and other companion animals.

FACE Foundation provides financial support to low-income families, senior citizens, veterans, military families, people experiencing homelessness, students, disabled individuals, and hard-working families who have exhausted all other options and are at risk of losing their beloved pet.

As one of the top local animal charities in San Diego, we collaborate with many veterinary hospitals and medical providers of all sizes throughout the county to provide life-saving care for pets at risk of economic euthanasia.
