The mission of the Metro Action Clinic includes:
  • To reduce, and ultimately eliminate the killing of healthy, otherwise adoptable dogs and cats at area pounds and shelters, simply because they are surplus or cannot be sheltered. This is accomplished by providing affordable, accessible SPAY/NEUTER services to anyone in need of those services, thereby preventing the birth of unwanted animals.

  • To provide veterinary medical services to the inner-city community at an affordable rate, in order to save lives, promote the health of companion animals, and foster the human-animal bond.

  • To advocate for animals, assist animal caretakers, and educate the public about the needs of animals.

Medical Services Provided:
  • Physical Exam
