Low-Income Veterinary Services
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, we help low income caregivers by providing quality, comprehensive and compassionate veterinary care. Our appointments are on a sliding scale according to income and some assistance may be available to offset some of the costs. 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 OPEN HOUSE
We can’t wait to show you the new x-ray and surgery suite at CVC – financed completely by local animal lovers. Our Open House is Oct. 1 at 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., at 470 Highway 99N in Eugene.
After five years of operation, starting with a completely volunteer staff open one day a week doing basic exams and vaccinations, we see an average of 50 animals a week, providing 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.
Please come by to tour our beautiful little clinic, meet our staff and board members, and enjoy doggie treats and human sweets. We are so happy we can’t stop wagging our tongues and tails!
CVC at the Em’s game
CVC was the featured community organization at the Eugene Emerald’s baseball game on September 10. Our logo was on the big scoreboard several times with announcements about us. The Ems gave us a table in a prime spot to talk to people. Thanks to the Emeralds for hosting us and we got to watch them win the playoff game.
Capella Market’s August fundraising benefited CVC. Capella furnished the raffle prize – a very cool Burley Travoy bike trailer – with raffle ticket proceeds going to CVC. Also, the celebratory BBQ on August 19 benefited CVC, and featured Capella’s delicious natural foods. The animals say thanks!
A community of animal lovers seeks to expand low-cost vet clinic

CVC depends on its generous donors to keep its doors open and provide ongoing supplies for the new surgery. Donate here.
Capital Campaign. Our 12 x 27-foot addition will soon be finished, thanks to our many donors throughout Lane County. Before, we have had to send out desperately ill pets to a for-profit clinic and help the client pay the cost out of our funds.
The NEXT GOAL in our Capital Campaign is to upgrade 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 donate on line by designating the capital campaign, 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!
