Spay and Neuter Clinic
(Updated January 25, 2023)
Bringing your pet to the Clinic
New places, people and animals can be stressful for any pet, including pets that otherwise seem calm and friendly. For this reason we require that all pets are kept in a secure carrier (cats and small dogs) or on a short, non-retractable, leash (dogs only), with an appropriately fit collar, (that they’re unable to back out of), while on the Clinic premises. This includes while they are waiting inside your vehicle.
Thank you for your support in keeping all pets safe while visiting the Clinic.
The clinic will be closed in observation of the following holidays
- Monday, February 20th - President's Day
Current COVID-19 Information
We are open during COVID-19. However, for staff and customer safety, the clinic building is employees only. There are no public restrooms available at this time.
We are now using a QR system to allow you to check in from your vehicle so you won’t need to wait in line. There are instructions on posts at each parking spot on how to check in on your cell phone. Please practice physical distancing.
