Low-Cost Vet Care
Our low-cost veterinary care is open to all dog and cat owners who seek affordable veterinary services such as:
- Wellness checks
- General preventative care
- Soft-tissue surgeries
- Pet dentals
By providing low-cost veterinary services to pets who might otherwise go without it, our veterinary clinic is preventing the birth of countless unwanted litters and reducing the flow of animals into shelters. Furthermore, our veterinary clinic helps to fund the care of the homeless animals in our Center awaiting forever homes.

To schedule a Wellness Clinic, pet dental or other soft-tissue surgery, please call 610-566-1370 x3. Our phone scheduling is voicemail-based, so you may not speak to someone upon your call, but please leave full information and within 72 business hours, a vet receptionist will return your call to confirm your appointment. Please do not leave multiple messages as it only delays our ability to return your call quickly. Please leave a phone number that you are available to answer Monday-Friday 9AM-5PM.

Providence Animal Center spays and neuters thousands of owned dogs and cats every year for families in the community. We require cats and dogs to be at least 4 months old for surgery. Proof of rabies vaccination is required (tag or certificate). If no vaccine history is present, the rabies vaccination can be administered during surgery for a fee. A physical exam is recommended for any senior pets (7 years old or older). Animals will receive a small green tattoo near the incision. Surgery is performed Monday-Friday, excluding holidays. Surgery sign-in begins promptly at 9AM and ends promptly at 9:30AM. Payment is required at the time of drop-off and may be in the form of cash, money order, credit card or debit card. Pick up is the same day; generally, your pet will be ready to go home between 4-5PM the same day. To make a spay/neuter appointment, click here.
