Weeks after being laid off from her job due to COVID-19, George’s “mom” noticed that her sweet six-year-old pup was experiencing paralysis in his hind legs. George’s mom barely had enough funding to get him to the vet. In pain and unable to walk, George was diagnosed with a degenerative illness that damages a pet’s spinal cord over time. Left untreated he would be in extreme pain and unable to walk for the rest of his life, which often resulted in euthanasia. Fortunately the veterinarian suggested the family reach out to the FACE Foundation. With help from Veterinary Specialty Hospital and grant funds from the Sidney E. Frank Foundation, we were able to help George get the surgery he needed. He is now back at home with his loving family – exactly where he’s meant to be.
