How Do I Qualify?

Animal Humane’s Donor-subsidized Veterinary Clinic is a full-service clinic for qualifying low-income pet owners. This is not a free clinic; rather, there are reasonable fees associated with all services. You must prove your income status in order to obtain veterinary care. All sources of income (including non-taxable) must be included for all wage-earners in the household.

What proof of income do I need to provide?

  • Two (2) paycheck stubs dated within the last month for each wage earner
  • Or, your government award letter showing the total deposit amount of pay, Social Security, supplemental security, pension, retirement, survivors benefits, disability, and/or any other income
  • Or, W2s or tax documentation for the last calendar year (valid only if all income is taxable/reported).

Is my Medicaid/Insurance/EBT/Social Security Card sufficient proof?
No. Qualifications are determined based on household income.

Do I have to qualify in order to receive veterinary services?
With the exception of our monthly vaccination clinics and euthanasia services, which we offer to all pet owners to avoid unnecessary suffering of pets, you must qualify. Given that Animal Humane receives no city, state or federal funding to offset our annual $4.5 million dollar operating budget, we limit our services to pet owners who otherwise would not gain access to quality veterinary care for their beloved pets.

May I bring my proof of low-income status when I come to pick up my pet?
No. Proof of income must be provided at check in or services will not be rendered.

Is there a discount for senior citizens?
No. All clinic fees are substantially discounted already; no additional discounts are available.
