Mission Statement

The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity, whose mission is to enhance and preserve the quality of life of animals by providing access to necessary medical care and education. Based on established criteria, FACE provides financial grants for animal owners who are unable to partially or fully cover the cost of their pet's emergency or critical care.


In what is being labeled as 'economic euthanasia,' beloved animal companions are being euthanized because their owners cannot afford the often unexpected cost of treatment needed to save their lives. The FACE Foundation was created to address this tragedy. What started out as a beautiful vision to stop the surrender and euthanasia of beloved family pets, has become a supportive center where families in crisis can get a helping hand to save their pets' lives. FACE provides financial grants directly to veterinary hospitals on behalf of qualified applicants.

FACE relies solely on donations and funds raised from special events to continue its mission of providing access to life saving veterinary care and to enhance and preserve the quality of life for these loving pets.

All of the people I came in contact with at this event were wonderful! This is a committed group of individuals trying to make a difference. I felt appreciated and I left the event feeling like I would assist again.

Organization does not bother to respond to volunteer offers—very disappointing.

What a great organization! I volunteered as a photographer for their 2017 Bags & Baubles events and it was truly an awesome experience. There were so many friendly people I got to meet, including some of the other interns/volunteers that I had a chance to talk to. I spoke with another photographer who told me about his personal experience with FACE, and how they helped him cover his pricey medical bill for his dog's surgery, and it made me realize just how awesome of a non-profit organization that face is. I would without a doubt volunteer here again, and I would highly recommend that anyone else who wants to have a great time while serving an even greater cause volunteers here too!

No one ever got back to me about this event, a little disappointed as I was really looking forward to it. Daniel
