Supporting Local Military Families.

“I am speechless. Words cannot express how appreciative we are for the help. I am a Marine Corps combat veteran; I do not know what I would have done without Face Foundation. Thank you so much for all the help. It means the world to me.” –A FACE Grant Recipient

Saving pets and helping families is what the Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) strives to do every day. FACE was created in 2006 in response to “economic euthanasia” – when pets with life-threatening yet treatable conditions are euthanized due to their owners’ financial constraints. FACE partners with over 100 local veterinary hospitals to carry out their mission and has saved the lives of nearly 1,000 beloved pets in San Diego County.

Among the lucky FACE Success Stories are over 100 local military families who have reached out to the non-profit organization for assistance. Thanks to the generosity of public donors, FACE has given over $150,000 to aid local military families.

“We are so proud to provide a much-needed service to families in our community,” Brooke Haggerty, Executive Director tells a pet’s life magazine. “It is all the more heartwarming to help those who have already sacrificed so much.”
In addition to saving pets and helping families through grants, FACE provides additional resources to pet owners on a daily basis. FACE also has a growing humane education program that teaches children about compassion for animals and the importance of proper veterinary care.
