Meet “Beamer!” As you can see, nine-year-old, Dachshund Beamer and his “mom” are great buddies. Mom helped Beamer after being abandoned as a very sick puppy so she was heartbroken when her baby developed a degenerative disc disease. After taking him to Veterinary Specialty Hospitalshe was thrilled to learn about FACE and that we were able to help this little guy with surgery for IVDD. She let us know her gratitude in a note, “I just wanted to thank you again for approving Beamer’s surgery. I have been upset and crying all day wondering what I was going to do. I can’t imagine having to put him down when he has so much life left in him. Your phone call was a giant weight off my shoulders and I am so thankful that organizations like yours exist.“
