Clinic Eligibility Requirements for Dogs
CURRENTLY DOG APPOINTMENTS ARE UNDER VERY RESTRICTED GUIDELINES!!!
Operation PETS reserves the right to limit dogs by type, group or organization and to focus on and limit the 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 and have a healthy dog under 30 pounds….
may be eligible for our “Spay it Forward” programs, depending upon appointment availability. 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).
