Local Bulldogs Were Invited to Participate in First Ever “Running of the Bulldogs” in downtown San Diego. DowntownDogLover.com hosted a “Running of the Bulldogs” as part of their official Launch PAW-ty festivities on Saturday August 8, 2009.

They invite all breeds of bulldog (including American, Aussie, English & French) to participate in the charity event which took dogs and their owners on a 6 block course through downtown San Diego ending at the DDL Launch PAW-ty. Participants were required to dress in all white or light khaki could run, walk or wheel their dogs through a small downtown course for $10.00 per dog. A portion of proceeds will go to the FACE Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that provides financial grants to animal owners who are unable to partially or fully cover the cost of their pet’s emergency or critical care.

Pet PawDid you know?  Many sick and injured pets are abandoned or euthanized because their owners are unable to cover the cost of their emergency or critical care needs.

The FACE Foundation provides financial assistance to animal owners who are unable to cover the full cost of their pets’ critical or emergency veterinary care.

As many people today experience increasing economic challenges, their pets are suffering too. The number of people who cannot afford critical medical care for their sick or injured pet is growing at an alarming rate.

In what is being labeled as ‘economic euthanasia,’ these beloved 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.

The FACE Foundation is the first of its kind in San Diego County. While there are wonderful charitable groups focused on finding homes for pets without families, there are no other organizations that are singularly dedicated to saving the lives of pets that are already in loving homes, but whose families cannot pay for all or part of the emergency or critical care they need to survive.

FACE relies solely on donations 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.
