15-year-old Bella means everything to her dad so he tried to do everything he could to help her. When she began exhibiting signs of pain and stopped eating, he knew she needed to go to the veterinarian immediately! She was diagnosed with severe dental disease as well as growths in her mouth. Bella’s retired dad receives no financial assistance. He used his entire stimulus check for her medical care, but still couldn’t afford all of Bella’s expenses. As Bella’s dad wrote on her GoFundMe page, “Bella has been my spunky best friend for 15 years. I live alone and she’s my companion, listener, comedian, supporter…if you’ve been fortunate enough to have a beloved side-kick like Bella, you know your friend is all of these things and more.”

Fortunately, Bella’s veterinarian referred her dad to the FACE Foundation for assistance and with the help of The Grey Muzzle Organization, Bella received treatment and she will continue her happy and pain-free life with her dad!
