Pet Partners was founded by a group of co-workers and volunteers with years of animal shelter experience. Their original intention was to help solve the animal overpopulation problem by offering free to low-cost spay/neuter and wellness services. Since attaining non-profit status in 2000, the clinic has performed over 18,000 surgeries and has seen over 30,000 clinic visits.
We welcome any pet, regardless of its owner's income level and residence. We aim to serve any animal in need.
