Murphyís owner Nicolette thought she had no choice but to euthanize her beloved companion after he injured his back jumping off the couch. Money is tight for this Nicolette and her husband, who is in the Navy, and the surgery to repair Murphyís back was very expensive. His appointment at the vet for euthanasia was just hours away and she was frantically searching for an alternative. Nicoletteís husband had deployed to Afghanistan days earlier. Alone and scared, Nicolette was sobbing when she contacted FACE seeking financial assistance. Within an hour, everything had changed. Murphy had an appointment for surgery the next day and Nicoletteís tears were tears of joy.
