About the WisCARES Pet Care Clinic

WisCARES has clinics on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday, and Saturday–we hope to be open 6 days a week soon. Clinics are by appointment only and are run by a combination of licensed veterinarian and veterinary students. WisCARES currently offers exams, core vaccines, flea and tick preventative, spay and neuter, some surgeries, laboratory testing, and medications. We will be opening up for x-ray and dentals soon.

All pet care clinic services are by appointment only–you are welcome to stop in to talk, pick up supplies and do intake during any open hours.

WisCARES has two levels of service:


Community Clients:

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, check out our page here or contact us. To find out more about being a Community client, click here.


PLUS Clients:

WisCARES PLUS clients live in Dane County and are experiencing or at-risk 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, check out our page here or contact us.

Veterinary services are by appointment only, but 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. As we are just getting started, we do often have same-day or next-day appointments–feel free to call us if you are in need of services!
