Covid-19 Updates

We are open! At this time we are only able to provide care to existing PIN Clinic clients with urgent medical needs. We hope to start providing care to new clients again very soon. We are not providing spay/neuter surgeries at this time.

We have been receiving hundreds of calls for appointments so please know it may take a number of weeks for your pet to receive an appointment.  

In order to be seen at PIN Clinic:

1. You must have private transportation since you will be asked to wait in your car. Please limit the number of people coming to PIN Clinic as much as possible. We kindly ask that only one or two people bring the pet. 
2. You must have a cell phone. Clients will not be allowed in the building and all communication will take place over the phone. 
3. You must wear a mask when we approach your car to take your animal. 
4. If you have had a fever in the last 72 hours or if you have been around someone that has been sick or tested positive for Covid-19, we kindly ask that you not call to schedule an appointment at this time.

If you need financial assistance to help pay for veterinary care at a veterinary clinic other than PIN Clinic, you may qualify for a voucher through the Companion Animal Foundation. For information about how to apply for financial assistance, please click HERE.
