Getting to the Clinic

We Go Where the Animals Need Us

TRANSPORTATION IS FREE!

While our clinic is located in the eastern part Sarasota County, our reach extends through several surrounding counties. We can now reach outlying communities with our specially designed transport vehicle. Our team can be seen driving out to Desoto County or down to Charlotte County each month to transport our “patients” to and from their families.

How It Works

  • Just call us to book your appointment and tell us you are interested in the free transportation. Our schedulers will register you and give you information about our transport schedule and pick-up locations
  • You and your pet meet our veterinary technicians at the confirmed central location around 7:30 in the morning, complete the paperwork, make any required payment and your pet will be loaded onto the transport. Dogs will be placed in carriers. WE ASK THAT CATS ARRIVE IN CARRIERS
  • Your pets will arrive at our clinic, have their scheduled procedure and be returned to you either the same day between 4 and 5pm or at 7:30 am the following day, depending on distance and/or number of animals scheduled.
