Stand For Animals Veterinary Clinic
Stand for Animals (formerly Spay Neuter Charlotte) was founded in 2011 to end the unnecessary euthanasia of thousands of homeless pets in the local shelter by providing high quality, low cost spay neuter to prevent unwanted litters. Recognizing that we were meeting the needs of pet owners who had not previously had access to affordable care we evolved our practice into the first of a kind non-profit veterinary clinic. Our mission is to make high-quality care accessible to all pet owners so that all pets are able to have the care they need to keep them happy and healthy throughout their lives.
All fundraising proceeds are allocated to the clinic’s Medical Assistance Fund which provides financial subsidies to pet owners who need this support in order to care for their pet.
To date the Medical Assistance Fund has provided $310,000 in subsidies for treatment to more than 12,300 pet owners. The clinics also offer non-interest bearing payment plans as most of our clients are able to pay but need more time.
- We have fixed 132,000 dogs and cats, and over 8,500 community cats.
- The clinics see seen more than 75,000 patients a year for veterinary care.
- There are 53 part and full-time staff members: 6 vets, 26 vet assistsants, and 21 admin staff.
