FACE, the Foundation for Animal Care and Education, was established as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity in 2006 by a group of veterinarians and concerned community members. They wanted to provide financial support for animal owners who where were unable to afford the costs of their pet’s emergency or critical care. Their mission is to enhance and preserve the quality of life of animals by providing access to necessary medical care and education. To date, they have saved 2,000 animals from economic euthanasia and have raised over $3.5 million to help animal owners. To learn more about FACE, visit their website.
