Veterinary Clinic with Sliding Scale Charges Matched with Income
Being a pet’s caregiver provides so many emotional benefits to humans! We experience longer, less stressful and more enjoyable lives because of the love animals provide us, but sometimes the cost of caring for animals can make it difficult to commit to an animal.
At Community Veterinary Center, our focus is helping low income caregivers. Because our appointments are on a sliding scale according to income, anyone can use our quality, comprehensive and compassionate veterinary care. Call 541-636-3324 today and we’ll be happy to help you find a solution for your pet needs at a rate you can afford.

CVC has provided more than 60 spays and neuters to dogs and cats with low-income humans. The surgeries are being done in-house in CVC’s new sterile surgery, or through vouchers to Willamette Animal Guild. We are so thankful for the generous grant of $19,800 from the DJ&T Foundation, which will fund this service for our clients through 2019.
Our clinic expanded last fall with the addition of a surgery, x-ray room, and office space.
Only five years ago, we started as a completely volunteer staff open one day a week doing basic exams and vaccinations. Now we see an average of 50 animals a week, and can provide full-service (diagnostic, prognostic, surgical, preventative, and recuperative) veterinary care to pets who would otherwise have no help. Thanks, from all of us and all the happy pets, to our generous and faithful donors – this is your achievement as well.

CVC depends on its generous donors to support its ongoing operations, including our Friendship Fund that makes financial assistance available to offset some of the costs to clients who cannot afford services needed for their pets. Donate here.
Donations to the Friendship Fund are appreciated by our clients, and we also have a wish list for supplies for our clinic that range from $20 to $400. If you would prefer to donate toward capital equipment, we are in need of an autoclave that costs $6,000, an Chemistry analyzer for $12,000, and upgrading our film x-ray to digital which requires a $30,000 software program. (Digital x-rays can be manipulated, which cuts down on the need for a second exposure.)
You can specify the use of your donation when you give on line, or by mail to P.O. Box 10971, Eugene OR 97440. If you’d like to stop by the clinic for a tour we’d be delighted, just please call first. Thank you, and all the needy pets will thank you too! Donate here.
