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.

A community of animal lovers seeks to expand low-cost vet clinic

The Community Veterinary Center’s mandate is to provide the care the pet of a low-income person may need. To that end, we have embarked on a Capital Campaign to raise the necessary funds to build a 12 x 27-foot addition on our clinic that will give us a sterile surgery. At this time, we send out these desperately ill pets, to a for-profit clinic and help the client pay the cost out of our funds.
This addition is an expensive—but necessary—project. We are glad to report that we have raised enough money to build the exterior of the building and buy surgical equipment (we have started that process), and are still needing to raise funds for the interior – flooring, cabinets with sink, interior walls and doors.
Our goal is also 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!
