The Dumb Friends League Veterinary Hospitals exists to prevent and alleviate suffering in pets whose caretakers would otherwise be unable to provide this care. Our mission is to increase access to veterinary care in the community by offering high quality urgent care and surgical services at an affordable rate, which is made possible by our generous community of donors.


Payment is due in full at the time of service. We accept all major credit cards, cash, checks, as well as CareCredit and Scratch Pay. Client’s seeking financial assistance may apply for our Compassion Plan
