“Mojo” the Doxie is considered one of the other kids in the house by his “mom.” Their family consisted of a single mom, a seven year old son, a 2 year old daughter, and, of course, Mojo. Their little family had just moved to San Diego from Wyoming and it had taken his mom longer than expected to find a job and get back on her feet. However, she soon got a job helping disabled individuals live independently and she had only been working for about a month when Mojo started showing signs of losing mobility in his back legs. A trip to FACE’s Save-A-Life partner VCA Animal Medical Center in El Cajon confirmed Mojo had a spine disease and without immediate surgery he would lose all control of his legs. Mojo was in a lot of pain and his mom vowed to do whatever possible to keep her family intact. Luckily, when she said she had no way of paying for the surgery, VCA suggested she reach out to FACE and after a brief application process, we were able to get Mojo into surgery! In her own words, Mojo’s mom expressed her gratitude to FACE and our donors, “I am forever grateful to VCA and to you guys for saving my fur baby and giving him a second chance at a normal life. From the bottom of my heart, as well as my kids hearts, THANK YOU!”
His mom updated FACE soon after and said although a little wobbly, Mojo was happily walking again and she was confident he would be back to his old self in no time!
