FACE Foundation

Your Donation Saves Lives

Every animal deserves access to medical care that they can afford. 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

About Us

Our mission is to enhance and preserve the quality of life of companion animals by providing access to necessary medical care and education. Our work ensures life-saving medical care to preserve the lives of beloved pets.
