According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, veterinary care is out of reach for the pets of one of every four dog or cat owners.

To counter that shortcoming, Seattle Humane’s Community Medicine program provides affordable and accessible wellness care, vaccinations, and microchips. Wellness Clinic appointments are offered at the agency’s Bellevue campus and pop-up sites. Examples of the latter include Southeast Seattle Senior Center, where pets and their owners received some attention from the Community Medicine team Exams for pets can be scheduled at 425-649-7560 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
