Clinic Eligibility Requirements for Dogs

Dog appointments availability may vary throughout the year.

Operation PETS reserves the right to limit dogs by type, group or organization and to focus on and limit schedule to specific high risk breeds as needed.

The two most common ways to qualify are as follows:

“Income Qualified Programs” for dog owners who meet one of the eligibility requirements listed below. These programs generally have a lower cost associated with the spay/neuter, rabies, DA2PPV (parvovirus-distemper) vaccines and Advantage.

Dog owners who do not meet the income guideline may be eligible for our “Spay it Forward” programs. This program provides services for those who do not meet the income but are in need of spay/neuter service.  This complete package includes spay/neuter, rabies, DA2PPV (parvovirus-distemper) vaccines and Advantage.          

           For your pet’s protection we recommend dogs have their                    first DA2PPV (parvovirus-distemper) vaccine prior to coming to the clinic  (vaccine takes up to two weeks to take effect).
