Animal Humane Society Veterinary Centers wellness services

Preventative care is one of the keys to keeping your pets healthy and protecting them from common diseases.

Animal Humane Society Veterinary Centers offer high-quality, low-cost wellness services to pet owners with limited incomes, military personnel and veterans, feral cat caretakers, and nonprofit rescue organizations.

Review eligibility requirements

We do not have the ability to treat sick or injured animals. If your pet is lethargic, not eating, has labored breathing, is vomiting, or has a severe injury, please see your local veterinarian or consider visiting another clinic that provides affordable services.

Walk-in wellness visits

Wellness services are offered at Melrose Animal Clinic in Golden Valley. Walk-in visits are welcome:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays: 9 a.m. ‒ 4 p.m. (staff break from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch)
  • Saturdays: 9 a.m. ‒ 1 p.m.

When you and your pet arrive, we will provide an approximate time your pet will be seen. The last patient is seen at 3:20 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and at 12:20 p.m. on Saturdays.

Due to the nature of veterinary medicine and the unpredictable flow of patients, please be aware that wait times can be unpredictable and that we may reach capacity for walk-ins before the designated end time. We apologize for any inconvenience or long wait you may encounter while seeking care for your pet. Thank you for your patience!
