We are not yet able to accept new appointment requests. Please read to the end of this update for full details. Thank you!
Prior to the pandemic, the Spay/Neuter Clinic relied on a scheduling model that required large gatherings of clients at check-in and check-out. Due to the ongoing concerns of COVID-19, the unique requirements of our tight surgical spaces, and the safety or our clients, volunteers, and staff, we needed to temporarily suspend services. During that time, we converted our lobby space into a warehouse and played a critical role in distributing nearly 90,000lbs of pet food to community food banks, helping to ensure no one would struggle to feed their animal during these uncertain times. We also used the time to critically evaluate the various ways to proceed safely. Since then, we’ve been offering a limited number of spay/neuter surgeries, creating an opportunity for us to slowly rebuild our service model in a way that strengthens social distancing and safety for both our clients and staff.
What if my appointment was cancelled due to the pandemic?
At this current stage, we are giving priority to clients with pre-existing appointments that were cancelled in response to our forced closure. If you were one of these cancelled appointments and haven’t already heard from us, you will receive an email with instructions on how to reschedule your appointment. We are rescheduling clients in order of the original appointment dates and have over 1,000 clients to contact. We ask that you please refrain from calling the clinic prior to receiving your rescheduling email -- this will help reduce our call volume, better enabling us to support our clients and the animals in our care as quickly as we can.
What if I would like to schedule a new appointment?
Once we have served the rescheduled clients, we will be able to reopen our schedule to new appointments. We are unable to provide a date of when we’ll be able to accept new clients, but we promise to update our Facebook page and this site as soon as we are able to do so. Unfortunately, as much as we wish we could welcome you all back at once, this isn’t a situation we can rush. We simply cannot operate at our pre-pandemic capacity without risking the health and safety of everyone involved. We’re so grateful for your patience and understanding – your support through these challenging times means the world to our team!
What if I adopted my pet from WHS with a spay/neuter voucher?
Please call us at 414-323-6163 and we will work with you to get your new family member a spay/neuter appointment.
Before you visit or call, please note:
- As always, our services are by appointment only.
- To ensure the safety of our staff and clients, our lobby is closed. Clients must stay in their vehicle when they arrive at their scheduled appointment time. A staff member will guide you through our curbside check-in/out procedures when you arrive. Masks are required when interacting with our staff.
- Clients should not come to the spay/neuter clinic if they are experiencing any symptoms of illness. We will work with you to reschedule or coordinate sending a family member or friend in your place. If you need to explore these alternatives, please call us at 414-323-6163. Please note: pets exposed to COVID-positive people should not come to the clinic within 2 weeks of exposure.
- Due to high call volume, you will need to leave a voicemail when you call. Please allow up to 3 business days for a callback on any non-emergency inquiries.
