What type of payment do you take?
We only accept cash and ask for it at check-in.

Do you give pain medication?
We give pain medication as part of our pre-anesthetic protocol We also give supplemental pain medication after surgery which will extend pain relief for 24 hours.

What do I have to do to qualify?
Our clinic is for people who cannot afford to go to a full-service vet for spay/neuter surgeries because of their income or because they have numerous animals. We want to help you fix your pet. Call to learn more!

Can animals come to your clinic just for shots or parasite control?
No, we only offer these services when an animal is in for spay/neuter surgery.

Do animals spend the night at your clinic?
No, there is no one here overnight so we want animals to go home where they can be observed. The only exception is for feral cats in traps who have no warm place to stay overnight. Arrangements for feral cats must be made ahead of time.

Do you alter rabbits?
No, our primary focus is cats, but when time allows, we alter smaller, younger dogs. We don't offer rabbit neutering at all.

How come your prices are lower than other vets?
We can offer lower fees for people in need for several reasons. First, we are a nonprofit organization and get grants and donations. Also, we do do not have many overhead costs full-service veterinarians do because we only do spay/neuter surgeries. We also do many surgeries a day and do not take individual appointments. We believe in spaying and neutering to help reduce pet overpopulation, but we also feel it is very important that all people with pets establish a relationship with a local vet. Animals, like people, need preventive and other health care and our clinic does not offer these services.
