If you have an appointment already scheduled with our Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic -- thank you! The VHS is implementing the following procedures to ensure safe distancing for our clients and staff.
Safe distancing Pick-up and Check-in for VHS Spay/Neuter Clinic
The VHS has now expanded the waiting area in the lobby. You are required to follow these rules:
Check-In (8:00 am for dogs, 8:15 am for cats & rabbits the day of surgery)
Check in begins at 8:00 am or when pick up is completed. If you arrive early for check-in, you will need to wait in your vehicle until we put out the sign in front of the building that says "Check-In".
Admission forms will be available on the porch. Take 1 per pet unless you have printed and filled them out from here or our website.
Once you have completed the admission form, look to see if we have turned the sign in front of the building from "Pick Up" to "Check In". Enter the building once Check-In begins.
Pick Up (7:30 am the day after surgery)
Enter the lobby upon arrival.
The clinic patient flow requires patients being picked up from the previous day’s surgeries to be sent home before we can begin checking in the day’s new patients. Please be on time at 7:30. We do add on a $15 late fee if you are not here on time.
We will go over the care instructions as a group. You may ask for clarifications at your turn to check out.
We will review your pet's surgery sheet and other services with you, take payment (no checks or American Express), and reunite your pet with you.
Again, dogs take priority so we can clean their cages.
Please follow this process so we can all remain safe. If the signs or volunteers show modifications of this process when you arrive, follow their instructions. This email will come to you 7, 3, and 1 day before your appointment. Check the date of the latest update to see if we have changed it between mailings.
We appreciate your extended patience as we navigate this "new normal." This will take some getting used to, but we are committed to making your Clinic experience as easy as we possibly can while still keeping you and our team safe. See you soon!
