A five-year-old Dachshund, Lupin suffered from a slipped disk in his back.  Lupin was in great pain, and his owner, Shane, rushed him to Veterinary Specialty Hospital, VSH, in San Marcos.  There, doctors determined surgery was necessary to correct Lupinís slipped disk.  Shane was repaying his student loans, which prevented him from funding Lupinís surgery, as it costed $6,000.  Luckily for Lupin and Shane, FACE came to the rescue, providing financial assistance to cover the procedure and medical care.  Lupin is recovering currently, but he should return to his normal, Doxie self in no time!
