San Diego’s FACE Foundation

Calling All Veterinarians!

The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) is on a mission to save lives.

FACE is a San Diego non-profit that works with local veterinarians to save lives of pets in need of emergency care. Out of over 200 San Diego veterinary hospitals, FACE has partnered with 115 to assist critically ill or injured pets through their Save-a-Life Program. Through outreach to new potential partners, FACE hopes to expand their Save-a-Life Program to ensure that no pet is left behind.
