Animal Samaritans offers help for those in need of for veterinary care

Mr. Rogers, who had come to the shelter with a broken leg, which was later amputated, was adopted and now has a wonderful and loving home.

In a normal year, Animal Samaritans serves roughly 65,000 clients through its low-cost veterinary clinics. While the nonprofit is a comprehensive animal welfare organization offering community outreach, therapy animal programming and pet adoptions, it has turned its focus to veterinary services throughout the pandemic.

The organization offers affordable veterinary care and financial aid for low-income clients who cannot afford these services. Its mission is to keep pets with their guardians.

The demand for services has steadily increased throughout COVID-19, even as the organization has managed staff shortages caused by safety protocols and unexpected quarantines. The organization has also had to pare down the number of clients it sees daily and transition to curbside services to control the flow of patients.
