Animal Humane's Donor-subsidized Veterinary Clinic

Affordable Veterinary Care

Quality veterinary care is a vital service for every pet.  Because that care can be so expensive, Animal Humane has a Donor-subsidized Veterinary Clinic to exclusively serve income-qualifying clients.  Our services are offered at reduced prices thanks to funding from our generous donors.  Our Clinic Team is highly skilled & we offer appointment-based primary & preventative care including spay/neuter & advanced surgical services for both client owned & shelter pets.

About Our Clinic

Animal Humane’s Donor-subsidized Veterinary Clinic, located on our Main Campus, at 615 Virginia St. SE, plays a crucial role in ensuring pets stay healthy & with their families. As New Mexico’s first & only low-cost Veterinary Clinic exclusively for qualifying low-income pet owners, we provide much needed care for those who cannot afford to take their pets to private veterinary practices.

Renovated in October 2007, with valuable funding from private donors & foundations, Animal Humane’s Clinic also provides quality medical care for the nearly 4,500 homeless pets that we shelter annually—many of whom will require spay/neuter, medical & behavior services to become ready for adoption.

Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) is a comprehensive, ongoing program in which free-roaming & feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, & rural areas are humanely trapped, medically evaluated, vaccinated & sterilized by veterinarians, then returned to their original location.

Animal Humane New Mexico & the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department are collaborating through the support of a grant from the ASPCA to increase adoptions community-wide as well as decrease pet intakes throughout Albuquerque shelters.
