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, 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.
Know a Vet?
CVC is looking for a veterinarian – for full-time or part-time work. So please spread the word. We have a new surgery, experienced staff, and clients who are good to work with. If interested, please call Charlotte 541-988-1990, or email us at CVCOregon@gmail.com.
CVC OPEN HOUSE
Our Open House this Fall was a wonderful celebration of CVC now and how far we have come, warmly shared with many friends and supporters.
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 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.
Enter your favorite video of your pet, and you may win one of our three cash prizes given in March! Watch for more details coming soon.

CVC depends on its generous donors to support its ongoing operations, including our Friendship Fund that makes financial assistance available when needed to offset some of the costs to clients. Donate here.
Capital Campaign. Our 12 x 27-foot surgery/x-ray/office addition is finished, thanks to our many donors throughout Lane County. We also received donations that have allowed us to buy several new state-of-the art supplies and equipment for surgery and recovery.
The NEXT GOAL in our Capital Campaign are these items: 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.)
While donations to the friendship fund are always appreciated and needed by our clients, if you would prefer to donate to the equipment, 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!
