Our Mission

Besides providing affordable spay/neuter, preventive care and general sick care and surgeries for dogs and cats, one of our goals is to also reduce breeding of cats and dogs. If you intend to breed your pet, we ask that you please seek services elsewhere.

Low-Cost Clinic

Our clinic is a low-cost clinic focused on providing quality veterinary care to those who may not be able to financially manage a large bill. That said, our services are not free and we do require payment at the time services are rendered.
