Veterinary Care Program
Our mission is to provide quality, low-cost veterinary services to our community; help families to keep their pets and community cats healthy; and avoid preventable euthanasia or medical neglect due to financial constraints. Our veterinary clinic helps to fund the care of homeless animals at our shelter. All services are provided by local veterinarians.
