Kindest Cut to become AHS Veterinary Centers on August 1

AHS Veterinary Center

Kindest Cut is getting a new name!

On August 1 our Kindest Cut clinics will be renamed Animal Humane Society Veterinary Centers.

AHS launched Kindest Cut in 2011 to provide low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for pets of people in need. The program has since grown to provide additional services — including preventative care, dental services, and specialty surgeries — to pets of income-qualified individuals and families, military personnel and veterans, and other nonprofit rescue organizations.

The new name reflects the expanded mission of our clinics and will make it easier for people to find, understand, and use our low-cost services.

Our veterinary centers include a brick-and-mortar clinic at AHS in Golden Valley and a mobile clinic that offers spay/neuter surgeries in communities across the Twin Cities metro area. A new full-service clinic on University Avenue in St. Paul will open in 2020.

Preventative care, dental services, and specialty surgeries

In addition to spay/neuter surgery, AHS veterinary centers provide:

  • Flea and tick preventatives

  • Microchipping
  • Vaccines (rabies, distemper, Lyme)
  • Diagnostic testing (heartworm, FeLV, urinalysis)
  • Dental cleaning and extractions
  • Eye surgeries
  • And more!

No appointment is necessary for wellness exams — walk-ins are welcome! You can visit our Golden Valley clinic for a wellness exam on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Read more about walk-in wellness appointments.
