Providing veterinary services is important to keep the whole family stable. Not only does it ensure the health and well-being of the pet but most housing programs require that resident pets be vaccinated and spayed/neutered. Veterinary services remove pet-related barriers to housing stability.
To qualify for veterinary care you must be low-income and living between Snohomish and Index, a client of Esther’s Place (Everett) and/or a current/former foster boarding family.
Veterinary services are for family pets living in the home. These services are offered to help families close financial gaps that compromise your pet's health or jeopardize your pet remaining in the family home. Animals intended to be rehomed, adopted or for sale are not eligible for services.
PAY WHAT YOU CAN CLINICS are held monthly and are for wellness care. We offer exams, vaccines, flea tx, deworming, nail trims and microchips for cats and dogs. Please do not bring sick or injured animals to the clinic.
EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2019: We will no longer be offering our Full Service Veterinary subsidy on a regular basis. Due to the high demand in our Foster Boarding Program we are are moving funds to expand our foster services. We will, on occasion, receive grant funding specifically to offer full service veterinary treatment. We currently do not have grant funding for full service veterinary care available at this time.
About Veterinary Services
We require that your pet be spayed or neutered to be eligible for our services. If you are applying to our Foster Boarding Program and your pet is not spayed or neutered you must consent to do so while they are in our care in order to be considered for the program.
The following low cost spay and neuter clinics are available to low-income families: Feral Cat Spay & Neuter Clinic (Lynnwood), Pasado's Safe Haven (Sultan), NOAH (Stanwood) and Homeward Pet (Woodinville)
If you have scheduled your spay/neuter appointment we will provide services to your family with a copy of your confirmed appointment.
