Effective August 31, 2015, the Clinic for Compassionate Care will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Our Clinic for Compassionate Care opened March 5, 2012. The response has been tremendous and many of you have thanked us for providing this service that you and your pets had long hoped would be available to the Richmond community.
Update (November 17, 2014): If you are not currently a client of the Clinic for Compassionate Care, please be advised that due to exceedingly high demand for our low-cost services, we are not able to accept new full-service clients, excluding adopters from the Richmond SPCA and veterinary referrals on a case-by-case basis, at this time. We hope to be able to accommodate new clients in the future, and such updates, when available, will be posted here.
