Here’s a list of low cost vets or services that our local animal community has recommended. Please feel free to contact us with any recommendations you have for competitively low cost vets that are willing to work with individual rescuers and animal lovers on a tight budget, and or people who do not have the resources to provide for their pets’ basic veterinary care.
Please keep in mind that this list is not a list of GDO recommended services, rather a compilation of recommendations from the community. Please do your own due diligence on these clinics and vets and make sure you are comfortable with estimates and pricing before services are rendered.
If the businesses, clinic, or shelters have a website, we’ve included a hot link to their website – just click on the name.
