At our Veterinary Medical Center we are dedicated to building a relationship with you and your pet through knowledgeable, compassionate care and honest client communication.

Our non-profit veterinary hospital is located within our animal shelter complex and provides a full range of services for the pet owning public in addition to our primary mission of caring for the animals at our shelter, injured stray animals from throughout Ada County and wildlife as well. However, in accordance with the Idaho Veterinary Medical Association, certain services require clients to be income qualified. You can read more about this information by clicking HERE.

Since 1997, we’ve spayed and neutered over 160,000 pets at our hospital! As part of our ongoing effort to end pet overpopulation, the hospital currently spays and neuters over 10,000 dogs, cats, ferrets and rabbits each year. Additionally, other medical procedures such as dentistry and orthopedic surgery are routinely performed. Our staff of licensed veterinarians treats over 20,000 animals each year, and are available by appointment seven days per week.

Choosing a veterinarian is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in ensuring a long healthy life for your pet. The Treasure Valley has many fine veterinary hospitals and practitioners to choose from, consult our directory for the names and locations of local veterinary hospitals.

Whether adopted from our shelter, or obtained elsewhere, you and your pet are welcome at our facility. However, it is important to understand that our hospital will only treat or perform procedures that are directly related to the promotion of animal health and well being and the prevention of cruelty to animals. We do not provide services that are not in the best interest of the animal involved, including cosmetic surgery; artificial insemination or other breeding programs; or surgical mutilations such as ear cropping, tail docking or declawing. Additionally, any owner receiving charitable services from our hospital must agree to have their pet sterilized as a condition of receiving the benefit of any of our charitable assistance programs.
