We provide preventative veterinary care, exams, parasite control, necessary medicines and supplies to the homeless and very low income families.
Criteria for Service: You must be homeless or receiving government subsidies/benefits (such as TANF, food stamps, etc.) to access our program. All pets in the household must be spayed or neutered. You must provide proof of benefits; please bring your award letter from the government agency.
Spay and Neuter: To maximize our resources and prevent unwanted litters of animals, ALL animals in your household must be altered: refusal to spay or neuter all your pets will bar you from our services. We will refer these surgeries to participating organizations; costs range between $10 and $40. If you do NOT show up at your pet’s alteration surgery your entire household will be permanently barred from our services. We share no-show information with partner agencies. A new non-surgical sterilization procedure for small to medium sized dogs will be offered at our clinics beginning in 2013.
Cost: PAW Team is a non-profit charitable organization. We primarily rely on donations to support our work. As of January 2013 PAW Team will require a co-pay of $5 per pet. No one will be turned away for true inability to pay.
