We are proud to offer the following free and low-cost services to our community.

Spay and Neuter

Our clinic is operated by appointment only. Call 410-749-7603 to check appointment availability. If we advise you to call back on a specific day, please be patient as we have limited medical staff. Be mindful that as the only free or low-cost option in the area, appointments do fill up very quickly.

Our staff veterinarians or clinic staff will contact you if we cannot perform the surgery due to medical concern for your pet and we may not be able to determine this until the pre-operation evaluation. In this instance, we reserve the right to not operate for the health and safety of your animal. We are NOT a full service animal hospital. Please advise staff of any existing medical conditions when you make your appointment. Certain pure bred animals are prone to genetic and medical issues that would preclude them from having surgery at our clinic. Our medical staff will evaluate these on a case by case basis.

Drop off time is scheduled in the am and pick up time is scheduled in the pm on your appointment day.

Be prompt for both times. Once we have started pre-surgical procedures, we can not accept any more animals as sterile conditions are imperative to the health of all pets in our clinic.

All animals must be restrained or contained at drop off and pick up. Dogs must be on a leash with collar or harness. Cats must be in an appropriate size carrier or trap. Please make sure your carrier is big enough for the animal to be comfortable.

Payments are CASH, CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD ONLY and due upon pick-up of the animals. We do not accept checks as payment. If for any reason, you do not pick up your animal on the day of surgery, you will be charged for overnight boarding.

On the night before surgery, DO NOT allow your animal to eat food or treats nor drink water after midnight. This is for the health and safety of your animal as they will be given medications for sedation and we do not want them to vomit food or water while they are sedated. We understand animals can get in to things, if you believe your pet did ingest food or water after midnight, still bring them in for surgery and advise staff. We have medicine to help with this, but you may have a small upcharge to your bill.

We reserve the right to adjust our prices of the procedure on special clinic days based on the vet we have performing the surgery and the need for extra staff.

Food Bank

We have a food bank for Wicomico County pet owners needing assistance feeding their pets. Our bank includes various brands of dry dog and cat food, kitty litter, and sometimes small animal food. To sign up, we require you submit this form (hyperlink) and provide a rabies certificate for each animal you need food for. Please call with your needs before you come so we can have your items available for you upon arrival.


A few times a year we will offer low-cost rabies clinics. We have none scheduled at this time, but when we do it will be advertised on our website and social media.

Trap Rental

Wicomico County Animal Control will not trap cats. The Humane Society has traps available for rent to those who have free roaming cats causing issue around their homes. By providing traps, we are able to reduce the number of unwanted or feral felines in our community, or help reunite a lost cat with their owner. To rent a trap, we require a $50 refundable cash deposit. The deposit will be refunded when we are returned the trap. Contact us if you need to spay or neuter the cats.
