WisCARES has clinics on Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday, and Friday. Clinics are by appointment or walk-in and are run by a combination of licensed veterinarian and veterinary students. We always have a licensed veterinarian see you pet, even if a student is managing the case. WisCARES currently offers exams, core vaccines, flea and tick preventative, spay and neuter services, dental services, laboratory testing, and medications. We have an ultrasound and x-ray machine. We can handle both healthy and sick pet needs–if you’re wondering if we can help, just call and ask!
WisCARES has two levels of eligibility:
Community clients qualify as low income–clients who are on or qualify for government assistance like food stamps and SSI. If you would like to ask if you are eligible for services, you can read about eligibility here or you can contact us. To find out more about being a Community client, click here.
WisCARES PLUS clients live in Dane County and are experiencing homelessness. PLUS clients receive further subsidized costs services. PLUS clients also qualify for social services, including our pet food pantry, boarding and foster, and other services. If you would like to ask if you are eligible for services, you can read about eligibility here or you can contact us. To find out more about being a PLUS client, click here.
Veterinary services can be walk-in or by appointment. Feel free to stop in for supplies whenever we are open. We do not require your pet to be spayed or neutered to access services. We allow you to self-certify for care and are experienced at offering compassionate and comprehensive care to you and your pet.
Please note that we do not offer emergency services, but we will do what we can to help out with urgent services. If you’re not sure if we can help your pet, please do call–we’re happy to answer questions and direct you elsewhere.
