Animal Clinic

    The Animal Clinic is committed to providing affordable, quality medical care to keep pets safe and in their homes. As a non-profit provider, we believe all pets deserve access to medical services to prevent future health problems. The Animal Clinic’s mission is to provide the preventative care your pet needs at an affordable rate.

    Since opening in 2016, the Animal Clinic has treated more than 30,000 patients. The Animal Clinic is a program of the Humane Society of Sarasota County, meaning all Animal Clinic proceeds support the care of the cats and dogs in the shelter

    The Animal Clinic is a wellness-focused practice. The Animal Clinic does not operate as a full-service veterinary practice, nor are we able to offer emergency medical care.


    HSSC's Animal Clinic strives to be an affordable resource for pets and owners in our community. If you are having trouble affording your pet's veterinary care, we can work with you. Please contact us to discuss your options.



    **The Animal Clinic is now located within the main HSSC shelter campus.**

    Preventative Care Programs

    The Animal Clinic offers core preventative programs to ensure pets remain free from harmful parasites like fleas, ticks, and heartworms. We also offer annual core vaccinations to prevent pets from getting sick from exposure to harmful viruses and diseases. We stress the importance of microchipping pets in case they ever get lost.
