“Kiba” is a Shiba Inu who had seen better days when his owner sought financial assistance from the FACE Foundation. Kiba had been battling painful bladder stones for some time when it was decided he needed a surgery to unblock him. Kiba and his human mom had just relocated to California and did not have any money that could be used toward this unexpected cost. While his “mom” weighed her options, Kiba’s bladder would quickly refill and she could no longer afford to catheterize him. With no other choices left, she desperately reached out to FACE for help to save her boy’s life. Fortunately, FACE was able to approve this little family for emergency funds so Kiba could have a second chance at a pain-free life.
