What is it?

  • A low cost vet clinic to serve Osceola County’s under resourced communities.

  • Grand opening was on Monday, August 9 at 10:00 am.


Background:

  • The clinic was made possible through a PetSmart Charities grant of $150,000 awarded to Osceola County to help purchase much needed equipment and offset operational costs. Osceola County Animal Services receives thousands of animals into its shelter each year and many of these pets have owners who cannot afford the cost of basic pet care.

  • Access to this new veterinary clinic will be limited to pet owners who are living at or near the poverty level based on the most current data.

  • The clinic will not be in competition with other local veterinary practitioners, as there will be income requirements in order for residents to access the low-cost services.

  • Protectors of Companion Animals, Inc. a 501(c) 3 non-profit, with the support of Osceola County Animal Services, opened SNiP-it of Central Florida, a high volume and quality, low cost spay/neuter animal clinic in August 2016. To date they have performed over 24,000 surgeries.


Who benefits:

  • The pets of residents who meet the requirements to use the facility.

  • The Veterinary Tech students at Harmony High School.
