Our Veterinary Medical Center is dedicated to building a relationship with you and your pet through knowledgeable, compassionate care and honest client communication.
Our nonprofit 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 strays and occasionally even wildlife.
Please note that our services are not for everyone, and we are not an ordinary clinic. In accordance with the Idaho Veterinary Medical Association, certain services require clients to be income qualified – you can read the specifics here. We are the only veterinary charity in the area, and our waiting room is filled with individuals who have nowhere else to turn for veterinary care. On many days – particularly during our walk-in clinic on the weekends – it is not unusual for clients to wait hours to see a veterinarian. If you have the means to seek veterinary care elsewhere, we encourage you to consult our directory of local veterinary hospitals.
Our staff of licensed veterinarians treat more than 20,000 animals each year. 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 won’t 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.
