We have limited capacity to take new clients. If you are interested in joining the program, call 352-372-4959 and leave a message with your name, phone number, county of residence and type of low income qualification (see list below).

If your pet has a medical emergency or condition that is out of scope for the Clinic, and if you qualify as a client of the Clinic, there are some funding organizations that might be able to help you. For more information, see sources of financial assistance.
