Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE)

Funded from 2015 - 2017

How we help

A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will launch a “Grey Muzzle Fund” to offer financial assistance specifically for older dogs with life-threatening illness or injuries. Specifically for older dogs, this program will work in tandem with the Save-a-Life Program which focuses on life-saving medical treatment for pets of all ages to prevent “economic euthanasia.”

About Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE)

FACE’s 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 cover the cost of their ill/injured pet's emergency or critical veterinary care.  With a tagline of Saving Pets and Helping Families, the goal of FACE is to make sure that no pet-parent ever has to make the heartbreaking decision to put their beloved four-legged companion to sleep due to financial hardship.

German Shepherd Rescue and Adoption

Funded from 2009 - 2014

The program has increased the rescue of senior GSD and GSD mixes from area shelters, as well as increased education and awareness of senior dog issues.
