Meet Gracie! Gracie is an adorable 2-year-old Chihuahua mix who is a constant best friend to her mom, Julie. Julie struggles with mental health issues, but having Gracie provides her with the constant companionship and support that she needs. Gracie has a history of getting into the trash, so when her mom noticed her lethargic and vomiting, she rushed to the veterinary hospital. It turns out, Gracie swallowed a shoe lace and was in need of an emergency surgery to remove it. Gracie’s life-saving surgery, however, was completely outside her mom’s financial means. FACE partner hospital, VCA Mission Animal and Bird helped them apply for FACE, and shortly after Gracie was in surgery. She is doing well and Julie is so happy to have had the support.
