PAWS clinic keeps pets healthy and in their homes

The Banfield Charitable Trust has announced that for the second year running, they will support PAWS’ efforts to provide low-cost preventive veterinary care to at-risk pets at our Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic. In doing so, they are helping us keep pets healthy, in their homes, and out of shelters.

PAWS’ Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic, located at 2900 Grays Ferry Avenue, offers wellness check-ups, vaccinations, parasite prevention, and other services to pet owners who may otherwise lack the ability to access affordable care. The clinic aims to help pet owners provide proper basic care for their pets, reduce the number of animals surrendered to shelters by their owners due to an inability to care for them, and prevent the birth of unwanted litters.

The clinic is open seven days a week and provides basic services and spay/neuter surgery by appointment. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., we hold walk-in vaccination clinics ($25 per pet), making it convenient and affordable for pet owners to access care. Our clinic’s work is possible thanks to the generous contributions of PAWS supporters; please click here to make a donation.

Here are a few pets (and the people who love them) who visited during our walk-in days. . .
